No, I would assume IW are back to full scalings and back on doing MW4 or whatever is next alone!
Sledgehammer were doing a 3rd person adventure CoD game before MW3, I'm hoping they would continue on that!

Sledgehammer said they scrapped that 3rd person game.
Coheno  +   1235d ago
Yeah I though I saw an interview where Scofield said that, but wasn't sure.
But really? You think they're making another FPS to alternate in between Treyarch's and IW's CoD's? As a 3rd full fledged CoD studio? And when will their games come out? In between, or will one studio get an extra year to work on their project?

Hopefully an extra year. It would really be very beneficial I think

If I was to take an honest crack, I would say that Sledgehammer will be working with IW again.. Will be something along the line of: IW handles the online portion and Sledgehammer handles the single player side or vice versa. Who knows, and really who cares..

Scofield is a talented game designer and director but Activision is a terrible publisher. It is like being the best mechanical engineer in the world but going to work for McDonalds..

Either way, CoD is done for me until next gen. Hopefully Respawn Entertainment can come up with the REAL CoD killer....

It's another COD. No doubt.

Imagine if.... it were a game that used a NEW engine and didn't look like something from past years..

Imagine if all the suits and Activision smoked meth and lived 500 years in the past...

What I have realized is that Activision is terrified to change what they have..

Honestly, if I owned Activision, I would not change a thing either.. This game is making them BILLIONS of dollars.. No other game in history has done these numbers in the time CoD has.. Why, as a business would you change that? Sure you tweak little things here and there, but you don't change the CORE element of the game.... Not until sales begin to dip and people start to feel or taste the staleness of the game..

While I have been an advocate of Activision creating a new engine for CoD, I have also come to conclude that it just makes ZERO sense for this gen.. I am sure they have completed or are working on something for next gen but right now, they have no reason to do anything different.

Well it's likely to be a CoD, or something Activision-published (aka, rip-off DLC infused) but if the core game is decent then they will be respected by me.

Don't be a shooter, that's the best advice I can give.

Hope it has slow-mo or hyper servers for the online!

not a high end game not at all.
8xeq aa
edge detect
af 16x
tesselation 64x
texture filtering high quality
just a few examples of what a game needs to do to be high quality

I'm an avid console-only gamer, I actually like seeing people point these things out.

Cause quite honestly our console games do look horrible (ie brand new AAA-games with horrid AA)
eaisnotactivision  +   1235d ago
its not just aa that makes console games look bad its resolution,filters,lighting,sh adows,face,sound those type of game settings on pc that makes consoles look bad.

Since Scofield is at the helm then I have complete faith. He was the lead designer/director of Dead Space after all.
Oldman100  +   1235d ago
Probably going to be another Call of Duty. What activision should do is have sledgehammer make the single player, infinity ward make the multiplayer, and treyarch make the coop. I'd think having each studio focus on one aspect would result in a much higher quality package.
