New shooter to release amongst "volatility" of "ongoing console transition"
Coming as a surprise to no one, Activision has confirmed plans to release a new Call of Duty game in Q4 2013.
"The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect a new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher," said CFO Dennis Durkin during a financials conference call today.
"There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal uses in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the main line release in Q4 to be down versus 2012," it added.
Historical trends indicate this year's title is likely to be a new entry in the 'Modern Warfare' line, developed by Infinity Ward. Expect an early November release.
Let's hope a Wii U version comes out and I think it's MW4
If it's made by IW or Sledgehammer I don't want it. MW3 was horrible.....
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MW3! It's my favorite thus far
oh hell no mw3 was plain garbage infested with hackers and glitches
the connection was never laggy, maps weren't all CQC, wiimote controls were great. I can put up with the occasional hacker for that.
Modern warfare 3 may have little difference than MW2. But not that bad . Sledgehammer was roped in bcoz of a dispute...
The bar isnt set very high to begin with.
All the CoDs have some sort of problem which prevents them from having a high bar.
Black Ops 2 has bad connections and super CQB maps
Black ops has Ghost pro, second chance pro.
MW3 had horribly balanced perks, deathstreaks
MW2 was noobtube heaven and quickscopers galore.
I enjoy both MW and BO games although Black Ops #1 was the best Call of duty in my opinion, even though my K/D is higher here on BO2, it was more balanced and fair. I could play bo #1 on wii with classiccontroller pro and get average 2.5 kd and 1.7 with wii mote. BO2 i cant get .5 kd with wii mote.
Meh. I'm not interested in Infinity Ward's CoD games. I'll just wait for Treyarch's next one.
I'm a Nintendo fan, I suppose, and Treyarch is the company that made CoD for Nintendo systems. If IW had their way, Nintendo wouldn't be getting any CoD. So, they don't support what I support and I don't support them. ...Something like that. Plus, Treyarch's CoD games have ZOMBIES!
Wait...why doesn't IW support Nintendo? Why wouldn't IW let Nintendo get COD? On the old wii,I forgive them and 3A as the tech wasn't there. I'm excited to see what they do with the U.
