The former Senior Art Director and Game Director at Crystal Dynamics, Brian Horton, has joined Infinity Ward as the new Studio Art Director. His Linkedin profile states that he will be leading the team of artists at Infinity Ward on their latest project.


At Crystal Dynamics, Horton worked as Senior Art Director on Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Horton then worked as the Game Director on Crystal Dynamics’ latest release, Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Crystal Dynamics revealed that Brian Horton is departing their studio on their Tumblr blog with the following statement:

“It’s been a huge honor to be a part of the Tomb Raider franchise and the team at Crystal Dynamics,” shared Horton. “I’ve met fans from all over the world, both in person and online, to share in our love for the franchise and Lara Croft. After working on two amazing games, my family and I have decided to return to Southern California and start a new adventure. As sad as I am to leave the team at Crystal, I’m excited to play their future games as a fan. Thanks again for the years of support and feedback and I hope to stay in touch with you all online.”

Infinity Ward’s new Call of Duty title is set to be available later this year. Activision changed Call of Duty to a three year development cycle in 2014; Sledgehammer Games’ first three year title released in 2014; Treyarch’s first three year title released in 2015. There is no official details on what Infinity Ward’s new Call of Duty game will be as of now.

    Has anyone played on metro recently? I don’t think I’ve played it since November lol. Not that I’m complaining

    • Aidan

      No. All I’ve been able to get on is either Fringe or Combine.

    • Lucky you. Metro for me is crap and usually get stuck in it when I play Safeguard.

      • madshooterguy

        metro is actually alright for dom, if ur team’s got good map control

        • well with vahns one man army vs the rest matchmaking it’s next to never

  • jordanxbrookes

    I’m here ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Kyle Soule

      Oh I know. It does sound like its going to be a good game since it seems to be attracting a bunch of other developers and since they are talented developers from other AAA studios I think they will have a huge positive impact on IW’s next game.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Don’t forget. It’s CoD.

        • iext23

          Don’t forget. It could be Ghosts 2.

          • Ohma Shu

            ^ I love that comment LOL

          • Deadpool

            And…?

          • iext23

            If we take a look at the last few Call of Duty games… Ghosts has probably had the most negativity from the community. IW screwed up on that, and I don’t really trust them with their next game. I’m not buying it. Forgive me if I don’t want to be disappointed, but I’m keeping my expectations very low.

          • SPAWNST4R

            Advanced SBMMFare had the most negative reactions, by far !

          • iext23

            I don’t know, they both received a good amount of criticism, but I think Ghosts had the most. They were both pretty bad, in my opinion.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yeah. Infinity Ward is done.

    • MichiganerE

      I hope this is a sign IW’s in a good place again.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        No way in hell lol. It’s still CoD.

        • MichiganerE

          Has nothing to do with it being good or bad.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Sure it does. Infinity Ward has proven themselves to be incapable. A Crystal Dynamics developer will not magically make it a fun experience. As I stated, it’s CoD. Expect hand-holding gameplay, weird scripted setpieces, and explosions galore. At least Treyarch had Co-Op and more open levels. They actually made their Singleplayer replayable. Infinity Ward has no chance.

          • MichiganerE

            Who knows, they could be taking some influence from BO3.

      • Rorke File

        Todd left and he joined in very late, but let’s hope for the best.

        • MichiganerE

          Yep.

    • Guywithbrains

      Imagine if Infinity Ward redeems itself and becomes the best Call of Duty developer again.

      Everything is pointing to at least massive improvement from Ghosts. Bigger studio, talented guys coming to Infinity Ward and return to boots on the ground… this year we are either going to be blown away or then disappointed because of massive amount of hype.

      ^ But don’t let name “Ghosts 2” fool you. A sequel to “Ghosts” doesn’t automatically mean it is going to be bad.

      • CrazyWolf

        I like the very last part of your comment. Good to see you’re living up to your name.

