Rumor: Sgt. Frank Woods reportedly hints no new Treyarch title till next year

20140120-095810.jpg

Sgt. Frank Woods on his twitter account has RTed an interesting tweet.

He tweeted out at first saying, “I keep seeing a lot of guessing out there…trying to predict the next step for COD.” Then a user tweeted out saying “No zombies or Frank Woods for 2 years =;(“, and Frank Woods RTed this tweet with a reply, “Well there is nam zombies the movie ….kinda has both.”

And while we’re talking about this, it seems that the Sledgehammer Games twitter account just recently (very recently) got verified on Twitter.

With these new hints, it’s seems more and more likely that Sledgehammer Games is coming out this year. For now, nothing has been officially confirmed except for the fact that a new Call of Duty game is coming out this year.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • SiftBlade

      An extra year will make zombies bigger and better than ever, and hopefully PS4/XB1/PC exclusive. Just think of the possibilities within multiplayer and zombies. They sky is the limit.

      • K.9

        No, im a 360 player, i want it on there

        • mile104mc

          Going on 9 year old consoles are holding games back. If Treyarch wants a good game, they need to drop legacy support.

      • http://Youtube.com/user/lallyofthevalley Nemesis_96

        Very true, but I can’t wait through another year for zombies :S I need more noww!

        • https://YouTube.com/user/mrestrogenugn Mr. Estrogen

          I’m assuming you have a job. Save up for a gaming tower, buy W@W or BO1 (Or 2 if they released the community mod tool) and play User Generated Maps. That should hold you over for a year.

          • http://Youtube.com/user/lallyofthevalley Nemesis_96

            Nah I’m still at school lol, but you have just given me incentive to get a weekend job xD

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        AAhhmm. But the zombies storyline is done.

        • The Telephone Pole .

          Yeah, but it could be like Halo where it supposedly was meant to end at Halo 3. But they add a 4 and say they are starting a “new” trilogy. (Halo 4 was Bad, 3 was good by the way)

        • fires

          No, its a paradox. Origins takes place back in time before the first zombies map. IF it was fake and toyed, what was with the future? If it ends in the beginning, current zombies maps wouldnt happen. And if its all just a childs game in their mind, it means we could go to candyland and kill zombies and have it make sense.

          • K.E.M

            And at the end,you could see a zombie at the window,so a real outbreak happened

        • SiftBlade

          Just because zombies returns doesn’t mean they have to follow the same storyline. It could be a different storyline with different characters, but still linked to the Origins ending.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            It would be pretty fuking awesome if it had a paradox shit just like Bioshock Infinite’s ending, with the same characters, etc.

        • CGkillZ

          I never liked the storyline I thought it was stupid in BO2 but that doesn’t mean they won’t make new maps all you need is some badass guns and cool map design.

          • SiftBlade

            It was dumb in BO2, it was good in WAW & BO1. The zombies storyline should have ended at moon.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Yes, but zombies was all about easter eggs. That was the fucking cool part of it. Also, I like how people disliked my comment even though it’s the truth…

          • CGkillZ

            It’s not just about the easter eggs. Yeah they were alright in BO1 but thats it for me. I never cared for them and thought that they were a waste of time. I’d rather have a cool map then gay ass easter eggs.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            xD. You know that if the zombies mode hadn’t easter eggs, it wouldn’t be as big as it is, right? It game-mode starts to be boring as hell when you reach 20+ rounds… Maybe 30+ rounds. I let zombies kill me when I reach a round between 27 and 38…

          • TheShadowReaper

            wouldnt be as big if no easter eggs? who cares about easter eggs? i was playing zombies with my friends to have fun, we never gave a single fuck about easter eggs, as many others have done so too – i’m sure about it.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            The zombies mode became huge even Black Ops came out. And the easter eggs came along. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvfcetDELf8
            it has 2’666’129 views. Ye, I think it’s a big deal. And don’t tell me that the game-mode isn’t boring after round 40-50+. You must be fucking crazy to lose so much time just running in circles. xD

          • TheShadowReaper

            him having a lot of views means nothing, no wrong…it actually works in MY favor. since many of us never did any easter eggs on these maps we were giving views to guys like him to see what the easter egg were. i probably did one or two easter eggs on Ascension and thats because they were easy. and no were werent running the circle strategies…not a lot at least. and that made zombies challenging and fun. so yeah, you got your answer.

          • CGkillZ

            See but that’s you. The best maps were the ones that didn’t have huge Easter eggs. They don’t really matter as much as raw gameplay. If they didn’t but alot of focus on them I think the gameplay may be better.

        • Trizay

          No it’s not. Origins like MOB is in an alternate universe, so nothing that happened in Origins had anything to do with the main storyline.

          • MichiganerE

            Origins is the prequel to the main stroyline…

          • Trizay

            In a way yes, but also no. Origins and Mob of the Dead are both in an alternate universes. There is a lot of evidence that supports thus theory such as: in Origins Samantha doesn’t have here German accent and also just sounds different, In Origins Samantha is not actually Maxis’ daugter, Origins takes place in WWI during this time period Samantha shouldn’t even have been born yet, also if Origins takes place in WWI then the original characters should be a lot younger than they are, I actually just thought of this next one, if Origins is a prequel then wtf happens after they reach Agartha do they get out and then the story continues from there?

          • MichiganerE

            Origins is the prequel. Samantha goes back in time to tell Maxis that she is his future daughter. The characters are all in their early to mid twenties, and once they go into Agartha it causes a major time paradox, or it causes the story to never happen. I’m sure Treyarch will explain everything in their next game. Also, Samantha has a different accent because they felt like giving her a different actress.

          • Trizay

            Well how do you explain this, we all know that in the original story Maxis supposedly died (not really) when Richtofen teleported him and Samantha to the moon base since this has been a part of the story since W@W. In Origins Richtofen cuts out Maxis’ brain and puts it in the Maxis drone. Basically Maxis’ fate in Origins is completely different from what we’ve known to be true thus far. Also a big reason why I support this theory is because it pushes aside the whole, “it’s a children’s game thing” which is something that I hated Treyarch for doing. One last thing, as I said before, Origins and Mob of the Dead weren’t even made by the zombies team, they were made by the campaign team.

