Catching up - Kotaku has the scoop on Modern Warfare 3!

Ok, so we're still coming up to speed since the blogger downtime overnight, but the wonderful people over at Kotaku have the scoop on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Here's what they've got to say:

Multiple sources have shared details of the game's story, art, sounds and game modes with Kotaku, noting that the game will reshape the landscape of the Call of Duty franchise, bringing an impressive number of eclectic settings, deep multiplayer gaming and a story that ties up nearly all loose ends from previous titles, including the final moments of key figures in the series' history.

The game opens moments after the cliffhanger ending of Modern Warfare 2 with the U.S. struggling to stave off a surprise Russian attack. The single-player campaign will ping-pong players around the world as they take on the multiple throwaway roles as a Russian Federal Protective Services agent, SAS Operative, tank gunner, and AC-130 gunner as well as key characters from previous installments and new recurring characters. The game will feature about 15 missions, kicking off with the invasion of Manhattan by a Russian force and wrapping up with a final encounter in Dubai.

The single-player campaign, which appears to wrap up most of the unanswered questions and character fates of the first two Modern Warfare titles, also introduces new characters who appear to be destined for future Modern Warfare games, especially two Delta Force operatives codenamed "Frost" and "Sandman"

It's worth noting that Kotaku has not actually had any hands-on time with the game as of yet, but I expect a flood of information and a trailer to come out around E3.

I hope that at the end of the day, the drama between Infinity Ward and Activision hasn't affected the quality of the game - Especially a Modern Warfare game. Regardless, this will sell like hotcakes and we all know it.
