Well, first lets see if they update the game engine. But I'll bet my last penny, it still won't win any GOTY awards, or infact be genuinely innovative.

I just can't see Activision allowing the COD teams to change the formula of their 'secret sauce', especially now when it has Destiny under it's belt.

I've been a long time Cod fan but I must say that Ghosts was the worst installment BY FAR!!!!

Titanfall will be the new addictive fun shoote. CoD sucks! After Ghost I'll never touch that shit again.

COD is most likely done, people didn't enjoy Ghosts very much and COD will be competing with Titanfall, Destiny, and a Future Halo. I still enjoyed my experiences with MW, MW2, BO, and BO2.

Yea I am sure

I heard that this cod game that is being developed by SledgeHammer games is in the works for 5 years , of course it will be the best cod game if that turns out to be true , after all this was in the works from like 2009

Aliens: Colonial Marines was in development from 2007, that worked out well didn't it.

Only other game which they have had a hand in was MW3, which was also sh*t. Not gonna hold my breath.
IHassounah  +   170d ago
aliens : CM was transferring development like every year , it wasn't from the same developer that it began with , but Sledge Hammer was in the works for this title from 2009 , and I also have hope for it cause the head of the studio is from the ones who created Dead Space 1 .
Flipgeneral  +   171d ago
Its headed by the main leads who worked on the original dead space (which was in my top 5 games of last generation).. so despite how jaded ive become with CoD, this may add new life to the franchise
-Foxtrot  +   171d ago
Yup...that's right guys do whatever you can to stay relevant

I hope this franchise dies out for good this year

We all know games like CoD and BF aren't going to die out this year. Possibly lose a few fans but not die out. There are too many people that like to rage, make other people rage, camp, spawn camp, shoot, flip, nosedive, become a dolphin, and anything else imaginable under the sun that has to deal with FPS games.

Why did you say BF? Just COD. EA needs to be bought by another company though because we all know BF4 should've been delayed. But no only cod should die.

From article:
"Also of note, Activision revealed today that it is moving to a three-year, three-studio development cycle for Call of Duty titles. Previously, the franchise was developed on a two-year interval. Infinity Ward launched games during odd-numbered years, while Treyarch released titles during even-numbered years.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said this move will allow developers to have extra time to not only create new features to help push the brand forward, but also so they can spend more time polishing each games. Installments in the Call of Duty franchise will still be released on a yearly basis."

If they actually follow up on this it will be either the best or worst decision they have ever made

Not really new, they did work on MW3 and I'm pretty sure they also contributed to Ghosts as well. Both of which were terrible games.
Lilrizky  +   171d ago
Isn't this what they say every year?
Beastforlifenoob  +   171d ago
Yep and here is my order

Black Ops>Mw2>Cod WW>COD 4> Black ops 2>Mw3>>>>>&g t;ghosts
SpartanBerdi  +   171d ago
sorry, but COD 4 its still the best one. None of the other has given me the same experience and feeling.
NarooN  +   171d ago
MW2 better than CoD4? Lolno. I've never understood the amount of praise MW2 got, considering it was easily one of the most broken and poorly-balanced shooters in the history of EVER.
Dmagic  +   171d ago
black ops was the most disappointing cod ever W@w was too i hated treyarch with a passion until black ops 2 cod4>mw2>bo2>Mw3>G host>W@W>Bo1
jimjam3442  +   170d ago

And sheeps will follow them lol

I know I shouldn't start with and and shouldnt put s for sheep but this games fans are kids they wont notice ;P
fenome  +   171d ago
Seriously though, it's retarded how many sales they get every year. The developers themselves could say "This game is shit, I'm embarrassed I spent so much time on this, I'm sorry", and people would still be eating it up. I doesn't matter what happens, it's gonna sell MILLIONS of copies. It boggles my mind..

Of course they're not gonna try to change it too much, it's a winning formula for them. All they gotta do is sit back and make money, it's ridiculous.
colinf438  +   171d ago
I actually have a bit of confidence in this new game. we will see how things unfold as info gets released, but I think that they can do things right (:

yazter  +   171d ago

Unless it's Cod4 getting remade for next gen systems any new CoD game they make will have a serious drop in quality.
ELpork  +   171d ago
3 year cycle?... could be good news, despite the large amount of hate round these parts.
jay2  +   170d ago
Nothing to be proud about...
Matt666  +   170d ago
XD that was a funny joke
Remy_S  +   170d ago
The least they could do is actually use a proper next gen engine, they certainly have enough money for it.

lol no. keep dreaming.
