New Call of Duty Coming In 2012

November 9, 2011, By Christian Davis

When it comes to popular franchises that have a game released every year, it should really come as no surprise when they announce that a new title is coming. This is the case with Activision and their Call of Duty franchise.  For about seven years now, the Call of Duty titles have had an annual release and it’s been a formula that’s been working for them regardless of fan uproar. Easily the most popular modern war franchise to date, the games sell millions of copies within hours of it’s release, most notably with games such as Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and of course Modern Warfare 3.

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick stated that the company has a strong product pipeline for the upcoming year. He goes on to say that a minimum of two of the highly anticipated titles are coming from Blizzard Entertainment (one of which being Diablo III) and a new Call of Duty game coming from Activision Publishing.

“As a result, we expect to deliver another year of profitable growth. I believe our unyielding commitment to excellence and our creative talent around the globe will continue to position Activision Blizzard as the leader in interactive entertainment.”

If you look at the pattern of Call of Duty titles that have been in development, Treyarch and Infinity Ward have always traded off. Modern Warfare 3 just released courtesy of Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games. So it’s safe to assume that it’s Treyarch’s turn. I’m sure it’s not hard to guess what the title may be.
