Game Trivia

  • Modern Warfare 2 was pushed out the gate just 2 years after the release of the first Modern Warfare. Given the hasty development schedule, there wasn't enough time for developer Infinity Ward to properly playtest the game, leading to numerous gameplay imbalance problems including the much hated One Man Army perk + Noob Tube combo. Shortly after the game's launch, Infinity Ward lost most of its development staff, leaving nobody around to give the game a much needed balance patch.

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came out on November 10th, 2009, and the launch trailers ended with "11-10-09" blinking on in sequence like the countdown before an explosion. Presumably, this was meant to signify the "exploding" international tensions in the game's plot which results in America being invaded, or just the ramped-up action in the game.

Famous Quote

  • General Shepard: "The more things change, the more they stay the same. Boundaries shift, new players step in; but power always finds a place to rest its head. We fought and bled alongside the Russians; we should've known they’d hate us for it. History is written by the victor, and here I am, thinking we'd won. But you bring down one enemy and they find someone even worse to replace him. Locations change, the rationale, the objective. Yesterday's enemies are today’s recruits. Train them to fight alongside you and pray they don’t eventually decide to hate you for it, too."
