During Activision’s Q4 earnings call today, the firm announced that it will indeed be releasing a new Call of Duty game this year. This doesn’t come as a surprise, since the series has been getting annual instalments since 2007, but this is the first time Activision has officially confirmed the existence of a CoD annual release prior to its reveal.
They did not reveal what the game would be, but rumours have been circulating around that it’s going to be a direct sequel to 2010’s Black Ops. We do know that Treyarch will be making the game, though that’s not been officially announced either.
Developers of Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward, are at work on a next-gen Call of Duty title, and Sledgehammer is also currently developing a new CoD game. It doesn’t look like the series is going to take a break anytime soon.
Stay tuned, more info will be coming soon.
