Surprisingly, despite rumors of Call of Duty 6 being set in the future, we return to familiar faces in a sequel of possibly the game in the franchise. Yes, that's right, Call of Duty 6, but known as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, is due out next Fall.

"That's right kiddos, Activision's hugely successful Call of Duty franchise is spawning another sequel limb with today's semi-official announcement that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is in development and set for release Fall 2009.

The announcement comes from a Microsoft sponsored Massive Inc. upfront where publishers showcase and talk about upcoming products to lineup advertisers prior to release. Activision didn't have any specifics to announce regarding the title, other than the fact that we'll be receiving a second helping of Modern Warfare late next year."


The final question other than your opinion, is with the major interest in this release date. My belief is that this is the Call of Duty series' counter attack to the Halo 3: ODST, formally known as Halo 3: Recon. If so, which is most likely, next Fall might bring the biggest battle of videogames yet to be seen. And who knows, maybe Assassin's Creed 2 and a new Battlefield game will be released in the heat of the fight.
