Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 is easily the most heated rivalry this year with EA constantly taking indirect shots at Activison.  However, this next move might come as a bit of a surprise.

It’s one thing to talk smack in a interview about your competition, but it appears that someone decided to go straight for the throat this time. Call of Duty fans will be presented with an unpleasant surprise if they happen to stumble across ModernWarfare3.com trying to view their highly anticipated upcoming shooter.   Instead of viewing what you attempted to view, you will be redirected to the official website for Battlefield 3!

This isn’t the first time there has been a direct jab taken at the heart of Call of Duty.  Last year before launching their highly anticipated Battlefield: Bad Company 2, EA had launched UltimatePresitge.com that provided insider information on weapons, vehicles and map information. There’s only one problem. You actually had to have played Modern Warfare 2 to even access the site.  I must say, if it was indeed them… well played EA, well played.

  1. You claim that EA is the one behind all this, yet there is no proof what so ever.

    I am not an EA-fanboy, but it’s just wrong to claim anything without a valid resource to back it up. Bad journalisme if you ask me
