Activision: New Call Of Duty, Skylanders Titles For 2014
Bet you didn't expect this. Oh...you did? You must be clairvoyant or something.
Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed during a recent earnings call that a new Call of Duty game will launch in 2014. Likely November again.
Kotick also said that the next Skylanders installment will arrive next year as well, and he said there's a "major new potential franchise with Bungie's Destiny." Of course, we don't have any details about the new CoD just yet, but franchise executive producer Mark Rubin said that a space setting isn't out of the realm of possibility. That might not be a bad thing, either, because they definitely need to reinvent this IP.
As I said in my review of the freshly released Call of Duty: Ghosts, there comes a time when you have to acknowledge the age and encroaching staleness of a great series. And there's no doubt that CoD has been great...it just isn't quite "great" anymore.
