Modern Warfare 3 announcement for GDC?

Activision looks set to lift the curtains on Modern Warfare 3 at GDC next week.

The folks at That Videogame Blog claim that press have received dog tags with a link to the website findmakarov. The tags include the message “end the war” and give mention to General Shepherd, Modern Warfare 2’s Big Bad.

A countdown shows that whatever’s going down will transpire in under five days, which puts it nicely in line with GDC. It would make sense, seeing as how Modern Warfare 2 was first unveiled at GDC 2009.

Industry rumblings had previously suggest a prequel staring fan favourite Ghost. Recent reports have claimed that Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software are all working on the project.
