Gameinformer has just announced that the next Call of Duty by Sledgehammer Games will grace the cover of their next issue. They’ve also promised a bunch of new info on the next CoD this Sunday at 10:00am PT which is around the time the trailer should go live. Stay tuned…

We’ve known for a few months that Sledgehammer Games will be taking over the reins for this year’s Call of Duty entry, and our next cover story features twelve pages of exclusive and extensive details. We visited the studio, spoke with co-founders Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey, and are ready to tell you everything we know.

To time the issue’s release with the first trailer for the game, we will be releasing this issue three days early for our digital subscribers.

This Sunday at 12:00 PM Central time (10:00 AM Pacific) we will reveal the cover image and the first details on the game including the name, so please come back this weekend to see the cover and the game in action for the first time. We will release the digital issue shortly afterwards.

In the mean time, we have this in-game screen shot that has many hints about the next Call of Duty (and of course puts many of the rumors to bed).

See you Sunday.

            i guess so

          • Playstation 4

            It is simply the power of next-gen consoles. I just rendered the image to look this amazing just like it would on a PC. Don’t you underestimate me. I can deliver much more than you think “Big guy”! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • TheShadowReaper

            the image is just an image though. doesnt matter if u render it on a PS4, PC or your toaster. until i see fluid in real time footage this image means nothing, absolutely nothing.

          • Grenada!

            I’m with you man, they showed decent graphics for ghosts but when they should actual gameplay, it was shit and the graphics for ghosts is shit now. It happens with most games so don’t think I’m just picking on CoD.

        • OH Just SHUT THE FUCK UP… Can you ever make an image that realistic. Have you ever seen what it takes to make a game, I doubt it.

          • TheShadowReaper

            why, do you? you shut the fuck up instead. its just a screenshot with medium textures and medium overall quality. but i doubt you know what these are, right? also another thing, can you tell if its good from just one screenshot? the amazing eye, go apply for the Justice League you piece of shit.

          • BFTitan

            This retard should be banned from this site.

          • MEDIUM TEXTURES? Hell you talk like you can do better… lets see what you got… post an original game that you made, not something from the internet.

            As for your question on whether I know what a texture is then yes I do. Basically a texture is a type of “material” used to give the graphic more depth and better appearance. Like on the guy in the graphics sleeve.

            Also, yes… I know a slight bit about how these games are made. It takes 1000’s of hours for games of this scale. To start every map has to be designed, along with the idea for the game. Then characters are developed. Next the characters and other models are made in a program like Cinema 4d. Then the models are put together inside the map. The point of view and other cameras inserted. Make the animation of Reloading etc. Combined with other elements in game. Scripting, testing, and patching. Then the game servers need to be made and managed. Lastly the game releases. That is just a quick little explanation that doesn’t include a few other things.

            Now comeback when you have your amazing HIGH QUALITY game made.

          • TheShadowReaper

            so i cant judge a game when comparing to its opposition and other better graphical games because i never made a game? really? and btw i know all that bullshit you listed, i’m into gaming nearly 2 decades now. but when you see a product you can easily compare it to opposition and critique it based on that. yes the textures are medium but we just learned that all these leaks and the trailer that came is from XboxOne. probably looks better on PS4 and ofc PC. raging fanboy. you suck ass.

          • Poplur33

            If it was next gen it wouldn’t have textures

          • 111AlaN111

            It could be a cinematic. And I want to see gameplay, an image tells me almost nothing. I love COD since BO2, but I also am smart enough to know that an image doesn’t tell me if the gameplay will be good.

        • George

          I’ve yet to see you post a positive comment, and people are getting fed up with your negativity towards a game that isn’t even bad and now a new game that hasn’t even been revealed.

          • fires

            I kinda dont like his shit either, but the man has a point, For all we know, its just something hyped up for show, they do that shit alot for games, and until i see it in 60fps in that quality, take that as maybe at most, a cutscene. Id love to be proven wrong though.

        • Grenada!

          Agreed, I’m pretty sure there are screenshots of MW2 with similar graphics to this and these won’t be what the game looks like, it happens with every game out there.