          • MichiganerE

            I know the campaign team worked on Origins and Mob of the Dead. Also, Maxis doesn’t have any kind of fate, he was dying in his original body. So Richtofen put his brain in a drone for the time being to save his life. Then puts his brain in new and younger body before WaW. Also , I have all my info from the CoD wiki. Here’s a link: http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/Zombies_(mode)/Story

          • Trizay

            Just read the whole page. The end kinda mindfucked me. That page actually made somewhat more okay with the ending of Origins being a true part of the story. Altought i still believe that the story could function properly without Origins being involved. Many people have noticed that the zombies storyline has a large affiliation with cycles but it seems like even the main storyline is just a huge cycle which only leaves me more confused.

          • MichiganerE

            Let’s just agree the whole zombies storyline is a huge mindfucking nightmare in itself.

          • Trizay

            Agreed

      • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

        I honestly didn’t like Black Ops 2 zombies too much. I liked the simplicity of Black Ops 1 zombies. Just my opinion though.

        • SiftBlade

          Yes, BO2 zombies were good at best, whereas maps like ascension and der riese were great.

    • Jesse

      NONONONONONO!!!!! I want zombies!! Not another year of bored gameplay!! Ah gawd!

      • Drew Keniger

        I would agree with you but Destiny looks like a COD killer, I’m not a hater, I LOVE zombies and multiplayers ok but I think I’ll pass cod until the next treyarch game.

        • https://YouTube.com/user/mrestrogenugn Mr. Estrogen

          I haven’t seen a lot on destiny yet, but from what I see, I feel it won’t be a CoD killer. What I can see happening is Respawn re-negotiating the exclusivity deal and getting Titanfall on the PS4.

        • 111AlaN111

          I think of Destiny as Halo killer. Bungie wants to finish what they started. I hope Halo gives a good fight. Titanfall is the COD killer BUT FOR MULTIPLAYER ONLY. Zombies and maybe Extinction would be the COD saviors. I don’t think the COD franhise could ever go down, but only why they have zombies and extinction, but I don’t think there will be a single game when Treyarch hasn’t zombies in it

        • SiftBlade

          Destiny is like Halo for Playstation (even though it’s on both consoles). COD still beats Halo on Xbox, so I think it’ll be the same on playstation.

          • alberto suarez

            I’m very interested to see what will happen when halo 2 is re-released on xbox one. Around the same time as destiny, and sunset overdrive. I honestly think after ghosts, they need a break to recuperate. The series is old and ghosts was such a step back in the wrong direction. They just need a year for people to want cod again then they will release it when people are dying for it. Ghosts got awful reviews and sold less than black ops 2. It showed a nick in the COD armor and Activision cant let their billion dollar baby go down.

            Either way it will be better as treyarch will get more time to design and with the dedicated servers on xbox one…Maybe we could actually have an amazing cod.

            I personally think that black ops 2 would have been one of the best cods if it hadnt been for all the inconsistencies that come from a peer hosted game (booting, lag, etc…) League was probably the best thing that could have ever happened to cod. Sadly being DDos’d every other game ruins it..

  • John

    I’m actually happy beacause they may release a way different CoD and it sould be interesting but i’m also sad that i have to wait 1 more year for zombies :(

    • fires

      but SH games needs a 3rd game mode too. It might be real good.

      • CGkillZ

        it’ll be is spec ops that’s probably why Ghosts doesn’t have it.

        • Michael Atari

          Spec Ops is bollocks lol.

  • SiftBlade

    Okay, it’s almost undeniable now. All of these tip us towards a Sledgehammer Games title coming out, basically confirming our suspicions.

    • KenethKaniff

      hey look, a talking dog

      • James K

        RileyWoof’s distant cousin.

      • Work Hard, Twerk Harder

        Notice this dog too :(

  • Michael Atari

    Now we have to wait 2 years for a Treyarch COD whilst we deal with mediocre bull crap IW and Sledgehammer CODs, fuck this but it’ll still be worth the wait. I reckon Treyarch is working on a new engine.

    • HenryDF

      So you’re judging the Sledgehammer game, not only before it’s come out, but before we know anything about it and before it even exists? Wow, ok.

    • SiftBlade

      COD Ghosts was the transitioning COD between the old gen and this gen. COD MW4 (Or whatever it’s called) will be the game where the developers start to get used to the capabilities. In 2 years (BO3), Treyarch will have enough time to explore PS4/XB1 and find it’s true limit on what it can handle. I expect an amazing Treyarch game in 2 years, and I think it’s going to be worth the wait.

    • Keshav Bhat

      No offense, but I’m sure you’re one of the people who says this every year. “Treyarch is SHIT, IW needs to save us!!” *IW releases a game* “I LOVE YOU TREYARCH, SCREW IW”. Please, stop calling IW and SHGames bull crap. You don’t even know what SHGames is working on to say that.

      • HenryDF

        Far too right Keshav. Far, far too right.

        I’d understand if people were calling the next IW game shit and not looking forward to it – I really would. For people to be judging a game that we know nothing (and that’s absolutely nothing) about is pathetic, but to be already comparing it to a game that we know even less about is beyond childish.

        • Michael Atari

          You do realise that SHGames were heavily involved with MW3…? http://sledgehammergames.com/games

          • HenryDF

            Yep? I’m sorry, but simply because we’ve seen one, shared development effort from them from three years ago, I’m really not going to base that on the upcoming game.

            We don’t know how long they’ve been working on this game (they were working on one before they were pulled in for MW3), we don’t know anything about its content or about its tech. I’m not judging it.

          • Michael Atari

            I don’t want to base the next SH COD on MW3 but that’s all we can base it on…

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            You know that Treyarch made Black Ops, right?

          • Michael Atari

            Are you trying to say Black Ops was a bad COD? Because it’s easily one of the best if not the best. IMO it was the best.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Was pretty bad IMO.
            Although I liked BO2 much more. Don’t know why.

          • The Telephone Pole .

            To me it was pretty balanced, until those quick scopers arrived…

          • Michael Atari

            What was bad about BO1 exactly?

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Stupid storyline, every PS3 owner’s nightmare, took way too much stuff from their “older brother” etc.

          • Michael Atari

            Sorry but I have to agree to disagree with you. I was PS3 owner too and didn’t suffer from any “nightmares” the story mode was not cheesy and actually required some level of intellect to understand the twists etc. COD always takes something from the previous COD, not a bad thing and as far as I’m concerned BO1 added COD points etc so there was a lot of new stuff too. To each to their own I guess…

          • TheShadowReaper

            yes it was the best. dont listen to idiots, let them play their MW3.

          • Keshav Bhat

            That made my list as one of the worst CoD games personally. It was a wrecked mess for PS3 fans.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Indeed. And felt to me so… weird…

          • Keshav Bhat

            Yes. I liked MW3. I don’t see why people didn’t.