        • Guywithbrains

          Well it is just common sense and I am pretty sure everyone but pure haters (people outside of true fan community) are giving Ghosts 2 a chance. And if I am asked Ghosts 2 is worth giving the shot (especially if it is boots on the ground).

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I m way more hyped for Ghosts 2 than I was with BO3 just bc I want to see how much they ve improved since their last game .

          • Stealthninja808

            Sure, multiplayer has a great shot at being great., I didn’t really care for the campaign. I think a new entry would be best, especially considering the negative stigma surrounding the series.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I want Infinity Ward to blow my mind.

        • ccrows

          As much as Ghosts frustrated me with the DLC gimmick characters and no counter to DC.

          As much as MW3 frustrated me with SRP Post Patch.

          As much as MW2 frustrated me with, well basically everything.

          There was COD4, and COD4 is my all time favorite COD game. Even though COD4 was made by another Dev team, I would still love to see IW rise and succeed once again… 🙂

          • Guywithbrains

            I guess that after Ghosts the only way is up. And I am pretty sure they are going up because of given reasons above.

      • RobMelchor

        Totally agree, Ghost 2 if done right will be a good COD.

      • Rorke File

        I really hope it’s MW4 with boots on the ground, the last COD games since Ghosts weren’t fun or to futuristic.

    • RdJokr

      Don’t get too hyped till you see the final product, mate. Don’t wanna end up like MichiganerE after AW again.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Well I’ve always enjoyed IW’s games for the most part so I have faith with them. After the bullshit of AW I think I deserve to be excited for IW’s game this year.

        • Scott

          Me too , I really want their game to be MW4 and bring Ghost back from the dead.

        • Rorke File

          I hope SHG does make a boots on the ground game again, they were responsible of the MW3 MP.

          • jordanxbrookes

            They were responsible for the single-player actually.

          • CoDforever

            LOL no, they did majority of MW3 mp,

            Most of InfinityWards MP team left to make titanfall. I know u hate SHG but give credit to where its due.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I am giving credit, they did the single-player for MW3 which is why I liked AW’s campaign for the most part.

          • CoDforever

            na go look at the credits again most of the mp people were from SHG and raven, with a few IW guys but all of them worked together on the whole game in general

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            MW3 was straight up ass.

          • CoDforever

            agree, other than its campaign and post launch support I dont know why people think of it so highly. Its still one of the lower rated cods.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Not just that… The Multiplayer was broken as fuck, the Campaign was half-assed (yet okay) and it’s one of the ugliest games I’ve ever seen during the 7th generation.

      • MichiganerE

        What? I never hyped up AW. That last CoD game I was excited for was BO2.

        • RdJokr

          Really? Hmm, must have confused you with someone else.

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe you confused me with Jordan? When AW was revealed, he was hyped while I was thought it was going to be awful, but I still wanted it to be good (it’s an okay game in my opinion).

          • RdJokr

            Ohhhh right, it was Jordan. My bad.

          • MichiganerE

            It’s fine.

          • Tuby

            With jordan

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Me. It was me. You can say it’s me.

    • CrazyWolf

      You did say on YouTube that you’d return. Welcome back, buddy. Also, with all this talent coming to Infinity Ward, I’m starting to think that CoD 2016 is gonna be awesome. I can just feel it…

      • jordanxbrookes

        A promise is a promise 🙂

      • SarDoggy

        I can just..feel it..

    • My Donger has sensed a disturbance In the force. Now I know why.

    • Stealthninja808

      As salty as I am about their last few games, their development team is starting to display a lot of talent and I cannot disregard it. They better not waste it, lol.

    • ShadowMaster862

      So we have some people who’ve contributed to Uncharted and Tomb Raider. I’m sorry but this just falshed in my head

    • Rorke File

      The game is almost done, they had to join in at the beginning of the development and Todd had to stay 🙁

      • jordanxbrookes

        There’s still 11 months before the game launches lol. There is plenty of time to make improvements and decisions in development.

