During today’s conference call, Activision revealed that a new Call of Duty will be coming this year (surprise!). Following last year’s huge success with Modern Warfare 2, the company is not expecting the franchise to “hit 2009 highs.” Call of Duty is “not planned on repeating the same level of success on this year’s title,” clarified Activision’s Mike Griffith.
The game is rumored to release this November and take place in the Vietnam War. It will be developed by Treyarch.
Despite the lowered expectations, Activision is still “bullish” on both performance and quality for the title.