        • BFTitan

          I don’t know what your agenda is or how good is your vision but if the image is from an in game footage, then the graphics for this game can certainly quialify as next gen.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’m sorry to crush your dreams but i play on the PC and i see better graphics and screens than this every day. i never said that its bad, but it seems people hear what they want to hear when they want to hear it. i said that it isnt anything special since i see way better things every day. use your brains people, its not to hard to do so.

          • Mr Doge

            Seriously in all honestly what is your problem? I’m not gonna hate on you or anything but you seem to hate everything that is related to CoD. What does it tell us? Well it tells us that it isn’t in the past like people were speculating. It tells us that the game could be set in a time beyond Bo2. Why are you so butthurt over everything. Take a chill pill lil’ boy.

          • TheShadowReaper

            but i’m not, i love COD. and you do, you indeed hate on me, else why comment “take a chill pill lil’ boy” right at my face? do you even know what hate is? i should ask what is YOUR problem? i dont care what the image means or shows, its just not anything impressive. i never said that its bad but you get butthurt over it because hype? is your brain even working at this point?

          • stfuShadow

            These comments are so absurd and hilarious. You all are immature dipshits, stop hating on an opinion and let the guy deal with this as he pleases. With that said, ShadowReaper is being very egotistical; he thinks he’s better than everyone since he plays a PC and he doesn’t understand that this picture has come with more information including: another distorted picture that has been pretty much confirmed to show Kevin Spacely as the voice for the new villain and the fact that on May 4 we get to see the first look at this game. ShadowReaper, we are excited because this picture says that the setting is in the future and we are excited because we get to see a video (I hear you love those) in only 3 days. Finally, you are obviously not as mature as you make yourself if you’re wasting your time with the people you’ve been replying to because to me they appear as little children; they’re comments are so poorly thought out, so just ignore them and go on with your life, please.

          • TheShadowReaper

            good for you. i’ll instead keep my excitement (or disappointment) for the next 3 days until the reveal happens and we have actual pieces of information about the game. ACTUAL information! not an image that shows nothing. i’m not egotistical at all mind you, i’m just mature and i’m not impressed by anything like little kids are, but i guess thats pretty much 70% or more of the COD fanbase! i’m sorry, i tend to forget that.

        • Anon

          Why is there so much hate on this when he just stated that people are going crazy over just a picture. It just shows his opinion on the article. No need to go nuts over him because you think his opinion is wrong.

          • TheShadowReaper

            pretty much my point. i dont know why so many people are getting butthurt over this. i never stated that its bad yet i’m being attacked all the time. i guess the hype is huge and its here. but the hype doesnt get me anymore, i guess i have matured a little as a COD gamer unlike some people on this site.

        • Zheiapdvof

          Name one game that looks batter

          • TheShadowReaper

            wait seriously? it that the game you wanna play cause its really easy for me to play i assure you. i never said its bad, but there are ore than a dozen games that look better than this. and more than half of them are PC exclusives mind you.

      • 111AlaN111

        It may be a cinematic.

    • HenryDF

      One interesting thing – the image name is “BlacksmithACTUALFULLSIZE” – maybe the word “Blacksmith” is more than just a working title?

      • Celest1ne

        I think that is the name Charlie Intel gave it when the uploaded it. However there has been speculation for a while that it is more than the code name.

        • HenryDF

          It’s the same name on the Gameinformer site too, I checked.

          • Celest1ne

            Not sure then. I mean if they just saved the file it would stay the same, maybe gameinformer named it that? Like I said though the rumors seem to indicate it’s more than just a code name.

      • Tayler Hammond

        It’s codenamed Blacksmith because it’s being made by Sledgehammer.
        Blacksmiths use sledghammers to forge weapons.

        • Curt Davey

          cen i haz sweg 2?

    • Michael Condrey confirmed it’s an in-game screenshot!

      https://twitter.com/MichaelCondrey/status/461922422514786304

      • Grenada!

        Take that as a pinch of salt though, he’s making the game so he’s going to say anything to praise it or make it appeal to others. Also most people think I’m just hating but here’s the thing. Every year people get really hyped for the new CoD game and then it turns out to be shit to them. I’m just telling people to not get too excited because going by the past few CoD games, it has a high chance that it will suck. However this is SG and they are new to the CoD franchise so there is still hope.

