Activision drops official Modern Warfare 2 release date

After confirming Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 earlier this year, Activision finally reveals when the game will arrive.

According to the official Call of Duty Twitter account, Modern Warfare 2 will come out on October 28.

Infinity Ward also threw in a video alongside the release date reveal.

The fairly realistic footage of a container ship sees a series of tactical pronouncements and close-ups of familiar faces as the ship docks to show a mural of Ghost's face.

Modern Warfare 2 will have big if controversial shoes to fill.

The game's dark and gritty story set a new standard for the Call of Duty franchise that hasn't been matched since.

Hopefully, Infinity Ward used the past three years well enough to craft a similarly gripping tale.
