Fake Modern Warfare 4 beta site emerges

Bogus website claims to have 300 "100 percent functional" beta keys for new Activision Call of Duty game.


A fake Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 website has emerged (via Fusible), claiming to have 300 "100 percent functional" beta keys for the rumored upcoming entry in the long-running series.

The website is registered to a person in Rhode Island and not Activision Publishing.

The site, which appears to be run by a group called Sn4gamers, asks users to share a link to the site on their Facebook page and elsewhere to receive a beta code.

Though the website may be fake, Modern Warfare 4 is in fact rumored to be in development. Captain Price voice actor Billy Murray reportedly confirmed the game was in development last year, with an additional report claiming Modern Warfare 4 is 2013's Call of Duty installment.

Activision confirmed last month that a new Call of Duty game will release this year. Executives do not expect this game be as commercially successful as immediate predecessor Black Ops II.

The Modern Warfare story arc began in 2007 with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Sequels Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 were released in 2009 and 2011, respectively.
