Activision has confirmed that new Call of Duty and Skylanders titles will release in 2014.

CEO Bobby Kotick announced the unnamed titles during the publisher's Q3 2013 earnings call last night, stating: "Despite short-term uncertainties, as we look forward to 2014, we have a very strong product pipeline. We expect multiple new releases across our major franchises, including the first Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls, along with the PS4 version of Diablo III and significant and exciting new content for World of Warcraft.

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

While it's still unknown what next year's Call of Duty title could be, Sledgehammer is rumoured to be working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launched this Tuesday following the launch of the Skylanders: Swap Force last month. Both titles are also due to release on next-gen consoles

How shocking. COD comes out every year. It's basically a sports game at this point.

I would love to be working at Infinity Ward though. Recycling old videos, change a few textures here and there. Slap on a new theme. $60 please, 20mill + sold

I bet the dev costs of Ghosts is minimal, maybe 10-20mill and they make billions within days. What a profit

Didn't expect that. I mean the last one barely made 1 billion in a day. Why do they bother?

Such arrogance. COD is fantastic, for what it is. Please note every series which tried to ape COD and FAILED. Infinity Ward are excellent devs.

When will they realise that the series are stagnated? A game needs, at least. two years of dev time to guarantee innovation, quality and level of polish enough. That's why Ghosts looks exactly the same as any CoD after Modern Warfare, even on next gen platforms! Damn, they even copied and pasted an entire sequence from MW2. Ridiculous lol

CoD budget is easily in the $80-100 million range. Don't know where do they spend it though.

Oh,I´m sure they realise how stale the series has become for years,but it works great for activision,they don´t even make a big effort to develop those games anymore,spend a lot more in advertising than development because they know there´s millions of simpleminded imbeciles that will buy it every year.

Pretty sure the games do have two years of dev time first off... Second pretty sure their method works right now as it made a billion in one day.

Then it's obvious that two years are not enough for them.
