Activision is beefing up the Call of Duty brand

Now they have people who were formerly with Visceral Games forming a new studio that will head up future Call of Duty games that will be "action-adventure" releases.

RE: Activision is beefing up the Call of Duty brand

I wonder if this has anything to do with the firings of lead developers for Modern Warfare 2?

RE: Activision is beefing up the Call of Duty brand

I saw the stories about the security trouble and whatnot as well. It seems to be unrelated, since in that case those two employees were under investigation for misconduct, or some such thing.

At least that's what they want the public to believe.

A third Modern Warfare looks to be on its way

The L.A. Times is reporting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the next Call of Duty due this fall, being developed by three different teams. One is whoever's left at Infinity Ward working together with Sledgehammer Games to bring the single-player portion out, while Raven Software (the team who did last year's Singularity title) will handle the multiplayer portion.

Although, none of this has been officially confirmed by Activision yet.

Call of Duty goes to the Beach

Activision has opened up yet another portal to Call of Duty: a massive online shop. That's what it sounds like anyway, a digital-download service tied into Call of Duty games where you can guess the purpose would be downloading supplies of different items related to the games (which is being modeled after Valve's Steam engine).

This is all being handled by a new development team called Beachhead.

RE: A third Modern Warfare looks to be on its way

Still no confirmation from Activision... but if leakings from multiple sources prove to be accurate, the next Call of Duty will indeed be the third Modern Warfare. Being developed by the three teams mentioned, this game will launch on November 8th this year, which picks up where the last story left off. Inlcuded with the game will be the Spec Ops mode as well as a new "survival" mode, which is supposedly modeled after the zombie maps in the other editions of Call of Duty.

Is it neat to be a part of Call of Duty Elite?

The way of the future for Call of Duty is that Activision's setting up a subscription service for the franchise, starting this Fall. With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 you'll have the option to pay $50 a year in order to get all incoming map packs (valued at $60) for $10 less. This "Elite" service also gives members the chance to possibly win prizes like iPods and a Jeep, as well as extra storage space for all the videos you'll be posting of your crazy Call of Duty kills.

Does this sound like a sweet deal?

Is Tony Hawk gearing up for war?

Neversoft seems to be in the process of hiring people for a first-person shooter. What the project is isn't announced, but this might hint at a future in Call of Duty(given that Neversoft has outlived their previous franchises).
