HANS ZIMMER to provide the score for the long-awaited game CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2
2 years after the first opus, Modern Warfare 2 will introduce an original score by Hans ZIMMER.
Call of Duty is an award winning first-person shooter video game series franchise. The series began on the PC, and later expanded to consoles and handhelds, and several spin-off games have also been released alongside the main series. The majority of the games in the series have been set in World War II, with the exception of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, which are set in modern times.
Modern Warfare 2 (packaged as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2) is under development by Infinity Ward and will be published by Activision. Activision Blizzard officially announced Modern Warfare 2 on February 11, 2009 and a release date was later set for November 10, 2009. The game is set for a worldwide release on November 10, 2009, for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 consoles. A Nintendo DS iteration of the game, titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized, and a Wii port of Call of Duty 4 titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released alongside the game. Modern Warfare 2 is the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4 and continues the same storyline, taking place several years after the first game but featuring several returning characters.
