Infinity Ward Developing Call of Duty 6 for 2009

By Chris Faylor, Sep 15, 2008 2:45pm PDT Activision Publishing CEO Mike Griffith today confirmed that Call of Duty creator Infinity Ward, which most recently handled Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, will return to the franchise next year with Call of Duty 6.

"In 2009, we expect Infinity Ward to deliver another [entry of] ground-breaking quality, Call of Duty 6," Griffith stated at today's Activision Blizzard Analyst Day. Earlier this year, the CEO revealed that a new Call of Duty game would arrive in 2009, but did not offer any other details at the time.

Confusingly, Griffith's presentation today seemed to date CoD 6 for 2010 as well. After discussing Treyarch's Call of Duty: World at War, which he referred to as Call of Duty 5, the CEO said that "for calendar year 2010, Infinity Ward is already at work on the next installment in the franchise."

Following publisher Activision's "leapfrog strategy" of alternating developers, Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 6 will follow up Treyarch's Call of Duty: World at War, which launches on November 5 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS2, and Wii. Treyarch had also developed Call of Duty 3 as a part of that strategy.

  • Mr Glide,
    you're bitchin about a game taken place in the past, IT GETS OLD! pardon the pun, but seriously We have all of the Medal of Honor games, We now have 4 Call of duty games based on world war II! They need to find something new to make a damn game of if they want it to be in the past, Like the Korean or Vietnam wars, hell even some twist on the cold war but they refuse to, its the same old gayass setup, kill the Nazis. The futuristic games sell better anyways because, hate to break it to you. The majority of people are growing sick and tired of the same malevolent and tedious war that has sooooo many games about it already. So stop your little whiny infantile pissfit and grow a pair besides in your bra, if you want an old game, go play one of the many already made. The future is coming. You can't stop it pal, plus the future hasn't become a Cliche for a storyline yet.

    --- Respectfully,
