Activision executives confirm new first-person installment in series will arrive in latter half of next year; no word on developer.
Didn't see that coming -_- You can expect a new Cod game every November of every year
No doubt. I hate Activi$ion :(
I won't be buying. I'll have KZ3, BFBC3, Resistance 3, Crysis 2 to keep me more than satisfied/occupied. This will probably be my last COD game for a very long time...unless of course the gameplay is exceptional.
the bigger question is whos developing this one now that IW is half dead. its gonna be some no name developer coming out with a shitty cod game
"Didn't see that coming -_-" - like really? you can't be serious! Kotick has 2 or 3 dev teams working on CoD and it's already planned for release every frickin year! I'm surprised that this is even news!
pretty soon, we'll get CoD game every 6 months. I'll rent it for SP, some co-op fun, I'll be over it in a week.
You sir, MUST learn to see obvious sarcasm when it's right in front of you. Didn't you even see the obvious smiley Nitrowolf2 made?
that's not a smile, all I can see is sad face!
badz this is a sad face :( this is a happy face :) These are boobs (.)(.) This -_-, this could mean many things but obviously here its sarcasm
just wow. i am so glad im done with this series.
funny thing is, for the past month now ive been asking my friends in a somewhat serious manner, if they were gunna buy teh new cod game next year, even tho black ops hasnt come out yet
I'm buying Black Ops because it looks great and I'll buy the next COD if it looks as great too. Milked? No more than the constantly great scoring sports game. Does it influence my purchase? At the very least I'll buy it used. If I like it, if it looks great, and if it is fun, I'll buy it. People always swear off COD but it's hard for some to not get excited when you are a fan of the gameplay
Mr "im not ever negative about anythin" your nothin but an N4G arse kisser Activision can kiss my arse and so can every-1-else, u must b an idiot if u buy a COD game every year (same as the sports games) there always re-skins of the game b4 it Whats pissed me off more is sites like IGN seem 2 think every COD game is sum how very different from the game b4 it, i bet IGN will rathe Black Ops 9.3
Oh, sorry, I didn't know that I can't buy games that I like. Are you going to police me on what console I should own too? Maybe you should tell me what to buy at the grocery store? I have a lot of fun with COD games, sorry to hear that you don't. And like I said, if it's good enough, I will buy it. Why are you getting your panties in a bunch? COD haters are such elitists.
I agree that Call of Duty releases every year are bad, but only if the content isn't much improved. From MW to WaW to MW2 the content didn't really surprise. But Black OPS is doing a lot. The new multiplayer modes are very interesting. They are adding new mechanics to the online play. I was totally skeptical at first, but I am highly impressed with the content. To say Black Ops is a re-skin is just wrong. Besides the graphics, they are doing a whole lot of work to the game. Like Alpha-Male said. If the next Call of Duty game is good, and they improve on content, I have no trouble buying it as well.
Don't bother, he's shown that he's incapable of putting a good argument forward and would rather insult anyone with a different opinion.
I'll do what I always do and buy the game when it hits the $30-40 mark. I don't buy them for online, just single player.
sheep you give gamers a bad name because, a rehashed game every year makes the game industry better by forcing developers to make their games different/unique from the previous title in the series oh wait
A game does not have to push boundaries, do anything majorly new, or remake their formula in order to be a good game, nor does it have to "push the industry" If you honestly just buy games that "push the industry" then you must not have many games. I don't remember anyone calling the last R&C a rehash, or criticizing the latest NHL game for not doing anything unique. Split screen online MP, split-screen offline MP, bots MP with full leveling support, customizable private lobbies, a MP mode, split-screen Zombies, online zombies, a theater mode where u can upload to your computer and capture images, etc-- these are all great features. Say what you want, but I haven't seen half of this in other shooters. I can openly criticize the lack of a major graphical update and the awful unbalancing of MW2. But COD gets way too much hate simply for its massive popularity/Activision
but alpha, if they game doesnt do anything new compared to the previous iterations, then why bother getting it just because its new? im not talking about black ops, i think from what ive read and heard, theyve been doing more to change from the cod formula than IW ever did, but if this next cod game is still more of the same, and not doing anything new just adding even more (unbalanced?) weapons or perks and upgrading teh graphics, i dont really think its worth teh buy
If you aren't talking about Black Ops, then why are you replying to me? Like I said, if it looks great, I'll get it. If not then I obviously wont. You buy games that you like, not the ones you think are "best" for the industry, do you? Who is REALLY the sheep? Black Ops looks great, I will buy it. If the next COD game is going to be great too, then I'll buy it also. What's so hard to understand? We know nothing of the next game but people are already making judgments about it. Just because you don't get satisfaction from playing doesn't mean I don't. I will spend my money whatever way makes me happy, I don't have to justify with people here. It's funny then that people call COD players sheep, yet act as if they know what is best for other gamers.
