So we know Modern Warfare 3 is coming on August 17th we had the full reveal which is set to place in Warzone 2. From what we know so far, it’s not a Game Pass title as at present the Activision deal has not been completed. We also know the date the game is going live. Meaning fans of the iconic shooter franchise need to set a reminder to call off work for 10th November. It has been reported the open beta is likely to launch on PlayStation first before coming to other platforms. The date for the PlayStation beta is 6th – 10th October. Other platforms are due to be on 12th-16th October proving the leaks are correct.
Though we heard rumors that this game grew from a planned expansion into a fully-fledged release. We have seen reports of the price point which is at the $70 mark. This was covered for example by Rectify Gaming and a UK news source Metro. The source was from Twitter/X account CharlieIntel.
Though according to the Metro article, fans are not happy.
So many fans are voicing concerns over paying a premium price for what is to them DLC. Now we look at what Tom Henderson said for Insider Gaming, which concerns the beta. He wrote that “it appears that BETA codes for Modern Warfare 3 use the same concept ID as Modern Warfare 2, meaning they are basically last year’s game codes, just reissued. The code also seems to suggest that Modern Warfare 2 will change to a Call of Duty Hub, which will display MW2, MW3, and Warzone in one menu”. However, the story doesn’t end there.
What Else Has Caused Unrest For Fans Over Modern Warfare 3
So, let’s look at an article by Tech4Gamers, Now bear in mind this is unconfirmed but it paints an uncomfortable scenario for fans of the franchise. I shared the very article with friends I know who play Modern Warfare still. The response was they are holding off on pre-ordering this year’s Call of Duty. Though I have a feeling they won’t be the only ones. The source is from a Twitter/X user @el_bobberto. They said that “as of now, every MWIII launch map is a remastered MW2 (2009) map”. The Modern Warfare campaigns have been good and looked incredible. But, they are not on the lengthy side. Please remember much of this has not been confirmed.
Other than that here is a quote from the official Call of Duty website and gameplay trailer for the newest entry to the COD franchise.