            EDIT: I actually do why see some people did; but those issues didn’t bother me.

          • Michael Atari

            So you never died 5 times in a row whilst in the enemies sights? You must have got lucky lol.

          • Work Hard, Twerk Harder

            Woo! Another person who enjoys MW3 as much as me. Here I am thinking I’ll never see someone like us…

      • Michael Atari

        No offense taken I’ve seen ppl like this too lol but that’s just not me my friend. Treyarch fanboy since WAW. Never said anything bad about them. or said “IW save us” lol did u not see my posts about how shit MW3 and Ghosts is even during their prime.

        I do not hate IW/SHGames, COD4,MW2 were gr8, however ever since MW3 i have lost all hope in those developers and rightfully so. I’ve always preferred Treyarch games but that is just me. I’ll take back calling IW/SH bull crap developers, i know they try hard to produce something good with their smaller workforce, but MW3/Ghosts is still shit imo. Whatever SHGames produce I hope it’s good and beats Treyarchs high standards but based on what they done with MW3 I think their next game is going to follow suit and be another mediocre to shit COD.

        PS That’s just my initial prediction so don’t get mad, I KNOW full well that I may wrong and it could be the best COD ever made. But hey it’s early days.

      • Chris Mason

        I would make you a cake for saying this. I am sick of flip-flop, flavor of the year CoD fans. I came from a generation of gaming where you buy it, its yours, zero support, we can’t change it, have a nice day. Kids and their whining and sense of entitlement with games today really disgusts me.

      • The Telephone Pole .

        They may have a new game experience, since they were thinking of an action adventure. They only helped in MW3 any way. So i’m interested to see what they make.

      • TheShadowReaper

        well i’m here every year praising Treyarch and shiting on IW, why dont i get a hate mail? SH Games sounds cool, something new, i’m open to new ideas. but seriously Keshav, i dont believe there are many that would say “IW SAVIOR OF COD” ever. not in a million years after so much bullshit with MW3 and Ghosts. i see your point but…i also see a hole in your point! ^^

    • chief

      Hopefully 3arc goes back to making it for the players instead of BO2 which was made for a spectators.

  • K.9

    well shit… good thing custom zombies will tied over the gap

    • Jesse

      Still hoping they will make custom zombies for black ops (2) or for the next cod

  • Idk but

    Wasn’t is rumored that sledgehammer was gonna do a mw game? What if they are working on cod4/mw2 remake?

    • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

      A remake for a 6/4 year old game? If they will make a remake them, it will be a sign that Call of Duty really is dying…

    • Keshav Bhat

      The rumors are they are working on MW4. No remakes.

  • Adam

    I take what this guy says with a grain of salt.

    • Mitch

      Well, he does play one of the 2 (the other being A. Mason) leading characters

  • Gery Baboona

    Treyarch the new lead CoD dev and will launch in 2015 with a new engine. Boom, calling it now.

    • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

      New lead CoD dev? what does that mean?

      • Gery Baboona

        Well I always felt up until around MW2 IW (west Zempalla) they were the major dev, since BO Treyarch were slowly taking over, they are almost there with BO2 and the next game from them will cement the fact they are in pole position as the lead CoD dev. They’ll launch possibly black ops 3 with a brand new next gen engine and blow people away.

        *this maybe all wrong but it’s fun to speculate. :)

        • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

          Actually, Black Ops was a setback in the engine…

          • Gery Baboona

            In some areas yea, but they also did a lot right with the game. They also did a lot right in BO2, but again some areas let that game down.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            And don’t forget that IW are 2 times smaller than Treyarch.

          • chief

            Not really. They just advanced in a separate direction than the MW. Just because it’s a different graphical style (colors, more basic shapes), doesn’t mean the engine was set back…

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            No, they used the W@W engine, not the more advanced MW2 engine.

          • chief

            MW2 used the CoD 4 engine and made advancements to it. BO1 used the CoD 4 engine and made different advancements to it.

          • TheShadowReaper

            its not the more advanced or a setback…3arc took the IW 3.0 engine and modified it to their needs. they didnt change the number, thats all! i mean can you really be SO stupid? or are you an IW fanboy and cant handle the truth?

          • TheShadowReaper

            if you play on PC then you know that BO1 is the best COD to date in both visuals and sounds. maybe Ghosts is better visually, but it loses in everything else. some mock BO1 for its colors, but its the cold war era, if you dont like it go shove MW2 up your ass.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Somebody is a bit butthurt…

          • TheShadowReaper

            go back to your first comment to find out who that is…

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            I wouldn’t say that if you haven’t typed “go shove MW2 up your ass”
            What the fuck dude?

          • TheShadowReaper

            wasnt me who wasnt talking about setbacks in the engine that dont exist now, was i?

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            I was a setback, they used an older version of the engine.

          • TheShadowReaper

            so you are working for Treyarch and so happen to know? cause it was way better looking that both MW2 and MW3. you sound ridiculous.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name
          • TheShadowReaper

            so we dont give any attention to:
            – Texture streaming technology
            – Stereoscopic 3D support
            – Deferred lighting
            which none of them were present in IW 4.0 but its still a worst engine. sure. just because they put a 4.0 instead of a 3.0 it became a better engine…*sign* such a derp you are.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Don’t fight in something you don’t know about.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yes that my line. also, eyes do not deceive. BO1 is superior to most COD games, especially the ones that use IW 4 engine. i guess it was really just a number change.

        • lalala

          almost there except for connection and hit detection

        • fires

          Might be the fact that IW has been making cod games until cod 3, and that the game really took up at mw. Of course it makes Treyarch look small… They also never had a new engine to keep the 60fps on console, when current gen becomes obsolete(rumored to be until 2016) They won’t abandon their audience. Its also funny, because this lead CoD BS wouldnt be aroused if it was SH games making the game for 2015.

      • Michael Atari

        The fact Activision is giving Treyarch more time to produce could imply they are now priority COD developers.

        • Keshav Bhat

          No. Because then Infinity Ward will also have three years for their next title. There is NO lead developer.

        • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

          If Sledgehammer is making the next Call of Duty game then both of the developers get more time…

          • Michael Atari

            Well the decision was specifically made now by Activision, at a point were Treyarch,usually, traditionally or should be making the next COD.

          • Keshav Bhat

            If SHGames comes out this year, there’s many different reasons. One: IW came out in 2013 because ATVI wanted them to introduce Call of Duty to next gen. Two: SHGames coming this year would be good because of Destiny releasing September.

