Future Setting, High-Tech Gadgetry Teased For Call Of Duty

This year's Call of Duty will be revealed on May 1, so the rumors and speculation will soon stop (thankfully).

But in the meantime, the most recent theory is that the new entry - which many assume to be Black Ops 2 - will be set in the not-too-distant future.

If you check the franchise's official site, you will find that it links you to the YouTube video below. It's kinda funny but it also focuses on a the high-tech flying quadrotor RC drone weapon, which might make an appearance in the new CoD. It's a prototype weapon that is controlled remotely and capable of firing on enemies with a mounted machine gun; an operator controls the unit with a tablet, which also gives him a bird's-eye view of the landscape.

There's no knowing the specifics until next week, but that isn't too far off, right? Personally, I don't care much about the setting and futuristic stuff...I just really want a new engine.

Too bad he's not actually Russian though. FPS Russia is his alias he uses now, used to be FPS Kyle played a lot of CoD games.

Yeah i really dont understand all the hate towards that (im not implying you do. how can i know that for a fact?)...sure hes acting with a stereotyped russian accent but we must admit he hit a *very* deep gold mine with that and came a looong way since his fpskyle days...
How big hes has gotten? well lets just say what he gets payed in a month is what a person in the minorities gets payed in a year.(white lie)
And also he recently tweeted about his new Beast custom gaming rig. said he had trouble running windows on it so he'll instead will play 'BO2' in his old rig...my question is how big must you be to be able to have access to game that is days away from being announced and yet also it being months away from release?

Some people do yes, but I'm not saying that to hate, I know you aren't saying I am or anything but, he's even admitted it in a podcast he does, I knew it since he made the account, because people I know knew as well.

Almost anyone can do an accent and make it seem like you are actually what you are trying to portray, especially my friend Will, he does a really good Irish accent and you wouldn't be able to tell if he was joking or not. I'm just letting people know though, I don't really care if FPS Russia is a fake though, I still watch his videos because it's entertaining.

That weaponized flying drone is super bad-a$$.

I honestly would take dedicated servers over a new engine anyday. True the engine is of age but its still a good looking game. The sound effects can be refined but the lag and glitches gotta go. Every other multiplayer in the market currently uses dedicated servers. Activision needs to stop being cheap. The millions upon millions of fans deserve it.

Yea cod needs dedicated servers bad, it disconnects every time a 10year old kid gets his arse handed to him and he quits,or everytime their is an error, wich is pretty much 24/7.

Oh please oh please give me something futury, Treyarch would be my fave if they stopped with the historical stuff (Especially Veitnam hated black ops for glorifying the American invasion over there). But seriously Black Ops had the no quick scope cheapness. (Yeah I call it cheap cuz it uses that stupid aim assist). And I hope they get rid of aim assist altogether or at least have the option to turn it off in the multiplayer options menu.

Yip Ben... we await a new engine. I guess Frostbyte 3 will have pushed the bar once again leaving Call of Duty further behind again this year, if they don't do something about it...

Q!

that item isnt stealthy enough for recon, but I guess in the game they'll tone down the propeller noise
