I should just create a template that gets updated once per year, you know?

Activision’s second quarter earnings call landed on the same day as the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, where it confirmed what we already knew: another Call of Duty will arrive 2012.

If Activision continues its swapped studio development cycle, it’ll be Treyarch up to bat next fall, presumably with a sequel to Black Ops. Whether that bit is true or not hasn’t been announced yet.

Treyarch has been hiring for engineers to bring its “hugely successful game to a new console.” Wii U, anyone?

Modern Warfare 3 is expected to be another massive hit for Activision, predicted to sell as many as nine million copies today.

Surprise!

Seems like every year, the same talk floats around the enthusiast press about how much longer this can last, then every year the damn thing sells more than the last. Activision doesn't have a compelling reason not to crank out another one.

let's not pretend we didn't expect this. They're gonna keep making these long after we're all dead. Modern Warfare IN SPACE, anyone?

Treyarch should totally go back to making Spider Man games.

Seriously, if they had taken what they did right with Spider Man 2 and fixed what they did wrong, we would have an excellent Spider Man game on our hands. But no, they had to go off making the crappier versions of CoD. Not that World At War was bad, but the rest of their campaigns have just been so-so.

EDIT: Nevermind, they did, and we got Ultimate Spider Man and Spider Man 3. Neither of which I played.

Think of CoD like a childs playground within a place you love.

It keeps annoying people away, it's not all bad.

Hooray! I can keep making my last purchase in the franchise obsolete, even though I only play the multiplayer!

... That's what I would say if I still played these games, at least.

I love how everyone hates this series now. It's not enough to ignore it, you have to actively hate it.

Huh, this along with that Assassins Creed announcement give me a feeling of Deja Vu. Not that I have any real problem with these games, considering that I don't play either of them, but it feels a little weird that this might make it 3 years in a row where towards the end of the year there is a new Call of Duty and a new Assassins Creed. (That is, assuming that these come out during the end of next year)

For the fans of these series, wouldn't this be a case of "too much of a good thing"?

I'm just wondering what Activision is going to do once these games stop selling like they have been. I think it's peaked with MW3 and it's all just downhill from here.

The assassins creed announcment really didnt upset me as much as another call of duty. I LOVE story based epics in games. The same trite multiplayer in call of duty however gets old and the story isnt very great.

I never saw this one coming. That said, I'm willing to bet that Black Ops will be the peak (in terms of sales) for the franchise.
