Call of Duty Teaser Countdown Site Tricked, Picture Revealed

The internet was recently abuzz with the rumor of a Modern Warfare 3 reveal after a countdown timer appeared on the site findmakarov.com and Call of Duty dog tags were sent out to select press. It was later revealed that in fact the countdown was most probably for a live-action Call of Duty short from Toronto based team We Can Pretend, although some still speculate that WCP are simply a red herring and a MW3 reveal is still coming. Eager to find out more about the countdown, one rather smart YouTube user has tricked the timer into revealing its surprise prematurely. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

YUCK!!!...COD bores me hey activision take a 5 year break then release another COD then we might actually see something innovative....sorry COD fans im just disappointed.

Its not MW3 (the game itself) related. At least it doenst look like it. It sets it up but Im not sure it has anything to do with Activision or Infinity Ward.

Looks a billion times better than that CoD ever could. And I dont mean visually, The setting at the end looked so much more interesting than anything Iv seen in CoD.

Id rather watch a full version of this than buy MW3

Watch this article go up to 500+ degrees. That's how interested and excited people are with the next CoD. I honestly think it's pretty sad.

It's nothing to do with Activision or Infinity ward, its a video made by We Can Pretend who are looking to spark a deal to gain filming rights from Activision.You have got to agree that they did a good job at getting the attention from Activision and the public by sparking rumors that it could be a Modern Warfare 3 reveal.

Every call of duty sells over 20 million...
So i guess you cant do nothing against it... 20 million every year and it grows always
doctorstrange  +   1680d ago
Live action shorts, can't wait
NJShadow  +   1679d ago
I skip Call of Duties in-between Modern Warfares, or games developed by Infinity Ward, so I do get a healthy break between titles. Bring on Modern Warfare 3! >=D

hmmm me too really...


Kind of how ND release an Uncharted game every 2 years but I just don't feel that Infinity put much love in their game they are really greedy.

After the multimillion sales you would think they could afford to release some free map packs or spend some time on a better engine :/

I much prefer Treyarch versions as Zombies is one of my favourite CoD things.. But that's just me.
peowpeow  +   1678d ago
As do I, nazi zombies was the reason for many great gaming sessions with friends but regardless I haven't purchased MW2 or BO

For people that actually thought that, they are idiots.

Why do we care when BF3 is coming out? :O
guigsy  +   1679d ago
You care enough to post a comment, you and many others who supposedly "don't care".
wicko  +   1679d ago
well, yeah, there are varying degrees of caring and in this case I care very little.

Hoax site is a hoax

I am very D:<
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1679d ago
So the site was tricked that easily huh? You can tell they got some lazy programmers

*cough*Black Ops*cough*
limewax  +   1679d ago
Not just that, since its based on internal clock, over here in the UK the countdown finished about half an hour ago
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1679d ago
lol thats too funny!
Redempteur  +   1679d ago
that's what i call good web design /s

all they had to do what to initialize the clock on the web server clock and this would have been avoided
NeloAnjelo  +   1679d ago
So the site was hacked like the previous game? A site of things to come I guess...
TheLastGuardian  +   1679d ago
Who cares?
Krakn3Dfx  +   1679d ago
All you have to do is wait patiently, and Activision will run every popular IP they have into the ground until no one cares about it anymore.

It's now a sustainable business model, but who cares about sustainable when you're Bobby Kotick and have more money than God?

i hope they get sued by activision.

Why? Umad?
dkgshiz  +   1679d ago
I just don't get how someone can still be entertained by the same game for this long. This has been going on since 2007 when COD4 came out. Give it a rest already.
Black102WingS  +   1679d ago
The question I always ask myself, why do I buy cod every year since cod4?
dragon82  +   1678d ago
I will be adding this to my collection. I just hope they make the online worth my time with this one.

DiLeCtioN  +   1678d ago
Its going to take a lot this year for me to actually buy a COD game.

Ill make sure i pick a very good shooter to keep me entertained for some time.
SpLinT  +   1678d ago
lol no one better buy this. And you know its gonna get marketted so you better now fall for it. Let this series die for at least 1-2 years by not buying this trash
