Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Summary
During Activision's annual earnings call, Activision president and CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops III is shaping up to be a major seller, as it is enjoying the most preorders for a Call of Duty game in the past few years.
Something warfare related and modern is going on with Infinity Ward as they tweeted a teasing picture of Call of Duty notable, Captain Price. "Brace yourselves. Price is coming," read the accompanying caption.
It's unclear what exactly it is referring to with regards to Price. Is this a tease for the next Modern Warfare, or some Ghosts DLC? Sledgehammer is now the third COD studio.
Activision is making a slight change to their Call of Duty roster as the series will be moving into a third-year development cycle, instead of having just two years per release. Does that mean year's without COD?
No, no, don't be silly. Activision has named Sledgehammer Games as the third Call of Duty studio, joining Treyarch and creator Infinity Ward. More "DLC and micro DLC".
LeakAlot LinkedIn profile for a senior VFX artist at Sledgehammer Games mentions they're working on "photo real visual effects" for the "next Call of Duty - Modern Warfare release"; it's been edited since.
Infinity is busy with Call of Duty: Ghosts as they didn't want to just keep adding sequels to the Modern Warfare series. That means it's wide open for another studio to play with.
John Gibson, president of Tripwire Interactive, has some stark views on Activision's Call of Duty franchise. The Red Orchestra 2 developer feels they have "almost ruined a generation of FPS players."
During Red Orchestra 2's testing, Tripwire got a lot of feedback complaints that it 'wasn't like Call of Duty'. He acknowledges it's "smart business, to a degree," when you 'give away kills'.
