The few remaining developers at Infinity Ward are already hard at work on a new game, and it’s been revealed that the next title on their slate is Call of Duty-related. Surprise!
The news was confirmed during the publisher’s first-quarter 2010 conference call, by Activision CFO Thomas Tippl.
“We have not yet confirmed the individual plans for (the franchise) next year.
“We don’t usually do this at this time. We’re very focused on our communication right now on the release for this year. What we have said is that Infinity Ward is working on a Call of Duty title and you’ll hear more details as we advance through the year.”
The “release for this year” is of course Call of Duty: Black Ops, which is being due for release later this year, and currently in development by Santa Monica studio Treyarch (Call of Duty: World at War).
…and before the rumour mill goes into overdrive, it has not been confirmed that IW are working on Modern Warfare 3 – but by the same token, it has not been denied, either.
