Should we expect the next Call of Duty at the Xbox 720 reveal?

GameZone's Matt Liebl writes, "It doesn't take a genius to realize Microsoft's expected next-Xbox event would be the perfect stage for Activision to announce the next installment of its popular first-person shooter franchise. Over the past few years the Xbox 360 has made itself the premiere platform for Call of Duty – mostly because of the exclusive DLC agreement between Microsoft and Activision."

Makes sense.. CoD and Minecraft keep Xbox LIVE afloat

Septic2012d ago

What an ignorant comment.

Bobby Kotex2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

The truth hurts?

AngelicIceDiamond2012d ago

I agree its a pretty stupid comment. You would have to be pretty shallow to think 2 games keep Xbox Live popular.

@Bobby any sources of that comment being true? Any facts at all? I wanna see "Cod and Mincraft keep the entire Xbox Live community afloat."

Exactly, troll along else where.

sengoku2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

it's very possible COD could have another special deal with M$,
they could be on stage at the X720 reveal, but i don't think so.

people want to see new IP's

Reverent2012d ago

I wouldn't really say ignorant.. I mean, I can see that the guy was trying to get a cheap hit at Microsoft, but even so, CoD and Minecraft, while they don't at all account for XBL's survival, they do bring in a TON of money to Microsoft.

Realistically, some sort of CoD event at the X720 reveal would make sense (even if we are suffering from serious fatigue of that milked-to-death franchise).

brbobcat2012d ago

Week in and week out, what are the most played Xbox LIVE games? CoD and Minecraft. It's not ignorant if the stats they present to us prove those are the two most popular games played on there.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

I hope they reveal a new Steel Battalion and fable for kinect 2.

They will most likely show Ryse from crytek to try and get the core gamers happy for kinect 2.

I hope kinect 2 comes with 720.

If they focus on kinect now imagine if every one owns one!

Will be interesting and funny.

Septic2012d ago

Just because they are the most played games you think the whole service is reliant on them for its survival?

Just have the decent to admit it was a fanboy comment.

Washington-Capitals2012d ago

What an ignorant comment. If there was any factual thing out there its that call of duty keeps PSN alive. There are ZERO good online shooters on the PS3 besides BF3 and thats better on PC. This is a FACT. Not to mention Call of Duty plays 100x better on the xbox (not that this is sony's/ps3s fault).

XBL > PSN for online games. That is a FACT even if its not Sony's fault that XBL is better, the games ALL play better on the 360.

COD keeps PSN afloat as well......

Anyway I wouldn't be surprised to see COD marketed as an Xbox 720 exclusive with timed DLC or exclusive content. I just hope Sony gets BF4 content on PS4. Most people seem to be moving on to that game this year.

IK IR Y IP T2012d ago

Ea has already stated they have made exclusive deals with microsoft this time . They didnt state a title but i will put money on it that will be the first time we see bf4 multiplayer is at a xbox event

ger23962012d ago

It'd free to play on psn, so how does it keep it afloat?

brave27heart2012d ago

I thought the EA deal was rumour nor confirmed fact. No...wait, my mistake. I forgot this was N4G and the two are the same.

I think we'll see a tech demo for cod, they're unlikely to launch the next gen version until next year I think. Bigger fan base on current gen. Id like a next gen cod this year, although I dont have much faith in the MW brand anymore.

Knight_Crawler2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

I think MS is not going to give Activison as much love next gen as they did this gen.

It was confirmed that MS and EA have entered into some sort of partnership agreemnet and I have a feeling that it has to do with Battefield.

Time will tell but I honestly dont think COD will have the same selling power next gen as they did this gen and MS knows this.

I do expect to see Bethesdas Studio, EPIC, Konami, EA and Remedy at MS E3 confrence.

MikeMyers2012d ago

I hope Microsoft does more internally. These partnerships only seem to lead to timed exclusive deals and DLC. Sure they help in the short term but Microsoft really needs to invest more into their own ip's and not just concentrate on those that are popular or Kinect titles.

UnholyLight2012d ago


They are investing in their own ip's. Just wait, you'll see. It's the only logical explanation to why there wasn't much the last 3 years. They were holding out for the next system.

MikeMyers2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

Hope so, and crossing my fingers most of them are not Kinect games.

andrewsqual2012d ago

The next COD is being revealed the first week in May so unless the Next Xbox is unveiled at that time, then no, no it isn't. The trailer will debut 3 weeks later

3-4-52012d ago

2 games would have to have over 500,000 people each just to carry live....they don't

user76939582012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

m$ is going to show COD channel, 24/7 COD related brainwashing adds, gameplay, tournaments, you name it!

well seriously EA is going big with M$ and they will show exclusive content for BF4 with kinect stuff and show the new IP Respawn(creators of cod) has been working with exclusive content and better with kinect.

I got a feeling PS3 will have exclusive COD content this time around and COD will actually become a good game at least the first 2 COD (no counting the one from this year unless they use a next gen engines for it) will and the rest will be more of the same.. unless M$ is taking all the cream for them self and also have COD time exclusive content all for them self

liquidhalos2011d ago

Is there a forum somewhere where they have competitions to see who can make the most childish flamebait comments on N4g?

call of duty hands free kinect edition

lifesanrpg2012d ago

This made me chuckle. Better with Kinect!

glennco2011d ago

It says it on the box, it must be true?

Riggans422012d ago

that... that just sounds awful...

Jaqen_Hghar2012d ago

after Steel Battalion and Fable a man wouldn't be surprised.

Reverent2012d ago

Ah, a dance off which includes all of the popular, 2-dimensional CoD characters, like Price, Soap, Ghost, etc.

How embarrassing.

FITgamer2011d ago (Edited 2011d ago )

Then you could yell "Cujo sick balls!" when you get your attack dog killstreak.

Roper3162012d ago

oh boy Call of Doo Doo Kinect style coming up.

GiggMan2012d ago

You know Microsoft is going to showcase the new Call of Duty. They do it every year. Should be interesting, I would love to see a new engine and get a glimpse of what they have planned for the next gen...
