Modern Warfare 3 Massive Info Leak (Spoilers)

MW3 LogoBefore you click on the link I supply, there are spoilers. It ranges from basic information like map numbers, mission locations, to story plot details. That’s your spoiler warning.

It seems Kotaku got its hands on some juicy details of the upcoming third installment to the Modern Warfare series. Details about the game range from the number of multiplayer maps to spoiler details of the storyline itself. The article over at Kotaku’s website reveals a lot about the upcoming game. Some of the non-spoiler details include information such as the game having 20 multiplayer maps, though its unclear if this is before or after DLC map packs. Other information confirms the game will take place where Modern Warfare 2 left off and will consist of multiple locations across the world. The article also includes some early views of the game and a release date: November 8, 2011. A big question to be raised from this leak is whether a leak of this magnitude is acceptable.

This information could be potentially damaging to the game and to its players. For a game franchise that has been very hush hush about its upcoming heavyweight, this plethora of information could spell disaster for the title. With serious competitors like Battlefield 3 looking to take away Modern Warfares crown, this information could hold consequences. Check out the article and tell us what you think. Do you think this information should have been shared to this magnitude? Does this leak dull that excitement or build it up?

  1. Dudebro, I can’t wait.

    I thought people liked leaks? What could possibly damage a Call of Duty game? It’s like saying a wardrobe malfunction hurts an artist… I bet it’s a conspiracy!

  2. I couldn’t agree more with Anthony. I DO think that this is a tad unfair so I shall avoid the article and let IW’s carcass tell me what THEY want, WHEN they want. You’d never know; they may make me do an about turn in my pre-conceived opinion of the game.

    Games are art. Artists have the right NOT to have their art leaked to the masses before it is complete.

  4. I honestly don’t care, I want the Call of Duty franchise to crash and burn, so go ahead, leak all of their info. Although this does further support my opinion of Kotaku to be similar to Anthony’s.

  5. But can you call every attempt at art – art ?

    Call of duty doesn’t convey any emotion, at least for me.

  6. It does convey the hard work of a lot of ordinary people trying to make a living doing what they love. and that’s what makes it suck, I agree with the above statements about the legitimacy of Kotaku.

  7. Regardless of what you think of Call of Duty, this is years of hard work stolen in a callous attempt just to be “FURST!!!111”.

    There is the biggest detail of all of this. This is developers hard work. Thats their life, their baby, and it just got thrown out way too early with pretty much EVERY detail out there. Who wants to play a game or watch a movie, read a book or play a game when you KNOW what happens. And to make it worse, its pretty much a synopsis of everything. Its bad.

  9. But is this really going to hurt their sales ? I think they are more focusing on the things you can’t really spoil by plain text- gameplay, balancing and all that other stuff they’re trying to nail down since cod4.

    The leak details massive story spoilers, including who lives and who dies.

  11. But would you play a game like that for the story ?

    My uneducated and unworthy opinion is, that only the true hardcore geeky fans that are not that much interested in multiplayer really give a damn about the story, and who lives and dies. Yet, that is the part of the market that will most likely buy the game no matter what.

    I won’t. I wouldn’t have bought it either, if the story hadn’t been leaked.

    COD games were never about the “destinations” of the story, they were about getting there by killing everything that moved and wasn’t on your side.

  12. i agree with nevertell. While this leak shouldnt have happened and really sucks for those who still love the story, i think the general public plays COD for the Multiplayer and the story just for the hell of it.

    Still doesn’t matter.

    And think back to the Whiskey Hotel from MW 2. Imagine having that ruined ahead of time: an awesome moment spoiled by a website.
