New Call of Duty Confirmed for 2013
During Activision’s post-earning financial call, CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed that a new entry into the franchise will hit in 2013. There was mention that the new entry will not be as successful as the record breaking Call of Duty: Black Ops II .
“The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect the new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher,” Hirshberg said.
“There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal years in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012,” Activision CFO Dennis Durkin added.
If the rumors hold true, it looks as if this game could be the inevitable Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. The title and developer have yet to be confirmed, a scheduled release has been noted between October and December. How do you feel about another Call of Duty game? Let us know in the comments below.
