Modern Warfare 2 Keeps Call of Duty Branding

BOOM widget 82713 Ending a lengthy period of inane speculation, Infinity Ward has confirmed that its forthcoming sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will indeed retain the popular Call of Duty branding.

"Just recieved[sic] the first Modern Warfare 2 boxes straight off the press," Infinity Ward community manager Robert "fourzerotwo" Bowling wrote on Twitter alongside the above image of the CoD-tacular box art.

Previously, the developer had only officially referred to the shooter sequel as Modern Warfare 2, with indications that the game's commercial success could be hurt if it wasn't clearly labeled as a Call of Duty title. Publisher Activision certainly has high expectations--just yesterday, it delayed Raven's shooter Singularity into 2010, explaining that the move "clears the way for Modern Warfare 2 to dominate this holiday season."

Look for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to hit PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 10. In the meantime, why not take another look at the first full-length trailer? It's just below. BOOM video 1954
