UK, December 3, 2007 - Activision Blizzard has confirmed that Call of Duty 5 and Guitar Hero 4 are both in development just hours after news of the company's merger hit the wire. And while the news is unlikely to come as a shock, if Activision Blizzard's recent boasts are anything to go by we could see both of the series reaching bigger and better heights.

 

Indeed, during a conference call held today Activision CEO Robert Kotick and Jean-Benard Levy spoke of the company's huge projected success and hinted that many of Activision's franchise could learn a lot from the success of World of Warcraft, which has 9.3 million users across the world. More specifically, Kotick expressed a distinct interest in the subscription model employed by the WoW developer, although quite how it will work with Activision's other franchises - including a new racing title from the freshly-acquired Bizarre Creations - remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, World of Warcraft won't be coming to console any time soon, with Levy categorically stating that a current-gen version of the game was most certainly not in the works.

In a press release posted along with the call, the combined company outlined some of the pipelined games that the Activision side of Activision Blizzard will be contributing to the mnerger and releasing in the near future. (Vivendi/Sierra/Blizzard of course have Starcraft II as well as several other titles in production.) Included in the list are:

  • Guitar Hero IV
  • Call of Duty 5
  • James Bond (2008)
  • Tony Hawk (new - 10th franchise entry)
  • New Dreamworks Titles (various franchises)
  • New Marvel Titles (various franchises)
  • Bizarre Creations' New Entry in Racing (following September 2007 acquisition)

Joining in on the chaos of today's Activision/Blizzard/Vivendi merger announcement, the company "Activision Blizzard" announced the continuation of both the Call of Duty and Guitar Hero franchises; no big surprise. In a conference call held today Activision CEO Robert Kotick and Jean-Bernard Levy spoke on the continuation of the two franchises, and of course the potential for success banking off the sheer power of the World of Warcraft series as well. While the continuation of both franchises is of course great - and expected - news for the multi-console owner, questions already arise as to the specifics of the confirmation. In short, will we be seeing an actual Call of Duty 5 on Wii this time around, or is that one still up for debate?

Unfortunately, today's announcements seem to be crazy enough without IGN getting its grimy hands on new information, as Activision Blizzard was unable to comment, leaving us only their token PR response of "We can offer no further comment..." and the cheerful optimism that comes with the merger of gigantic, powerhouse companies. Call of Duty 5 is on the way, yes, but it sounds like that's about all we'll know for quite a while. The good news: These franchises aren't going anywhere. The bad news: The waiting game on more information has now begun.

As for what we know from both Call of Duty and its competitors, no publisher has committed their top franchise to Wii as of yet outside of Call of Duty 3 during the Wii's launch, as we saw no Call of Duty 4, had both Medal of Honor: Vanguard (Wii and PS2) rather than Airborne earlier this year, Medal of Honor Heroes 2 just a month or so back - a great game, but a spin-off series as far as the official MoH cannon goes - and almost nothing on the Band of Brothers side of things from Ubisoft aside from a few shots of an updated Road to Hill 30 Wii-make. Which FPS will step up and bring the primary SKU (or at least official multi-console effort) to Wii first? We'll just have to wait and see.

How did you get that from that? The Wii's absolutely poo-poo for high-end games and I highly doubt a COD will port over to it that nicely

either way seems we'll have to wait for future news, although I imagine a modern warfare sequel is quite likely

I agree, it sucks how they are giving it to the Wii. Come on, that is low.

Stick with what you know. The CoD series is undoubtably one of Activision's greatest franchises, so it makes sense for them to announce that they are gonna release another game in the series.
I wouldn't expect it to be out for at least another year anyway. Look how long it took for CoD4 to come out after CoD2. (CoD3 doesn't count [tongue])

I overall don't understand how some people think playing FPS games on consoles is fun. Especially the Wii.
