London launch for Modern Warfare 2

Leicester Square to host party

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is but a matter of weeks away now, and Activision have confirmed that they will be hosting a gigantic launch event in London to celebrate the arrival of the new FPS.

According to word from the publisher this morning, London's cinematastic Leicester Square will host the bash, with a number of unnamed celebrity appearances lined up.

The nearby HMV by the Trocadero will be opening at midnight to sell the eagerly awaited new shooter from Infinity Ward, while a VIP launch party promises big on the musical front.

Tuesday, the 10th of November it is.
