Activision counting down to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3?

UPDATE: An Activision spokesperson has declared the countdown site a hoax. The original story follows.

It sure looks that way after viewing the countdown clock at (which comes complete with Modern Warfare 2-inspired sights and sounds).

The URL of the site was imprinted on dogtags that were sent to several game sites today by viral marketing firm VVO Media. Besides Makarov (who was one of the terrorists from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2), the tags also include the phrase “End the War” and the name Lt. General Shepherd (another villain from MW2).

The countdown will end on Wednesday, March 2 at 7 AM (Pacific Time). That’s smack dab in the middle of the Game Developers Conference, where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 made its worldwide debut two years ago.
