Modern Warfare 2 Boxart, Is It Real?

Infinity Ward’s Community Manager, Robert Bowling, recently twittered what is believed to be the final boxart for Modern Warfare 2. (pictured below)

"Just recieved the first Modern Warfare 2 boxes straight off the press. "Shit just got real," he wrote.

What’s worth noting here is that "Call of Duty" is now back on the box. The title was previously removed and the game was to simply be called Modern Warfare 2.

This move should come as no surprise to fans. A survey conducted last month suggested Activision could be losing a large chunk of the game’s brand awareness by dropping the "Call of Duty" title from the series.


We here at the office are a little skeptical about how final this design is, though, considering the game is still far away from its November release date.

We reached out to Activision to confirm whether or not this is indeed the final packaging. We’ll update you when we know.

Update: This statement from Activision is being passed around on multiple websites, however, IGN has yet to receive an independent confirmation.

    "Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 is the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. We have focused our attention on Modern Warfare in order to most effectively communicate the fact that this is the first true sequel in the Call of Duty series. Infinity Ward, the original creators of the Call of Duty franchise, has said from the beginning Modern Warfare 2 resides in the Call of Duty universe. This is reflected in the title’s package."
