There’s been a ton of buzz surrounding a new Call of Duty title over the past few weeks. Fueled by many rumours and the fact that this is usually the time of year when Activision announces their yearly CoD offering, it’s hard to stumble across gaming’s corner of the web without seeing it.
Activision themselves dumped more gasoline on the fire yesterday when they released their Q1 earnings report for FY2011. In the report, they made a very brief mention of a “robust investment in forthcoming Call of Duty titles, including a micro-transaction game for China.”
I was sincerely hoping that when Activision finally spoke about a new Call of Duty it would actually answer some questions instead of just raising more. But yet, here we are, asking away.
Why is this specific to China?
Which platforms will it be available on?
Why mention this in an investor call instead of giving it an official announcement beforehand?
Is this the CoD title that’s coming this year or are there two of them?
Is Beachhead behind this title or are they working on another CoD game?
You’re guess is as good as mine about all of the unanswered questions they’ve left us with. Fortunately, with E3 only a few weeks away, everything asked above will likely come out at that time… we hope.
