Call of Duty 5 Revealed

MCV reports that Call of Duty 5 was unveiled in a conference call where Activision discussed its most recent round of financial reporting. The conference call is transcribed here (thanks Gamer's Hell), so here is exactly what was revealed about this project, which will be moving to another theatre of operations:
For Call of Duty, we’ll bring the intensity of the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title to yet a new military theater, to engage our significantly larger user based, which nearly doubled last year as new users came into the franchise.

We’ll launch on all four platforms we participated on in fiscal 2008 plus we will launch on the PS2 and the Wii. We’ll drive category sales of downloadable maps and enhanced Call of Duty 4 retail SKUs.

But if it's coming out on all 4 platforms, and the PS2 and Wii are included in that, the other 2 platforms are the PS3 and 360.

Are you reading what I'm reading?

We’ll launch on all four platforms we participated on in fiscal 2008

That's participated in, as in past tense. What are the four they already participated in [CoD4]? Wikipedia lists Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Mac OS X for CoD4 (although I think DS should be there too.. naaah, it's not a real platform!). But this can't be, they must be including PS2 and Wii in that four! NO. If they did, then why specifically say:

plus we will launch on the PS2 and the Wii.

PLUS. PLUS meaning in addition or newly added. They didn't say "All four including.." They said all four, plus two. That's 4 + 2 = 6 platforms. And don't get hung up on Fiscal 2008 either, companies don't all start their fiscal years on the same month.

Edit: And just to add, wikipedia for CoD5 lists:

Call of Duty 5 will be the fifth installment of the series (ninth, counting expansion packs) and was confirmed on December 2, 2007.[4] It is expected to be released by the end of Activision's fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2009,[5] and will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, as well as on PlayStation 2 and PC

So I guess the Mac isn't a real platform. Of course, they're probably not counting the Mac because it won't be out until Fiscal 2010 ;).
