It must be true. A Mayan calandar shows the world will end in December 2012. This is just after the tentative release date of COD 9 on 11/11/12.
There are dozens of theories about how this might happen. Some claim that 2012 is when the Earth will experience a polar shift. Others say that after 2012, the Earth will experience a period of terrible destruction followed by a new age of peace and enlightenment. A few claim that in 2012, a secret government (Canadian) will accomplish its goal of total world domination.
Based on the above info. I see no point in buying the game. I hope I get a beta key though.
