Infinity Ward is “Going all in to Create the Next Generation of Call of Duty”

Mark Rubin of Infinity Ward then talked about why they went with Ghosts as the title:

"Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we’re not resting on our laurels." - PSLS (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Infinity Ward, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

It'll be interesting to see how they take advantage of the PS4 and 720.

They won't

So much truth.
Root  +   1016d ago

This new engine probably won't be anything special but it will trick most people into thinking it's brand new just because it has a new lick of paint. It will be the same game at it's core

This engine will be used all throughout next gen

My facebook is already filling up with my stupid COD friends saying how it's amazing, GOTY, best game ever, revolutionary already just because they said new engine, yet they havent seen anything yet <sigh>

From here on out IW and Activision will be spewing a load of PR crap about how new it is, how it's not the same when it is, blah blah you get the point, all away untill it's released

Your friends are excited for a game series they like. Same thing happens with a lot of games and people love to express their excitement. Remember all the PS3 fans going mental over Agent game without seeing it? If you're implying your friends are stupid for liking CoD then you need to re-evaluate your life. If they like CoD, but are coincidently stupid then fair enough lol.

Will this game ever end??? are we not tired of " CALL OF DUTY" yet??
no matter what engine they use it is still the same boring game.

They already confirmed a new next-gen engine so yeah, they will.

Play close attention to the words "new" and "next-gen".

Please lets stop being tech experts we critize PC fanboys all the time
About them claiming to know more about the PS4 than the people who made it, let's not start doing it ourselves. It's no secret that COD has been in need of a huge overhaul. GDC in San Fran this past march showed that Activision had a new engine that would be utilized for next gen consoles. They also said that they built it with scalability and new physics parameters. And the graphics renders looked down right impressive.

so I for one don't believe its all PR talk. It's crazy to think that with all the billion Activision has made from COD since COD4, that money wasn't spent developing a new engine. Developers have been talked to from MS and Sony since 2010 at the very earliest with plans so, lets just wait to see the engine running on MS's platform as we are certain it'll run identical on the PS4.

This is a new start for Infinity Ward, and its confirmed that Raven, Neversoft and Sledgehammer are all helping to make this happen and the cross roads of a new Console Generation.

if it looks like what I expect it to look like, this will be the first COD I purchase since MW2. After seeing KZ:SF and Battlefield 4 my expectations for COD are unfairly high.

also, I hope to god MS's show isn't filled with FPS reveals...

Rumor is that both Respawn and Dice will be at The Conference and if Battlefield 4's Next Gen Console reveal and Respawns game is shown at The Xbox reveal that would be 3 fps' revealed at an event that is suppose to show the console is not all about shooters, further more it would be stupid especially to highlight that many shooters and not one of them be developed exclusively for the platform.

I'm looking forward to the event.

It's funny how the bigger they are the more people want it to fall. They will keep making Call of Duty because it continues to sell, regardless of all the trolling over it on the forums.

What's interesting is how people are always so quick to judge something before even seeing it.
StraightPath  +   1016d ago
imagine call of duty is shown and the next gen engines blows everyone away.
majiebeast  +   1016d ago
I have a bigger chance of winning the lotery.
HammadTheBeast  +   1015d ago
I sincerely doubt that it will blow anyone away, the BF4 engine wasn't all that mind blowing, but it was stepping up from Frostbite 2.0 anyways.

Either way, even if it's a slight improvement, the sheep will follow the false shepherd.
humbleopinion  +   1015d ago
Makes sense. The last time COD engine switched generations it also blew everyone away. Going from last-gen consoles to an HD 60FPS smooth gameplay when COD2 released when the Xbox 360 launched was an amazing experience. Even coming from the PC the game managed to impress with it's art direction and well scripted scenes.

Too bad COD only saw incremental improvements since then, but it's not as if the console hardware changed in the past 7 years... Now they finally have a chance to bring it to the next leve.
Lior  +   1016d ago
I will buy it for my pc, if it actually shows that it is a new engine and new gameplay
HammadTheBeast  +   1015d ago
I'm surprised, I thought every PC gamer realized that they don't care about them, after the ridiculous setting limitations.
FantasyStar  +   1015d ago
Why would you buy it for the PC? That's like.....nooo.....
ijust2good  +   1015d ago
At least infinity ward will be more realistic about its graphical potential when they reveal there next COD...unlike DICE hahaha!. I doubt BF4 will look like there gameplay reveal on consoles and most PC's.
NobleTeam360  +   1015d ago
@ Root don't most games just add a new "lick of paint" as you put it? That's pretty much true with any sequel these days.
Dan_scruggs  +   1015d ago
They wont simply because they cant... yet. It'll probably be at least two more Call of Duty games before they go all in on the PS4 and Nextbox, There will be nowhere near the install base needed on the next gen systems for at least a couple years. The average sales for a Call of Duty game reaches somewhere in the 20 million units range. At the very least there needs to be well over that amount of next gen systems sold to make a next gen only release financially viable. Unfortunately it'll be a couple years.

