Treyarch is developing the 2015 version of Call of Duty, and it will be released this fall, CEO of Activision Publishing Eric Hirshberg confirmed today during an earnings call.
Treyarch created Call of Duty’s zombie mode, which became ubiquitous. Its series games include Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. The latter two games “remain the biggest-selling titles in franchise history,” Hirshberg said.
“This fall’s game will be Treyarch’s first on the three-year development cycle,” he said. “It will be loaded with innovation, and we’re excited to share more details with our community soon.”
In the equivalent quarterly earnings call in February 2014, Hirshberg announced that Call of Duty was moving to a three-year, three-developer strategy. That included a new Call of Duty studio, Sledgehammer Games, who created 2014’s futuristic Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
