Report – Retail poster shows November 8 for MW3 launch

Monday, 16th May 2011 08:38 GMT By Johnny Cullen

IGN‘s posted what it claims is a poster from “retail sources” for Modern Warfare 3, which now shows the previously-reported date of November 8.

The poster, which shows what is thought to be the boxart for the game as well as its now-confirmed logo, mentions the 8-11-11 date near the bottom of the poster.

The November 8 date was first reported by EG last week, but came before a massive leak of information from Kotaku on Friday. Infinity Ward comms boss Rob Bowling has since confirmed it’s working on MW3, and released a series of four teasers at the weekend.

Its thought the full blowout will come before E3 in two-and-a-half weeks.

    The game’s facebook page already DID say 8th november actually (before it was edited mind).

    It also mentioned IW and sledgehammer were developing, strangely tho that information was taken down. I wonder why =/

    @4: Why should it be delayed? It’s obvious how this going to turn out:

    Battlefield 3 ships in early setpember, MW3 ships on November 8th.

    @6 Almost every good game has been delayed in these years, especially when they confirm a date so sudden. you should know that, its a fact.

    @12 – there is no chance in hell that MW3 will be delayed. Kotick would sooner ship it completely broken than miss that date. CoD is a science now everyone basically guessed the date it would release because CoD ALWAYS ships the 2nd tuesday of november.

    They will never miss that date.
