Activision Confirms Call of Duty Title for 2013 Release
Written Friday, February 08, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Activision is going to publish another Call of Duty game towards the tail end of this year. Just try and look surprised, yeah?
"The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect a new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher," blah-blahed CFO Dennis Durkin during the company’s financials conference call yesterday.
"There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal uses in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the main line release in Q4 to be down versus 2012.”
Activision’s typical release pattern for Call of Duty games is to alternate between Treyarch’s Black Ops and Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare titles, which means 2013 may see the arrival of Modern Warfare 4.
We’ll have to wait and see. No official details have yet been revealed.
