Put down your controller and imaginary BFG and get you diaries out. The gloriously cinematic FPS Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has a release date, and there’s only a few months to go until you’ll be playing it yourselves. While nothing official has been confirmed by the multi-gabillion selling franchise’s publishers Activision, Amazon, HMV and Game have already given the game away by advertising its release date as 8 November 2011.

Modern Warfare 2 blew up existing sales records, appropriately enough, back in 2009, and we can’t see its threequel doing anything less.