    • Space

      Be careful you don’t ejaculate in your pants!

  • LUL.

    inb4 people think these are next gen consoles graphics, LOL.
    these are PCmasterRace graphics with max settings.

    • CoDforever

      even with pc maxed graphics cod didnt look impressive before, but look now!

    • Mitch

      Knowing CoD’s previous support for PC, PS4/XB1 will look like the PC version.

      • LUL.

        cod 4 with mods looks better than ghosts on x1.
        bo2 looks amazing on pc with max settings.
        dont say stupid shit

        • Mitch

          BO2 on PC and consoles looks pretty much identical.

        • Wraith

          OH WAIT! Ghosts looks better on next-gen consoles than PC for most players. Why? Because IW doesn’t give a damn about decent PC optimization. Sledgehammer better learn from that horrendous mistake.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        It doesn’t.

    • Sal

      Get your ass back to /r/gaming :v

      • LUL.

        r/gaming is full of console players lol

    • Cell

      Playing CoD on PC sucks… it lags like hell and we can’t find players! What is it good if it has awesome graphics if u can’t play some game modes, like Ground War, Blitz, etc… U can only play TDM and sometimes Domination.

      • LUL.

        ‘what does it have to do with what I said

        • Cell

          U said “PCMasterRace”… and I stated my opinion about CoD on PC.

    The textures ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Wow hope that cod will be good

  • Batman

    This puts BF4 and Frostbite on shame

    • No it doesn’t. BF will always remain superior to CoD.

      • CoDforever

        Dude, fuck you and gtfo

        • Why would you want to do that? That’s gross. You’re supposed to do that to girls not guys.

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe he’s a homosexual?

          • Who know’s maybe?

      • dat guy

        he is saying what BF4 said in the back of the game box…

      • ^^^^^^Dumb ass above me^^^^^

        BF logic is just as retarded as CoD logic “Tank is on fire pull out torch fix with more fire” “Takes RPG to the face, one shock from defib brings back to life” seems superior to me.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          I don’t even…

        • The server is always lagging and the spawning system is a lot horrible in CoD Ghost. BF4 it’s a lot more fun where you can play 32v32 on a huge map. Who doesn’t want to play with land, air, and sea vehicles? Apparently CoD does.

          • TheShadowReaper

            if only you could actually launch the game then yes. but apparently the issues with BF4 dont stop there, its a shitty FPS game. but i wont go further in detail. this is a COD website so i’ll talk about COD, not BF.

          • How can you say it’s shitty when maybe you haven’t played it? It’s actually a smooth FPS game that will surpass CoD.

          • TheShadowReaper

            buahahahahaha! what? xD “a smooth FPS game that will surpass CoD” are words to describe the clusterfuck that is called BF4? xD my god…thanks for the laugh dude… x)

          • This tells me you haven’t played BF4. When you’ve played BF4 you’ll realize how CoD Ghost sucks.

          • TheShadowReaper

            BF4 is a joke. i have played the beta and i have to say i’m thankful…cause the beta was running better than the full product! xD i own BF3 and the difference is just a number. no difference whatsoever between the 2. both were broken with BF4 being a little more broken than BF3 and both are really bad FPS games. thats it. if COD suck or not, leave it to me to call that, you havent played Ghosts you BF fanboy you simply arent allowed to talk about it.

          • Mr Doge

            Someone who sees BF the same way I do. All my friends love that game. It’s like CoD, no difference between installments. The server lag is probably just as bad as Bo2 and they had P2P connection. How is it amazing? People now pull parachutes 1 meter off the ground and take no damage or dying from a defibrillator? SOOOO realistic? Megaladon? SOOOO realistic. Thats how it feels for your game to be hated on.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i’m really sorry about your game but i tend to cry in a corner about it too. i loved BF games until BF3 came out and made the franchise shit.

          • I actually have played Ghosts and I own the previous CoD’s too. In my honest opinion it’s the worst CoD by far in the franchise. I started getting interested in BF3 once I got bored with Black ops 2. I started playing a lot of BF3 and I really liked it.

