This year's Call of Duty is developed by Infinity Ward
It's going to be "innovative" and it's coming in Q4.
The stream of Call of Duty games seems never ending, and last night we caught sight of the next entry in the long-running series. Infinity Ward revealed on Twitter that it will indeed be in charge of this year's Call of Duty.
The full name of COD 2016 has not yet been officially announced but it could well be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 or even Call of Duty: Ghosts. Maybe they'll start anew and go in a different direction. We're just going to have to wait and see.
Here's theTweet in question: "COD 2016. Now it's official. Can't wait to show you what we've been developing! #CallofDuty."
Activision didn't add much to that statement in their latest financial report, although they did add that Infinity Ward's next game would be "innovative" and that - please contain your surprise - it will be coming out in Q4.
Looking back the publisher also confirmed some healthy numbers based on the performance of Black Ops 3, which they say was the number one console game for the calendar year (which is impressive given it launched in November). It was also the number one game in North America for the seventh year running.
Overall the series is still in a good position, with the franchise now having shifted in excess of 250 million copies, which equates to over $15 billion in total sales since 2003 (although that includes in-game content).
