We’re shocked! A new Call of Duty game will be announced on May 1st, according to the franchise’s official website. It’s no surprise, but is the new logo design pointing towards what many gamers have been asking for? Is Call of Duty finally getting some kind of upgrade?
The rumors are saying it’s Black Ops 2, but Activision might have had different plans all along, plans we’ll finally get to know more about on the aforesaid date.
But here’s what I’ve always said, Activision has been waiting long years to upgrade the Call of Duty engine, and I don’t believe the firm’s taken so long to do this because it doesn’t care about the franchise, on the contrary, Call of Duty IS Activision. Say what you please, but Activision has some of the most business savvy people workking on its IPs everyday. So much so that every other publisher wants to follow the firm’s lead. Take EA or example, the owner of Battlefield and countless other IPs, the company’s blatantly admitted that Activision’s strategy is working, and that they may follow what the competition has successfully done.
I believe Activision has been working on a new engine and new upgrades for Call of Duty for a very long time, but has been waiting on the new consoles, or waiting to know their specs before forging it. I’m not sure if the new Call of Duty will be the game to boast all the changes but if not this time around, it’ll definitely be next year. Either ways, I’m betting on the COD franchise over any other.
