During a conference call; Activision has announced that Sledgehammer Games will be developing their own Call of Duty game, which will give Infinity Ward and Treyarch a longer production time.
In the past; Infinity Ward and Treyarch had only a two year cycle to develop their Call of Duty game while Sledgehammer Games assisted with the multiplayer features. The new rotation set-up is expected to give the developers more time to experiment with new gameplay features.
Mike Futter, News Editor for Game Informer, has stated, "Giving the Call of Duty teams an extended development cycle is great news for the franchise. That much time will allow additional experimentation and creativity that will help create greater distinction from year to year."
Gamers are also optimistic that the new rotation will improve the quality of the series for the new generation consoles. Many are hoping that this move will prevent another disappointing game like Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Some have a little doubt that the new rotation will bring a fresh perspective to the series. These gamers see this as an opportunity for Activision to churn more of the same Call of Duty games.
According to Futter, Activision listed three branches of the franchise being Modern Warfare, Black Ops, and Ghosts. This has lead to speculation that Sledgehammer games will be developing a new Modern Warfare title.
