PS3 Modern Warfare 2 getting anti-hack patch tomorrow

Infinity Ward’s confirmed it’ll deploy a patch for the PlayStation 3 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on March 8.

The patch is specifically designed to the target numerous security issues that have been plaguing the celebrated shooter in recent months.

A PC and Xbox 360 update is also due, though the developer hasn’t said when they’ll be available as of yet.

"In addition to the security updates, this patch will also address a small geo exploit on the map Fuel, which players exploited in order to get inside a rock on the outskirts of the map," said the firm.

Infinity Ward is heavily rumored to be beavering away on a third instalment in the Modern Warfare franchise for release later this year. Apparently, it’s also signed up both Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software to facilitate development of the sure-to-sell-like-hotcakes sequel.
