Well, can't say we saw this coming, especially this late into a Friday when most folks are already off work and stuck in traffic somewhere. What are we talking about? Activision has released the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 teaser, and like any good teaser does, it teases.
You won't see any gameplay or cinematic clips here, but we do see a rendering of New York. Really, how is New York still standing with all the crap it goes through in movies, books, comics, and video games? Magic, that's how.
Since Activision and Infinity Ward had that nasty spat, Modern Warfare 3 development has fallen upon Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, with the former in charge of single-player and the latter handling multiplayer. At this time, there is no confirmation regarding Infinity Ward's involvement in the new Modern Warfare.
Update: All teasers are up for your enjoyment now. Including the one depicting New York under siege, there are four videos total, each featuring a different location. The other three all show key locations across Western Europe and feature a different line in Russian, which we now have (rough) translations for thanks to some multilingual Call of Duty fans.
New York City, United States - "One, will destroy the enemy's hope of victory."
London, England - "Two, use everything to your advantage."
Paris, France - "Three, take advantage of your enemies weaknesses."
Berlin, Germany - "Four, attack from the blind side."
