GAME has confirmed the Modern Warfare 3 release date as November 8, 2011.
The news backs up a leaked retail poster that previously suggested the game will launch on that date.
Other retailers including Amazon, HMV and ShopTo are also taking pre-orders for a November 8 release.
Over the weekend, developer Infinity Ward fired out the first teaser trailers for Modern Warfare 3, confirming New York, London, Berlin and Paris locations for the mega-shooter.
According to reports, competitive multiplayer will feature 20 maps - although they may not all be available at launch - while there will be two types of Spec Ops game modes: Survival and Mission.
Infinity Ward has said the rumours are only partly accurate. Come on Activision, time to send out the official press release.
