New Call of Duty for 2014 confirmed

Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick confirms new entry in blockbuster FPS series coming in 2014, as well as new Skylanders game.

A new Call of Duty game will launch in 2014, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed last night during an earnings call discussing the company's recent financial results for the quarter ended September 30.

Speaking about the publisher's upcoming product pipeline, Kotick confirmed the new game, as well as a new entry in the Skylanders series.

"We also expect to launch new Call of Duty and Skylanders titles and a major new potential franchise with Bungie's Destiny," Kotick said.

No details about the new Call of Duty and Skylanders titles were provided. Call of Duty studios Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games are believed to be working on new entries in the series.

Sledgehammer's new Call of Duty game--aiming for "hyper-realism"--will reportedly feature a "fresh new AAA aural experience." Meanwhile, Treyarch created the Black Ops sub-brand.

Also during the call, Kotick said Activision continues to work with Chinese Internet giant Tencent on Call of Duty Online, a free-to-play entry in the series in development for China.

Call of Duty: Ghosts, developed by Infinity Ward, was released Tuesday on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow later this month at launch. The game generated $1 billion at retail on launch day, though this figure represents sell-in, not sell-through.

If they would actually give CoD a year to breathe, the franchise would stay fresh. They announced the new one what... a week after the launch of the latest one?

COD is like Madden now is the US. Too big to fail! I just hope BF5 and Titanfall can chip into COD as viable options for FPSes, because after this years version of COD: RED DAWN I want a COD that is MORE LIKE COD 1. Pathetic!

"A new Call of Duty game" ....SHEESH! And you already know they have a small group of consumers by the throat who will practically buy anything they market.

The only thing newsworthy about CoD now is when they make an announcement telling everyone "Nope, we're not making anymore Collar Doody, that's the last one we just released."

Way to sabotage sales of Next Gen or people on the fence like me. So now, I will not get Ghost....good job Activision.  :) EA isn't dumb enough to tell us that a new madden is coming out in 2014 right after (or before) the one in 2013 comes out.

Shame Ghosts ended on one hell of a cliffhanger. Wish we had more of that.


But if Treyarch is prepping a narrative that's as compelling as Black Ops 2, I say bring it on.

What this means is all the COD fans are paying for is NEW MAPS AND NEW MENUS

Looks like my fears have been confirmed: Activision is going to keep cranking out SKylanders annually until they kill off the franchise. Granted, it'll probably take a while given the target audience (young children).

What they say: "New CoD game releasing in 2014."

What they mean: "Papa needs a new diamond studded Rolex!"

it will be the Treyarch version, so for me, no new COD until 2015 =]

I'm really starting to think that Bobby Kotick is trolling. Does he really need to tell us that a new COD is coming out in 2014? Why bother telling the public that when we already know.

PosiTVEMinD355

Oh goodie,  Definitely didn't see this coming!!!  Another year another copy and past bullshit CoD game.  Poor parents having to spend a full $60 to buy their children (who aren't even supposed to play this) rehashed trash.   So what is it this time?  CoD MW4?  CoD BO3?  CoD Ghost 2?

@therapyhiccup Whats wrong with Treyarch? I can't judge Ghost's but Infinity Ward lost the plot with MW3, Black Ops 1 and 2 was far superior in many ways.

@Kristhomas123 I might actually buy a "CoD: Old west" game. Anything but WWII, modern, or near future would be appreciated at least. Not that I'm their intended audience anyway though.

@Pondelicious @therapyhiccup i prefer how the game feels. the running, shooting, aiming that sort of thing. and i'm just talking about multiplayer here. i've played both Black Ops and the previous 3 MW and i always prefer the Infinity Ward versions. 

and i am saying 'prefer', im not stating that one is better than the other.