        • Rorke File

          Do you think it’s MW4?

    • iext23

      But then you remember the last IW game was Ghosts…

      • jordanxbrookes

        I liked Ghosts. It wasn’t the best, but I enjoyed it longer than most people.

        • iext23

          Looking back on the previous games, Ghosts had the most negativity toward it. If you enjoyed it, though, then that’s great. The majority of the community didn’t.

  • Kyle Soule

    Hey Keshav, you spelled crystal wrong.

    • GinsuVictim

      Twice

      • Kyle Soule

        I noticed that too.

    • Keshav Bhat

      fixed, sorry about that. typing from mobile early in the morning haha

      • Kyle Soule

        It’s fine I was just messing around haha it’s no big deal.

  • Kyle Soule

    You also spelled edition wrong.

  • Camo

    All these new people are coming from one general gaming type area. They’re both from the Uncharted and Tomb Raider. Could we possibly be seeing some type of Tomb Raider / Uncharted game as the next CoD installment? There were rumours before about them wanting to transform CoD into an Action Adventure type of game.

  • RdJokr

    Hopefully this means better story development. IW seriously needs to step their game up, because Ghosts’ campaign was ass. I won’t expect anything too high from them (mainly because Treyarch spoiled me with their amazing campaigns so many times already), but at least make some decent MW-quality campaign again, and I’ll consider buying their next title.

    • Guywithbrains

      I was satisfied with Ghosts’ campaign. Especially gameplay wise. There were many levels where you got to use vehicles and even space weapon. Campaign’s stealth mission “Federation Day” was one of my favorites.

      Compared to Black Ops 3 it was on a whole new level.

      The ending itself was awesome BUT also odd because no one can survive getting beaten up, then getting shot, then falling to water meanwhile part of a train wreck comes behind to Rorke’s ass and then drowning.

      • RdJokr

        Gameplay-wise, it was pretty much the usual COD game though. Which is disappointing, considering that the game released before (Black Ops II) brought many good changes to the campaign side, Ghosts just felt like a step backwards. AW was the same, but at least it had a good story going for me.

        I guess the problem was that Ghosts’ characters felt too generic for me. Other than Rorke, everyone else just doesn’t provide a lot of substance to the story. And it doesn’t help that the guy we play as is a silent protagonist, which destroys any form of immersion for me. it was a slight issue that can be overlooked in past games, but Ghosts just amplifies it somehow, because you’re pretty much invisible in all the conversations. You could just stand far away from everything, and the characters would just carry on until that obligatory “Ramirez! Do everything” command.

        • Guywithbrains

          Well that is true. The character, who we are playing, should say something and react to events around him.

          But maybe we could get that feature after Naughty Dog guys came to help with the story.

          • RdJokr

            As long as they ditch the silent protagonist thing, that’s already a massive improvement. This is one of the reasons I love Treyarch’s campaigns: having a voice makes me feel involved in everything.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Ghosts was one of the worst CoDs of all time across all modes.

    • There are so many flaws and errors with Ghosts story that it would take me 2 hours to explain them all. The Story was SO bad, that any normal person who hasn’t played CoD would think you play as someone who is immortal or a superhero.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Pretty much every FPS has you as a superhero, though. There’s no character development. Just explosions everywhere. Cue the random explosions! Boom.

    • CoDforever

      you speak so much truth its unbelievable sometimes

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      “Amazing Campaigns” lol.

      • RdJokr

        Well, they ARE. You seriously cannot deny that Treyarch’s level of storytelling is way beyond what IW and SHG had done before.

        • MichiganerE

          Especially in the Zombies department.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          You mean for CoD’s standards? Ah… My bad. We gamers tend to overexaggerate when we think that games are “amazing” or “fantastic”, so I was confused.

