Modern Warfare Was Totally Not The Game Activision Wanted To Release. Until They Saw The Cash.

Again," reveal Infinity Ward of their block-buster title Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2. In an interview with Official Playstation Magazine - UK, Infinity Ward's head-honcho Vince Zampella has revealed how publisher Activision held them back from releasing a modern combat game for years.
<span>"With Call of Duty 2, we were dead set against it being World War 2," Zampella told OPM, "but Activision really wanted it, the compromise sort of being that we'd get some dev kits for consoles in exchange for doing a World War 2 game.

<!--[bigpic]--> "We always wanted to be on consoles and Activision saw us as more of a PC developer," he said.</span>

<span>"And something I'll add to that, Activision also did not want Modern Warfare. They thought working on a modern game was risky and [thought], 'oh my god you can't do that, it's crazy!' They were doing market research to show us we were wrong the whole time," he said.

"We had to fight for everything," chimed in CoD project lead, Jason West. "They wanted it to be World War 2. Again."</span></blockquote>

<span>We doubt Bobby Kotick put up the same kind of fuss with Modern Warfare 2. Oh no.
