Rumor – Modern Warfare 3 reveal in OPM next month
Official PlayStation Magazine UK is teasing a reveal for its June 8 issue, and it looks as though it could well be Modern Warfare 3.
The ad, posted on PushSquare says, “The biggest game in the world returns,” along with a rather large, and green number 3 plastered on the page.
A June reveal would be about right, because that seems to be the magic month for Call of Duty outings.
We heard rumblings yesterday that Activision was holding a CoD-related event in New York last week, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun heard that the firm was poised to announce something to do with Call of Duty’s online component.
Rumors over an online version of the shooter have been running rampant in for what seems like ages.
Speculation reached a higher pitch when, during Activision’s last call to investors, the company announced the formation of Beachhead Studios, the sole purpose of which was to create new digital content for the Call of Duty series.
The creation of this “all-new digital platform” for the CoD franchise will come complete with a suite of online services to “super charge the online experience,” while “integrating online and console together for the first time.”
The Beachhead project has been in development for over a year, and more information on the studio, along with content and services plans is expected to be announced soon.
