During Activision Blizzard’s fourth quarter financial conference call, the publisher confirmed the developer for the upcoming Call of Duty game.
According to the company’s prepared remarks, the next chapter of the saga coming this year (in Q4, which means between October and December as usual)) will be developed by Treyarch, which is the studio behind the Black Ops series. We also heard that Activision “can’t wait to share more” during future conference calls.
The latest Call of Duty game developed by Treyarch was Call of Duty: Black Ops III in 2015. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can enjoy our review. It wasn’t perfect, but it was definitely good.
Treyarch also worked on Call of Duty Black Ops in 2010 and Black Ops II in 2012, alongside helping with the ports of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Ghosts.
This means that Activision is sticking with the three-year development cycle that sees Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Treyarch alternating at the helm of the Call of Duty franchise.
