This year’s Call of Duty to bring ‘meaningful genre innovations’

That Activision will release yet another Call of Duty this year will come as no surprise. But would you raise an eyebrow if they were to say that they were working on “meaningful innovations” for this year’s game?

That’s what they say.

The company is “laser-focused on raising the bar with this year’s new Call of Duty,” it was said on the company’s earnings call yesterday.

“This year we expect to further expand our presence with the launch of an all-new epic first-person shooter title under the Call of Duty brand. From what we’ve seen to date, the game already looks fantastic and will bring meaningful innovations to the franchise.”

This year’s game is rumored to be Black Ops 2, coming once more from Treyarch. Nothing official yet, of course; it’s still Modern Warfare 3‘s turn.
