Breaking News: More COD Games!

Call of Duty 8 Rendering

In a surprising move that’s sure to upset shareholders, it appears Activision will be throwing more money in the development sinkhole that is the consistently unprofitable Call of Duty series. No, actually, that’s a bit of hyperbolic excess. It is true that the Call of Duty franchise will be receiving more games, but it may have started to turn a small profit as of late. A unnamed source for This is Xbox claims that the next game in the series will not use a new engine and will not be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Instead, it’s set to be a prequel of sorts, focusing on the life of Ghost, our favorite soldier-in-a-skull-mask, in the days before he joins Task Force 141.

But wait, there’s more!

In order to make sure we gamers are given a new Call of Duty game every year, Activision has delegated work on an additional sequel to their subsidiary Raven Software, makers of the beloved Hexen and Heretic series. This is, at least, according to a job posting from Raven for “an established console-based, realistic, first-person military shooter”. Because Activision has no non-COD games that fit that bill, the educated guess is that it’s yet another Call of Duty sequel. So if both rumors prove true, with Infinity Ward working on the Ghost-based modern warfare prequel, Treyarch working on another bi-annual COD game and Sledgehammer confirmed for another COD game, Raven Software is now starting work on a fourth, separate Call of Duty game. There’s something to be said for preparation and planning, and it’s usually spelled out in dollar signs.
