While talking to Infinity Ward during a demo of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare at Activate Asia 2007, the famous developer mentioned to Gameplayer that they would not be making CoD5.
be high time to retire the COD franchise, they are running out of ideas
Ive got the cod4 beta and its fantastic, wudnt say they r running out of ideas by any means. the new rank up system for online is really cool. stats r top notch also, game looks and plays fantastic.
I defo agree Infinity Ward make the game better than Treyarch. Hope this isnt true bout them missin a year!
you reckon? They seem to be well on their way to something very cool with Modern Warfare. They could go into the future... or try different conflicts around the globe.
we aint even played 4 yet and they are thinking of 5 daam
dont infinity ward revovle developement of the COD franchise between themselves and Treyarch? Thus COD 5 is being made by Treyarch while infinity would make 6.
And if history is any indicator COD5 will be mediocre at best.
Edit: @ SlappingOysters...I was referring to COD3. Treyarch isn't I.W. when it comes to quality.
accept that COD 1 and COD 2 were both infinity ward and, incidently, split by two years
The two studios don't revole it between each other as such, but Activison does the revolving. Remembering that Activison is the Publisher, not Infinity Ward. . .
COD5 has been in production by Treyarch for some time now, and there was evidence of this on the Charley Oscar Delta site at the sam etime COD4: Modern Warfare was "announced" . It was promptly pulled down the next day . . .
I study the upcoming games for the 360 a great deal, and have an exhaustive list of over 350 + games that have been scheduled or ear-marked for the 360 over the next 12 - 18 month, and COD5 by Treyarch is one of those games.
This allows Activsion to have a period of around 12 - 18 month between titles, as each title can take upwards of 24 - 36 months to produce on the franchise. As oppossed to 3 - 5 years for a freash, new IP, such as BioShock, Gears Of War etc. both of which took well over 5 years to come to fruition.
By moving the games between development studios, it allows smaller lead times, helps two developement houses produce games, and gives each one greater time to work on a better game, rather than rush a game out in just 12 - 18 months for a quick, but timely release.
Infinity Ward began COD4 as soon as they had finished COD2, as many aspects they wanted to put in COD2 simply couldn't, as it just didn't suit the period. So Activison allowed them to create a new line for the game, which we know know as - "Modern Warfare" . . .
It's anyone guess what COD5 will be aimed at, but my "educated guess" would be a similar theme of modern warefare, which is where most FPS are heading now as the genre' opens up to modern times. I had a link to the annoouncement on COD5, but as mentioned, it was pulled as it was obviously way too early for an announcement of that level, especially considering COD4 had "just" been announced.
This is very common in gaming, especially with larger publishers that have access to a range of developers. Ubisoft do it all the time, as does Bizarre Creations ( http://www.bizarrecreations... which while working on PGR4, have also been working hard at their other new IP, The Club . . . . using a "similar" rolling kudos pointscoring system as they use in PGR for tying different 'combos" together. The same will apply with the "shooting Gallery" within The Club . . . where staying alive is the mian aim, and racking up the points is very similar to a real arcade style shooter.
thanks for the info
its nice to see some one paying attention fo once.
Thank you, someone with common sense!!!!!!!!!!
This is good because i don't want the "good" game every year because then it's going to only minor upgrades. Can't wait for COD6 in 2 years. Everybody should skip COD5.
I heard that they are planing to make 3 person game. They like a lot Gear of War and since game has sold so well (4.5 million) they want to try something in between those lines.
seeing at infinity produce the game better they would get the title 100%
instead of shooting,they'll interact with the towns people,churn butter for the locals and stuff like that
you will be a russian woman who has the call of duty to bear children. Then in 6 that child will go into the russian army and thats when you get to fight again.
..then when the child becomes a teenager,the game goes into the high school years where he has to battle against the Russian bullies learn to speak English and attempt to overcome the odds against himself with his average grades. He only fails at everything to enlist in the army later.
Please don't let Tryarch make another mediocre COD game.
I'm going to play and enjoy COD4 (once it's released) before I start thinking about COD5. I think people are getting a little ahead of themselves.
dammit!! I hate you Treyarch, I refused to play your lame COD3 game...I would rather go two years between games than have to look at a sh!t quality semi copycat of what infinity ward does best
I think Call of Duty 4 is a good idea but I think that you shouldn't just gain points. I think that you should be able to lose points too (kind of like Halo 2 but a little more forgiving). I have a problem thinking someone who kills 25 people but dies 32 times gets a higher score then someone who kills 23 people and dies 8 times. On the flip side, I think you should get many more points for killing then for dying because if you didn't, it would result in more snipers and less fast action gameplay.
COD4 looks awsome but come on
dont talk about the next one really
...stop milking the series
they should come out with a new COD at least every 2 years but ever year come on...!
Call of duty 3 was ok it was set in WW 2 thats what made it mediocre im so tired of ww2 games I swear. I want the call of duty franchise to take a step in another direction into making realistic modern warfare games.
