Check out the first teaser image for the next Call of Duty (2014) currently in development by Sledgehammer Games.

This was the image that was flashed for a few seconds to audience members who attended the SHGames presentation at GDC a couple of weeks ago. No other info is known and there are no other images releases by Actvision yet but we’re guessing the reveal is going to happen really soon. We’ll keep you posted…

    Really really amazing, from a visual standpoint. But this is just one small screenshot. I hope to see it in motion with an official trailer or something in the coming months. 🙂

    • Wish Chaos

      Usually they reveal more during the NBA Finals, it’s been tradition for them. Same goes for E3 and Gamescom.

  • BUTWHYMOM

    oh boy a nose and mouth

  • Gince

    I hope that they created a new engine

    • Shardlotte

      God, you people keep saying that as if three years is enough time to make a brand new engine, AND create a game from the ground up on the engine.

      • Miguel

        exactly, I’m sure black ops 3 or whatever game treyarch is making will have a new engine since they had more time

        • Shardlotte

          …What? No, they still only have three years, probably less due to all the DLC they had to ramp out after BOII’s launch.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            All the DLC? Usually Treyarch has 2 years to create their next game, because it doesn’t take the entire team to create DLC, that’s mostly the designers. Their first year they spend most of the time brainstorming, thinking of features, etc. The next year, they start to build their game. With 3 years, they have one extra year to improve the engine as much as they can. I have high hopes. Also, we don’t know how long SH has been working on this, it could be 3 years as well, which means this game could be great. Let’s hope for the best.

          • Shardlotte

            Oh, I don’t disagree that they’ve had some time to improve the CoD engine. I’m just saying it’s unrealistic to think that either studio has had enough time to make an entirely new one.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            What are new engines if not improved older engines? Look at iPhones. The phones aren’t new, they’re upgraded. But people treat them like they’re new. So does gaming. Most games like BF, COD, Assassin’s Creed, basically any game series, never create new engines.

          • Shardlotte

            Yeah, I understand that. But tell that to the other guys who always say “new engine new engine!” every time a CoD is announced. When IW said that their new engine was just an upgraded version of the old one, people got pissy. You see what I’m trying to say here?

          • Chris Mason

            People are stupid assfaces.

          • nafnoid

            Treyarch presumably has even less time than that considering they had to make the Wii U port of Ghosts for IW.

          • Chris Mason

            Sincerely doubt the WiiU port team consists of a majority of the development team. To wit, if you have some strange autoimmune disease, your doctor will refer you to a neurologist or rheumatologist. The doctor will perform preliminary diagnostic before doing so, but then they move on to the next patient. They don’t see you all the way through your diagnostics with the specialists.

            Kinda works the same for porting, I’d wager.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Wii U port is a smaller team, it doesn’t take the whole team to port the game. And it shouldn’t take that long to port, so they lost a couple months max.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Frostbite, nuff said.

        • Chris Mason

          How’s that lawsuit?

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            What?

            *VERY IRRELEVANT EXAMPLE OF OUR CONVERSATION*
            NuttyTheSquirrel: Yes, I very much like the way the galaxy looks!
            Chris Mason: Ye, I like to eat cookies when I’m in the toilet, but when I’m sleeping I dream about cheese.

          • Chris Mason

            http://www.igameresponsibly.com/2013/12/18/ea-hit-class-action-lawsuit-battlefield-4/

            Yeah, how ’bout that Frostbite engine?

            edit: And how did you know I prefer to eat cookies while using the toilet? /mystified

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            You«re mixing everything up. First of all the lawsuit was for Battlefield 4, which runs on Frostbite 3, not Frostbite. Second of all, stop being such a fucking asshole. I was saying that Frostbite was made for Bad Company, which had a 20 month space between itself and the game before.

          • Chris Mason

            No, you said, “Frostbite, nuff said.” Best case scenario, that’s allowing a lot of room for interpretation of your intent. Worst case scenario, its pure trolling.

            Second, while I’m sure neither of us have built an engine (in gaming context, anyways), I’d bet its fair to say that, given the up-until-recently short development times between games, it wouldn’t be a viable strategy to build an engine while developing games. Why? Because, in the previously linked article, DICE was forced to halt development of any other games until BF4 was fixed.

            Third, say all you want about engines, but if the game that is built on them are utter rubbish (like BF4 was for months) then what good is a “new” engine? Maybe Activision wanted to wait until this new generation before tackling an engine? Maybe they won’t change it for a few more games? I can’t say either way. I just don’t know, but I do know this…

            ATVI/IW/3arc/etc. have never been sued like EA/Dice has been. 🙂

  • BigBadBryant

    Until they take time off to rebuild a new engine, the game will have the same recycled animations, no destructible environments, and minimal graphical improvements (at best) per release. I understand the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” idealism that Activision goes by, but they are not thinking long term. Just look at Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk. You can’t expect people to buy the same game forever

    • Jkice

      Ignorant…

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      It doesn’t need destructible environments… Yes, it needs better graphics and some NEW animations ASAP (the animations). But the last thing that it needs, is to have destructible environments.

