Well, it looks like we have an official announcement regarding which team will head development for the next Call of Duty game for this upcoming Fall season, despite the storm of chaos over the past week. As most have probably speculated, the company that will develop the next Call of Duty title (the seventh in the series) will be none other than Treyarch. Additionally, despite the fact that most people were already aware, Infinity Ward is still working on the first downloadable map pack for Modern Warfare 2.
In a release to investors, the Activision/Blizzard team states:
The company expects to release a new Call of Duty game from Treyarch this fall. In addition, Infinity Ward is in development on the first two downloadable map packs for Modern Warfare(R) 2 for release in 2010.
There hasn’t been any word yet on exactly what time period this next Call of Duty will be set it, or what war will be featured for that matter, but let’s just hope that Treyarch can manage to step their game up, as they’re essentially always outdone by their Infinity Ward counterparts. C’mon guys, let’s see something epic!
