CALL of Duty: Modern Warfare, which involves Russian ultranationalists sparking a civil war, is happening on the world stage.
Game developer Joseph Turner said: “None of the team knew much about world events, so we based the story on the deranged ranting of a long-haired old man who hung around near the office.
“It turns out that his wild-eyed imaginings were 100% accurate, he was probably from the future.”
In response to recent events, the government has drafted in a select group of Call of Duty high-scorers as special advisers.
15-year-old console addict Tom Logan said: “William Hague came round my house with a Domino’s Meat Feast, he looks like an old baby.”
A UN spokesman said: “We must resolve the Ukraine crisis before the invasion of the Eastern seaboard of the United States, which happens in another Call of Duty so it’s definitely just a matter of time.”
