Activision has confirmed that the next installment in the Call of Duty
series will be set in an entirely new military theatre and that Treyarch is currently working on a new James Bond game.
The news, which came in a conference call to Eurogamer
, co-incides with the announcement of Acitivision's 2.9 Billion USD profit this year.
According to Activision the new Call of Duty
will be released on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and DS, just like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- though PlayStation 2 and Wii versions are also planned this time around.
Activision would not confirm if the game was being developed by Treyarch or Infinity Ward, but did say that Treyarch is currently using the Call of Duty 4
engine to make a new James Bond tie-in game for the new Quantum of Solace
film due out this year.
"We'll bring the intensity of the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title to a new military theatre, to engage our significantly larger user base which nearly doubled last year as new users came into the franchise,
" said Activision CEO Mike Griffith.