            I’m still very impressed with BF4 and I’m glad I bought it but I should have bought BF4 sooner rather than buying CoD Ghost. BF4 runs fine. Plus I only just got into BF4. I’m not a high level in BF4. So I’m not really a fanboy.

          • I have played Ghosts because I own it. It’s very disappointing to me and I realized that I wasted my money on it and should have tried it out first before I bought it.

          • TheShadowReaper

            then you are misfortunate enough to have played the worst game in the franchise. instead play COD4, BO1, MW2, BO2. these 4 are really great. and it seems that we are getting another great one this year with AW.

          • I own all of the other previous CoD’s. I agree that CoD4, BO1, MW2, MW3, and BO2 are great. I have yet to see if AW is any good. I’m still not going to keep my hopes up.

          • TheShadowReaper

            i have my hopes up because its SH but my excitement level is pretty low right now. still waiting to get wowed at something patiently.

          • I’m just waiting for multiplayer and the trophies for this game and I’ll decide whether I will get it or not.

          • BFTitan

            I played BF4 on Xbox one, and I can say honestly, any COD on Xbox360 is way smoother than BF4 on Xbox one.

          • You have yet to play BF4 on the PS4. Where the graphics are 1080p, and everything is smooth. Xbox One has only 920p and it doesn’t really compare to the 1080p that the PS4 has.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          Oh, and I can’t revive players that were killed on an explosion. It’s called gameplay. Would you like to what, call in a cargo heli to come and get your tank in some extraction point so that you could then go to your base/Destroyer so that you could spend 10 hours fixing your tank? Fucking idiot people man. Battlefield is authentic while trying not to sacrife gameplay. Of course that some choices that DICE made sacrificed gameplay (f.e. Revolvers having a delay when you shoot then because “They have a delay IRL”). Games don’t have to have our logic to be fun. When we play games, we’re trying to escape reality, wether you’re bored, or had a shitty day, you’re trying to get some fun by playing something that is considered out of the ordinary IRL. If I drove 1-2hours from work to my house, I wouldn’t me spending my time playing a city driving simulator, I would be playing something that “doesn’t occur” as much in my/our life. You should really try to stop that fanboyism bullshit and start expanding your mind and start seeing games for their good, and but only for their bad.

          Sure Battlefield 4 had a really bad launch, sure it took a long time before the game was considered playable (it’s more than just “playable” now). Ghosts launch was perfect either, that least on PC, it crashed to my desktop, FRAPS and DxTory weren’t supported (I think DxTory still makes the game crash when you launch the game), SLI/Crossfire wasn’t supported, it’s one of the most unoptimized games I’ve ever played, lacks support from the developers, I could even say it’s kinda non-existant. It still has some game-breaking problems in the game, etc. I still play it from time to time. I play Black Ops II, which is probably the best PC version from CoD games.

          I don’t enjoy CoD games like I enjoyed CoD4/MW2/Black Ops because you could kill faster there and the game wasn’t so balanced that every gun felt the same. I remember that I could stend an entire day playing those games, but now I can’t, if I play more than 3 rounds without leaving the game, that’s already good enough. It’s more of the same and it lacks variety. Don’t get me wrong, CoD still has good games, but I just don’t see them as good CALL OF DUTY games. And that’s another thing. You ask yourself this to see if the game’s really good or not. “Would it survive, if it didn’t have the franchise’s title?” Battlefield 4 most likely wouldn’t, Ghosts wouldn’t.

      • PuddingAuxRais1ns

        Atleast CoD is a polished and working shooter. This is coming from a mostly BF fan BTW.

        • “Atleast CoD is a polished and working shooter”

          LOL no it’s not! If they polished the game the spawns would have been better in this game. It’s horrific! It’s literally an arcade and it’s so easy to play it. It doesn’t even take skill.

      • Cell

        Expecting insane butthurt from BF boys…

        • I’m not really butthurt. The screenshot looks like it was taken on PC. I’m still keeping my hopes down anyway because it’s the same thing every single year and it gets old. It just needs to stop.

          • Cell

            Infinity Ward made a pretty big shit with Ghosts… I’m hoping SledgeHammer made a nice game this time.