    • Considering Rorke gets shot IN THE EFFING HEART and not only walks it off but kidnaps our character afterward, IW will have ALOT of explaining to do if they make a sequel to Ghosts.
      Fingers crossed that they don’t though and do something new.

    • Frag Wall

      Don’t get me wrong, I love Ghosts. But it’s the exactly the same like ragdoll animation, same sound design (like when you get hurt with blood on the screen you can hear him grunting the same as MW1), needs colorful pallete and there’s no pre-rendered cutscenes like AW or Black Ops 3 (this has happened since MW1 too, loading and some briefing dialogue before starting mission).

  • Scott

    One of my Journalist friends was at IW recently and told me some minor details. He doesn’t know what the game is going to be regarding Ghost 2 or MW4 but was told about the new Engine that IW is working on. The New Engine is the Unreal Engine 4 . IMO the UN4 is absolutely beautiful and one of the best out their. With Battlefield 5 being rumored to be updating their Frostbite engine IW needed to make the change to a new Engine. Every COD fan has been asking for a new Engine and it looks like we may get one this year.

    • Got sources saying the same. If they indeed go with Unreal Engine 4 think of how many sales this is going to generate. Not to mention it will shut up all the idiots who say CoD is the same each year. Lets hope it’s true.

      • Scott

        Hoping its true as well , we need some change ( Engine wise ). IW could do endless amount of content with this new engine.

        • Have you played the Unreal Tournament 4 on PC. It looks amazing and there is so much potential. I play it from time to time and it is a blast.

          • Scott

            I haven’t but I have friends who have played it before , from what they told me it sounds amazing. This is the year EA will be going all out to finally beat Activision in sales , in the past EA had their chance to do so with B4 & Star Wars Battlefront but failed.

          • BF4 would beat Ghosts if their game wasn’t broken and didn’t crash every 20 minutes. Sales for that game were down for the next 7 months until they finally fully fixed the issues. Shows you what happens then publishers push an unfinished product out the window. Battlefront was a an ugly cash grab by EA without the STAR WARS theme the game would be average as fuck. I will never forgive them for destroying my Battlefront ever.

      • darren

        Didn’t a couple months ago Activision bought some engine company outright? Why would they buy an engine company, just to spend more money using UE4?

    • banerising

      Honestly, I feel like Black Ops 3 is one of the best looking games out right now. The game lags a lot though, even in offline modes, hopefully we start getting games that are almost 100% lagfree, maybe a new engine will change that.

      • Scott

        Treyarch has had some pretty bad Net Coding issues in their last two games. They tried fixing the problem in BO3 but honestly they would be better off making a new engine to help their Net Coding problem.

        • banerising

          Yeah, their games always feel slightly “gummy” if that makes any sense. Black Ops 3 is probably my favorite of any CoD, but I don’t play as much as I would due to the lag. I gave up playing BO2 not long after release for that reason, but BO3 has improved a lot just not on the level as say the MW games.

        • madshooterguy

          the only big problem with Treyarch games is the netcode, IW games usually never have netcode problems

    • Digital_Veil_

      COD has used IDTech-based IW engine developed in-house at Activision for every single COD game ever made. I don’t know who your think your “source” is but you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning twice than Activision paying out the ass to license a generic engine instead of one specifically built and specialized for COD.

  • Guywithbrains

    We are about 3 months away from reveal of next Infinity Ward title. Anyone have guesses or hopes for voice actors?

    ^ This came to my mind because there are rumors David Harewood will be in it. He is known of movie “Blood Diamond” and games like Killzone: Shadow Fall and Battlefield 3.

    This is the source and people claim they are usually right (take as grain of salt): http://levelsave.com/david-harewood-rumored-to-star-in-infinity-wards-next-call-of-duty-sources-tell-levelsave/

    • Check Supergirl (TV show) I love him in it because he plays more then one character and he does have skills when It comes to acting. I hated him in Shadow Fall for good reason, he shot my man Lucas. And I love him for that, shows that he can be a good guy and a bad guy.

