Can't you guys just make a sequel to Singularity instead :)

It took them 10+ years of Activision bitch work to get a trully original unlicensed game from them, here is hoping there work on the new call of duty will take less time this time. :)

Im with Rob,

I loved Singularity. It wasn't perfect but a great and very underated game. I would love another one.

No, probably an action adventure element similar to what was already leaked a year ago.

very old news

It's been rumoured since last year, but never actually confirmed as far as I'm aware.

Though it was only a rumor, we pretty much knew this. There cant be much left at IW and COD is the big money maker.

I think people familiar with COD will be intrigued by the involvement on Raven and Sledgehammer and this might even draw back old fans who are curious as well as current and new fans.

I know I'll be picking it up in November as usual.

Same here, and I am not ashamed of it.

I'm mostly done with Cod now.

What they can do to change my mind, is bring back the magic mp feeling from MW, and update/optimize their graphic engine. If not they will only be rehashing the same old stuff, and it''s getting tired...

So 4 entire STUDIOS (IW, Treyarch, Sledgehammer, Raven) are working on one franchise? :\

Yes, but as far as I know, Treyarch are working on the next CoD (2012), while IW is doing most of the work on what is rumored to be MW3 with assistance from Raven and Sledgehammer. I'd say that after MW3, there's a chance that there will be 3 studios working full time on the CoD franchise, on 3 different games, which would allow each team 3 years to develop a new game rather than the 2 years they have right now, allowing for more improvements on the game and the technology itself.

only activition can sell u the same franchise twice in the same year with a different name..
Bluemaster77  +   1224d ago
This franchise is pathetic from a gamers perspective just rehash after rehash every single year
bumnut  +   1224d ago
Try telling that to the people who queue up at midnight for it every year.

I'm dying with anticipation to see what Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer/Raven can pull off with Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 or whatever they are calling it.

I'm even more intrigued to see what Respawn will be announcing at EA's Press Conference at E3 this year. Going to be an interesting year for shooters, already has been with Killzone 3, Bulletstorm, and Crysis 2.

Raven made these excellent if underrated games:

X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Wolfenstein, Singularity

Raven will now work on a shitty and overrated game:

Call Of Duty

...see where I'm going with this? wasted potential IMO.
