Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released in November of 2009, Call of Duty: Black Ops was released in November of 2010, so now that Activision has announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, guess what month it's coming out?
Call of Duty is one of the most powerful brands in the gaming industry. The most recent release, Black Ops, became the fastest-selling video game of all time. The game it beat to score that record was, in fact, another Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 2.
Because the franchise is nothing but a huge cash cow, Activision has begun to churn them out like butter. Instead of traditional video game series in which a new title is released once every 2-3 years, the publisher has been releasing one every year.
Modern Warfare 3 will pick up where MW2 left off, allowing players the chance to live modern-day combat situations instead of the more traditional war shooters that tend to take place around the World War 2 era.
So far, not much is known about Modern Warfare 3, but we expect to see more details coming soon down the pike.
