Forgetting Current-Gen Would be Big Mistake for Next Call of Duty

Virtual Katz Writes: Rumors swirled the web yesterday that the next Call of Duty game had been discovered, and in fact what it would be focused around. The information was brought forth by IGN, via YouTube user Drift0r that has a concrete source within Activision that has informed him that the next Call of Duty game will be subtitled Ghosts. While the excitement builds within for the next couple of seconds, let that slowly diminish because the more important information is about to come. As a part of that unveiling he was also told that the game would be a Next-Generation only title, but also see a PC release. While Next-Gen sales are expected to be extremely hefty at launch, the decision to make the game as Next-Gen only has to be rather troublesome to a large chunk of gamers. The disappointment with the decision, if in fact true, would show that the commitment to those that choose not to make the immediate jump is voided by one of gaming’s biggest franchises. For those making the... (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Dev, Next-Gen, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Oh, the irony... People are screaming for Call of Duty to innovate and now they finally have the chance to do so with new consoles and therefore a new engine they want it to stick to the current generation. Makes sense.

Agreed, the chances of the next COD not coming is 1:100000000000000000000.

20% of gamers couldn't name 10 games outside of Call of Duty.

Let them move on to the next " hot thing" and give us our quality games back.

Remember when the best shooters were the fun ones not the most realistic looking.

its gonna be SOOOO funny if this random Youtuber with an unconfirmed source is wrong.. IGN will need to be slapped in the face for reportting a random rumor for some out-of-the-air source..... but then again, its a CoD fanboy site, so that's to be expected.. for those wondering if these so called rumors will be good for CoD, please watch this very intelligently made video..

While i agree its a great move to go next gen, i cant believe microsoft or sony wouldnt want both. Games like gta5, battlefield 4, watch dogs, diablo 3 and assassins creed, while needing to be next gen for launch hardware sales, will also help to extend the life of this gen consoles. And cod is the biggest of these.

The biggest surprise is the dropping of the once Mighty MW moniker, which at one time was gonna be the sole name. Now, i think its great because it has fallen off since west and zampella left. Better to move on.

LOL Cod.

If COD wanted to improve and innovate the gameplay, they would of done so by now. You don't need new hardware to innovate a game gameplay wise. PC is proof of this, as it has all the same exact games - no difference.

It's all up to the developers ambition in WANTING to innovate and also pressure from the publishers limit them as well.

Point is, the chance to innovate, especially the COD franchise has always been there, but they don't do it, because in order to innovate that would cost extra $$ and whats the point in doing that when consumers keep buying 10m+ of the same game every year?

Saves them $$$.

On PS4/720, expect the same old COD gameplay but the only difference is better graphics - THATS IT!

And sadly theres going to be people on the PS34/720 who are going to still buy this. Oh well I guess some good news out of this is it sells PS4 & 720 consoles.

The next call of duty would be a mistake for the next call of duty.

I'm sorry was the joke already made? I thought hating on cod was what all the cool kids were doing.

There reasons for not upgrading the engine on current gen was they didnt want to sacrifice the 60 frames per second...so it makes sense that its a next gen launch...what more can they do on current gen they have already released 8 call of duties in the last 8 years!

I dont think so, I think it would be good for the industry in general seeing how many people buy Call of Duty.
