Fresh from the huge success of their 2014 edition of "Call of Duty" titled "Advanced Warfare," publisher Activision previously announced that the next COD series will be released this fall and that the studio who will handle the development will be Treyarch.
"We have Treyarch developing the game. We'll have a larger installed base of next-gen hardware to sell into, and we believe our Q4 new release can be one of our best games yet. So we think the future is bright," Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said.
Treyarch is the house that brought the top selling "Black Ops" series as well as the 2008 hit "World at War." Activision, however, didn't reveal if the studio will continue on Black Ops 3 or World at War. Some even say that it could be a different game altogether. more >>
