While it’s already a month since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was officially announced, we still haven’t seen a second of multiplayer of it, or actual Modern Warfare gameplay. Sure, Infinity Ward says that the reveal trailer was 100 percent in-game gameplay, but it’s still nothing like seeing honest to goodness gameplay, right?
That might be about to change soon. Over on the Modern Warfare subreddit, a poster asked why can’t Infinity Ward just say when the gameplay reveal date will be exactly.
That’s a legit question, not exactly criticizing how things are being handled. I’m just wondering why they wouldn’t just say when gameplay is going to be shown. I’m sure there’s an explanation, but I can’t really think of one. What do you guys think?
According to artpeasant, who’s Infinity Ward Studio Art Director Joel Emslie, it’s “almost there,” and that people just need to “stay on target.”
Of course, it’s unknown now whether this “almost there” pertains to the gameplay reveal date or, y’know, the actual Modern Warfare gameplay reveal. If I had to wager a guess, it’s the latter since the game is set for release this October, and we didn’t get a second of new gameplay at this year’s E3.
And of course, it’s not like Infinity Ward is keeping it under wraps, either. US athletes have already managed to get some hands-on time with the game, even if we haven’t seen a second of it.
What do you hope to see from the Modern Warfare gameplay reveal? Personally, I’m hoping we see some actual multiplayer footage that’s not staged, and from a real match played by real people.