            Not because Treyarch is becoming any lead developer.

          • Michael Atari

            Have you ever thought that Treyarch might have asked ATVI for more time to make a new engine (considering the increased possibilities on the now current-gen consoles) and perhaps a new story arc? (I doubt they will make BO3 with such a large gap)

          • K.E.M

            I want whatever your on.
            obviously a guy that isn’t high can come up with this stupid ridiculous shit you posted.

          • Michael Atari

            Wanna know what I’m on?

            The truth.

          • Moeen

            I don’t understand how it would be good because Destiny is coming out? Is there something going on between the two?

          • Work Hard, Twerk Harder

            Destiny is rumoured to be the “cod killer”, while also still being owned by Activision. With Treyarch being the favourite dev team, sharing similar times would affect the sales possibly. Like Activision is known for (a quick example, that extremely bad walking dead game), they don’t mind making a sacrifice, just incase, this time it’s SH as they’re sort of the little one against IW and 3arc.
            IMO I don’t think Destiny is going to be the cod killer, and sales only to be a bit lower than every other year if they decide to advertise cod as well as they usually do, but Activision nevertheless are ready incase there is a downfall for cod this year.

            Or I could be completely wrong and 3arc just wanted to be last to show off next gen cod for themselves.

          • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

            Destiny isn’t even the same genre.

          • Work Hard, Twerk Harder

            “First person shooter” is a type of genre, but I get what you’re saying since it’s all Sci-fi

          • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

            First person shooter is an extremely broad genre. lol

          • TheShadowReaper

            no its not. FPS games are a piece of Action games as a genre. now that is broad. but FPS being broad as a genre? nah. its just that we see a lot of FPS games these days and think its a genre by itself when in reality its not, its a part of a genre.

            Don’t forget, “quickscoping is not in the game.”

        • fires

          *as I get sprayed down by an LSAT TF FMJ, while he uses Ghost pro, double tap, and juggernaut*

          • Mitch

            double tap? juggernaut? Ghosts pro? wut u drinking boi? Also, if you complain about BO2’s version of the Ghost perk, you really need to pay less attention to your mini-map, and more to the actual map.

          • fires

            I was commenting on Treyarch’s mishaps, their, “mw2noobtoobs”, “quickscopes”,”ACRs”. The LSAT one was fairly obvious, but, i was commenting on BO’s OP Ghost Pro, and WaW’s OP Double tap, Juggernaut + MP40 combo. Don’t even get me started with the FAMAS…

          • TheShadowReaper

            the Famas was never OP in BO. never. its just you that cant win a gunfight vs a Famas user. there were way better weapons than the Famas in the game, yet most bitch about the Famas cause bitching is for losers…and losers are always there to bitch about something. just like a never ending cycle.

          • fires

            Same could be said with a weapon that is hated alot in mw, the ACR, i was just pointing out a popular one, whether its obviously OP, or just good, it was popular for a reason. I can’t really complain either, since i used the AUG back in BO.

          • TheShadowReaper

            you can call them popular yes, but not OP as you mentioned them above. i was finding myself handicapped when was using the AUG and Famas but when was using Commando, AK47 and Galil i was wrecking face. the complaints mostly came from console users due to the usability of Famas and AUG alongside with aim assist. but since there is no such thing on PC, these weapons didnt flourished here as they did on consoles.

          • anthonydaher1216

            there is no ghost pro double tap and jug and ghost in bo2 makes it so if your in one spot your still on the mini map… FACEPALM!!!!

            FACEPALM!!!! you didnt read i was nodding at past treyarch games

        • NebraskaFTW

          What in my opinion caused IW to became not so great a company was the 2011 separation which half the studio left and went on to become Respawn Entertainment and releasing Titan Fall

          • Jake the Ripper

            No offense to the idiots who think Destiny will CoD, how’s about you all look at Titanfall, the game that has at least 38 old infinity ward members plus Vince Zampella and Jason West. That’s the “true CoD Killer” unfortunately.

          • Cycovision

            Yep, because we all know exclusives beat out multiplatform games….wait….
            As for destiny everything I’ve heard indicated its a MMOFPS which is a whole different ballgame
            As of now there is no “CoD killer” anywhere to be found

          • Jon Cameron

            It being exclusive to 2 of 3 platforms doesn’t mean it can’t “kill” CoD.

          • Cycovision

            Yes, it does.

          • TheShadowReaper

            is Titanfall a military shooter? NOPE. is Titanfall coming out on all platforms and not just Xbox and PC? NOPE.

            these 2 are enough reasons to say that Titanfall isnt anywhere near COD level so killing COD is out of the question. also to kill COD you need to be popular as a game to do so. i mean nearly no one knows Titanfall as much as COD so…NOPE!

    • K.E.M

      Your stupid.
      Boom calling it now.

    • chief

      Engine means nothing. Engine is simply tools that’s it. All a new engine would potentially fix is shooting out the head or something. It’s about the games feeling. Look at Titanfall, they made Source Engine look and feel like CoD.

      Keep in mind, Treyarch is the one that use IW Engine at first, i don’t think they are going to leave it , lol. But then again, codes are not cement , they can be deleted and replaced.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      I HOPE!

  • Ricardo

    So Treyarch will have a second year to work on campaign, multiplayer and ZOMBIES!!! It’s a blessing in disguise.

    • The Telephone Pole .

      I’m pretty sure they will have a new engine. A real new engine.

    • Mitch

      I am really hoping for 3 maybe 4 zombie maps.

  • zack

    The rumor is that sledgehammer games is making mw4 but that its a cod 4 remake.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Where is this rumor from? No one has said anything about any remake.

      • zack

        Its floating around youtube and ive seen topics about it on some forums. obviously there is no credibility to this, but it would be awesome nonetheless.

        • Mitch

          Then it’s not a rumor, it’s just something some jack-ass pulled out of his ass.

          • Guest

            The reason i brought it up was there were a couple of videos last summer i saw on youtube saying sledgehammer games was making the next cod and that it could possibly be a cod 4 remake. They were right about the first part it seems, so there may be a chance the second part has some credibility

          • Mitch

            The CoD4 part is completely made-up by fans.

    • Aldo

      Personally, I’d rather they remade MW2 but without OMA, Danger Close and Commando.

  • Maverick

    About a year or so ago I wondered to myself it they might go with a three year rotation? With a new console generation and three main dev studios maybe a little of the burden could be lifted from each one. There is the potential for mor variety there, but damn if I want to wait 3 years between new zombies releases.

