Yea MW3 was the worst COD IMO so i wouldn't be surprised if people are actually seeing that each game barely has innovation except for Black Ops 2, i actually happy that they at least chose a new setting and are changing everything up sadly though that they are using the same engine.

While on one hand I don't mind a new game every year, now its just starting to get to be too crowded. With all the DLC they started tossing out recently for MW3, I feel its a little too late because I'm already ready for BO2. Now if you play other games in the genre or anything else it really is to crammed now. I wouldn't mind if they took next year off, and just let the Black Ops 2 content spread out a few more months, and give Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer/whoever an extra year to work. Especially if they try to skip a MW4 and come up with something new. And if there are new consoles next year that adds a whole new challenge.
