Next Call Of Duty Game Developed By Sledgehammer Games

The last two editions of Call Of Duty have been developed by Infinity Ward and both Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops have managed to break sales records.

Over the past number of years, the Call Of Duty series has had Treyarch developing the odd numbered installments with Infinity Ward doing the even numbered ones. It was between Call Of Duty 4 and 6 that things really kicked off for the franchise and the popular Modern Warfare sub-series developed. Technically speaking the next series of Call Of Duty will be 8, which would see Infinity Ward doing the game.

But due to disputes between Infinity Ward and Activision, it doesn’t look like they will be this year. Earlier this year some legal issues sparked up between the two. Infinity Ward wanted a bigger cut of the massive amount of money that Activision were rolling in, but they were having none of it. Since then, the two founders, Jason West and Vince Zampella, have left the company.

This could mean that Infinity Ward are out of the series, or it could mean they’re taking an extra year to work on a future title, since it’s a bit of a tight schedule churning out one title each year. Rumor has it they are going to work during 2011 on a prequel to Modern Warfare.

So what’s  next in the Call Of Duty series is beyond me, but it looks like it will be developed by Sledgehamer which means that it could be a completely new edition to the series all together. We’ll just have to wait and see, one things for certain, it’s got a lot to live up to.

    Bob you retard, Infinity ward started the call of duty franchise, they involved treyarch into making odd number games in the series, 3,5 and 7. Cod3, WaW, and Black Ops. So, essentially infinity ward started call of duty and are now being cut out of it.