  • CrazyBullet919

    If Sledgehammer is making the next CoD I can’t wait, not to say that if Treyarch was next I would’t be happy, but I like the light and graphics more on games by other studios than Treyarch.

    • ZermbiesFurLife

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/srom3881 Srom

    That means it will take 2 years for each developing team to come up with a CoD game but we will still get a new CoD every single year.

    • 3yearsDev

      3 years, they start development some time after they finish the game

      -Vonderhaar isn’t that bad
      Common sense.

      • Aldo

        NOTHING counters bad hit detection! And we shouldn’t have to if they coded the game properly but every Treyarch game has suffered the same problem and I don’t see that changing for next gen.

  • some2example2

    that would suck, because ghosts is not so good. the lack of factions is making this game really repetitive, the customization is already really boring, the maps stale and generic.

    i was looking forward with what treyarch would do on next gen, bring back the factions, useful killstreaks and not the lame and boring killstreaks on ghosts, how could you not bring back the ac-130, cheap and lame.

    • Mitch

      ”factions and… killstreaks” It’s called ”Clans”, and in Treyarch’s case ”pointstreaks”.

  • Goten

    Honestly speaking, Treyarch kind of got it wrong in terms of BO2. It was too easy, too simple and it catered for 12 year old kids. Black Ops 1, however, was a completely different story. Don’t know much about CoD 3 (Yes, CoD 3 was made by Treyarch) or WaW, but I’m guessing they were average CoDs. The only good CoD that Treyarch has made was probably BO1. When you look at the CoD series as a whole, you wonder, how the hell CoD gain so much popularity? Now I don’t mean to sound biased here, but IW developed ground-breaking games that were something new and innovative for those times. These were: CoD 2, CoD 4, and to an extent, MW2. I <3 Treyarch, but I don't hate IW or SH Games either. So stop flaming guys. As for SH Games, I really can't wait to see what they're working on.

    • ZermbiesFurLife

      @disqus_IBGm5M7quN:disqus If you haven’t noticed, every infinity ward game (except cod 4) has sucked huge dick. MW2 is full of hackers, quickscoping is ridiculous. MW3 just sucked, gray color, boring game, shitty graphics, just nooo. Ghosts: Fuck this, IED’s, shitty streaks, overpowered assault rifles, huge boring maps, slow game-play, no initiative to play objective. (On black ops 2 you get points which made everyone want to do objectives so they could get “pointsteaks”.) This game is not team oriented at all. The spawns suck, and for a big map, its GREAT when you spawn on an IED. And the campers are ridiculous. Not only that but treyarch made black ops 1, the BEST cod. And if BO2 was geared to 12 year olds, what does it matter? 90% of the players are anyway. So maybe try another game if you have a problem.

      • BSOG

        That still doesn’t justify why MW3 “sucked”. You need to explain your opinions, otherwise don’t post them at all.

        • ZermbiesFurLife

          It just wasn’t generally fun, and I didn’t like the greywash or the weapons. There ya happy! Did youuu like mw3?

          • Aldo

            I did! In fact, not only did I like MW3 but I’m still playing it! It does have its flaws but then so does every CoD (including CoD4).
            I don’t understand why it gets so much hate as for me, it’s very fast and very fun which, as a rusher, is what I crave. Take out Dead Man’s Hand, tweak the Support Strike Package and throw in a few larger maps and MW3 would be a great game.

          • BSOG

            MW3 was, personally, my favourite CoD. I especially enjoyed the Campaign with 100.3% completion. I couldn’t complete the 2 player Spec Ops missions though, due to a lack of friends. And with Multiplayer, I had fun with all the different combinations of Perks, Guns, and Poinstreaks.

          • ZermbiesFurLife

            I will quote you, “lack of friends”

      • Goten

        I didn’t mention anything about MW3 or Ghosts, but whatever…
        I’m pretty sure I didn’t say that I had a problem playing BO2 either … in fact I pretty much beast at that CoD.

    • xSupaScopa

      Correction: World at War was the last amazing Call of Duty games. It was very well made and very fun. I still play it sometimes but it is ruined by asshole hackers

  • reece

    i thought mw3 ended the modern warfare series?

    • Mitch

      Maybe it will be a F2P MW?

      • reece

        thats a possibility but the CoD Online thats F2P activision might release worldwide instead of just a china version.. it’s a mix of MW2/BO1/MW3 im pretty sure and robot zombies. im sure you can find it on youtube if you dont know about it.

        • Mitch

          Well, since the game on LinkedIn was listed as ”the next entry in the Modern Warfare series”, I thought it maybe could be a combination of CoD 4, MW2 and MW3 with some re-balancing obviously. Take 5 maps from each game, fan favourite weapons from each game and CoD4 killstreaks. Rebalance it a bit and you have a great f2p CoD.

    • BSOG

      Well, we know it was a dramatic conclusion to the trilogy, but it doesn’t mean there won’t be a “MW4″, which I would like to hear more of.

  • Myke Fletcher

    I thought ghosts was such a disappointment that it really doesn’t matter who makes the next COD. All I want is for IW to bring out COD4 completely updated for the next gen. Don’t change anything about the gameplay just make it next gen!

    • Yeezus

      We all want a trillion dollars. We all want a re-released COD 4 for next gen. Neither of these will ever happen.

  • Mitch

    I’m really hoping for a WW2 shooter, because it’s been ages since we got a AAA WW2 shooter, I’m getting kinda done with the modern BS. Everyone is doing modern day or sci-fi shooters… C’mon Sledgehammer, WW2, gore and a new engine, make it happen!

    • xSupaScopa

      Honestly fighting in a war game that the war actually happened is more fun. Also WW2 just has this aura of greatness. The greatest generation type of thing. I love the games.

    • Lightning1432

      I honestly and so is my brother praying for a WW1 game, sort as of a prequel to WaW but since WW1 has smaller tanks, it could be easier for them to create high res small tanks if they create a new engine.

  • Yeezus

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! Why would let the people who helped make the second worst cod have their own game? Already gone back to BO2 for this year, now I’ve gotta do it again. How the hell is a small studio like Sledgehammer gonna make COD. That’s such a risky move by Activision. Nobody wants another Modern Warfare, we want Black Ops 3 or World at War 2. All I know is that with all this time, the new Call of Duty games better be damn good. I guess Sledgehammer has had 3 years so this game better be the shit, but I doubt it. I don’t want to judge a game I know nothing about but I just hope it’s nothing like Ghosts. I want some small maps and some fun fucking killstreaks. That’s what I play COD for! Based God, please help us! I miss Vonderhaar.

