If they got away with it all through last gen i don't see them doing anything differently this gen, ghost has reused assets like no mans business. i remember the first time i played MW4 COD DAMN that was a great game and the trailer below..... BEAUTIFUL "OUR SO CALLED LEADERS PROSTITUTED US TO THE WEST, DESTROYED OUR CULTURE ... OUR ECONOMIES... OUR HONOR"

The day they don't make a Billion day 1, is when we will see a new engine being worked on.

The next Cod has to be current gen only for it to be current gen at all.

"So if all games are aiming for 60FPS, surely that means Call of Duty doesn't really have an excuse anymore? It can’t really boast about something the majority of games should be and hopefully will be doing."

I thought exactly that when Battlefield 4 came along touting 60FPS. Then other titles started to follow suit, announcing the same, and I couldn't help but wonder how much longer CoD developers can keep milking the "silky smooth 60FPS experience" bit. With the exception of a few, many games on PS4 run at 60FPS now (BF4, Tomb Raider, Killzone, etc.), and as the author states future games (particularly shooters) are certainly aiming (forgive the pun) for that benchmark.

However, what CoD needs to do to maintain relevancy I do not know. People are starting to grow tired of the military shooter thing, sales are gradually diminishing with each new release... personally, I think now is the time to bring back the arena shooter - that means you, TimeSplitters/Unreal Tournament/Quake.

I'd even be happy just going back to WW2 in shooters. CoD2 was by far the most fun I've ever had playing multiplayer. Gimme that good ol Kar98k or Springfield... bolt-action helped reduce aim-assissted spray-and-pray bs.

World at War was my favourite Call of Duty game. I therefore support this comment with an Agree.
