So, the only innovation they might've made they scrapped for... more Call Of Duty?

@jereth Maybe next gen after a totally new engine is designed and a cooling off period, where cod isn't on a yearly release schedule.

Whatever happened to the rumored space based cod, too radical for bobby's narrow minded focus?

Lol the most generic big title a developer could be involved with saying something is too niche, compared to cod alot of thing are niche, even if they really aren't.

If your not koei, atlus, nis and a couple of other small developers(usually but not always) japanese studios you have no authority to be talking about what is niche or not. Damn sure not something a cod dev, has any business referring to.

but with the exception of koei, none of those devs you listed do yearly sequels.

We're still waiting on SMT:IV and Disgaea 3 was released 3 years ago and the sequel is finally arriving

Sadly, too many are interested in that regurgitated, mainstream pile of crap.

I'd take something niche, over Call of Duty any day. That's not how the investors and publishers think though is it? Shame on you Sledgehammer!

I wonder if they will stay with the shooter genre or try something else with their next game
