Modern Warfare 2 details leaked via Twitter… maybe

Some details have slipped out via an Infinity Ward Twitter page regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Apparently posted/twittered/tweeted (what is the right way of writing that?) by an IW play tester, the info has since been taken down and the offending twitterer banned and deleted. That could, of course, mean that the details listed after the jump are all nonsense, but we’ve run the info through the patented TVGB bull-o-meter and it smells fine to us.

There are some interesting details to be found on the list, amongst all the boring gun info. Take a look and you’ll find talk of new multiplayer modes, the addition of vehicles, a Halo-skulls style army tags system, a World at War-esque Zombie mode and online/offline co-op. Like we said, it’s interesting rather than surprising and if we were to base our expectations of Modern Warfare 2 on this info alone (a crazy idea, but one we’ll indulge for now), it looks like Infinity Ward are going for consolidation rather than revolution. Which is fine by us.