      • Tffjjfcv

        Wait, he doesn’t play more than one character, he’s just a character disguised as another character.

        • He plays Hank Henshaw in the flashbacks and then Jon Jones in the present. So kinda two characters.

      • Kyle Soule

        Isn’t that the new show about the female version of Superman?

        • It’s a new show. But there is no female version of superman. Supergirl is Supermans cousin, and she fight crime and evil like him. I like it, it’s pretty good. And the mid-season finale is fantastic.
          If you are into DC and superheroes I would give it a try

          • Kyle Soule

            Wait, she is Superman’s cousin? I don’t know much about it I just saw it a couple of times on a commercial.

          • Omer Hodzic

            Yeah, I love watching the supergirl, flash and arrow series, looking forward to legends of tomorrow!

    • Kyle Soule

      There’s only 3 months left? Wow, where have I been?

      • MichiganerE

        If future CoD games are sticking with the plans of revealing the next game in April, then yeah, three months.

    • Mick

      I want Ice Cube. Just like in bo1, Bowman was Ice Cube. Or Dwayne Johnson (just my preference).

    • ShadowMaster862

      Anyone who is known for stellar heroes and/or villains. It’d be nice to have someone we usually see in games such as Nolan North, Tryo Baker, and Laura Bailey. I’m having a hard time thinking who would does great roles, but would that voice work be great outside their amazing role/character. ALso, Troy Baker is already Mitchell from AW. Nolan North does Richtofen for Zombies.

      • RdJokr

        Oh man, imagine a COD game with Laura Bailey as the lead playable character. We desperately need one.

        Still, there’s no rule that says a voice actor can’t do more than one character. Nolan voiced some minor characters in BO2 Zombies, and Troy was previously in MW2 and BO1 in minor roles as well.

        • CoDforever

          troy baker was the main character in AW and nolan is richtofen

          • RdJokr

            I know that. But I’m saying that they’re not necessarily restricted to voicing just those characters. They can do different characters for different games. Granted, Nolan may be busy with Zombies, but Troy sure can go around for some new roles. He needs one, since his role as Mitchell in AW was severely underused compared to the other characters.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You can see them in their awful portrayals in Arkham Knight (I know nothing about voice acting, I’m just yanking your chain).

          • RdJokr

            While I agree that Troy’s performance in Arkham Knight was weak, it was more of a problem with how the character was written. Look at Joker in Arkham Origins; that was a masterpiece.

            And Penguin is Penguin.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Point is, is that they’re overused. They’re good actors, but they’re thrown into many games for no reason. Arkham Knight in-general was a poorly-written game. Mainly Conroy’s performance was incredible, as always. It’s as if Rocksteady suddenly lost their spark. That’s what happens when you make a game with mechanics that pretty much create a new genre.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Careful bruh, you’ll get called an SJW. I don’t think CoD needs a female protagonist. But if we did, at least she’d have an alright voice actor.

    • Rorke File

      Voice actor of Price.

  • Duke of hazard

    You’re having really good developers join your team, IW. Plus you have 3 years. There is no excuse to drop ANOTHER shit Cod.

  • CoDforever

    Dont get your hopes up, im calling it right now this game will still probably suck ass and we’ll probably stick to bo3

    • I gave up on IW a lonnnggggg time ago

      • darren

        Honestly, I have too. But credit where credit is due, in MW3, I loved the fact that DLC was released monthly. I wish that was something that would have caught on in the series.

        • Yeah Call of Duty Elite was pretty cool honestly.

          • jooker-jr

            It brought season pass, it was 30% cool.

          • The idea was cool at the time was what I was saying.

          • jooker-jr

            Yeah, some ideas were great, but some just doesn’t worth 50$/year.

  • Digital_Veil_

    The last couple TR games were downright beautiful, especially on PC, no doubt about that. But IW needs to do a lot more than pick up 1 art director to turn itself around and make good games again.

