During an interview with MSXbox-World, Infinity Ward’s creative strategist Robert Bowling said he’s not worried about how gamers and non-gamers will react to the Russian assault on New York city featured in Modern Warfare 3.
Bowling clarified that the conflict depicted in the game is completely different from any real life scenario.
“I’m not too worried about it because the conflict that’s raging in Modern Warfare 3 is very different from any real life scenario because this is a war, this is a full-on Russian military invasion of the entire US that started in Modern Warfare 2,” he said.
“They have already disabled Washington DC and the war has just organically been progressing off the East Coast and the New York is a major city that would… So this is very different because it’s full-on military fighting through the streets, so I think that’s going to be very clear once people play it and get hands-on and see what type of conflict this is, and then it spreads to the other major cities.”
Modern Warfare 3 releases on November 8 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
