This decision was made following feedback from Modern Warfare 2 fans asking for "constant patches" and "exceptional" support, says Robert Bowling.
"That is a major focus of mine and the entire team since the feedback from Modern Warfare 2," twittered Bowling in response to a fan asking for great post-launch support. The community mouth piece also dismissed Call of Duty 4 'shut down' notions.
"No such thing is happening. We've just patched MW2 and are looking at our options for COD4. Shut down never considered," he said. Do you still play Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare online, videogamer? Modern Warfare 3 releases this November 8th.
