Activision has just confirmed to VG247 that reports of Modern Warfare 2 being withdrawn in Russian are incorrect.

“Reports that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been banned in Russia are erroneous,” said the publisher in a statement.

“Activision only released a PC version of the game in Russia which went on sale on Tuesday, Nov. 10.”

The original story came from GotPS3, a Russian site, which – according to Hellforge – claimed that the game’s console versions had been banned thanks to its Airport Scene.

So there you go. Untrue. Go back to not speaking Russian in a make-believe Russian airport, Russian Modern Warfare 2 PC players.
