VG247: Uh oh. Activision Blizzard just called Inifity Ward's upcoming super-sequel "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" in its Q1 earnings call. Thought the Call of Duty had been dropped?
is it call of duty modern warfare 2 or just modern warfare 2?
to be literal it would be Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2. That is why I think they dropped the CoD aspect of the name.
I think Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would make the most sense, you can't take out the "Call of Duty" without alienating some casual players. The "Modern Warfare" name is big, but everyone I know still refers to the game as "Call of Duty 4" or "COD4".
Everybody knows that COD4 was really COD3, and now the new Modern Warfare 2 will be COD4. Even the menu screens on COD4 say COD3. It's just Infinity Wards way of giving Treyarch the finger. ;-)
personally, im just gunna start calling it cod6, im sure many of my friends will know what game im talking about...lol i never really called call of duty 4: modern warfare "cod mw" i simply referred it as "cod4"...then there was "cod5" or "WaW" or "cod:WaW" (when texting to friends) and now this...cod:mw2, prolly go with "cod6" or "mw2"(this one doesnt sound too good tho)
If this is the case it makes sense, the game could be great but the Call of Duty branding will make it sell regardless. How many people really called COD 4 Modern Warfare? "Hey you wanna play some Call of Duty?" or "Hey you wanna play some Modern Warfare?", I've personally seen the first used more often.
You're absolutely right.
Personally now that WaW is out, I've been hearing people say, hey you wanna play WaW or modern warfare?
My friends either say Call of Duty of literally just say cod. (same with me) Although I like the title 'Modern Warfare', Call of Duty just sounds good.
It's kinda hard to understand what they're trying to say
All I want is to play the game and enjoy it as much as COD4...
Call of Duty is a more well known brand than "Modern Warfare 2" For the more casual gamers who may have loved the first but not picked up on the name change it could mean the difference between buying a game and missing it. Good move imo.
Damn now all the kids in the block will know it's a Call of Puberty game and they'll buy the hell out of it
so the name is now important for people to be banging on about:/ Just show us some more news, we don't care about the name
CoD WaW CoD MW CoD MW2 CoD Fall of Saigon etc. We all know that MW2 is as much a CoD game as WaW so MW2 shouldn't loose its roots.
What there's some kind of moral debate around Call of Duty's name now?
Don't forget Call of this is a stupid debate
but the bathroom was occupied :)im sorry that was terrible
Funny in a dumb way, but funny none the less.
Good for them! I'm one of those 13 million! xD
Damn, they need to make up their minds already. Is is COD or is it not COD (and the obligatory: That is the Question?) Guess it doesn't matter, as long as it's as good as COD4 I couldn't care less what they actually call it.
Who cares what it's called? I'm still going to get it.
Actually that would be funny. Make an awesome game and call it something dirty so whenever people mention in they have to say it. Haha. Immature humor FTW.