@ Hellsvacancy Not to be picky but IGN can't score Black Ops a 9.3 because they have changed there rating system to a point 0.5 system. ;) And Alpha-Male22 I completely agree, I love playing COD with my friends so it the next one looks good, why should I not buy it? Some people just hate for the sake of hating. Unless I can't afford it at the time or want to buy something else, I will buy every COD game if it looks good enough.
becuase im not talking about black ops, but COD as a franchise think about it this way, if you like [game1] and considered it a great game, if they release [game1] again but changed its name to [game2], seeing as how you considered [game1] a great game, wouldnt you also consider [game2] to be a great game even if it is just a title change? and if then you consider [game2] to be a great game, wouldnt you purchase it knowing full well that you are rebuying the same game? there is no way you can consider [game2] to be any less of a game now if it is an exact duplicate of a previous game you liked even if it is just a title change and this is just an example of why buying a game solely on whether it is a good game or not isnt always a good thing, and im not trying to say that the COD franchise is doing this, im just arguing the point of why you should be looking for game on more than just whether it looks good, it should also be adding new things to the mix or else your just buying the same game, and let them continue to take your money buy doing it over and over again EDIT: had to change example from "COD" to "game" cause i didnt want to make it seem biased
"think about it this way, if you like [game1] and considered it a great game, if they release [game1] again but changed its name to [game2]" Stop right here. This is a mass over-simplification. In this same regard most sequels are new titles with the old game. "here is no way you can consider [game2] to be any less of a game now if it is an exact duplicate" But it's not an exact duplicate, you completely miss the point. The core formula stays the same because it's a sequel and the gameplay is something a vast majority enjoy. Why would you expect them to change that? Your example is fully flawed and you try to oversimplify COD into being a reskin when it is not. Not as a whole franchise in the least bit. The only real COD I considered reskinned was WaW, but that still managed to have a good amount of features.
with that example, i was talking about you thinking process into buying a game not about cod as teh franchise you said if it looks great, ill buy it...well if you thought the previous game was great, then IF (not saying they are) they released the same game with a name change, your logic would make me assume you would buy it again, cause you thought it looked great (and you WOULD think it looked great, cause its a copy with a name change)
Milking the franchise.
That's very disappointing to me. As cookie cutter format as the Call of Duty series has become I would expect a new Call of Duty game every four months. Just change a few textures, the story, make a new trailer and give it a flashy title.....rinse and repeat. Although I'm looking forward to see what Treyarch can do with black Ops as they have something to prove.
No way. Really.... what a shock
Call of Madden '12
should anyone be surprised by this...and its funny how the execs talk about the game as though they have never even played a game in the CoD series "Next year's Call of Duty will be a first-person shooter." I could have have told them this, but yet im not making the millions these guys rake in every year
all the 3rd person CODs. these ppl cant be this clueless. i mean for god's sake,COD is why they still those fancy hummers and all that other BS they have.
I think they said that cus there was speculation that it would be a mmo or rpg thats been rumored. But still. Its just SO obvious. This isn't news.
Still waiting for Call of Duty Hero.
