It sure hasn't been long since we got a Call of Duty game, and already Activision is ready to release another. During a post-earnings financial call, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed that they have plans to release a new entry before the year is up. Of course, Activision doesn't expect this new game to perform quite as well as their most recent entry, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which broke sales records.
"The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect the new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher," said Hirshberg. "There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal years in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012."
Who will be developing this unnamed Call of Duty title? That hasn't been announced yet, but it will probably be one of the five developers involved with the franchise: Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Raven Software, Sledgehammer Games, and Neversoft Entertainment.
