Modern Warfare 2 box art includes ‘Call of Duty’

The famous “Call of Duty” branding was completely absent from Modern Warfare 2’s debut trailer and all subsequent promotional materials but it seems that Activision had a change of heart. So imagine our surprise when the game’s official box art contains “Call of Duty” in the title.

It  make us wonder was this a reaction to the fact that consumers weren’t really aware of the game without the familiar branding, as made clear by a Google Trends chart tweeted by Destructoid?  When asked about the new “Call of Duty” branding on the box art, Activision replied, “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.” 

The company then added, “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.”  We as much as everyone else think this is good a move.

    Wow, it's not MW2 anymore its
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
    From now on there isn't going to be any more numbering just going to be like the ones without the numbering. People may still call Modern Warfare 2 by the name of Call of Duty 6 but that is not the official name like Cod 5 WaW

    Call of Duty
    Call of Duty: Turning Point
    Call of Duty: The Big Red One
    Call of Duty: World At War