          • JohnyGPTSOAD

            “made a pretty big shit”? Its the worst thing that ever happened to pc gaming. That game doesnt even work on my rig. Unoptimized game, boring and dumb campaign with a stupid ass ending, and a generic (as in CoD generic) multiplayer. More of the same. Just with aliens, michael myers and predators.

          • Cell

            I’m sorry for my english dude… lol…. =) And I have to agree with you. I’m just waiting for a new and good CoD.

          • JohnyGPTSOAD

            I said “made a pretty big shit” in quotes because it was an understatement.

          • Yeah, I do too but we’ll just have to wait and see what they do.

          • Cell

            And this will take so long… =)

          • Yeah, I know. I’m just going to wait for the MP reveal tbh. If it doesn’t look good than forgot SHgames and IW. Going with Treyarch

          • Guest

            Everyone says that every single year… “Sledgehammer and IW sucked making MW3 lets up Treyarch does good next year”… “Black ops II sucked, lets hope IW does better”… “Ghosts sucks lets see if Sledgehammer can make a good game”… its the same thing every year but yet they sell millions of copies and everyone plays them and complains… then continues playing LOL people are stupid.

          • Guest

            Hah.. that should’ve said “lets hope Treyarch…”

          • Guest

            Then why are you here reading an article about the next COD if its the same thing every single year and its getting old and needs to stop?

          • Because I can be here. Nobody said I couldn’t be here, now did they?

      • Duke of hazard

        In terms of being broken? Yes, yes it will.

      • gippers

        Yea BF4 was the worst video game launch ever. EA even sold a lot of its stock because it knew that BF4 would hurt its stock value after its nightmare release and they’re actually being sued for it. COD still outsells BF and will even be a part of the X-Games. What do you have to show for BF other than graphics? This new generation thinks games are measured by their graphics when they are really measured by the amount of fun you have while playing it.

        • It’s actually a lot more fun than CoD. I love riding in jets, helicopters, boats, and other vehicles. CoD doesn’t have any vehicles at all. It’s a lot more fun when you have vehicle warfare instead of always running and gunning everywhere in CoD because overtime it gets very boring.

          Also BF4 has a better connection and it runs really smoothly compared to CoD. CoD is laggy and what ever happened to dedicated servers? They lied. BF4 is very smooth and I don’t know why people play such a horrible game like Ghosts.

          • speakingthetruth

            in your opinion*

          • Wraith

            Imma use Counter Strike as an example. I like Counter Strike and it seems a lot of people do too. You don’t have to get super complex to be good. These games are fun, just in a different way. You people make it sound like your favored game is the only decent game on the planet.

      • BFTitan

        Really? How come BF is still behind COD in money making and player numbers? You say the game itself? Did you play BF4 and how it pissed the most loyal BF players? Anyway, that is your opinion but your opinion is not shared by many more.

        Well at least have some faith man ๐Ÿ™‚ Wait for the gameplay and then make your judgement. I dont care if BF4 has better graphics,but for Cod as you said these graphics look amazing,if we have a decent gameplay too it could be one of the best Cod’s.

        • JohnyGPTSOAD

          I must admit im interested. The best CoD for me was MW2 but i dont know if it will surpass the standards set by it. MW2 felt like a breath of fresh air but since then the games havent been “inovative” enough.

          • kyr95

            Youre right, i personally thought Bo2 was a great game, well see how this goes,but i must admit too that this cod has captured my curiosity ๐Ÿ™‚

        • TheShadowReaper

          thats what we were saying 1 year ago for Ghosts. just saying.

          • kyr95

            I wasnt saying it, lol ๐Ÿ˜€

          • gippers

            Yea, I definitely didn’t say that either. I actually figured it would be garbage since the real Infinity Ward was canned right after MW2. This is Sledgehammer’s first COD title that they developed on their own. It is ok for some of us to have some wishful thinking. We get that you think it could be garbage just like the rest, so move along already.

          • Mr Doge

            He’s wrong and right. He’s wrong in the sense it will probably be good but right as in people will find everything bad about the game throw shit at it like this year. I like Ghosts but I don’t want this to happen to Sledgehammer.

