Exclusive New Information About Find Makarov — Not A Modern Warfare 3 Teaser?

Posted on March 03, 2011

FindMakarov

Since the countdown clock with a Modern Warfare-esque font and sounds first appeared on FindMakarov.com, more pieces of information have slowly trickled out. First, Activision released a statement that claimed the thing was a hoax. Today, various sites have been reporting that the whole thing is actually a project of a Toronto-based production house called We Can Pretend, which has a few samples of their previous work on their website. The most interesting one is a video called “Occupation.” which is well worth watching (the Doritos Tablet is funny as well).

We reached out to FindMakarov.com, and through them we’ve heard from a source who is actually one of the owners of We Can Pretend, and while they didn’t reveal exactly what is going on with the site, which was recently updated to a new red look complete with a sweeping radar and the same countdown, it is obvious that we’ll know more later this week.

Additionally, they provided us with an exclusive image from the project, which you can check out after the break. It’s clearly from a live-action video, and presents a scene that looks familiar to those of us who have played Modern Warfare 2. Is this related to a sequel? Is it a company seizing a good opportunity for self-promotion? One thing is for sure: it’s highly doubtful that this is some sort of viral surprise reveal for Battlefield 3, because I doubt any publisher would go this deep into a rival’s game backstory.

At any rate, we’ll have more information for you this week, so stay tuned.

Find Makarov countdown is not a hoax, it’s just not for Modern Warfare 3

Posted on March 03, 2011

The countdown timer that started last Friday was first assumed to be for Modern Warfare 3. Then it was destroyed by Activision, claiming it was a hoax. Now we have new information: the countdown is ticking towards the reveal of a Modern Warfare ‘inspired’ project. Read on for the details.

The new information comes courtesy of Spike TV journalist Geoff Keighley, who has done some digging and revealed that the countdown was created by We Can Pretend, a team from Toronto working on a Call of Duty inspired project. Keighley said that “production sources who worked on the self-funded project call it visually spectacular.”

The guys over at Joystiq have done some digging of their own, and have been sent a teaser image from the project, which can be seen here. It’s clearly some kind of real-life footage, indicating the that most likely end result is that ‘Find Makarov’ is a short film, possibly connected to the Modern Warfare story line.

We’ll just have to wait for complete clarification, which according to the countdown comes on March 2.
