Early delivery doesn't mean early fun.

Call of Duty fans pre-ordering the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 won't be able to play it until Tuesday - even if their game is delivered early.

"If you bought a retail copy on PC, you can play it on 11.10.09," said Infinity Ward's Rob Bowling on his Twitter page. Bowling is of course American and therefore writes dates backwards - MW2 is officially released on 10th November.

As Big Download points out, the PC version uses Steam and therefore won't be unlocked until that date. Even more confusingly, Steam currently lists MW2's release as 12th November, although given Bowling's tweet that sounds like a blip.

Good news for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners who pre-ordered from LoveFilm though - as reported last week some of those copies have been turning up early, and can be played already.
