Activision spoke at a conference call talking about the companies record setting revenue in 2012. During the call Activision announced a new Call of Duty which is planned to be released during the fourth quarter 2013.
“The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect the new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher,” said Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg.
“There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal years in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012,” said Activision CFO Dennis Durkin.
Current rumors put the release of the next generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles during the Holiday period this year. Also the next Call of Duty title is rumored to be Modern Warfare 4.
