Twitter seems to now be the fashionable place for leaks and hints from game developers, after recently showing you the first (blurry) picture of the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, we now have more info on that title straight from Infinity Ward’s twitter page.

Apparently these details were posted by a rogue play-tester for the game, who has since been banned and deleted from IW’s twitter service. Whether this action was taken because they were spreading lies or truths is open to debate.

The below ‘facts’ certainly do seem plausible though:

  • Vehicles will be in MW2
