Activision: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 announcement is "speculative"

So when you have reps from Activision come out to a major upfront ad event for the in-game company Massive and announce your 2009 game line-up, including the title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and you have more than one media outlet attending and reporting on said event, wouldn't you say that's pretty official?

We would but Activision apparently does not. So just to play the "fair and balanced" card, the publisher has officially told Videogamer.com that those media reports from both Newsweek and MTV Multiplayer were "speculative as far as we're concerned". Uh-huh.

The phrasing of their official statement doesn't call the announcements false, just "speculative". We think that Activision wasn't prepared for news reporters coming into the Massive upfront event and were a little looser in revealing their future plans than they would have been had they known a bunch of media types had infiltrated. In any case, it would be a massive shock if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was not in the works, was not being developed by Infinity Ward and wasn't coming out in fall 2009.
