NowGamer: 2013 Call of Duty studio hiring for 'next-gen' project.
I think next-gen could be when we see a few changes to the order of things. Like Call of Duty being the number one online shooter. It's the perfect time for someone else to step up and take that crown, I bet DICE can't wait to get a Battlefield game up and running on the next Xbox/PS4.
Would it matter, DICE have built a "better" product, a far superior engine with benchmark visuals and destruction. Still COD is as big as ever. If they can carry over they're "fun factor" with next-gen, theres no reason COD cant continue its success, no matter how many pixels the competition maybe pushing.
PS. I'm a BF fan, prefer it to COD, I only add that as if you dont completely bash COD, N4G will surely label me a "sheep" or "kid" or whatever the "cool" insult is for people who like playing COD, this week.
This week's insult is "silly billy." You silly billy. But in fairness, I don't care if you play COD, I quite enjoyed the wager matches in BLOPS. They were fast, arcadey fun that has been missing in these military shooters of late, it kind of felt like playing Goldeneye back in the day. So there is fun to be had in playing COD.
DICE has had to sacrifice a few things, such as the 60fps frame-rate in order to achieve the visuals/destruction. That isn't exactly a small sacrifice and I think that's why CoD has been ahead of everyone else; it is able to achieve better controls. Frame-rate isn't exactly a factor on PC, and it appears that CoD's popularity there has been declining, so perhaps consoles will follow suit if both games performed on the same level. So, in next-gen, if someone can out-do CoD in gameplay, performance, and visuals, then they'll be able to take it down. 2 out of 3 isn't enough.
Activision are too smart/greedy to allow their competitors this sort of advantage.. my guess is that MW4 will be a launch game for next gen consoles.
True. It is time for change. But you think Call of Duty won't have huge exciting changes as well? Same gameplay but with, more air support active at once, destructible environments and of course better graphics. I know what you're going to say. "Battlefield 3 already had destructible environments!" yeah but I prefer the gameplay of COD. The pace, the game modes, everything.
Let's see what Crytek has been sitting on with a next-gen launch title. IW are gonna need a bigger (better) boat (engine).
i love COD series and currently digging into MW3 & KZ3 both but i am honestly saturated with the graphics of COD games. i mean i remember that until COD 4 (or even MW2), the games' visuals were spectacular but since the competition has been upped drastically, IW does require to push their limits and give me COD in a new look, better animation, etc. really hope MW4 makes my dream true!! please IW...
Let me be the first to crush your dreams here and now. Next gen COD games will look like MW3. Sorry
Rockstar is hiring for next gen too next gen is coming quickly whether internet nerds like it or not
This is Activision guys, they're probably already planning the development of next-next-gen CoD and its respective DLC packs.
Lol next gen and call of duty in the same sentence.. new generation, same engine most likely.
bet its looks just like the last 4 cods with minor improvements
Correction, you meant minus improvements.
WiiU version ????
Definitely. Thing about Wii U that noone looks at is the potential hardware it could be packing. IBM Watson uses all 8 core Power7 chips. Power 7 supports up to 4 SMT threads per core. If Wii U has IBM Watson tech in it does it have this kinda power in it? Easily could be 5 times as powerful as X360/PS3. Price point for Wii U has already been revealed to be high end. Just gotta wait for Nintendo to either spill the beans or hide them in a new can. Yes Xbox 3 and PS4 are coming to those that disagree. Likely be on equal or greater tech than Wii U, but that doesn't mean Wii U won't be successful. Next gen visuals, half price Wii controllers, a potential online service, and other things.
Maybe it will finally look like a game from 2008?
Honestly I like mwf3 I just hope they have a new greatly improved next gen graphics engine. CoD is fun with not so great animations and a very dated graphics engine.
Another COD? Try fixing the last 4 games first.
Next-gen to Infinity Ward is adding in a big map pack, adding a few guns, and a new campaign...same graphics, same character models, even the same textures.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4
Next Gen has never looked so medicore, similar, glitchly and unbalanced.
Pick your copy up Today. (as Activision whisphers sheep)
Of course by " Next Gen " they mean, taking the MW2.5 engine, adding couple more exploding parked cars, red barrels and a window here and there. They will then use this " Next Gen Engine " for all COD games on PS4 and 720. Whooohooo I cant wait !!!
