November 10th, 2009 is still six months away, but it is never too early to start drooling over Modern Warfare 2 (AKA Call of Duty 6).
You know a video game is going to be huge when not only is there going to be a video footage premiere on May 24th on TNT during the NBA Eastern Conference finals, but when they release a teaser to the teaser. I definitely count myself amongst the most excited people on the face of the planet waiting for this game, but even I think this is going a bit far in the early hyperbole. For crying out loud, we already had the teaser for when they just announced it would only be called Modern Warfare 2!
With that being said, I’ve embedded the teaser footage below, and it strikes me to be made up of all cut-scene footage as opposed to in game play scenes. Sure, go ahead and get excited about the underwater diving and snowmobiles, but that doesn’t mean we’re actually going to get to play through those. There is one scene very reminsicent of one my favorite Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare levels, the AC-130 gunship, so I am hopeful we might see that return. Not holding my breath quite yet, though.
November 10th can’t get here soon enough…
