This week Sony Computer Entertainment held the behind-closed-doors Destination PlayStation event in Scottsdale, Arizona, where publishers showcased their upcoming line-up to representatives and buyers from retailers.
The event is said to have included titles that haven’t even been shown to the press, and one of them was the next Call of Duty by Sledgehammer Games scheduled for release this Fall. Unfortunately the non disclosure agreement seems to be almost steel-clad, but Twitter user Lokiolr relayed what he was told by his boss about the upcoming COD title:
Kind of jealous, my boss and our buyer are at DPS (Destination PlayStation) this week, a retail sneak peak event.
Got the rundown from my boss on some Destination Playstation stuff. New Call Of Duty sounds awesome.
One scene he described took place on the Golden Gate bridge. He couldn’t remember the game’s subtitle but he thinks it was “Black Smith”.
Said it looks really realistic with great physics. I’m guessing the “Black Smith” title is the internal name. Like Titan was for Black Ops 2
Also it’s the next entry in the Modern Warfare series apparently. I wish I had gone, I would have retained the info better.
He also mentioned a little snippet of information on what we can expect in the near future from Rockstar Games:
Rockstar had something amazing to show but bailed at the last minute. Expect an E3 announcement from them this year. Likely GTA V on nextgen
Of course, since this is second hand information, we should definitely take it with a grain of salt, but it’s quite interesting none the less. We’ll have to wait and see if the next Call of Duty game will manage to impress us unlike Call of Duty: Ghosts.
