Activision has confirmed it intends to release a sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare before the end of 2009.

The news came during the publisher’s Q4 2008 earnings call and it was revealed the game would likely be released in the “back half of the year.”

“We will also release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 from Infinity Ward,” said president and CEO Mike Griffith.

“The Call of Duty franchise is in its seventh year and it has never been stronger. Our recent performance was driven by Call of Duty: World at War, which was a huge success for us this year, ranking as the number two selling franchise in the holiday quarter and the strength of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare catalog sales, which was the number one first-person action game of all time with light to date of more than 12 million units. 2009 going to be a very exciting year for the franchise as we expect this year’s launch is likely going to be the most anticipated title of all of 2009.”
