Fake Modern Warfare 2 Easter Egg Made Me lol

Clearly fake, but very funny, especially as I remember old ladies coming out and shouting at us in this very way, when I was a kid.

Activision have said that Sledgehammer are working to “extend the franchise into the action-adventure genre.” However the “action-adventure genre” is very broad when concerning video games. So I thought it would be fun to look at what the future may hold for Call of Duty.