  • YES! GUYS! WE GOT WHAT WE WANTED! THE NOSES ARE CONFIRMED! WOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Sal

    Should’ve released a group picture of the characters not just a close up of some guys nose. Based on CoD standards no body cares, graphs will be solid of course.

    When your first image is a close up; it reaks “ooo look at the pretty graphics/textures.” I’m not saying release gameplay but show something else besides some dudes nose/sweat.

    • Wraith

      That totally reminds me of those NBA and UFC games announcements. “Look at the shine off the sweat everyone!”

  • Shardlotte

    The Noses Are Real.

  • I’m very interested to see when and where this game takes place. This game is grabbing my attention much more than BO2 or Ghosts did. Very interesting.

    • See? The noses do it. Sledgehammer are onto something.

      • Luis

        I believe they’re leaving breadcrumbs and setting us up for a huge surprise. One that’s bigger than any of us imagined.

        • Wish Chaos

          I can only imagine what their seperate gamemode will be, cause in order to compete with Treyarch and IW, they need to come up with a new idea that isn’t the same concept of Zombies and Extinction, cause both are great gamemodes.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I just want SHGames to bring back Spec-Ops with 2-4/6 co-op depending on the mission.

          • Wish Chaos

            I wouldn’t mind that, as long as it’s not 2 players max…

    • Thats what happens every year

      • Мальчиков

        Not really..

    • Dr. Salim

      Don’t fall into their trap.

    • Shardlotte

      I think the attention-grabber this time is around is just the fact that it’s the first CoD to not be made primarily by IW or Treyarch. Who knows what SH has done with their CoD.

  • Michel

    Awesome instead of saying that fish swim away when you come close they can now say that people will run away if you’re nose is to big.

  • sweat

    Anal rectum probe

    • CoDforever

      Idk why i LOL’ed at that

  • Matuzz

    So, no new engine. Great.

    • Games only just been teased, not announced!

    • Chris Mason

      Dat positive attitude, tho.

    • Keshav Bhat

      u what m8. how do you know from a single image

      • Matuzz

        Well, just by looking at the textures and lighting, its quite obvious that its still the same engine. 😐

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Because I think that if they made a new engine. Activision would spread that like crazy.

  • Sentrymann

    Just please don’t take place during modern day.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      It will.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    Okay we can actually see a few things from this, none of which is confirmed. This game looks to be in modern times, or maybe somewhere between WW2 and now. Possibly future, but I doubt it. WW2 Helmets didn’t use those plastic buckles, they used a different type, as seen in an image below. However, more modern Helmets tend to have these plastic buttons. The only problem is, modern helmets have a lot more accessories on them than what this leaked image shows. Look at the helmet in the background of the leaked image. It’s plain, just like older helmets. Most newer helmets have better design and more gadgets, etc. Overall, it’s probably just going to be another modern game (MW4, most likely), but I’m just analyzing everything so you guys can form your own opinions about what you think time this game will be in.

    EDIT: Whoops, the image in the background is a beanie, not a helmet. So It’s basically confirmed that this is a modern game, because nobody really wore beanies in WW2.

      • CoDforever

        ahaa, back then everything used to be so jaggy

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Wow, you may be right, they look really similar. And if I remember correctly, wasn’t his story line left open ended after MW2? It’s been a while.

        • Luis

          You are right about the open ended storyline. Remember when Dunn talked about Moscow burning? Huge red flag should have popped up.

        • I’m so cool.

      • What if i told you,i dont know

      • Willekeurig persoon

        Bad news; Ali-A used your image for his video

        I wish you a speedy recovery..

        • Wish Chaos

          HAHAHA! YES! That would happen.

    • Dr. Salim

      Leroy Huxley from Cod 3 wore a beanie

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Oh yeah. Well, I’m pretty sure that beanies didn’t become popular among Americans until later, years after WW2. American soldiers typically didn’t wear them. However, I think beanies were popular with russian soldiers because, well, Russia is cold as shit, lol.

  • Smith N Wesson

    Just as long as the graphics do not still away the necessary power needed for good gameplay.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      steal*
      Most developers have a Engine team working just on the engine. I don’t know if the CoD devs have that, but if they do, gameplay would never be affected by visuals.

  • Michael

    To be honest, this looks pretty cool. This picture looks like the guy in the cod ghost teaser trailer. (Sorry about not pulling up an image of it, i dont know how to do it.) (If someone could tell me then ill post it and show you guys ???) First image of the next cod already. It’s that time of the month again guys. I’m exited to see what S.H. had got for us this year!!! ???

