Latest Info (Updated 06/06/2011 17:47PM GMT)
Recent Updates are at the top.

Call of Duty Elite BETA starts 16th July. SOURCE (http://tiny.cc/uoam2)

Lots of false #MW3 info being reported as fact. There is no Stopping Power, OMA, Commando, or Nukes. Beyond that, you’ll have to wait & see.

Does that include no Stopping Power as a Team Perk or just as a solo perk? @crecenteb There is no Stopping Power period. We also have no such thing as 'team perks'. All other #MW3 MP details remain undisclosed.

Just the original MP5, then I shall play it forever... :) @JabbaTheSmutt I've got good news for you, we ARE bringing back the original MP5 from COD4, updated visually of course for #MW3.

CoD Elite details are all over the net! Check out the trailer that I posted. That shows most of the details! If you want to read more on it then check these: HERE (http://tiny.cc/3oaqz) AND HERE (http://tiny.cc/f0bb8)

Will MW3 be banned in the UK? @Duffj30 No sir it is not, but it does appear to be a heated discussion among some outlets.

By progressive ranking does that mean you get level rank like in MP? @koedyburkel Yes sir, Spec Ops will have its own progressive ranking system allowing you to unlock weapons, gear, killstreaks #MW3 #survival

Survival mode does that mean we have to see how many rounds we can survive? @flipitj Yes sir. Endless rounds with increasingly more difficult enemies with increasingly more challenging tactics and unlockable s. #MW3

http://fzt.me/MW3survival Modern Warfare 3's new Spec Ops Survival mode w/ matchmaking, team leaderboards, progressive ranking in #MW3 co-op

I wonder what this CoD Elite 'online universe' rumor associated with #MW3 is all about? @JBrown_410 Plenty of details on that will be coming in the near future, it's a massive service being built from the ground up for #MW3

Can we expect any new weapons in MW3? @JamboPugh Yes sir. We've got a ton of new tools of warfare at your disposal plus new features such as dual-scope abilities.

Modern Warfare 3 picks up right after Modern Warfare 2. Source (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/26/modern-warfare-3-preview-two-heads-are-better-than-one/) (SPOILERS)

I know you can't be specific yet, but any chance we'll see BIG changes in the new Multiplayer? @mattshotcha Of course, there is a lot of stuff I can't wait to talk to you about, but we've got a lot to cover before we get there. #MW3

I don't know if you can tell me this, but will MW3 have dedicated servers? #MW3@GenocidalDreams I do not have an answer for that yet, I'll let you know when I do.

Will #MW3 run at 60 FPS? @zMeMpHis Absolutely, locked at 60 Frames Per Second. That is a core design principle for us and especially for #MW3.

@myothercareer Call of Duty doesn't have cut scenes, every second of that trailer was taken from playable moments in the game. #MW3

Modern Warfare 3 world premiere gameplay trailer tonight on NBA Western Conference Finals around 6pm PT (2 am UK).

Will #MW3 be pay to play? - @DaPrinze123 Absolutely not. I've always said we will never have pay to play multiplayer, and that remains true for #MW3

What I've found out so far just by reading @fourzerotwo tweets and replies is that they are testing out new game modes, they may be bringing Splitscreen Multiplayer and that there is no official beta out yet. So all of the videos you see online are all fake. They have moved beyond the MW2 engine and added a lot of cool stuff for MW3.

Latest E3 Info (Updated 12/06/2011 19:10PM GMT)
Recent Updates are at the top.

Spec Ops Survival mode video here: It may get removed.
YouTube - ‪Modern Warfare 3 Survival Mode Spec ops Gameplay LEAKED! E3 Presentation‬‏

YouTube - ‪[MW3] Modern Warfare 3: New intel from IW & Sledgehammer E3 2011‬‏

Xbox gets the jump on MW3 DLC again.

There was just a LIVE demo from fourzerotwo at E3. It looks as if he is using a MP5, and is packing a AA12. Some guns that were being used by the enemies were: P90, Ak74u and the G18.

You've got your work cut out for you here, keeping up with the deluge of information as it gets released is tough and wins awards. So good luck to you.

I will keep an eye out for this thread and more info about this game ha

Cool. Keep up on it and organize the thread a bit.. Its a bit messy and not easy on the eyes in a big paragraph.

and Robert Bowling said his twitter was official for MW3 news as well.

Should have alot more info to add to this thread this monday. =]

Hey fellas delete these posts so he can have the next couple of posts for adding to the thread.

OP: Nice idea...good luck..

Might want to do your own search and stay in the know yourself instead of waiting for others to report the new stuff and you only update your own post with their stuff...

I've been doing my own searching and have read all the posts that Kotaku.com had too offer but they are not official. I may add a section for unofficial/rumours but thanks for your input.

EDIT: Also I don't want to just be posting links to other websites and other peoples blogs otherwise there is no point in this thread.

I really want to know what RB means by "Beyond" the MW2 engine.. Have they done something new with something completely different, or have they just redone and updated IW4.0..

I would say they heavily updated it. Like Frostbite 1.5 (Battlefield: Bad Company 2) to Frostbite 2 (Battlefield 3) in less than 2 years. Nearly impossible to build a new engine from scratch and have a new game ready in 2 years. Especially with the internal corporate turmoil/scandal. Took Bethesda 5 years to build a new engine from scratch and have a new game for Skyrim.

Looks good to me. And thanks for the update on some things bowling has said.

I didn't know about the MP trailer, but I assume he is speaking of E3.

And good to know big changes could be coming.

Thanks for the feedback! Just looks a bit bare so waiting on more news to drop! Also a thing about E3 is that CoD has never revealed any Multiplayer trailers at E3 for the past following CoD's that have been released so this year could be the same! Just gotta wait a few weeks for E3! So excited for it.

Does anybody know what time frame that game takes place in? meaning is this before/same time/ or after the EMP goes off over DC ?

Here is you're answer: Modern Warfare 3 picks up right after Modern Warfare 2. DC is burning, Task Force 141 is either dead or on the run, and battles rage all along the eastern seaboard. Source (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/26/modern-warfare-3-preview-two-heads-are-better-than-one/)

ZZak, Regarding the MP trailer, I have the suspicion that he was referring to pre-ordering in canada rather than reveal the release of the trailer. It seems unlikely that they would reveal a MP trailer at this date, prior to E3 even. Also to confirm my suspicions is his tweet two posts down:

@SuperMcTaco I don't estimate, but when I know for sure I'll be sure to keep you informed on it. We still have a while to go.

Just not to give others the wrong idea, is all.

Fourzerotwo has put up a couple things i thought were good tweets to read..

He talks about the details coming in the near future of the new online service CoDElite.. and the fact that IW and Sledgehammer are CoDeveloping everything in the game.. SP, Spec Ops, and MP.

and he even mentions them planning to take full advantage of the extra GB added to xbox games in the new Dash update.

Doesn't look like Raven is involved and that is good news to me.

God damn tabloids.

Tabloids job is to be incendiary and inflammatory. But the good thing about tabloids is no one gives a fuck about them.The game won't be banned, there is no way in hell.

Especially the Daily Mail, even people that read the Daily Hate-and-Fear know they're reading a nonsense, fascist rag.
