Modern Warfare Domain Redirects to Battlefield

EA may have sneakily bought a Modern Warfare domain and re-directed it to their own Battlefield website if reports are to be believed.

‘ModernWarfare3.com’ you would have thought was owned and operated by Activision, but it seems that this morning when attempting to click on the domain it has redirected Call of Duty fans to their arch rivals website for Battlefield 3.

The URL itself was registered back in 2009 with no details being made public as to the owner, so perhaps it’s simply a Battlefield fan having a little bit of fun.

Also interestingly enough the last update for the domain was made yesterday, meaning that whoever owns it has only just put the redirect in place. Perhaps the domain has indeed changed hands, maybe even EA were the ones who purchased it as a marketing ploy.

When both games are eventually released it will be interesting to see which title comes out on top.

Despite a long absence from gaming, during which he spent many a night reminiscing about the glory days on Halo 2, Matty is now back online smashing his way through Black Ops and soon enough Gears of War 3 and Battlefield 3.
