Next Call Of Duty? Expected in 2017

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been a success for the teams at developer Treyarch and publisher Activision, but the focus of the companies is already shifting towards the future installments in the franchise, which will apparently deliver an experience based on the most significant fan feedback coming from the community.

Glen Schofield, one of the co-founders and the current leader of Sledgehammer Games, explains on his official Twitter account that he is stoked to be working on the new first-person shooter and wants to make sure that the player base knows it.

The developer also shares that he is doing a lot of work on his art to deal with the pressure of designing a new video game but has not offered any details about the kind of features that the next Call of Duty will offer.

Scholfield makes it clear that he cannot talk about the project directly and will probably be unable to offer more than hints about it for more than one full year.

Sledgehammer Games were the developers of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which was launched in 2015, a title that was better received than the previous Ghosts installment.

It's unclear whether they are planning to create a full sequel or whether Activision is looking to introduce a new structure for the entire series, focusing on individual releases rather than on narrative continuity.

Given that there are now three core studios working on the franchise at the moment, they will be in charge of delivering a new installment in 2017.

Infinity Ward is the company handling the Call of Duty video game that's slated to arrive in November of 2016, but an official unveiling for it will take place at some point during the spring of next year.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will get four major DLC packs

Glen Schofield might be stoked about the future of the series and about the design work he is doing, but the fan base is focused on the delivery of the coming downloadable content that will keep the current installment interesting during next year.

Treyarch and Activision have promised the traditional four deliveries, which will include four new maps each, more weapons for gamers to use and, potentially, some extra Specialists to enhance the number of choices players have.

It's unclear whether there are also plans to introduce new undead story content for the Shadows of Evil campaign.

Balance-focused patches are also planned for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, designed to keep the various modes as competitive in the long run as possible.

The first one was offered on the PC, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One recently and eliminated some glitches while improving stability and connectivity.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has managed to become the biggest entertainment launch of the year and generated more than 550 million dollars (480 million Euro) of sales during its release day, although it will probably have to relinquish that title when Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives.