    • Aldo

      I’m quite sure Activision wouldn’t have taken this decision lightly and will have assessed Sledgehammer very strictly on their ability to produce the goods. Personally, I’m delighted at the decision as I, and many others, think Treyarch games are shit! Many others, like you, think the same of IW and Sledgehammer. There are tens of millions of people who play CoD and so there are a lot of opinions so it’s almost impossible to please everyone so lay off the hate until we at least see some footage of their game.

  • Alex | FamousIsLIVE

    At least Treyarch gets another year to perfect the game.

  • Ryumoau

    This is disappointing if true. I don’t think Activision can afford to have two lackluster CoD games released back to back. I have way more confidence in Treyarch’s game than i do Sledgehammer.

    • Goten

      You haven’t seen anything yet. Stop jumping to conclusions. This site is rampant with Treyarch fanboys like you. I also prefer Treyarch but it doesn’t mean I have to hate on SH Games or Infinity Ward. Geez, lighten up a bit. Sorry if I sound too negative; I just wanted to get my point across…

  • AcePhoenix007

    Even Sledgehammer Games got verified before Pewdiepie on Twitter LOL

  • Michelangelo

    I honestly don’t mind waiting for 2 years on treyarch. I mean just think about it. Treyarch has PLENTY of time to make graphics look better, possibly BETTER spawns and most importantly make the player love the game as much as the past COD’S

  • Cape6

    I just want a all zombie game :( they cant say it will take to much time or its to hard is lyeing. People make their own pc zombie maps for world at war in 8 weeks. So a trained group of 100 could make a full game in under a year and make millions of dollers. Why dont they do it :(

  • BSOG

    Did anyone take into account that they may be remaking CoD4? The signs are there, and they might even be adding extra to the game, such as 3-4 more map packs.

    • Mitch

      I don’t really get why people want a CoD4 remake. CoD4’s huge plus was one thing: it was something we had never seen before in the FPS genre.

      • Chris Mason

        Gasp… you mean to say that people who hailed CoD4 would be underwhelmed if its exact replica were brought back? Nonsense. The Ford Model-T, propeller aircraft and multi-mast sail ships would be just as popular now as they were when they first came out. /facetiousness

    • George

      People hated the fact that Treyarch remade MAPS in the DLC for Black Ops II. You really think they’re going to dish out another 60 bucks for a CoD4 remake?

  • Chris Mason

    Alright, real talk.

    I’m not a fan of Treyarch. Doesn’t mean I’m going to shit on anything they do. I like IW/Sledgehammer. Doesn’t mean I’m blind to problems in what they make. You “gamers” who feel the need to slam one dev or the other need to stop and think about the message you are sending. Are you guys really fans of this franchise? I like me some Destiny, Titanfall, Home front and Battlefield just as much as I enjoy CoD but I know I wont find a game that lives up to 100% of my expectations. Neither will you, most likely.

    What I enjoy and what you enjoy maybe be different in many ways, but the slamming of devs needs to be finished. Its an insult to people who work hard to try and create something that runs a treacherous ground of being well received by millions of different people with different ideas, expectations and assumptions of what they are going to get. Its not an easy job. And there is a crazy deadline run by a publisher who will (most likely) throw you out in a minute and find someone else if you can’t deliver.

    Pissed off at how these games are marketed? Quit buying them. Your money may not be missed, but if these games piss you off so badly, wouldn’t you feel better without having to deal with it? I would, if I hated CoD.

    I just think its time our behavior matches the ESRB rating for the game. M for Mature.

  • Epicsand

    The negative:
    This game being made by Sledgehammer could end up mediocre like MW3, and if we don’t buy it, Activision might make one of it’s other IP’s dominant, and CoD will be dormant.

    The positive:
    Sledgehammer might have learned from Infinity Ward and their mistakes, and CoD will be on a 3 year development cycle.

  • xupacabra

    Anything will be better than Ghosts.. At least I hope so.. Come on, IMPOSSIBRU for this franchise to fall even more… ;D

  • Mr codman1976

    I am now worried if Sledgehammer make mw4, I think it will kill the CoD franchise once and for all. Ghosts is good but so boring to play,I played Blops 2 yesterday it is so much better. I think the series needs to go back to basics W&W 2 with 3,5,7 kill streaks gun on gun action that’s what the series needs fun I am bored with lets be a pro cod player bullshit does anyone remember what its like to just have fun.

    • George

      If Ghosts was critiqued as a step backwards for the franchise, you can only imagine how people would respond to your idea being implemented.

      • Mr codman1976

        Yes you might be right, but the fact of the matter is the games have lost there fun and skill factor. guns with little to no recoil op shotguns with little skill needed to use them, op sniper rifles with quick reload. The game is getting to easy to play there for no excitement about staying alive and hitting the big killstreaks or ghosts case lack of any good killstreaks.

        • George

          It sounds more like you want CoD to be something that isn’t CoD entirely. Going back to WW2 isn’t going to change what CoD is.

            Nuff said

          • Chris Mason

            The Remington R5 (Ghosts) and the Colt CM901 (MW3) have different minimum damages (20/25) rates of fire (631/666), magazine sizes (24/30) recoil patterns and different damage drop offs.

            You do realize, also, that the R5 is statisicially superior in Ghosts, while the CM901 is the worst AR in MW3, right?

            The SC-2010 (Ghosts) and the “automatic” FAL (non-existent in MP MW2). Let’s see. I’ll pull the actual MW2 FAL for you. It does 55-35 damage, unless you have a Holographic on it, then it does 55-40. Fire rate is capped at 759rpm. 20 round Magazine. The SC-2010 does 35-20 damage, Holographic or not. Is a fully-automatic (by default) at 750rpm. 30 round magazine. Less recoil than the semi-auto FAL.

            The ARX-160 couldnt be any more different than the ACR. And the ACR in MW2 is slightly different than the ACR in MW3. The ARX-160 does 43-17 dmamage – making it the first AR in CoD history (that comes to mind) requiring 6 shots to kill at long range, shoots at 857 rpm and has both a recoil reducing feature built-in and the best hipfire spread of all ARs in Ghost. The MW2 ACR is 30-20 damage (meaning 5 shots max to kill), fires at 789 rpm, is classified as “extremely low” recoil on the wiki, and has average hipfire and no additional recoil compensation. The MW3 ACR 6.8 does 45-30 damage (meaning 4 shots maximum), fires at 705 rpm, and is a laser beam, especially with the kick proficiency. Having a great deal of experience with all three weapons in game, I can assure you that if you think these are reskinned guns, you’re wrong.

