New Call of Duty 4 Poster Hints At Incoming Reveal, Four Studios Working On It

DSOGaming: "Remember the teaser website of Modern Warfare 4? Well, it appears that it was valid as a new poster has appeared (kudos to Insomnia’s Psycho_Warhead for spotting it) today, hinting at an incoming announcement/reveal on March 21st." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Update Title should read "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4", not "Call of Duty 4". The poster was most probably present at either PAX East or GDC which is why it is labeled as rumor (incoming reveal is about those events, not for just today. PAX East starts today after all)

Too many chefs in 1 kitchen is bad just look at Resident evil 6 500 people were working on that.

Well it is March 21st today and the only thing I have heard about is a fake video that was made --> . The video was even uploaded today to so I guess this poster was a fake

The picture says "The most UNEXPECTED reveal"

Yeah I totally didn't expect a CoD game this year

I am quite surprised you need 4 studios to do a yearly rehash ! thankfully I lost interest in this game after MW2 and saved a shitload of money :)
HammadTheBeast  +   1054d ago
You didn't miss much, I traded my copy of Black Ops and sold 2, both were horrible (in my opinion of course, feel free to disagree if your opinion differs).

MW and MW2 were last great CoD's.
SleazyChimp  +   1054d ago
2 teams working on this gen, 2 teams working on next gen.

me too after i no longer play cod after mw2 compensation lag on pc is too bad,sucks when game is only playable for people with poor connection. as for fps i may get KZ4 for PS4 otherwise none.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1054d ago
Yeah I'm not buying into the hype. Unless they innovate it and bring the "core" element back into the formula then sure I might be interested.

Until then, COD will always remain a cheap thrill for casuals and hipsters.

Yeah MW2 was when they peaked. But I borrowed my brothers copy of BLOPS 2 and it's actually a lot of fun. The score streak was a great idea (people aren't focused on kills when there is an objective) and I like the class system. The only problem is the maps are awful.
JasonXS12  +   1054d ago

Totally agree with you, MW and MW2 were the last good CoD games. Black Ops 1 and 2 and MW3 were all trash, to me, that's when the rehashing of the same product started occuring.

I'll hold my judgement on whether this is real or not for when GDC occurs but to me the trailer looks to have too much production value for a fan-made to me.
azshorty2003  +   1053d ago
Same. Last one I purchased was MW2. So glad I stopped and never looked back.
Jek_Porkins  +   1054d ago
Could be two teams working on current gen versions and two teams working on the next gen offerings. No way does Activision miss out on the new console launches. Which means they'll need versions for Wii U, PS4, Xbox 720, Xbox 360, PS3, PC and probably portable versions.
BrunoM  +   1054d ago
What people ain't getting is that the why of it being MW4 ..

The big break for cod was cod4 on these gen (ps3 xbox360)
So they are going with MW4 to break in to the new gen the ps4 and xbox720, 8 what ever name ..

So is a rebuild of the engine the why of so many studios and a revel no one is waiting for hummm who knows the final game of march madness or it will be the shown at the revel of the 720 that I'm not sure of

But they wanna try and enter the next gen with a bang
sinncross  +   1054d ago
As long as the PSV gets a proper entry this year, I dont really care how many studios Activision needs to use to make a single game in a yearly franchise.

I predict the next CoD to be laggy as the last one. I also predict that haters will hate and still buy it and help it sell over 20 million AGAIN. I also predict that it will outsell Battlefield 4.

@mathew9r ive heard many people say that include myself. They all end up buying CoD cause lets face it. All other games are preety much shit online aswell lol. CoD is laggy especialy BO2. Every year people come out with excuses such as "this is my last CoD", "CoD will die this year". Yet, CoD seem to break record sales every year. It sell 20million plus every year, thats many times more than what other high rated games can match.

Far Cry 3 had a lot more time put into it. Ubisoft are amazing developers.

Ubisoft > Infinity Ward/Treyarch (PUT TOGETHER)
guitarded77  +   1054d ago
A big staff has it's advantages and disadvantages. I'm more concerned with multiple studios as opposed to lots of people. The problem with multiple studios is they are in different cities, and it makes it much more difficult to get all the teams in the same mindset. Large teams at one location have their advantages too. The one thing that's tricky is finding balance on any size team.
alb1899  +   1053d ago
The un expected is not the game: is that will launch with the 720 and ps4 so what you will see is a COD for the next gen. I remember like today that COD was the first game or good game that was abalible for the 360 at launch and everybody was buying it and amaze by the game.......of curse when you have this good experience you want more, so that's one of the whys this franchise have the success of today.
ZombieKiller  +   1053d ago
i can't wait to see the clusterfuck of confusion due to their lack of innovation when they call this game Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4, when there's already a Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare.

That's it. keep shitting these games out....

First thing that I thought of when I read this.. oh well, Call of Duty has been shit since Call of Duty 4 anyways.
IAmLee  +   1053d ago
Best thing is, they'll probably add 2 new guns, 3 killstreaks and label it a brand new game.