  • I’m still not going to get my hopes up yet.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I can’t see how this game will be worse than Ghosts. Battlefield will die before CoD. #ThisSunday

    • CoDforever

      But you always defended ghosts .. lol

      • jordanxbrookes

        I do because I like Ghosts, but to compare Ghosts to other CoDs, it’s quite terrible.

  • Drillz

    Looks good, just hope there wont be an instant death in MP. Please do us proud Sledgehammer.

  • CoDforever

    All we can say is this is going to be a very long 3 days!

  • ………..

    That’s bad only have like 2 pics of the game and already looks wayyyyyyyyyy better than Ghosts, lets just hope the reveal isn’t just guys putting on masks

  • CoDforever

    Looking at the image, its kinda confirmed to be futuristic

  • Guys this is great i hope they don’t let us down i love the hype right now!!

  • TheMostManlyMan

    But you guys are all aware of what those graphics mean right? The usual “We had to drastically cut down on map size and game mechanics to fit in these awesome new graphics, it was the obvious decision” crap. So you guys go and get excited about another failed Call of Duty game and waist $60 while I recall how bad MW3 (partially Sledgehammer games) BO2 and the demo I played of Ghosties are.

    And so none of you call BF fanboy or antifanboy, I’m not, I love Battlefield, but I think. I used to love Call of Duty, but then MW3 happened and I was one of the few players who thought, and that’s why I hated it. I didn’t hate it because of a lack of differences from other games, I hated it because the maps, guns and spawns were awful beyong reason (not BO2 awful for maps, but still awful). So have fun wasting your money and calling antifanboy on me, because you’ll be feeling the same way I do after it comes out, I hope I eat my words and that this game is awesome because CoD used to be my favorite franchise, but they’ll have to prove that they still have life in them before I spend another cent on them.

    • HenryDF

      I don’t see any evidence behind your point about the “usual cut down of map size” – that’s never happened with CoD?

      The maps in Ghosts were huge, and the graphics were the best we’ve seen, and yet the only “disk space” issue was current-gen consoles not being able to handle 9v9.

      • TheMostManlyMan

        I’m aware that Ghosties had large maps, however the spawns did make up for that by giving the illusion that they were tiny. Yes, Ghosties had bigger maps, but MW3 and BO2 were huge downsizes from their predecessors (no pun intended).

        ~Manly

        • HenryDF

          Your point is still invalid…

      • feelfree97

        On top of which, this is built from the ground up on next-gen consoles and last time i checked it both the PS4 and Xbox One could had Battlefield 4’s 64 player multiplayer. Sure it was 900p on PS4 and 720p on Xbox One but i think we should wait until gameplay or at least a bit more than just a screenshot before making judgements ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Yo, calm down with the negativity. We know nothing about the game. For all we new this could be CoD’s saving Grace.

      • TheMostManlyMan

        Sorry, but I can’t, especially when I reminisce about the good times I had with BO1 and MW2, the astounding drop in quality was infuriating (though in MW3’s case it’s kinda understandable since they did lose the people who made Infinity Ward Infinity Ward.

        • Exactly. Black Ops 2 was a step forward, but I have to agree they have less than desirable net code. But with time, we learn. And I’ve learned to not trust IW Anymore. They’ve turned really shady, and I don’t really wanna be a part of them.

          • But SH, was responsible for the story I believe.

          • TheMostManlyMan

            I have to disagree wholeheartedly with that (except the distrust of IW), Black Ops 2 could not have been a bigger step in the exact wrong direction, Black Ops 1 had beautiful maps, from size to layout. Black Ops 2 had tiny little pieces of crap that weren’t remotely fun.

    • Why are you posting on a CoD website if you don’t like CoD?

      • TheMostManlyMan

        Because I used to love it, then MW3 happened and it’s gone downhill from there.

    • fruit juice

      lmfao, Beyong?

      • TheMostManlyMan

        Really? One typo and that’s worth a comment to you? You capitalized the second word in a sentence! I made one typo in a two paragraph rant and you (somehow) find that amusing, then you comment on it and managed to use improper grammar. ONE misplaced finger stroke versus you not using proper capitalization which had to be intentional. I made a little mistake with my fingers that I didn’t catch, and you ignorantly capitalized the wrong word.