            Bizon and PP90M1. Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. But do you know why they are so similar? Because they are both Russian built SMGs. If you don’t know anything about Russian-built and engineered weapons, I’ll spare you the boring bits and just say imitation is a sincere form of flattery. Other than recoil (PP90M1 has less) and rate of fire (PP90M1 is faster), these two are fairly identical. Not unlike their real life counterparts, really.

            You’re really going to go with Mini-Uzi vs. CBJ-MS? I’d have gone PM-9 vs. Mini-Uzi vs. CBJ-MS. And even still, we have damage differentials, range differentials, rate of fire differentials, and all three have insane recoil. I’m not going to bother going into the precise differences because yes, all three of these guns are similar, but there is a difference between similarity – like the PP90M1/Bizon – and reskinned weapons. They are all statistically dissimilar.

            Wait, you’re seriously going to say that a SILENCED SMG [all caps for effect] is a reskin of a LOW RATE OF FIRE SHOTGUN? I want some of whatever it is you’re smoking. About the only thing these two weapons have in common is their effective range. For real.

            The fact you purposely just compared the Ameli and STG-44 shows me three things: 1) You didn’t pay attention to the fact I don’t own anymore Treyarch games, 2) You have no fucking clue what you’re talking about because the STG stands for Sturmgewehr, which means Assault Rifle, which is vastly different to an LMG like the Ameli [now if you said MG42 I'd be on the same wavelength] but even still, the Ameli is a real weapon used by the Spanish Military that is based of the MG42, and 3) You are a Treyarch fanboy because I could easily cry that Treyarch reskinned the FAL, KSG, MP5, etc. from IW and be all bitchy about it like you, but I’d rather not.

            Point is, the game is neither IW nor Treyarchs, so your comment about being pathetic shows you are just wanting to find any excuse to make IW look bad, They’re not. Trust me.

            Lynx has a higher ROF and doesn’t have a silencer penalty, AS-50 does. Other than that, both are low magazine-sized semi-automatic sniper rifles that are one-hit kill machines. Might as well compare every sniper rifle, at this point. They all do basically the same things. Treyarch or IW. Full stop.

            FP-6 vs. M1014? A pump shotgun vs a semi-auto? Ok. Statistically, the M1014 has better killing range and shoots faster than the FP-6. I don’t see how you’re calling most of these guns reskins.

            Tac-12 and KSG-12? KSG has more pellets, looks like slightly better range, with Damage it’s a monster. Tac-12 (among others) does something many other many had wished shotguns did before. Smart Choke. Tighten up the ADS spread of pellets. Otherwise the weapons look similar. Is that your point? Still not a reskin.

            Bulldog vs. Ranger. You must have hated being killed by shotguns. Bulldog is a completely different breed to the Ranger. Both shred your face up close, yes (like just about EVERY SHOTGUN IN EVERY GAME EVER) but the Ranger has a ridiculous DPS(hot) of up to 450 damage per pull of the trigger. And it fires very fast. Akimbo Rangers vs. Juggernaut Maniac would be no contest. It’d be a dead Maniac. Bulldog is less powerful, semi auto 6/9 shot, reloads fast (relatively speaking). These weapons aren’t even in the same league with each other.

            I’ll edit this post as time permits, but since your first example is utter bullshit, I think its fair to say the rest are too. Keep checking back.

            FINAL: There. I’ve addressed every weapon comparison you could manage to throw out. Hope you like reading.

      Treyarch reskinned three maps and brought it with DLC + some of guns in BO2 were in BO1.

    you guys do realise he said the next game was a black ops game then made the video private

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

    Whoever makes this years Cod just give one thing: at least 40 players lobbies with ghosts size-type maps and more weapons!!!!!

  • Tomas Brousson

    But maybe sledghammer is working with treyarch, like they did in mw3…

  • Treyarch fanboy

    I don’t know if I should be happy or sad. Happy that Treyarch has more time make an awesome game or sad because it will take one more year before we can play it.

  • HenryDF

    Some actual evidence that they’re making the game, and some evidence concerning how they’re making the game and what game it’s gonna be would be good.

    You’re judging some devs on a game they made cooperatively with IW – a game that had already had its main plot and main functionalitites laid out by IW.

    I’d understand it if people weren’t looking forward to the next IW game, but to be judging this already (before it’s even been announced) is pathetic in my opinion,

  • chris

    they helped they didn’t make it and mw3 mp was a lot better thaN BO2 mp

  • http://Youtube.com/user/lallyofthevalley Nemesis_96

    We’re assuming that Sledgehammer is going to make the next CoD, based on the evidence on this article.
    Besides, I’m saying that if Sledgehammer were to make the next CoD, it’s almost definitely going to be a mediocre pile of poop. Sledgehammer had way more than a sideline role in MW3 because IW was a mere skeleton crew after the whole West/ Zampella vs Activision incident.

  • Michael Atari

    It’s not pathetic and I’m not judging it’s just my personal estimate of what I think the game is going to turn out to be based on what they’ve produced before…

    There is no way after MW3 I’ll have high hopes for the next SledgeHammer COD. If they do make a good COD when the time comes, GREAT, but I have every right to doubt that it will be a good COD.

  • HenryDF

    That’s nice, but he has a wife and kids. Maybe go for someone who’s gay?

  • HenryDF

    Why would you say that? I mean, I’m not offended, just why that choice of words?

  • HenryDF

    “Treyarch has been the only reason CoD is still mega big since MW2″

    Ok. So that explains why MW3 and Ghosts have both been ridiculously successful, doesn’t it? Piss off with all your “Treyarch rules” bullshit, and face the facts before you start saying that IW is a failure.

  • Michael Atari

    Your missing the point. Every COD is successful we all know this already….

    The point is Treyarch is specifically more successful than IW/SHGames. Get it?

    Don’t get offended by this please it’s merely a fact. It’s by no means a shot at IW.

    I hope the next cod will be like a mix of mw2 and bo1

  • WIGRIPPER

    Ghosts is the worst COD ive ever played, its so bad ive started playin battlefield this year, if i wanna play COD I go back to my ps3 and play black ops 2, IW may have been the best but in my opinion Treyarch blow they away now….

  • TheShadowReaper

    HenryDF, calm down a little bit and think about it. lets not talk about revenue and commercial success since COD had both of these with its last 5 titles or so. instead lets talk about game quality.

