Treyarch Beefing Up Staff For Future Call Of Duty

Believe it or not, another Call of Duty game might be in the works. Yeah, seriously.

As noted by GamerZines, Treyarch is beefing up for the next CoD project. Job listings at the developer's website all but confirm it.

Some of the listings ask applicants to be experts on "recent First Person Shooters," and one says the new employee will be cranking on "combat systems (such as weapons and attachments) and gameplay mechanics (such as Perks and spawning)." One ad for a Gameplay Combat Designer makes the situation even clearer; he will report "to the Design Director for the Call of Duty multiplayer team at Treyarch." "Call of Duty" is mentioned all over the place, obviously.

And nobody is really surprised. Treyarch boss Mark Lamia has said the team is a "100% Call of Duty studio," and given history, it's their turn. Infinity Ward just delivered Modern Warfare 3, Treyarch's Black Ops dropped in late 2010, so...yeah, the cycle continues.

Unless they plan to release a CoD game twice a year or somehow lost a lot of staff members recently... this sounds like they're probably beefin' up for a next-next-gen CoD.

Considering how the production costs will go up on the technical level. And how games will need to look visually better.

You could be right, especially with the rumors of PS4 coming out in 2012 or 2013.

Aren't people sick of this yet? A game JUST releases and then boom the next one is in the news and being cranked out. I'd get sick of any series that did that really fast.

This is just becoming sickening..There is truly no need to produce a new CoD every single year. Make a bad ass CoD like the original MW was and let gamers enjoy it for at least 2 years..

O.o Project Iron Wolf is a new CoD. Not surprised by that. What does surprise me is that the source article was written on the 29th of March. Sorry, I'll go away now.

i honestly do not give a damn. chances are treyarch is going to take mw3's multiplayer formula and tweak it ever so slightly so it seems like its new and calling it theirs like they've been doing since call of duty 4.
until they do something original and make a quality product, count me out for this one.

Well at least they're not sitting back on their laurels. Hiring new talent is the sign of a healthy studio. Here's hoping they can come up with something just as innovative as their wager matches.

As long as my main account for multiplayer doesn't get f***** up like it did with the MW games. Still retail for COD is a joke and their other bulls***.

treyarch make an inferior product for the PS3 - there isnt much to choose between the MW versions on PS3 and Xbox - but Blops was clearly better on the Xbox - really annoying

I thought Black Ops worked pretty well on PS3, MW3 on the other hand for me still has lingering issues.