  • I wonder if we’ll ever get another WW2 Call of Duty game. I hope one of these developers are working on one..

    • Digital_Veil_

      Might as well forget that hope because we’ll never see another WW2 shooter again (at least not a AAA title). And I don’t know why people want it so bad. Nostalgia heavily distorts our memories. Not only is it not as profitable as modern/future FPS games, the WW2 games were honestly boring.

      • Nostalgia?

        I’m not speaking from Nostalgia. I actually enjoy World War 2 games and they were not boring at all. They are actually really fun and interesting if you enjoy history, so.

    • Honestly i hope not.
      What else can they do in the WW2 era that they (or any other shooter for that matter) haven’t already done?
      And what kind of gameplay mechanics can they incorperate into an older era with less technology than what they’re presenting in these past CoDs?

      • I mean, honestly what is so different about futuristic shooters? Jumping around?

        Its a first person shooter, not really much to change

        But you shouldn’t doubt the game developers, I’m sure a World War 2 game could most definitely be pulled off in 2016.

        Plus, I love history and I enjoy games about World War 2.

        • It’s not the game quality i’d be worried about, it’s the fact that it’s been done. Like 100 times.
          -Virtually every CoD before the first Modern Warfare was in or around that time era
          -Medal of Honor did it
          -Battlefield 1942
          -Brothers In Arms
          Up until Battlefield 2142 (or whatever the future one was after 1942) that was every FPS game. Go here, shoot nazis, don’t die, yay America/Britain/whoever they wanted you to play as.
          As nostalgic as a WW2 shooter may be, the problem would be the fact that there really isn’t anything new to do in that era. It’d be the same shit we saw back in the old CoD era just with pretty graphics. It wouldn’t be fresh or new. Nostalgic, sure, but nothing fresh or different.
          Now that’s not to say it would be completely bad, if it were done in a different style perhaps. For example, Sniper Elite V2 and Sniper Elite 3 were both fun WW2 era shooters because they weren’t the same ol’ FPS. It was 3rd person and our character wasn’t an invincible soldier; he was a Sniper who quite frankly sucked with standard ARs and such.
          So if we’re gonna get a WW2 era game in 2016, it needs to be something fresh and different, ie Sniper or even Valiant Hearts, to be successful.

          • If it’s Call of Duty, it’s most likely going to be successful no matter what. I don’t understand your argument.

            And to your point, a futuristic setting has been done plenty of times in like what, the last 6 years or so? I’m not sure. But the futuristic setting is basically the samething as a WW2 games 10 years ago

            And stop using nostalgia, I’m looking at nostalgia and I’m sure other people who want WW2 games aren’t using nostalgia either. I just want a good current gen World War 2 game, and I most definitely think it can happen in today’s video games, especially with the technology today, graphics today, etc. and I think Call of Duty can definitely do something awesome if a WW2 game today.

          • I bring up nostalgia alot because that’s the only thing i see a WW2 CoD in 2016 bringing to the table. Unless they make up a story in a fictional setting, nearly everything except the geaphics would be exactly the same as the old CoDs. No new gameplay mechanics, no new story, just pretty graphics. That’s it.
            And to your point, yes a futuristic setting has been done alot, but these are bringing different stories, different gameplay mechanics, and different overall content to the FPS market, hence why so many shooters do it. There’s room for creativity and fresh ideas, like Black Ops 3’s story, or Crysis’s mechanics for example.
            So again, my question is, if any FPS maker were to make yet another WW2 shooter, what can it bring to the table that hasn’t already been done?

          • Really, and what exactly are futuristic settings bringing differently to the table? Because I’m not seeing it. As I said before, I like the futuristic setting and everything, it’s cool, I love Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 2 a lot, but they’re not as different as people like you make them out to be. they’re starting to get a bit overdone honestly.

