Its no secret that Activision has Call of Duty reveals and announcements perfected. Very few AAA games can gather the amount of excitement and hype behind a new product launch. Fortunately for us, it’s pretty easy to predict when Call of Duty news is coming because of their marketing formula. Our only worry this year is how Destiny might effect that formula, but if history repeats itself, we’re expecting Activision to reveal the new Call of Duty from Sledgehammer Games really really soon…
