With Black Ops out, Activision is already thinking about next year’s brand new addition to the most anticipated series. Rumors hint that it is in space!
Infinity Ward Remastered
It was reported on November 19 that Infinity Ward has been totally reconstructed by Vivendi (Activision’s mother company). Vivendi claims that they are extremely happy with what they have done with Infinity Ward, though they never actually said what they did in the reconstruction. One can only assume that the Infinity Ward team members who govern online play have been confronted for a lack of listening to the community. This could mean that if Infinity Ward does create the next Call of Duty game, it could be much better than Black Ops is right now. We just do not know yet.
Who is going to Make it?
Seeing that Activision knows that if they create another title, it will bring in a great deal of revenue for them; they have three companies to choose from to make the next game. There is Treyarch, who has proven themselves in making a great game. They also could choose from Infinity Ward, who they say has been completely reconstructed and they believe will do greatly if chosen to make another title. And then they could choose from their unknown company, Sledgehammer. To the best of my knowledge, they have not created any game that has brought any huge amount of revenue, but it is believed that they could be the company making the next Call of Duty.
Nothing like the smell Space Marines in the Morning
Activision has confirmed that, as of right now, they plan to launch a new Call of Duty game in the later part of 2011. As I have said, it is not confirmed which company will make the new game, but there are rumors coming around from Activision that the new title will be about Space Marines. I think this could be the death of Call of Duty, seeing as that it would just be an Activision making of Halo. In my opinion, it is extremely unwise of Activision to take the Call of Duty series to space, it started in World War II. I think they should either kill the series while they are ahead, or make an Black Ops 2 in some way. What do you think?