4 Studios yet the game will be the same.
Upbeat  +   1054d ago
weird how 2 people disagree with you because you are 110% correct, people think its a whole new game when they change the look of a few guns and add some new equipment..
listenkids  +   1054d ago
No such thing as 110%

Regardless, this could be something different in terms if setting, gameplay mechanics and what not ( no one knows) They're decent games, with as many releases as Dice products with easier server access, patches whenever issues and no forced online pass, but gets shunned. Ok, internet, stay classy.
Upbeat  +   1054d ago
@listenkids, first of all you name makes you sound abit of a pevert and there is no such thing as " in terms if setting" doesnt make sense.

thing is you think its good when they patch things up, well if they tested the games properly first then they wouldnt have to create a new patch every 3/4 weeks. duh
Ravenor  +   1054d ago
It's a little bit different when you have that many people banging away at your game, Counter Strike for years and years had patches pushed out on a regular basis.

Call of Duty does not deserve the scores it has received in long while. But to downplay it as something less than a solid enjoyable shooter, with a smooth framerate is pure snobbery.
listenkids  +   1053d ago
A spelling mistake is a little different from a false quote. No game goes live bug free, you know this being the intellectual you are, no developer can foresee live events from millions of gamers playing a game online.

Try harder next time, retard.
sinjonezp  +   1054d ago
@d0nT w0rry #2

I think the formula for cod is so static; resulting in run shoot kill - run shoot die: with an occasional dive, prone, scorestreak, and camp. I like what DICE is trying to do. They are developing innovations through multiple combat facets that makes the warzone feel like a war zone. While I have played many hours of all cod games, its really time for a change. I hope with all of these studios working together, some form of true innovation transpires...HOPEFULLY..
Robochobo  +   1054d ago
Modern Warfare will have sequels for days. Best bet is that MW4 will be set between CoD4 and MW2 where Price goes missing and is found in the Gulag. Although they could just say F that and decide to make yet another villain with which you kill.

Enate  +   1053d ago
Ravenor for one you have internet connection faster then about 96% of the united states an you live in Canada so there are some big differences. I have a perfectly capable internet connection of 60mbps down and about 25mbps up an can stream any game over twitch no problem. So yea maybe you don't have that issue but a large enough of the fan base does for it to be a problem.

"The most unexpected reveal" -____-
CarlosX360  +   1054d ago
It's not typical of Activision and co. to reveal a Call of Duty title this early. It's usually either April (next month) or May. Unexpected is right.
spicelicka  +   1054d ago
Being earlier than expected isn't "unexpected", and 8 days before April when it's "expected" to be announced isn't some crazy break of pattern.
CarlosX360  +   1054d ago
This reveal trailer wasn't the actual reveal. This teaser site was the reveal before the trailer reveal. A screencap that looks eerily like a Modern Warfare title? That's reveal enough.

It's not really 8 days before April, try 3 weeks before April. So, YES, it is a break of pattern. Because like I said before, reveals are usually a April/May staple. Late April/Early May to be precise.

Please for the love of gaming stop supporting COD
Ravenor  +   1054d ago
For the most part, I don't think N4G does. But the world outside of this small little bubble does, and they don't particularly care what you think.

Call of Duty is a perfectly fine game, it looks fine considering the framerate, it plays fine and the community supports that. It's not like all those people who play CoD and only CoD are going to say "Oh, no CoD? I guess I better give Monster Hunter 3 a try!" They are going to look for something similar to CoD or just stop gaming altogether.

lol, "for the love of gaming" get off your high horse, gaming is many things to different people.
OpieWinston  +   1053d ago
lol you had me laughing at you when you said "Call of Duty is a perfectly fine game"

What Gamer-Z is trying to say is that CoD needs to have a reason for them to put a bit more time and effort into their games, that's a big problem with CoD.

BO2 didn't break sale records, so maybe they'll improve. Either way I know that my friends and I will just spit on CoD MW4 when we see it.
0neShot  +   1053d ago
For the love of gaming, if you don't like the game just ignore it, the problem with you haters is that you keep coming and finding out whats going on with the game you don't like. This makes you nothing more than a loser.

This is obviously a joke poster someone made because an annual COD game will never be "the most unexpected reveal." The most unexpected reveal would be to reveal that there will not be a COD this year.

Once again, it's not usual that Activision allows for a reveal this early. It's usually either in April, or May.
maddfoxx  +   1054d ago
Oh please, it doesn't matter what time of the year they announce it, we already know it's coming. April is a little more than 10 days away, so its not really that early.
CarlosX360  +   1054d ago
Actually, this "reveal" had a whole month before this reveal dropped. I can't believe you can't even understand that. The reveal started on the second week of march.

And, the reveal is usually late in April, so this difference is 1 or two months. That's a huge difference if you ask me.

IQUITN4G  +   1054d ago
even Activision knows the bubble will eventually burst on this and they'll rather wisely do as much to sustain it as long as possible. I really can't blame them for taking advantage of people's hunger for the franchise. People keep buying them and it's rather funny I think that Bobby continues to take the p!ss. Respect to the man

The fortunate truth however is that these things cave in on themselves which considering how much influence this commands on all games devs it seems, that surely what the industry needs. A big hole left but one that is from an audience not really heavily into gaming as such as it is into COD
