Activision, earlier today, officially revealed this year’s Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare 3. Validating preceding rumors suggesting a third entry for the rebooted sub-series, teasing a November 10th launch date.
Via Call of Duty’s socials, the mantra for this upcoming premium release follows, ‘The ultimate threat awaits’. Together with a short 41-second clip showing an elliptic, wave-formed image of what’s widely assumed to be the return of Modern Warfare’s original big bad, Vladimir Makarov.
Last year’s Modern Warfare II, incorporated a post-credits cinematic teasing a morbidly familiar development for the franchise. The brief scene events a Makarov’s PMC unit, assembling weapons aboard a commercial flight, before receiving the instructions, “No Russian” – a touchy call-back to Modern Warfare 2’s contentious campaign mission.
Who is Makarov?
Despite outside speculations, as with all the returning and rebooted cast, Vladimir Makarov, will be portrayed by an entirely new actor. The antagonist will see Bulgarian actor, Julian Kostov, taking on the role. Known generally for his appearance in works like Shadow and Bone.
Further intel should follow in the coming weeks leading up to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s alleged Warzone in-game reveal for August 17th, so it won’t be much longer before things start formalizing.
