Sony: Call Of Duty Vita Set For Fall, Will Make A Big Splash
Plenty of established franchises from third-party publishers are heading to the PlayStation Vita. One of them is the industry-leading Call of Duty.
Sony had mentioned before that the mega-blockbuster series would be portable-bound, but they never provided us with an estimated launch window. Well, it's apparently the same as the new CoD that's in development for consoles and likely slated to release towards the end of the year. If we were to guess, we'd say November.
A reader has pointed us in the direction of a Vita launch interview at GameTrailers, in which senior vice-president of PlayStation brand marketing, Guy Longworth, confirmed that Call of Duty for the Vita is in development and is set to launch this fall. He didn't provide any other specifics but that's enough for now, right?
Interestingly enough, Longworth calls this title an "absolute game-changer" for the Vita, although we're not entirely sure why. Presumably, he's just talking about the legion of CoD fans out there who might be intrigued, and therefore run out to buy Sony's handheld. Then again, maybe he means it'll be quite the amazing FPS...in the meantime, shooter fans can look forward to Resistance: Burning Skies and Killzone.
