Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II in October

Activision announces an official launch date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, saying the military shooter sequel will arrive on October 28th. The announcement is marked by a huge publicity stunt unveiling the game's key art using a cargo ship. Here's an Artwork Reveal showing how this unfolded, and there's a Blizzard News post recapping the festivities. The failure to strand the ship in the Suez Canal is a missed opportunity, but there's always next time. Here's word:
Moments ago, the Call of Duty franchise did something only they could pull off, revealing one of the biggest-in-sheer-size entertainment advertisements of all time. Over the course of 24 hours, a team maneuvered a massive cargo ship containing a 90,000 square foot Modern Warfare II wrap prominently displaying the popular and fan-favorite Call of Duty video game character Simon “Ghost” Riley. Once the ship docked on the port of Long Beach, a giant puzzle was revealed, as the port contained another MW2 image that aligned with the cargo ship’s wrap.

As the docking took place, drone footage captured the ship’s movement while also revealing a first look at the game’s squad, called “Task Force 141,” featuring a global cast of characters. The massive piece of art also finally confirmed the release date of the highly-anticipated new entry in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare II, set for global release on October 28, 2022.
