Botchweed: "I keep my ear pressed to the internet at all times (I get killer neck cramps) and have been hearing whispers of a possible release date for Modern Warfare 3."
I think that date is almost certainly a given.
It's definitely not the release date and I'll tell you why. Every CoD since MW at least has had a worldwide release on a tuesday, and the 11th is a Friday. I'd put my money on the 8th of November as this is a Tuesday!
11/11/11 may be the UK date..
eh..i don't see CoD releasing so early I'd say a US date of 11/15/11. Don't they usually release around then? Also if anything is releasing close to Uncharted 3, its gonna have to wait, unless i have the cash for it.
11/11/11 makes sense, just for the fact that it's 11/11/11 (sounds good). I guess it could come out on the 1st November 2011 like Uncharted 3. US games usually release on Tuesdays, but it wouldn't make a huge difference if it released on a Friday. MW3 still hasn't been confirmed though, and I'm sure Activision stated that MW3 wouldn't be coming this year.
So many good games on PS3 in 2011 including COD:MW3 . It's the only console worth for playing exclusives & multi-plats. No need for any other consoles
@ tremillz - black ops released on the 9th of november last year
11/11/11 is reserved for Skyrim only for me. :)
I'm dubious about an 11/11/11 release date for this reason. If Skyrim is coming out on the same day, MW3 is going to be put against one of the most anticipated games of the year. That's just bad marketing.
No way in hell I'm picking up Modern Rehash 3 when Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes out on November 11.
the problem is alot of people will easily pick Modern Rehash over ES5. Certainly not me.
Skyrim and Uncharted in the same month? MW3 should lose. It doesnt deserve the sales
Have a feeling it will be crap due to the staff situation, but i'll still buy it...
The age old words that keeps COD in power over better shooters :(
What??? Joshb1 isn't kidding???? Why are you agreeing people!!???
Wait, you think it will be crap but you are still buying it? WTF is wrong with you? I wont be getting it most likely, even if its awesome. Too many awesome single player games out right now and more to come. Plus if im not mistaken UC3 comes that day as well. Does anyone else find it kind of disrespectful that on remembrance day a game like COD is being released? Like couldnt they pick just one day different?
Exactly my thoughts. If they release this on remembrance day then activision really are disrespectful shits.
At the same time as Skyrim? Ouch.
Skyrim for me.
Some many number ones I CANT TAKE IT!
Don't worry. You had 1 agree. I changed it to a 2 for yew :D
Bad for skyrim
Nope . Different crowd and market for a now established franchise . That's like pretending Cod ever harmed Assassin Creed . Doesnt work that way , especially with Assassin Creed as the best selling new ip on PS3/360/PC so far .
WTF Skyrim should be the big game of 11/11/11 although now it probably won't :(
It will be for me!!!
Same but thats not enough publicity...
i'll buy anything else on 11/11/11 then ... Hey it's the same date as Skyrim ? Here we go
Black Ops was my last mistake
probably will have my full share of shooters this year on my 360 and ps3 may pass on it for Elder Scroll and other titles.
If this is the case then it'll be releasing very close to UC3 and I know which one I'd rather get...
Skyrim Mass Effect 3 Uncharted 3 (A little before, but Resistance 3) and the Possibility of a PSP2? Not to mention any 3DS titles that haven't been announced? End of year = win.
Don't forget Battlefield 3 and Gears 3 (from a general gaming perspective....sorry but COD doesn't have a spot in that lineup...maybe used and about 30-40 dollars
It's sad to say but the majority of casual gamers only have the next COD on their wishlist and thats where their money is going. I have friends that buy COD every year without fail and it's sickening actually because they're basically buying the same shit.
Knowing these money hungry pricks it will be out in 2 months.
Skyrim for me. Not that I even ever played a Modern Warfare.
Modern Warfare(COD4) was the best one by far IMO and definitely worth playing.
Activision can kiss my sweaty a$$!! I didn't buy "Crap Ops" and I'm sooo happy I didn't. I hope they do release that junk and that it sells so poorly that it finally ends that POS franchise once and for all.
Ha, I'll be too busy playing Skyrim. I'll not be buying CoD#486.
They need to bring out the next COD in 2012. That way all issues with the game are resolved. Tired of secretly beta testing the game for delvelopers.
Call of Duty is like a warm beer there’s a lot of it, it taste nasty and you don’t really want it but your friends make you drink it.
11/11 is friday. Games aren´t released on fridays.
Yes but 11/11/11 is just an awesome date.
It was a bad idea to announce mw3 when the map pack for black ops is just round the corner now it feels like im getting robbed.
Nope not likely, like Tachyon_Nova said it's not likely. All major releases come on tuesday. Unless it's Nintendo then they release stuff on Sundays.
I don't see how activision have the balls to announce another Cod game when they haven't fixed the ps3 COD BO.
