Eat a dick, Black Ops.

Release date is supposedly 11/8/11.

Everything is semi-confirmed by Robert Bowling:

A lot of hype & a lot of leaked info on #MW3, some still accurate, some not. To avoid spoiling the experience, I'd wait for the real reveal.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is coming Nov. 8, 2011, Kotaku has learned, delivering with it mammoth battles that engulf a dozen cities around the world including New York, Paris and London.

Multiple sources have shared details of the game's story, art, sounds and game modes with Kotaku, noting that the game will reshape the landscape of the Call of Duty franchise, bringing an impressive number of eclectic settings, deep multiplayer gaming and a story that ties up nearly all loose ends from previous titles, including the final moments of key figures in the series' history.


While we haven't seen the game in action ourselves, we've gone to great lengths to nail down as much as possible the veracity of our sources. We believe that the imagery and chief details are accurate. That doesn't mean things can't change before release, but this appears to be a full run down of where Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software is on Modern Warfare 3 as they add the final polishing touches.

The game opens moments after the cliffhanger ending of Modern Warfare 2 with the U.S. struggling to stave off a surprise Russian attack. The single-player campaign will ping-pong players around the world as they take on the multiple throwaway roles as a Russian Federal Protective Services agent, SAS Operative, tank gunner, and AC-130 gunner as well as key characters from previous installments and new recurring characters. The game will feature about 15 missions, kicking off with the invasion of Manhattan by a Russian force and wrapping up with a final encounter in Dubai.
The plot, as described, seems to be keeping with developer Infinity Ward's habit of delivering complex, short sequences punctuated by lots of gunfire and scene changes. The game also has players take control of several vehicles, returning gamers to the AC-130 gunship as a gunner and plopping them down in a tank as part of a U.S. Armored Division.



The single-player campaign, which appears to wrap up most of the unanswered questions and character fates of the first two Modern Warfare titles, also introduces new characters who appear to be destined for future Modern Warfare games, especially two Delta Force operatives codenamed "Frost" and "Sandman".
Multiplayer in the game returns with a chunky list of playable maps as well as two types of Spec Ops modes: "Survival" and "Mission".
Activision, the series' publisher, still hasn't officially unveiled any details about the game, though executives have said that a new Call of Duty game was coming this year. Last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops, developed by Treyarch, sold more than 7 million copies in the first 24 hours and within six weeks reached $1 billion in sales.


We've contacted Activision for comment and will update the story when and if they provide reaction.

Story Spoilers

Lots of MP Pics

Packed with 15 levels set in locations around the world, from Manhattan to the catacombs of Paris, Modern Warfare 3's near-future campaign looks to be an experience that will top anything seen before in a Call of Duty game. Multiplayer, too, seems to be shaping up to be an experience packed with new maps, experiences and ways to game.
Sources tell Kotaku that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will have as many as 20 multiplayer maps, though it's unclear if some will be cut before release or perhaps sold later as expansion packs. The game will also include a powerful mix of mission-based and survival Special Ops modes. While the mission-based levels will be designed like the ones made popular in Modern Warfare 2, we're told, the survival maps will have players fighting until they're overcome by increasingly difficult waves of enemies. While we haven't seen the game in action ourselves, we believe that the imagery is accurate. That doesn't mean things can't change before release.

We've contacted Activision for comment and will update the story when and if they provide reaction.

Good info and find Trak... Now to wait and see. Will be interesting to see if it will outsell Black Ops in the first week or if some people will be hesitant due to the various hacking problems IW had with MW2 (not saying it was all their fault, but not everyone understands that).

Does anyone really care about story spoilers? The "story" in the campaign of MW2 absolutely sucked to begin with.

ooo...3, MvC3, MW3 and Diablo 3. There goes all my freetime. I'd still get it. MW2 was incredible, I'm wondering what the preorder bonus or hardened edition bonuses will be. Nightvision remote control flying spying UAV?

Good. As much as I felt Black Ops was more balanced over MW2, I honestly go back to MW2 here and there for the sake It's just more "fun", and besides balancing in Black Ops is thrown off by the Galili or Famas which seems to dominate everything since the last few patches.

Heres hoping another $20 pre-order Gift Card so I can buy it on release.

I just saw on their Facebook page they also posted the French teaser as well...

Here's the link for the OP Trak.

EDIT: Removed link since there is no sense having the video twice.

Updated.

In the M4 pic, you can see that the gun has "Dual Scopes." I wonder if this is a new perk or maybe just a new option with the bling perk.

Looks like they are bringing back weapons from CoD4 and MW2 with the ACR, Scar, .50 Cal sniper (yeah!), G36, 1887 shotguns. Also, I know it is hard to make up new MP maps, but I have a feeling some of the maps will be far too similar to ones we already play.

I agree about the balancing being thrown off by the Galli & Famas.

I'm happy that they're bringing back spec ops though. I really enjoyed that in MW2

Am I the only one getting a little burnt out by the COD series? I can't help but feel like I've been playing the same thing since 2007 and just wish something would spice things up a little bit. Maybe I'm in the minority here, and hell I'll probably end up buying this, but still.. a change of pace would be nice I guess

That won't happen until maybe MW 10. MW3 is going to be just as big as Black Ops.

Personally, I'd rather play battlefield, but I'm definitely picking this one up -- pending the pay-for-play details.

Indeed, I am VERY interested in knowing what those greedy suits at Activision will be looking to do with the "Premium" features. If playing online or better weapons aren't included in the premium package, I probably won't care about them having it in there. But if they are forcing you to pay to play online or playing real money to unlock weapons etc. there's NO way I would buy this.

Activision is stupid, but they're not that stupid. They're not going to Fuck up their billion dollar franchise. COD MMO will probably eventually happen, but I think it'll be separate from IW/Treyarch games.

I am very interested if that dual scope will be usable. I wonder if it will be a perk or if it would just be one attachment. In the real world that loadout would allow the user a red dot sight and then when you throw the multiplier on the back a x4 zoom. It would be great if they just made it a single attachment like the variable zoom scope.

Gamestop has already announced a pre-order bonus. It's a double sided poster with one side being the cover art and the other side the cover of Time magazine.

Cautiously optimistic since it's not the same team at IW and other groups are helping.

Understandable, but you have to remember that it isn't two unknown teams working on it with IW... Both have had rather successful games.

Sledgehammer Games is new, I.W. was gutted of its talent, and Raven makes good, not great games.
