New Call of Duty confirmed for next year
Activision announced that a new Call of Duty game will be released next year, given the massive success the company has already enjoyed with Modern Warfare 3
Activision has confirmed that a new Call of Duty game will be released in 2012. The announcement was made as part of a quarterly earnings report that also stated that the recently launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 boasted the largest day-one shipments in gaming history.
"As we focus on 2012, we have a strong product pipeline which features a minimum of two highly-anticipated new titles from Blizzard Entertainment, including Diablo III, and a new Call of Duty game from Activision Publishing," Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said in a statement attached to the company's quarterly report.
No other information was made available regarding the successor to Modern Warfare 3, though it is reasonable to assume that the game will begin a new story arc.
Modern Warfare 3 offers first person shooter (FPS) gameplay and is a direct sequel to 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It is also the eighth title in the Call of Duty series. Modern Warfare 3 can be had via both digital download and retail channels and is a multiplatform release.
The game was launched in the UAE on November 7. Super retailer Carrefour ran midnight launch events at its stores in Dubai's Mall of the Emirates and Abu Dhabi's Marina Mall.