        Shame on you and your family.

  • BigBadBryant

    I haven’t been excited about a Call of Duty game since I was 16 (Call of Duty 4) but I must admit, this outing has my attention

  • Mitch

    Look at the soldiers’ uniforms, exoskeletons?
    Powered Exoskeletons are mainly used to enhance strength and endurance. Maybe we can use it to jump higher, run for an unlimited time and carry more heavy weaponry?

  • ้™ณ้ƒๆ–‡
  • It’s the guy from the first teaser image?

  • Oliver

    Hi Ali-A

  • Psychomaggot105

    Is excited a understatement?

    …WHAT THE HELL I THOUGHT THAT WAS A FUCKING LIVE ACTION TRAILER SCREENSHOT.

  • PuddingAuxRais1ns

    Looks like the story will be about 1 PMC (Private Military Corporation) trying to take over the world.

  • Ryumoau

    love the uniforms they are wearing in that image and the visuals look unlike any previous title. This really could finally be a new engine for the franchise! Can’t wait for the official reveal sunday!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Guys, team metal-blacksmith, sandman may return ๐Ÿ™‚

    • And in the superpower for hire video i saw an intervention ๐Ÿ˜€

  • RegaDega

    I’m getting a Metal Gear vibe from that exosuit thing he’s wearing…. Hopefully it’ll just be the design, and not the story (PMCs ruling wars *coughMGS4cough*)

  • Tayler Hammond

    What rumors does the image put to bed?

  • {BHC}Max

    So Idris Alba and James Bond (Sandman) join forces to kick the baddies asses?

  • KevJumbaify .

    DAMN :O

  • KevJumbaify .

    We at least we know this cant be worse then ghosts..

    • MichiganerE

      Rigggggghhhhht.

  • KevJumbaify .

    only if that WW1 rumour was true. fuck you gamespot

  • The_Vortex

    Wow.. I was hoping for a game that would take place in the PAST not the modern day or future again! This sucks guys ๐Ÿ™

  • Mobin Amanzai

    If you haven’t noticed, the two soldiers in the image are wearing exoskeletons suits

  • Curt Davey

    oh my god, black people

  • SoulTaker

    AND SO IT BEGINS!

    • truthhasbeenspoken

      this picture is 100% invalid at COD2014 since it’s being created for 3 years by a new developer, everything can happen here.

      • SoulTaker

        Who knows maybe I’m wrong?!? ๐Ÿ˜€ Maybe those 3 years will pay off…maybe they won’t?:(
        ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jack Meoff

    This is funny reading all the comments WOW THIS LOOKS GREAT OMG I CAN NOT WAIT TO PLAY….all the same stuff people said about ghosts and now you get everybody hating on it and the same thing is going to happen with the new cod

  • Xecho

    VVVV1 sounds like shit anyvvays =l

  • AcePhoenix007

    Looks pretty nice so far.

  • Xecho

    Guys it looks like a TALOS helmet

  • TAB

    Appears to me that they might be taking a bit from “Army of Two”

  • trysomething

    Shadow Company, Shephard, MW2, anyone?

  • That looks a lot like Keith David(voice of Sgt. Foley from MW2.)

    I love this guy TheShadowReaper low key he’s made every one to type something feel bad about their self lol

  • Tank

    The quality looks insane even for a screenshot I thought it was a real person!!

  • Wraith

    BF4 ran on almost medium at 720p to get 60fps on next gen consoles. If this screenshot ingame, then I don’t know about how it’s going to run 60fps. Wonder if they’re integrating their fancy cloud tech to aid the consoles with the graphics load.

  • Mr Sir

    I just want a COD WITH ACTUAL DEDICATED SERVERS! THATS ALL THE GAME CRUCIALLY NEEDS! Everything else is just about preference in all honesty, you have three types of people 1. The Graphics guys who only want better graphics 2. The Gameplay guys who want the game to cater to their personal tastes and 3. PC players with their computers which are mostly over kill. And all three want different things and you WILL NEVER cater to all three.
