Activision Blizzard Quarter Financial Results – MW3?
With no new information from Activision on MW3 the numbers below are staggering, you can see why it would be foolish not to go ahead and make another “good” Call Of Duty/ MW.
In saying that Sledgehammergames have a lot to live up to.
If you check out their website it looks as if they have added to small pictures to the bottom that say join our squad, the picture on the left has a frozen over city what looks to be the Golden gate bridge in the background? Maybe more spec-ops on the GoldenGate Bridge? It looks as if your on a boat too.
The picture on the right seem’s to be of the same setting only after a nuclear fallout effect on it?
Maybe we are just looking to much into it and they have nothing to do with MW3 leave comment’s if you believe otherwise.