Clearly it's Modern Warfare 3. Even with all the staff departures, I doubt Activision is going to give that series up.
I agree. They always interspersed different COD games since MW came out. Although, didn't they get rid of the CoD name for MW2?
Modern Warfare 3 or something else. But whatever it is, NO one can say that there is any franchise more milked than Call of Duty.
Guitar Hero is more milked than Call of Duty.
Mario, Final Fantasy (specially 7 and its countless side stories), and sonic just to name a few... call of duty has NOTHING on the milking of those... Still waiting on Mario Accounting :) Ps.: I love Mario and the classic Sonic games... but DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!.
Err, there's actually quite a few, what about all the sport franchise games ( eg. FIFA, WWE, Madden, NBA ) that are released every year and have been doing so since before Call of Duty even existed? Call of duty is just like those games, coming out every year with minimal changes yet the sheep still flock to buy them because of hype and unrealistic expectations, quite sad to be honest.
what ?? seriously ? this was something even HHg couldn't predict ! /s
Water is wet, Mario is italian, and Bobby Kotick aka Beelzebobby (as I like to call him) is the Damien Thorn of video games. Although I wonder if the skeleton crew that is now Infinity Ward will be doing this one or if it will be that Sledgehammer project?
To be honest here, black ops is my final call of duty game.
lol that's what they all say man
I didn't say it for the last 3 games, when i say im done , i mean it.
Why don't I believe you?
Don't just blindly make that mistake. If the next Call of Duty game adds much to the gameplay and longevity why not get it?
Isnt' the developer "Sledgehammer Games" developing the new COD?
In other news, water remains wet.
NO FREAKING WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think this was confirmed long ago. Like long ago as in common freaking sense BABY! It will be MW3 but it would be nice if we get call of duty every 2 or 3 years.
Sledgehammer studios or whatever it's called now will most likely be making this.... Another COD churned out marked me surprised./sc
Enough with these articles i wanna know whats going on with the lawsuit vince and that other guy against activision havent heard anything in awhile.
CoD just became a new Holiday Or WTF is going on here o_O
Forget it. Black Ops will be the last COD I am ever going to buy!
cod sells millions every year.
WOW! Seriously!? AMAZING! I would've never guessed!!
It's true what Hellsvacancy's saying, they're all going to look great to you if you keep on buying them. I mean you'll just see one new feature and you'll go straight out and buy it making the same mistake again & again. We need to boycott this franchise altogether.
Whew! Let me breathe a sigh of relief! I can't go more than 12 months without a new CoD, after all. /s Oh wait. My new CoD around then will be Black Ops.. @ $20 on eBay.
"Next year's Call of Duty will be a first-person shooter." You gotta be fucking kidding me!
shit,i dont mind new cod but i dont want to have to give money to kotick every year
As i see my collection of PC games i realize that i had given a sh1tload of money to activision but not their cod, GH or tony hawk series but for the quake series, wolfenstein seires, doom 3, singularity, soldier of fortune seires, and many more I dont support activision and its asstard politic that the motherf***er kotick is pulling and is killing all the oportunities to build new big franchises, but the developers that do good games deserve the money and this COD could be what MW2 wanst... a good game
not me...I havent bought any..and I wont..lol.....Im a battlefield guy...I like realism.....not arcade shooter kid games.....the game isnt even out yet and they are pushing the next...GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY....but the sheeple will follow suit.
A lot people cant wait for Black Ops and mw2 has been out for about a year.. next yr ppl cant wait to buy the new COD and the yr after! They know people are gonna buy it. We're gonna get a COD game every year. Its a sad time for some gamers and game devs especially, because they cant compete with this shit.
it looks like it's gonna be fun I'm just telling the truth. i play jrpgs and action adventure as well, but i trust treyarch is gonna make this their best work so I'm getting it on Tuesday.
Ok but why just let die the COD franchise name...
i havent bought or even played a COD game since COD4 and im considering gettin Black Ops. Is it worth getting for someone who hasnt played COD in so long? Everyone says they are all the same but it has to of change some right?
