Well, they probably don't need one, anyway.
Gamers have come to expect playable demos of blockbuster titles this generation, which is why millions have been searching vainly through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace in search of a playable demo for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 . Now, we figured we'd be able to tell you that it would arrive a week or two before its intended November 10 launch date, but as it turns out, Infinity Ward simply won't provide us with one. Here's what they had to say at the studio's official Twitter page :
"No plan for a Demo before launch. The entire team is focused on polish all the way up to ship of the full game."
This sort of implies that they wouldn't be entirely happy with a demo that came out today, doesn't it? Of course, we have nothing but the highest expectations for this title but we were definitely hoping for a demo; titillating samples have really become a tradition in the past few years, haven't they? Well, it's not likely to hamper sales. And there's no saying a demo won't hit after the game's released, just in case there are a lot of people on the purchasing fence.
