Activision adds third developer to Call of Duty rotation

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Going forward, the Call of Duty franchise will belong to three developers, Activision has revealed. The series already yo-yos between Treyarch and Infinity Ward, but now Sledgehammer Games has been given Call of Duty development responsibilities as well.

“For the first time, this year’s Call of Duty game, and future Call of Duty games, are being built on a three year development cycle,” Activision revealed. “There are several advantages to doing this, the first is of course quality. This will give our designers more time to envision and to innovate.”

Sledgehammer Games has been quietly tinkering away on their own Call of Duty game, which is yet to be revealed, but will be released later this year. The developer has previously aided in the development of CoD titles like Modern Warfare 3. Seeing as Infinity Ward developed last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, we’ll likely only see them again in 2016. Next year will be Treyarch’s turn to release a CoD.

    Gosh. So they are still going to release one every year? I’m actually so bored of it. People used to joke about Call of Duty 20. Looks like we’ll get there in no time :)

    Splitting between multiplayer and single player would be nice, although current sales gives them no reason too…
    But it would be great to explore the potential of the gadgets, rather than playing with them for such a short time, and having more freedom and options available
    Then have a multiplayer game that lasts 3 years instead of one, might be great for competitive play, and value for money…
