It appears Call of Duty may finally shed its aging engine. If so, Black Ops 2 will be the last game to use the IW engine, which has its roots in id Tech 3. Based on the resume of an Infinity Ward engineer, Activision's other Call of Duty studio is working on a "new high-end DX11 code base."

The resume of Andrew Aye shows work on an "unannounced title" due for PS3, Xbox 360, PC DX11, and "TBA." Given that the current slate of consoles cannot run DirectX 11, it seems likely that "TBA" represents an upcoming next-gen console.

Kotaku points out that the next Call of Duty game may see a multi-generation release, a la Call of Duty 2 where "current-gen versions are ported down from their cutting-edge counterparts."

        Infinity Ward has been pretty gutted of the original staff from what I understand.

        You're probably looking for Respawn Entertainment's new project.

      Awesome DX11 \m/ love it, see guys, I told you the DX11 storm is coming hardcore. You just wait the next two years are gonna be sick, that Dawn demo is going to be pimping real time.

      All whats left is new IPs, ideas, refined old ideas, physic in gameplay where environment matters, etc and we will all be in gaming heaven.

      UE4, UE3.5, Cry3, SQuare ENix, Fox, Frostbite 2, MT Framework 2, Metro's engine, Ubisofts, and the others I forgot to mention are all here or coming, its going to be slick graphically that's for sure.

        I think it's more like:

        Activision Officer: "New consoles will support DX11, we need to make a DX11 engine!"

        Marketing: "We're making a DX11 engine! See PC guys, we love you too! <3!"

        Brotick: $$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!!
