Apparently, Activision has offered up an explanation as to why it chose to - once again - attach Call of Duty to Modern Warfare 2.
"Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 is the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare," a spokesperson told Kotaku. "We have focused our attention on Modern Warfare in order to most effectively communicate the fact that this is the first true sequel in the Call of Duty series.
"Infinity Ward, the original creators of the Call of Duty franchise, has said from the beginning Modern Warfare 2 resides in the Call of Duty universe. This is reflected in the title's package."
There. End of Story. Please. For the love of God and the public's sanity.