  • ToonToons22

    I honestly can’t wait to see what IW has in store for us this year. They have had three years, as well as new and experienced developers joining their team. Even if they do decide to name it “Ghosts 2,” I will still buy it just to see how it turns out.

  • ALex

    I really hope they don’t go down the futuristic route.. WE’RE SICK TO DEATH OF IT

  • Thug Turf

    Hopefully IW redeems themselves. I suppose after the backlash ghosts caused, the only direction they could move up to get the communities love again, is up.

    • Rorke File

      They won’t ”marketing”.

      • Thug Turf

        What do you mean boss? You mean they won’t succeed marketing the game, or something else?

    • brad

      Idk why everyone hated ghosts so much. They did exactly what the community asked for after bo2. I thought ghosts was a great game, actually liked it more than bo2 and bo3. At least with ghosts you get decent hit detection and lag comp and decent connection

      • Thug Turf

        I will agree with you that hit detection and connection was fine. But what made me mad was how bad I’d be melted every game. The I.E.D.’s would fudge me up and I was always pitted up against people trying their harsest to win their clan wars. I don’t blame people for hating ghosts, because it irked me in many ways, but I can see why some people still liked it.

        • brad

          Yeah sitrep was a must with those IEDS. The reason you felt like you got melted is because the hit detection and connection were so good. Also the guns were all pretty powerful. But I really hope we get ghosts 2 or even mw4. They’ll learn from their mistakes. Then only thing that could derail their game is if they are forced into or choose to include exo movements or any kinds of advanced movement system like AW or BO3

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        “I thought ghosts was a great game” you’re just asking to get bitch-slapped. Naw I keed. I thought it was terrible. Obviously a half-assed job.

        • brad

          Yeah, well there are people that think advanced warfare was a great game LOL it’s all opinion bud. I loved MW3 as well. I just think Infinity Ward is a better developer than Treyarch. My opinion.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Damn, son! You might get a nice big red hand print on your face lmao. /s

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      I think they’re fucked.

  • Diego Diniz

    Good LUCK Infinity Ward! You have 1 year To bring us “THE” Call of Duty Game.
    And Black Ops 3 Multiplayer is AWESOME!!!

    • jooker-jr

      How’s the connection in your country? You complained a lot about it at the beginning.

      • Diego Diniz

        Its better…thank GOD!

  • milos

    haha im amazed activision haven’t cut infinity ward from the call of duty series because of their trash they have been bringing out the past few cods.

    • lunator100hd .

      I played ghosts yesterday, the game has only 3-4k ppl online. Even right now the gunfights feel smoother in ghosts than bo3 and the lag comp is way better. Ghosts was trash like you said but if you ask me IW is the team that has the potential to deliver the best cod ever made. Trearch did a good job this year but no matter how hard they try, their games will always be mediocre cause of the faulty hit detection and net code. IW games are functionally better or less ”problematic”. Ghosts was garbage cause of bad choises and nothing else.

      • GinsuVictim

        I want to vote your post up, but the use of “trash” and “garbage” prevents it. I do like most of what you’re saying though.

        • lunator100hd .

          English is not my first language, whats your problem with “trash” and “garbage”?

          • GinsuVictim

            It’s neither trash nor garbage.

          • lunator100hd .

            It is compared to mw2/cod4 imo.

      • brad

        They already did make the best cods ever made. They made cod4, mw2 and MW3 which are the greatest cods ever made

        • lunator100hd .

          I agree 100% but keep in mind that those games happened in last gen, now they have more tools and experience to improve their games even more and surpass even mw2 (best fps ever made imo).

    • Rorke File

      The last game was trash, but they had also good years. I remember when IW laughed at Treyarch’s COD 3 when they brought COD4 out.

      • milos

        well i “remember” treyarch have been laughing at iw for the past few years since black ops 1 🙂

    • brad

      Infinity ward is by far the best developer in the call of duty franchise

    • YoungMurf

      You really are a naive prick! IW made 3 of the best CoD’s there has ever been.

