Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Announcement Near

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 could be taking over the life of a gamer near you very soon. A new teaser site has popped up online that some believe may be linked to the series. "" takes you to a website with a brief audio clip and a counter, with roughly five days left on it, counting down to zero. Vladimir Makarov was a major villain in the last CoD game.

If this counter is ticking down to a game announcement, it could come at the end of next week's Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco. The last Call of Duty was launched in November of 2009. It has a 94% score on Metacritic, and over twenty million copies have sold worldwide. It remains one of the finest ways to have your parentage insulted by a fourteen year old yet devised by man.

The last game in the series shocked easily shocked people worldwide with its brutal display of a massacre at an airport. Money guesses on what horrible thing Infinity Ward will show us next include: the bathroom in a freshman male dorm on March 18, a fire-fight in the world's largest orphanage, and Steve Buschemi's basement.
