‘Call Of Duty’ Franchise Moves To Three-Year Cycle

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

For the past handful of years, the Call of Duty franchise has alternated their yearly game titles between developers Infinity Ward (Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, Ghosts) and Treyarch (Call of Duty 3, World At War, Black Ops, Black Ops II).

Publisher Activision has decided to change this up now, switching to a three-year cycle. This will begin later this year with the first entry in the series developed by Sledgehammer Games. Adding a third developer will allow each of the three a third year to make the best game they can instead of the two years Treyarch—whose next game will be released in 2015—and Infinity Ward—whose next game will be released in 2016—have been working with.

We were shown plenty of gameplay from the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts, during E3 week, but the multiplayer aspect of the game had been kept hush-hush. Until today.

Publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward held a big event dedicated just to showing off the new multiplayer action, and even streamed it live to the world. Many things were discussed, but surely you only want to see the good stuff.

The world premiere multiplayer reveal trailer for Ghosts has been released, and you can check it out below along with a live demonstration of one of the new multiplayer modes.

E3 2013: Two New ‘Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ Gameplay Demos Released

The other big first-person shooter franchise being shown off at E3 2013, Call of Duty, also happens to be the undefeated king of the genre. Battlefield 3 tried to take a run at the crown when it came out—and many were convinced it would take COD out—but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 once again proved emphatically that the throne is still theirs to sit. Now Battlefield 4 is on the way, and it has Call of Duty: Ghosts in its sights.

It’s an interesting year for Call of Duty, as it’s Infinity Ward’s turn to take the wheel but they are not making the fourth installment in the Modern Warfare series as many expected. Instead it’s Ghosts, and a chance to try something new. Though judging by these new gameplay demos, it’s still the Call of Duty game you’d expect it to be. That said, they have brought in Oscar-winning filmmaker Stephen Gaghan to help with the story, so it could surprise some people in the end.

You can check out two new gameplay demos for Call of Duty: Ghosts below now, one of which shows how you can use your new canine companion, and the other shows some underwater action.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Image

In case you missed it, Microsoft showed off their Xbox 360 follow-up, the Xbox One, earlier today. As promised, video games weren’t a very big part of the presentation as this particular event was dedicated to showing the console and talking about the company’s vision for the future. The games will be on full display when E3 arrives next month.

There were, however, a couple of video game-related topics covered, the biggest of which was the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts, which is Infinity Ward’s follow-up to Modern Warfare 3. The game smartly looks to up the story—with the help of Oscar-winning Traffic screenwriter and Syriana writer-director Stephen Gaghan—instead of just the action, and will hopefully keep the series fresh and fun.

A look at the game’s next-gen tech and new features was offered first, followed by the reveal trailer. Continue below now to check them out.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Image

After a few whispers that the next game in the Call of Duty video game franchise would actually be called Call of Duty: Ghosts and not Modern Warfare 4, publisher Activision has confirmed the new title.

According to the press release sent out, the game will “set the benchmark for the next generation,” and that it will offer a brand new world with a brand new story and characters, all built on a brand new next-gen Call of Duty engine from developer Infinity Ward.

An exclusive first look at the game will be presented during Microsoft’s big next-gen Xbox reveal on May 21st, but for now, a teaser trailer has been released and can be watched below.

Modern Warfare 3 Image

It’s almost a rhetorical question to ask—the Call of Duty video game franchise has grossed an insane amount of money over the past few years—but it’s still something that does have a question mark at the end. Has Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 been confirmed already, a couple of weeks before Call of Duty: Black Ops II arrives?

According to Bill Murray (no, not that one), the actor who voices the popular character Captain Price, development on the game has already begun.

Modern Warfare 3

Despite much drama and what looked like a significant potential fanbase loss, Activision has done it again, breaking the day-one video game release record for the third consecutive year with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

In its first 24 hours the game sold 6.5 million copies (including its record-breaking pre-orders), which equals out to $400 million. That breaks last year’s record of $360 million set by Call of Duty: Black Ops, and the prior year’s record of $310 million set by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

E3 2011: ‘Modern Warfare 3’ VS. ‘Battlefield 3’ … Which Will YOU Play?

For those of you who don’t know, Activision’s Call of Duty video game franchise has been the top dog when it comes to warfare and especially when it comes to online (non-MMO) multiplayer action for a long while now. But after they forced out many of the top talent they had working for them at Infinity Ward, most fans were angered by the harsh, overdramatic tactics used in basically just “firing” these gentlemen, and confidence in how good the next chapter in their ultra-popular series, Modern Warfare 3, would end up being.

As all of that drama was playing out, DICE was busy making a game titled Battlefield 3 for EA using the new Frostbite 2 engine. And when a demo of how the game looked showed up, many bitter Call of Duty fans seemed ready to jump ship without a second thought…especially with rumors of Activision starting to charge people to play online. We eventually found out that the new pay service was simply an added bonus for those who wanted to get it, and that everyone could continue playing online as they have been…but is it too late already?

Both titles are being shown off in-depth at this year’s E3 convention, so all we can do is watch and see which way we’re leaning. You can see video “arguments” for both games below—watch them and share who you plan on playing come this fall! Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3…who will it be?

First ‘Modern Warfare 3’ Gameplay Trailer Shows Chaos In New York City, England, Paris & Germany

The first gameplay trailer for Modern Warfare 3, the next installment in the mega-hit Call of Duty franchise, has found its way online.

Some people seem to be growing tired of the games, especially after the drama that ended in Activision strong-arming out many of their Infinity Ward employees, but for everyone who impatiently waits to see each year’s new title, you should be Christmas Morning-happy with what you’re about to see.

The first gameplay trailer shows off something teased in the very first trailer released for the game: that it would take place (at least partially) in New York City — a familiar location to all of us. But that won’t be the only location (though can you imagine a multiplayer map in the middle of Time Square, kids?); other places you’ll throw down with enemies include England, Paris, and Germany.

You can see the trailer by clicking on over to the other side now.

Activision Brings In New Team To Help Infinity Ward Develop ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’

Back in March of 2010, a strange string of events unfolded when news broke that a group of what was described as “bouncer-type” security guards entered the offices of Infinity Ward, the video game developers behind the popular Modern Warfare games in the Call of Duty franchise.

Ultimately it was revealed that two of the founders and current heads of Infinity Ward, Jason West and Vince Zampella, were fired by parent company Activision for “breaches of contract and insubordination,” leaving the future of the Modern Warfare series in question.

While many lawsuits have come of that mess, Activision has re-staffed all of the vacant positions at Infinity Ward and — even though the game hasn’t been officially announced — they have been working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ever since, with full expectations to meet their normal November release date…until now. It’s being reported by The LA Times that Activision has brought in a new team to help develop the third installment, which means things might not be going so smoothly.