  • sam

    Is anyone having issues with xbox one partychat again?

  • BHCMax

    what happened to “3 x year cycle” ? this guy will have 9 months or less to make any impact.

    • lunator100hd .

      Exactly, 3 years my ass!

      • Aceshigh87

        This guy isn’t a studio head or something, he’s art director. The main coding work would be long done. They probably hired this guy to help with finalizing visuals and such which definitely would not be done at this stage.

  • Jay Evan

    It’s funny how ghosts was considered worst COD ever. Oh wait, it’s not funny. Why is ghosts considered worst COD?

    • Ryumoau

      For me it was the terribly designed maps, which were too big. The awful boring color scheme which made ever map look dull and lifeless. The ridiculously short campaign that only lasted 4 hours. And the terrible Squads system, that removed the traditional prestige leveling that we used to have.

      • GinsuVictim

        Squads is the best thing yet!

      • Jay Evan

        I think having larger maps was pretty good. The fact that their is a high chance of not getting spawn trapped as well as being ready for a gunfight when you spawn in.

        • brad

          I agree. I really enjoyed ghosts. I like bigger maps. BO3 maps are way way way too small. I constantly get horrendous spawns. At least with bigger maps, you spawn in ou someone’s sights.

          • Jay Evan

            That’s what I want in future DLC for bo3. Medium to Larger maps can create more strategic gameplay.

      • Jay Evan

        Also, Ghosts is supposed to simulate the after-effects of WAR. you can’t expect a war-like setting to be as vibrant as possible.

    • jooker-jr

      For me, the very fast time to kill, the colors, IEDs, and the amount of campers in this game.

      I don’t consider ghosts to be a bad game, it’s just my least favorite cod.

  • jooker-jr

    Next year will be a very tough year for IW, a lot of PS4, XBOX, and PC exclusives are coming, BF5 is coming, over watch is coming, R6S will probably get more popular,BO3 is received positively by most of the community and more…

    Either their game is incredible or it will be forgotten pretty fast.

    • Ryumoau

      I’m hoping Infinity Ward gets off their high horse and actually takes notes from Treyarch and Sledeghammer’s games. The biggest issue i had with MW3 and Ghosts were that they seemed to ignore any progress that Treyarch brought to the franchise.
      Even if IW’s game isn’t set in the future, they could still find ways to incorporate things like specialists or brighter map designs that Treyarch is known for. I’m scared the new game might just be an improvement over Ghosts, which isn’t enough to make people care anymore. :/

      • jooker-jr

        I agree, and since a TON of great games are coming next year, they really need to take cod2016 seriously.

        We can only hope for the best 🙂

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Man, I think you would have so much more fun with gaming if you added a little more variety in your taste. It’s like all of the games you list are online Shooters. Add some pizzazzzzzzz. And people actually bought Siege, knowing what they’d get with that price tag? Damn.

      • jooker-jr

        I’m a fan of FPS games, but I’m definitely looking at other games from other genres, I’m just pointing at games that will compete with IW cod this year.

        And from what I’ve heard(and played during the beta), R6S is an incredible game, but it doesn’t worth 60$, so I think a lot people are waiting for a discount (like me).

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Ah, okay. I’m not doing these things to belittle you lol. I’m just curious. No big deal.

          I don’t know about it being “incredible”. Game taste is definitely subjective, though.

          • jooker-jr

            As someone who was waiting for a tactical shooter for consoles, I thought its great.

  • Ryumoau

    Wow this is getting me more and more interested in Infinity Ward’s next game. Though i wonder how much this person will contribute, since the game has already had 2 years of development put into it already.

  • They need to up their game on scorestreaks. I miss my attack helicopter, pave low and Osprey combo going to town!

  • FISH AI

    So wait better fish AI and graphics? You got me on the hook infinity ward. ( pun intended)
