Modern Warfare 3 teaser site opens

Bare-bones countdown on findmakarov.com points to further reveal of the title at next week's Game Developers Conference.

In 2009, Activision used the Game Developers Choice Awards--the Game Developers Conference award ceremony--to premiere the trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 . The preview was a bare-bones affair, with audio clips auguring the controversial content of the now internationally infamous "No Russian" airport-massacre level.

Now, it appears history is about to repeat itself--almost. This morning, the site findmakarov.com opened with graphics and sound cues straight out of Modern Warfare 2's ad campaign (as of 12:50 p.m. PT, the site appeared to be experiencing intermittent connection problems).

The site's title also references Vladimir Makarov, the ultranationalist terrorist who was the primary villain for a large portion of the 2009 blockbuster actioner--more than hinting at a Modern Warfare 3 reveal. (The site itself is owned by a URL-registration front company used by corporations to hide their Web domains.)