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      You can basically ignore the graphics because it won’t look like this in-game. Not only is this probably cinematic, but it’s a picture, not gameplay. So it looks 2x better than the cinematic, and the cinematic looks 2x better than the actual gameplay. Look at the Ghosts poster compared to the in-game characters. That’s how all video games do it nowadays. Also, you can add a picture by saving it to your computer, and uploading it with the button to the left of post, when you’re typing. Or just copy and paste the URL if you’re lazy.

      • Michael

        Yeah that is true. And yes I always do ignore the graphics cause it really doesn’t turn out to be the way you see it from looking at a picture. But also, can I screen shot a picture from my ipod touch and post the picture from my ipod on here or doesn’t have to be from an actual computer?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Ehh, depends if you’re using you’re ipod to post this. If not, you’d need to transfer your pictures from your ipod to your computer, and upload them from there.

          • Michael

            K thanks! ?

    • iiTZ PaVVn
      • Michael

        YAAAASSSSS!!! Lol ?. But yeah thats who I’m talking about. And yes I know he’s not from the teaser trailer, I’m pretty sure hes from the customization/ multiplayer sneak preview trailer months ago. He in the official reveal trailer. I mixed up the wrong trailer in that comment.

        • iiTZ PaVVn

          lol ik what you mean. He can be that guy from the first mission from MW2.

          • Michael

            I’m assuming your talking about sgt. Foley. Yeah I can see why you would say that. And plus he never died or anything like that in mw2, I think he was put aside or something like that.

          • iiTZ PaVVn

            I guess thats his name lol. I played that campaign but didnt really pay attention to the characters back then

          • Michael

            Oh ok

          • Wish Chaos

            It’s not Sgt. Foley to me. I always heard him as Kieth David

  • Sgt Foley anybody?

  • Bob Mit

    Watch out, Battlefield fanboys will make jokes about next gen noise hair now. while their game is unplayable. I just hope the game will be awesome.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      HA! It’s funny because that doesn’t happen to me anymore on BF4 since November/December.
      But it happens to me on Ghosts….

      And you never played Battlefield 4 did you? Because the game is more than playable now.

      • CoDforever

        Shutup you BF4 fanboy theres hundreds of people still raging online right now about how broken the game is.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          Yup, I’m totally a fanboy. I don’t even have CoD or anything.

          http://imgur.com/a/c0ouD

          • Mr Doge

            If you seem to be hating on CoD and if you SURELY love BF then why in the hell are you on this site?!

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          There’s hundreds of people online complaining about Ghosts as well. If you play on PC, you know what I’m talking about.

        • k1llsh0t16

          At least Battlefield is trying new things. Maybe they couldn’t make it all work before release. In my opinion, they should have waited a little longer to release it. But then people would be mad for the delay. COD, on the other hand, has been the same game since MW2, with a few gimmicks added on here and there.

          • CoDforever

            Lmao whats new in BF4? Levolution in bf4 was a gimmick

          • MichiganerE

            The same could be said about the dynamic events and customization in Ghosts.

          • CoDforever

            definately the dynamic events, but how the customization? I dont get how the customization in ghosts was a gimmick. Levolution in BF4 was a gimmick because in Siege of shangahi they showed that you collapse buildings when only 1 can be collapsed. The skyscraper collapsing somehow gave BF4 fanboys orgasms.

          • MichiganerE

            Customization wasn’t a big deal, that’s why. Just another way to get more people to buy the game.

      • ^DELUSIONAL^

        It’s not the game it’s the fact that your PC is fucking shit. Why are you even on this website if you don’t like call of duty

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          Yup, is it total shit.

          The i7 4770k and a gtx780ti suck right!

          EDIT: Who said I didn’t like CoD? Did I say that?
          I swear of god, this is the type of shit that makes me hate the community. You say you don’t like the game, you’re already hating on it. You naive people need to know that there is a BIG difference between “i don’t like X game” and “I hate X game”. And since I own every single CoD since 4, I don’t think I’m a fanboy either. MW3 is utter shit, and Ghosts isn’t far behind. Black Ops 2 could be better in terms of Multiplayer, the campaign’s story is amazingly good, while Ghosts story is all over the place and just doesn’t make any sense…

        • Ben

          Fact: CoD: Ghosts is bad on PC, the whole game is unoptimised.

          Kiddo, you really need to start reading some opinions about the game… almost everyone complains about Ghosts, it’s pure shit on PC. Activision selled ~half millon copies on PC, yet the peak is ~6k player in the evening when usually more people have time to play the game.

          Ridiculous, isn’t it?

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Black Ops II has more players playing it then Ghosts on PC.

