UNITED STATES: The campaign mode of the popular game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 follows the classic characters from the Call of Duty franchise alongside returning characters from the older versions of the hit military-inspired action game.
In the final part of the game, John MacTavish, aka Soap, disarms a missile that was heading to Washington, D.C, before being attacked by Hassan Zyani in a skyscraper in Chicago. Before Zyani could throw Soap out of a window, he was shot in the head by Simon Riley, aka Ghost, who is stationed opposite the skyscraper, armed with a sniper rifle.
In the game, Laswell, a CIA operative who assisted the task force throughout the campaign, reports that General Shepard, who had turned on Task Force 141 in earlier installments of the game, is nowhere to be found. Captain Price gets an image from Laswell and immediately recognizes him as Makarov. After each member of Task Force 141 had seen the image of Makarov, the credits started rolling.
After the credits, there is a short post-credit scene that seems to be set inside a Russian commercial flight where a few men are just about to receive some food or refreshments. One of the passengers asks for a salad, after which he crafts a gun from materials hidden in his pockets and accessories on him.
An ammo clip is attached to the roof of the salad’s serving bowl. The man proceeds to open his phone to see a text from somebody with a name beginning with “M,” most likely to be Makarov.
After he tells “M” that he is ready, he gets a response saying, “No Russians.” Two other men can be seen in the background of the next scene, where the man destroys the phone by putting it into a glass of fizzy drinks, who are most likely to be the man’s accomplices.
The plane shown in the post-credit scene is probably flying over Europe, which is shown in some blurred screens in the plane, showing the flight’s path, likely towards Moscow, giving flashbacks of the notorious “No Russian” mission which took place in an airport in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The post-credit scene confirms that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is likely to be launched in the future by Activision. The post-credit scene sets up the return of Makarov and General Shepard, the antagonists of Call of Duty’s original trilogy.
