With the newly merged Activision Blizzard's desire to turn the Call of Duty, Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero franchises into "yearly franchises" it looks likely that Infinity Ward will not be developing Call of Duty 5.
boooooooo cod4 was quite nice
they'll probably sell the whole thing off to EA and we'll see crappy COD ports for the ps3 just about every year from now. The differece between COD 7 and COD 8 will be two new weapons and different loading screens.
"The differece between COD 7 and COD 8 will be two new weapons and different loading screens."
Unfortunately I feel the same exact thing will happen.
ehhh so i prolly wont buy it then because call of duty 2 and 4 are the best one and the 3rd is aight
Spot fcking on Mr PInk!! My thoughts exactly. bubble for you
who was "fcking" on him?
it will be developed by the same company of COD3. IW will start working on COD6
I think your right , a quality game takes time' they'll probrably make an amazing game after 5
its like EA games back the n they made great games like the first need for speed and medal of honor allied asault and from there they kept those franchises alive by offering a slightly new thing with the brand name and shiped it out' trash
you can expect to never get a complet game from EA cause they need to have something to dangle in front of you to keep geting them and theirs always hope they might make another great game cause of the first one
if we stop buying EA games then they'll be forced to offer somthing new and good to get us hooked again
it's going to suck then COD1,2,4 were developed by IW, COD3 was devloped by Treyarch / Pi Studios and yes it doesnt have the same level of quality as the rest, activision is making a huge mistake imo
One thing I liked about COD3
Not the single player (that was weaker then COD2 and COD4), but the multiplayer was good, especially with vehicles to drive!
Just funny on the motor or the tank, the jeep and racing around the map.
And the graphics were pretty crisp and sharp also in COD3.
So I guess I will still be playing COD3 multiplayer besides COD4 single & multiplayer
wow for the first time mart I actually agree with you...
I really didn't think CoD 3 was that bad when compared to the first 2 games...it didn't have the same level of polish as the first 2, but had some additional feature stuff that made it at least ok...
the only "bad" think about it was that it pretty much fished the WWII lake dry...I pretty much knew that I wouldn't play another WWII based game ever again if I had anything to say about it...
CoD 4 is a welcome change only in the modern theme...it really doesn't do a whole lot of anything new...it just works and plays perfectly...
CoD 5 will probably be a decent game...and then the next game that IW comes up with will be even better...
i'm disappointed hearing that they want to pump the same franchise out every year this isn't Need for Speed you know.
ugh, this new merger is gonna turn this company to the new EA. they just pump gmaes out hopeing they will sell cause of the franchise name not casue its a quality game. Infinity ward has to make the new COD hands down.
IW won't do COD 5? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo!!!
If that is the case ... I have lost some interest. I see what I total mess COD3 turned out to be. If IW is not the lead on this, I will watch and shoot before dropping any $$$ on it.
That's a damn shame, since Infinity did a FANTASTIC job on CoD4, successfully taking it from WWII to modern without a hitch.
The only reason I can think of: ActiBlizzard has them working on something bigger.
So, who will do CoD5?
news, i suggest postponing COD5 for 2009. Quality for quantity.
That's unless Treyarch had been working on COD5 for a year now.
I'll still be to busy unlocking all the weapon attachments in COD4 to care until COD6
It will be a bargain bin purchase for me. No thanks to Treyarch... COD3 just plain sucked balls
UHHH BAD decison Activision...COD3..is proof that sometimes change isn't good..!!
i didnt buy cod3 cuz it wasnt IW so i just rented it and i was right, it wasnt really anything new but i bought cod4 and thats an awesome game. looks like cod5 will be another rent for me
NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! :(
It will be just like COD3, Treyarch gets to work on this one while IW has 2 years time to work on COD6 or a new IP.
Boycott until Infinity Ward does it!
This isn't the best news, but I'm sure it won't be that bad. I'll just expect better versions every two years lol.
this just in.....
Call of Duty 5 is likely to be not as good as COD4.
HOORAY for D/L content!
So CoD is gonna pull a Star Trek? Only the even numbered installments are good?
Wasnt this confirmed uhhh I duno like a half a year ago?
And what will Infinity be doing?
Call of Duty 6, the true sequel to Call of Duty 4.
Are they going to switch between companies again? Don´t do that. I liked CoD3 a little bit, but it had some annoying moments, like when you have to go prone to fire with the LMG. Or that the cars and tanks were over used.
But I liked the ragdoll.
How about the pacific theater? Or an axis campaign? NOT the same old sh*t we've been playing for years. Its time for something new.
how about a game involving several conflicts?
ww1 ww2 korea vietnam Falklands Gulf war
some variety please.
And include levels where you are not on foot, the b17 level on cod united offensive on pc was cool.
now there is an opportunity for bungie
Bungie? Are you kidding?! That would suck.
Man the pwers that be should be paying through the a$$ to get IW to make COD-5. So much for that series.
i disagree... they should develop it lol
Treyarch is working on Bond 22 and another game at the moment, so I doubt they have the manpower and resources to juggle three games at once and be able to even pass beta testing.
At least we know this deal has started out on the right foot from the get go. /sarcasm
COD games developed by teams other than IW have sucked.
