Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length

Dev Defends Modern Warfare 2 Length on IGN hears from Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling about the length of the campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which they speculate is not likely to be longer than the approximately six hour campaign in the first Modern Warfare, in spite of the game's premium pricing (thanks Ralph). Bowling tells them: "We try and focus on the experience we're trying to deliver, and we really let the story dictate how long the game is." When asked about the criticism of the length of the first Modern Warfare, Bowling says: "We never go into development saying 'We're going to make a 20 hour game because people want a 20 hour game' – we want to deliver an intense experience where you walk away and go 'wow, I want to play more'."

My worry is that this game is just going to be one partially scripted chase scene...

It could be worse, tho. The climax of the World at War game was literally a cutscene. You were a bystander to fun as Reznov kills the last Nazi while you are forced to watch passively. Yeah, you get to plant the flag on top of Reichstag afterward, but it's just weak compared to CoD4's climax...
