Call of Duty 2013 will “raise the bar even higher”

Activision promises that the next Call of Duty will up the ante

Activision has said that the next instalment in the Call of Duty franchise will improve upon the standard set by Black Ops 2.

The news came during an Activision financials conference call, where CFO Dennis Durkin spoke about the company’s ambitions for the FPS series.

“The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect a new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher,” said Durkin.

Durkin also added that the game will fulfil the expected release period of previous Call of Duty games, but did mention that given the state of the market, the forecast will be slightly lower than usual.

“There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal uses in the cycle,” added Durkin. “For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the main line release in Q4 to be down versus 2012.”

Given the trend of Call of Duty games, the next instalment should be developed by Infinity Ward, and should fall into the Modern Warfare story arc.
