Activision has already confirmed that a new Call of Duty title is in the works. [MW4Blog article] Activision’s Community Manager Dan Amrich (A.K.A. One Of Swords) offered up information regarding the next entry in the Modern Warfare series. Mr. Amrich uploaded a video to answer user questions about the next Call of Duty title, or “Modern Warfare 4.”
Mr. Amrich took the opportunity to sell Call of Duty: Black Ops II in the video with the recently released “Revolution,” Personalization Packs, and the recently released “Uprising.” He also said there’s more DLC to come after Uprising. But he did offer these re-assurances:
– Typically, and historically, Call of Duty reveals are in May.
– Just be patient. Info is coming “very soon.”
– If you’re looking for info on MW4, it’s a bit too early to do so.
– Info should be coming out just before E3, or at E3.
Amrich is right, but sometimes, reveals are in April, too. For example, with Black Ops, the first info came out precisely on April 30th. [Wikipedia] And Black Ops II’s info came starting April 9th, into April 28th. [Wikipedia] Whereas, MW4 follows the Modern Warfare reveals timeline. MW2 for example was teased during GDC, and then revealed on May 10th. [Wikipedia] MW3’s marketing was a little different. There was a massive leak on May 13th, then into the Conference Finals on the 23rd of May. [Wikipedia] And nobody believed the leaks until the trailer(s) were released.