    Infinity Ward and Treyarch have been the 2 developers behind COD and have been delivering a title every 2 years which lead to annual release of COD. lets take their games individually and see what happened quality wise…

    2007 – CoD 4: Modern Warfare – IW: i dont need to say much about this one since nearly everybody has played it and knows that its one of the FPS games that made the FPS both popular and also a genre by itself. amazing quality, bottom line: LEGENDARY.
    2008 – CoD: World at War – 3arc: a step back for many, although a solid WWII shooter, WaW didnt gave us the trill that COD4 did a year ago, but still a great game.
    2009 – CoD: Modern Warfare 2 – IW: now thats a painful one since i dont know how to address it…its both a good and a bad game, which is a hard thing to do. a lot of problems that never got patched cause of the West and Zampella incident. could have been better quality wise rather than this mediocre OMA fest that we got.
    2010 – CoD: Black Ops – 3arc: (best CoD to date imo) a solid title with a lot of additions to the franchise and while its a military shooter as the rest of them, its aesthetics is one of the things that many FPS games fail to get right even today. Cold War era ftw! quality wise: amazing.
    2011 – CoD: Modern Warfare 3 – IW: uhh…damnit. the results of the West and Zampella incident are seen in this game since a lot less people remained at IW after they left and their inexperience shows too. quality wise: throw PC or console out of window.
    2012 – CoD: Black Ops II – 3arc: after getting Black Ops i was expecting more from 3arc this time and i was let down as many others ofc. although this isnt a bad game like MW3, it could have been better for sure.
    2013 – CoD: Ghosts – IW: i thought that this new IW would have the time to think of a good concept and reddem themselves…i was SO fucking wrong. Ghosts isnt a bad game but i havent seen more of a copy and paste for any of the COD games than this one. while every COD feels unique, this one seems like MW3 dlc rather a new title.

    while IW has more titles under their belt i still prefer 3arc’s unique development style and more solid titles altogether. the only solid title we have seen from both new and old IW is COD4 and that was fucking 6 years ago! bringing sales numbers here doesnt count. most of the audience was dragged to MW3 cause they heard “MODERN WARFARE” and MW3 milked its way to the biggest entertainment launch of all time cause of the COD4 and MW2 success, not because it was a good game. not even close.

    2014 – CoD: Whatever Stupid Name they come up with – Sledgehammer or Treyarch? both are fine for me. who knows, maybe its SH this year and they manage to wow us, you never know. sry for the long post, but i needed to address this since a lot of IW fanboys talk smack about Treyarch when IW has given is one amazing title (COD4) and one good title (MW2) and nothing else worth noting of. have a good day Henry.

  • HenryDF

    MW3 was the biggest entertainment launch of all time, up until BO2 (which was then surpassed by GTA V).

    MW3 technically managed to surpass all existing Treyarch games at launch, and to this date has sold more copies than BO2. BO had sold around 25 million by the end of 2011, and I expect that’s gone up by around 2 million in the past year, effectively levelling it with MW3.

    I would go back further, but the sales get smaller and smaller and less up to date.

    This is just based on what I can find at the moment – is there any definitive sales figure list anywhere (where all titles have been verified up to a shared date)?

  • exeterman2

    They all want to make the most successful cod every year, no one dev wants it more or is favoured by ATVI

  • Josh

    Honestly, who cares, if sledgehammer make the next COD good for them it will bring a change from the almost “stale” concept to which CoD has developed. This could potentially help CoD to move in the right direction by bringing the fresh new ideas. We know they have the ability shown from their heavily involvement in MW3, so don’t be quick to judge OR complain about any other developers for that matter.

  • Josh

    He has deleted his comment from the embarrassment LOL silly boy!

  • SiftBlade

    Yet Ghosts is one of the few COD games to NOT outsell the previous COD game. That shows something.

  • Chris Mason

    That was Activision speaking through me. Glad you enjoyed it.

  • StraightEdgeAtheist

    Wooooooooooooooo!

  • Dave

    While I agree with everything you said, I think it’s important to keep in mind that a lot of the risk taking ideas that have stayed with the with the series has been on the IW side more so than with Treyarch. IW has implemented almost all of the killstreaks that exist today (in some form or another), along with Kill Confirmed, Specialist & Support packages (which despite the hate, there are plenty of players who find them great) and the new movement system in Ghosts – which I can see being taken onward.

    I think a lot of what paints Treyarch in a positive light is that they take the ideas that IW tried, and instead of innovate, they iterate and refine the jagged edges to polish it up for a more balanced play. Is balancing important? Of course it is, no doubt – Black Ops II is a very balanced game, and it shows – but nothing was truly innovative about the game. It could have taken the futuristic theme and taken it to 11 but instead it was just a glossy paint over of what we already know – killstreaks renamed with a “futuristic” approach…etc.

    I really do hope to see Treyarch try a more innovative approach to their next game with them having an extra year now. Despite IW taking arguably more risks, I think Treyarch could knock one out of the park if they would just take a chance at something truly different.

  • Chris Mason

    I make a wall of text explaining how IW doesn’t just reskin weapons and you reply with a video of some teenager with an inferiority complex ass pulling a bullshit cop out as to why they quit playing Ghosts?

    *slow clap*

    Thanks for robbing me of a few minutes of life I’ll never get back.

  • TheShadowReaper

    well while i agree that Treyarch takes a lot of ideas from IW they at least make them work. and yes they innovate too. the scorestreak system is the best system i have seen being used in a FPS game to date yet it wasnt continued in Ghosts. a lot of things that Treyarch does to make the game better and make it move onwards, IW takes it out and shits on us. and thats a thing i dont like. someone may say they dont want to steal ideas from Treyarch or vice versa, but if that was the case then why 3arc used KC as a game mode when it wasnt theirs? and thats why thats a shit argument. so its the lazyness of IW i have seen over the years that pissed me off and really lost my hope for the development team. also 3arc delivers us a great single player campaign story too while being very mature as a scenario and the good ol’ over the top COD campaign that we grew to love. while MW3 campaign was good, Ghosts was quite a letdown, with more cliches than i’ve ever seen. anyways, maybe 3arc doesnt innovate SO much but neither does IW. at least 3arc gives us the COD experience, innovation or not. IW cant do even that anymore. but i have to say i agree with you too for the most part.

  • john jacob jingle heimer shmig

    no innovation? umm the 10 point create-a-class system….anyone?

  • chief

    You didn’t play MW3 if you’re calling Ghosts the worst CoD.

  • James Cole

    Are you trolling? Mw3 multiplayer was the worst EVER. Accept maybe infected. Infected was alright sometimes.
