Next-gen Call of Duty in works at Treyarch?
Job listing at California-based Call of Duty studio asks for senior software engineer to join team "bringing our hugely successful game to a new console."
Last week, Activision-owned Vicarious Visions was linked to development for Nintendo's Wii U. It appears Vicarious Visions isn't the only Activision developer working on projects for a new console.
A job listing at Call of Duty studio Treyarch calls for a senior software engineer to join a team "bringing our hugely successful game to a new console." Though not named outright, Call of Duty has become the studio's signature series. Last year's Treyarch-developed Call of Duty: Black Ops sold around 25 million copies for the publisher through early August. The studio has not shipped a title outside of the shooter franchise since 2008, when it released both the James Bond-based Quantum of Solace and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.
The job listing does little to shed additional light on the project, though the phrasing of bringing a specific game to a new console could suggest a port. The job description notes that the chosen candidate will "adapt graphics and other major systems in our engine to a new platform."
As for what the "new console" might be, there are a number of possibilities. At the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Activision pledged to support Nintendo's newest console, the Wii U. Beyond that, there are rumors the next Xbox could be unveiled at E3 2012, and a source claiming to be present at a "high level" Sony meeting pegged the PlayStation 4 as being readied for announcement or release in 18 months.
The next Call of Duty entry--Modern Warfare 3--is due out on November 8 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, DS, and Wii. Modern Warfare 3 picks up where Modern Warfare 2 left off, and it is set on a global stage. Players will fight on multiple continents in places like London, France, Germany, and New York City.