The next-generation, same as the last generation.
HyperBear  +   1016d ago
Seems every developer making next-gen games are trying to re-establish their franchises or take new directions with their games, considering:
i) Killzone 4 --> Killzone: Shadow Fall
ii) inFamous 3 --> inFamous: Second Son
iii) CoD MW4 --> Call of Duty Ghosts

I'm sure more will come later on as well, but I kind of enjoy it. I like games with actual name titles to them, rather than just another sequel number.
Salooh  +   1016d ago
Let's just hope they make something good this time. I don't trust them. I'm not excited. I will judge it when i play it.
Jek_Porkins  +   1016d ago
If it's an amazing new engine, what will the angry people on the interwebs complain about?
Root  +   1016d ago
If you've actually read people who don't like COD then you know the engine was just ONE of many problems with the game. I would go through them but whats the point when they've been said many times before
Salooh  +   1016d ago
Well, It's just a new engine. What matters is what they will create with it. I want them to prove me wrong by creating skill gameplay and impress me since it's a next generation game. Only the engine changed. They are still the same people who destroyed call of duty franchise vision.

That's my opinion about the games they created so i hope i'm proven wrong..

“We are consistently thrilled with the overwhelming response received from critics and consumers alike to the Call of Duty series''

Hope so, for your sake. My level of hype lowered to zero. Next will be no support at all if they don't do what we want.Even my brothers who only play call of duty are not hyped, They play call of duty a lot less then before.

If the engine surpasses the graphics of Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, then maybe I'll have a mild interest in the next-gen CoD.

Even if it plays the same as last gen? I wish I had such low standards...

well It's hard to make a good spawn system with such small maps..

new engine thats it.

all the same story dude.

everyone enjoy been ripped off (y)
nigelp520  +   1016d ago
I hope its as revolutionary as Call of Duty 4 was. The awesome moments in the single player. The addicting multiplayer
vickers500  +   1015d ago
It wont be. West and Zampella (the guys that made cod up to mw2) are gone. I've played every CoD to date (though I sold mw3 and got BO2 for 30 bucks), desperately and foolishly hoping that I could recapture those awesome feelings that CoD4 and MW2 (before everyone figured out how to ruin the game with killstreaks and commando)gave me, and that Activision could at least make a Call of Duty on par with CoD4 or MW2, but they wont, and they can't.

I've decided to keep BO2 instead, so whenever the "new" ones come out and I get excited and hopeful that they will actually be good or possibly great, I can just play a little bit of BO2 and snap myself out of my nostalgia induced delusion.
SolidDuck  +   1016d ago
Hopefully all in includes dedicated servers, or I won't care. It can look amazing and have the best new features, but if it still has lag filled player host servers count me out. With all the money cod makes is that really to much to ask.
ginsunuva  +   1016d ago
As opposed to all-out?
Rezka  +   1016d ago
I hope when they say brand new engine I hope they don't mean something called the same engine name with a .5 after a number
shivvy24  +   1015d ago
they probz gonna use a new engine and copy/paste the same shizz
Soldierone  +   1016d ago
Can't wait for them to re texture the Quake 4 (Doom3) engine! ;) haha

edit: No that isn't the engine they use now.

CoD4 was a gem, after that the only thing I liked was ZomB!3z or GTFO

Just change the game engine that it does not look like a game from 2001...

Step 1: dedicated servers. I won't even consider it if it's still p2p.

Infinity Ward is “Going all in to Create the Next Generation of Call of Duty”

How about they don't and say they did. How about they move on to something new instead of remaking Modern Warfare over and over again?

"Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we’re not resting on our laurels."

BAHAHAHAHAHA! And yet you're making another Call of Duty. LMFAO!
MikeMyers  +   1015d ago
So you think Polyphony should move away from Gran Tursimo? You think Turn 10 should move away from Forza? You think Nintendo should move away from Mario Kart?

You don't drop an ip that is that valuable unless sales drop significantly. Sorry but software sales prove you're outnumbered.

It took them 6 years to go all in.
shivvy24  +   1015d ago
and most of the original devs left them

When they say new engine I think about how EA does Madden. We will just have to see though. Hopefully they surprise us all.