      • Zarky

        Game is far from playable and this is coming from a level 104 guy….

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          Why are you on level 104? That just proves my point…

    • Tep Kok

      It’s funny because you think it was battleshit 4 fans laughing at you when it was literally the entire rest of the gaming industry laughing at the biggest shark jump since Happy Days.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        At least, I don’t have to pay for the shark.

    • Checkii

      as a guy whodoesnt even own an battlefield game, battlefield is an superior game to cod BUT i enjoy cods simple play style.

    • Here’s a 83th like for you.

  • Bob Mit

    I still like blue eyes better, but brown eyes are okay.

  • The cod beast

    This guy is facing the same way as the guy in the ghosts front cover. Really dude are you really gonna copy their character position. Graphics look amazing. I have very high hopes for this game.

    • Keshav Bhat

      This isn’t a box art or anything like that…this is just a character in-game engine

      • Mitch

        I can already see it becoming the box art now LOL

    • Jim

      Graphics look amazing? That’s not graphics – that’s just a promo picture. Ghosts had the same garbage and look at how bad that was visually even on PC ultra

  • Patrik

    Carl on Duty: Black Cops

  • Frontaldevildog

    That guy kind of looks like sergeant foley from mw2

  • I’m not going to get overly hyped up with just a small leak of this.

    Literally black ops?

  • pompomtheruler

      Where have you seen the weather?

  • Gui

    Sgt Foley?

  • Luis

    Is that Sgt. Foley? Hurray for going back to the MW2 campaign

  • CodGuy1

    Forget This Call of Duty Play This Call of Duty United Offensive the best call of Duty of all time the new ones are shit !!!!! What happend to when you can go freely on the map and get on a jeep or a tank forget the new killstreaks they are crap !!!

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      If you want Tanks and Jeeps, play Planetside, ArmA or Battlefield. CoD DOES NOT NEED VEHICLES!
      And NO, United Offensive was FAR from been the best CoD game.

  • Epicsand

    I’m excited to see more about next CoD, but in my opinion, the shading on this character’s face looks slightly stretched and pixelated. This picture looks like it was taken from Ghosts. I hope it is not official/final, or other things in the game were taking up so much processing power that the face could not rendered with more detail.

  • tobi xw

    look evryone you all have your opinions on the next cod game….(THIS ONE RIGHT HERE)…rather its good or bad i will say this.. i am a cod fanboy however,because of how cod ghosts broke my heart lol….i am not looking forward for this game or any cod games for that matter it actually makes me sad to say this…lol this sounds gay….lol…but anyway there will never ever be a game..a cod… a fps like black ops one…..and after blops one cod has faild to meet my expectations….. i do evry thing cod has to offer…i trickshot,i pubstomp,feed,i do game battles,i play the single player to perfection on veteran,im a zombies freek,i love to troll people,im one of the best extinction players in the world(SOLO)..but what im trying to say without bragging is ive come a long way in cod and i can clearly see that its going to shit..not to say its dying but it reached its climax and,i hope im wrong about this but i dont see this franchise rising up even with the next gen hardware 3 year devolopment cycle and the extra studio(SLEGE HAMER)but i hope it does,because i wont give up on this franchise…even if the greatest game of all times is coming out(KINGDOM HEARTS 3)#THE BEST EVER#SO BEAST#LET ME STOP….so yeah if u read this whole thing u have no life..lol

  • Looks good except for the eyes IMO.

  • What ever happened to frost in mw3? He wasn’t in the mission where sandman,truck, and grinch died. Maybe he will be in cod 2014 and will play a big role?

  • Dylan DuGirls

    I wish they would hurry up with the reveal. Ghosts is good and everything but I’m itching to know what’s next

  • Bartram

    I love all cods but just can not play ghosts I don’t know what they where thinking when they made it.. Maps 2 big feels like hardcore mode kill streaks are the worst and the list goes on November can’t come quick enough to play cod again

  • Ben

    The face details looks promising (I doubt they switched the engine), it could be a truly nextgen game but I don’t expect anything breakthrough from them (in terms of gameplay and map design) after MW3.

  • rmp1596

    Is it just me or does that look like price in the background?

  • No one have seen new Call of Duty game coming…

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      Everyone has seen a new CoD game coming. I see the next CoD games coming in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, and so on.

  • Thirst

    I heard that sledgehammer has been working on the game since mw3 and a little before that so this game better be good im starting to get tired of ghosts.

  • probably a real life picture lol tina

  • xkingxnitemare

    Theres no way character models will look this good on either console. PC maybe. But I wouldnt bother getting hyped. Gonna be the same washed out grey garbage they been putting out for years now

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      Have you ever played Battlefield 4 on the current-gen (PS4/XBONE)? The characters look amazing on there, so they would actually be able to make someone look like that.
