"I'm not too worried about it because the conflict that's raging in Modern Warfare 3 is very different from any real life scenario because this is a war, this is a full-on Russian military invasion of the entire US that started in Modern Warfare 2," Bowling said in an interview when asked about similarities to the NY terror attacks.
"They have already disabled Washington DC and the war has just organically been progressing off the East Coast and New York is a major city that would... So this is very different because it's full-on military fighting through the streets, so I think that's going to be very clear once people play it and get hands-on and see what type of conflict this is, and then it spreads to the other major cities."
Co-developer Sledgehammer Games recently revealed two pieces of concept art, both of which depict scenes in and around New York, that show the city war-torn.
The Modern Warfare (MW3) franchise has a history of controversy - MW2 caused uproar with the airport mission 'No Russian'.
