The LA Times have reported that Activision has put together a collaborative effort by Sledgehammer Games, Raven Software and (what’s left of) Infinity Ward to deliver Modern Warfare 3 by the end of this year.
Now… at this point, posting news about a new Call of Duty game being announced is like posting news that the sun will probably come up tomorrow. No official announcement has been made just yet but you can be sure that we will start hearing more about it sometime after Activision performs daylight robbery with their new Black Ops map pack.
Would it be wrong of me at this point to request that we actually get a new game engine, considering that the current one is already 4 games old. Or on the other hand they could always just release a game that’s 90% similar with minor tweaks and then proceed to overcharge for even more map packs just like they did with the last three.
Let’s hope that the new companies bring something new to the table this time around.
