Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the latest installment in the popular first-person shooter franchise, is scheduled to be released on November 10. The game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, with support from multiple Activision studios.
Initially, there was uncertainty around the existence of the game, and Activision even issued DMCA notices to those discussing it. However, the marketing campaign has now kicked into gear with the release of several teaser trailers. One of the recent teasers introduced the return of the game's villain, Vladimir Makarov, in a community event where influencers and streamers received mysterious packages containing cell phones and other enigmatic materials.
The hype for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been building slowly, but it has now gained momentum. Teaser trailers are being shared on social media platforms, and cryptic packages are being delivered to popular Call of Duty streamers. The official Call of Duty Twitter account has even posted a phone number that players can text to become an “activated agent” for an Unknown Caller, receiving in-game intel teasers as a reward.
In addition to the marketing campaign, a brand-new trailer was released, featuring the return of the infamous villain Vladimir Makarov. Makarov played a significant role in the original Modern Warfare trilogy, particularly in the controversial No Russian mission from Modern Warfare 2.
Activision and Sledgehammer Games have confirmed that a reveal event for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will take place within Call of Duty: Warzone on August 17. It is uncertain whether there will be a Call of Duty NEXT showcase this year, similar to the one held in 2022 for Modern Warfare 2 and the launch of Warzone 2.0.
Fans of the franchise can look forward to the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on November 10, as the beloved first-person shooter series continues to captivate players worldwide.
