Modern Warfare 3 reveal next month

What? Another Call of Duty title? Why would Activision want to release another entry into a series that’s practically guaranteed to break all kinds of silly sales records and generate record prof-

Oh.

Yes, it was inevitable, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting; The Official PlayStation Magazine teases that they will feature a worldwide reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in next month’s issue. The franchise has been a phenomenal success this generation, particularly following the release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Its blend of cinematic campaigns and addictive, accessible Online multiplayer has seen the series break all kinds of entertainment sales records, but up until now, it was helped by a lack of direct competition.

This year, though, EA have said their gorgeous, graphical showcase – Battlefield 3 – has been designed to compete with Call of Duty, and from what we’ve seen, it’s certainly looking like a worthy competitor to the successful shooter. All fighting talk aside though, Modern Warfare 3 is all but set to outsell loo roll, sliced bread and the Bible.

No information is available concerning platforms, but the Wii and 3DS are likely to receive their own, outsourced, iterations.
