Mysterious Call of Duty movie trailer emerges and confuses

Want a Call of Duty movie? You’re probably not alone. But let’s rewind a bit.

Last week, a countdown appeared at To many gamers – me included – the mention of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 antagonist Vladimir Makanov seemed a surefire sign that Activision was about to announce Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. An Activision rep denied this, so we were back to guessing.

And we’re still guessing. Earlier today, as the countdown on the site ticked its final tock, the url started redirecting to the trailer you see below. Is it the Call of Duty film that will surely happen one day, a viral campaign of some sort, or is it actually just about Modern Warfare 3 (despite what Activision’s man said)?

Apparently the trailer was created by We Can Pretend, who confirmed to 1UP that they’ve been in touch with Activision, though “can’t reveal too much at this point in time,” and that the trailer was “a live action adaptation of the Modern Warfare narrative.”

In truth, the situation is clear as mud right now. As soon as we hear more, so will you, dear reader. WhateverFind Makarov‘ is, there’s a slightly fan-made feel about the trailer:
