A new rumor today has claimed that Infinity Ward’s new Call of Duty title for 2016 will take place very far into the future, in space.

There is already lots of comments around the web about Infinity Ward “not listening” and “why would they do this?”

Well, let’s talk about that.

When Infinity Ward released Call of Duty: Ghosts in 2013, it was the first Call of Duty game on next-gen consoles. Ghosts was met with harsh comments from press and fans alike. Press stated that the title was “not new” and “not innovative,” claiming that Infinity Ward was too scared to do something big and bold for Call of Duty. One example of this is in Polygon’s review, where they stated that Ghosts “is mired in a distinct lack of ambition” and does not go beyond what previous titles did. Some thing from Kotaku: too much of being similar to old titles. While some fans have disliked Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the press loved it. It got high scores from many outlets, including a 4/4 from USA Today. For Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Polygon praised it, stating Sledgehammer Games was willing to take a “risk” with Call of Duty. And Kotaku even called it “refreshing” for Call of Duty.

Fans alike criticized Infinity Ward for so long about how they hated the game and why they wanted something new. Call of Duty: Ghosts was reflected upon as being “bad” because it was too much of the same and nothing new was there. Some fans even called it one of the worst Call of Duty titles. A lot of fans, here on our comments too, compared Ghosts consistently to Treyarch’s Black Ops 2 and saying Black Ops 2 was a lot better. The feedback was one-sided then: Ghosts was not a good game.

So, why would Infinity Ward develop a Ghosts 2 if that name is associated with a bad title? Activision cannot market Ghosts 2 effectively to fans with its bad history. Just because the campaign had a cliffhanger, finishing up a cliffhanger is not worth developing a whole game that would receive harsh comments.

Now, here’s Infinity Ward looking at this feedback and want to do something new and something ambitious. We have to understand something: Infinity Ward’s vision for Call of Duty 2016 and development started before any of our feedback about Sledgehammer Games’ Advanced Warfare’s and Treyarch’s Black Ops 3’s settings. This title is based around and built on the feedback from what Infinity Ward saw from Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Infinity Ward started developing Call of Duty 2016 right after Call of Duty: Ghosts launched in 2013. That’s how all Call of Duty developers do it: release their latest title, then a team starts on the next one. When Ghosts launched and the pre-launch of Advanced Warfare hype came around, people loved seeing a new studio bringing something new and refreshing to the Call of Duty series. Once the negative feedback came in on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s setting after launch (in 2015), Infinity Ward was already a year and a half into development on Call of Duty 2016. They cannot scrap their idea and start something new, as they do not have enough time to do so. It is the same exact thing from Treyarch last year: when fans saw that Black Ops 3 was futuristic, fans went crazy thinking Treyarch did not listen to feedback. They did, but their ideas and vision for Black Ops 3 was locked in place. These developers do not start developing the latest game when Activision publicly announces the developer each year; the game’s been in development for years.

For the last three years, we have seen a trend here: the first title on the three year development cycle for each studio have all been something bold and ambitious. Sledgehammer Games did something we would have never though of before: took us to the future and changed the core movement system. Treyarch brought a more chained based movement, but kept advanced based movement in. Treyarch’s title also brought the most content in the base game that we have ever seen before in Call of Duty. In 2016, it is now Infinity Ward’s turn to try something bold.

Now, you must be asking: why can’t they re-imagine old Call of Duty titles? Activision would never, in our eyes, put a lead studio in charge of a remastering a previous Call of Duty. That would be a waste of their resources for the time being as trying something new makes more sense then spending three years re-building something old. While Activision CEO has stated remastering is something “they think about a lot,” it just does not make sense to spend three years for a main studio to re-up assets of an old game no matter how many fans ask for it. 

Before we criticize Infinity Ward for what they are doing this year, we have to remember that it is our feedback on Call of Duty: Ghosts that shaped Infinity Ward for this year’s title.

    well if thats true its not gonna be cod anymore its gonna be a mix of titanfall and deadspace

    • Devin Wolfe

      It’ll still be COD no matter what they do get a real argument.

  • SkillJack

    this is thier last chance for me, ghosts was shit, AW was shit, BO3 was meh. if its set in space im not buying it anymore they dont even bother to listen to the community and the franchise is slowly dying. i think they know it aswell so they dont give a fuck what they put out because they know people will still buy it

    • Devin Wolfe

      Why listen to a small number of man-children stuck in the past?

  • It’s 2016, yet I still want a high-def WWII game for next-gen. That’s when I had the most fun on CoD. Boots on the ground, 3 kills for a UAV, relatively balanced perk system. Latest titles seem like such a clusterf*ck of ridiculous perks (tracker and sixth sense, are you serious?!) and impossible to acquire scorestreaks. For the most part, BO3 has been a lot of fun, but I would still like to see how great of a old fashioned CoD game could be made with this 3-year cycle.

    • Felipe Rios

      I didn’t know the boys over at Droid Life played Call of Duty lol

      • Ha! I’ve been playing for years, can’t give up the addiction. I even got Kellen to play a bit with me when MW3 and BO2 were new titles. No matter how busy I get, I always find time for CoD

    • GR3Y_B1RD

      Sixth Sense is just awareness fir people without Headset…

    • Nella

      bo3 scorestreaks are easy to get

  • JeronimoPW

    To be honest, Activision is putting your neck to be cut, if it’s true. First, Activision doesn’t seem to care about what most fans want. Very serious mistake. Second, it seems that somehow Activision is forcing COD to have “Destiny elements”, making the series losing their identity. And third, and most serious fact, BF5 is coming this year. If this COD sucks, many casual players may end up going to BF5 and reject even Bo3. In my case, I’m much more interested about BF5 than IW cod right now

    • Tommy Ledge

      There are three types of people.. those that will hate the next Cod, those that will think its okay and those that will like it. No matter what category you fall under, you still bought it, and that’s all that matters to a Publisher.

      • Wraith

        Since when to all CoD haters buy CoD? That’s like saying CoD fanboys buy every Battlefield and Halo. Those 3 categories you mention are all in the same category, you’re all CoD fans. You buy CoD every year. Just don’t, and you’ll start putting pressure on Activision. Too many people complain about how bs supply drops are, then go on to say how its the publisher’s fault that they wasted hundreds of dollars on them. No one’s forcing you, so stop if you hate it so much. But if you won’t change your ways, how can you expect Activision to change theirs.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Shinobi is always right, so I can say I’m not one bit excited for a Space themed Call of Duty. Sure the single-player might be fun, but multiplayer? I have Halo and Titanfall for Multiplayer in Space. Quite sad about this news tbh, considering I trusted IW.

    • LovekillerX

      But we don’t know yet that will all combat happen in space itself or will there be planets, space ships/stations etc. Now we just have to wait. Someone asked if there is exo suit or jetpack but Shinobi probably didn’t notice that.

      So waiting for news about actual movement…

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s going to have thruster movement like Black Ops 3, maybe not as fluid as BO3 though.

        • Guywithbrains

          Flowing over ground and “flying” slowly to another platform that is higher than your current location comes first to my mind. It would make perfect sense because it is most likely in space.

          But I wonder how they are going to make killstreaks work in space… you can’t have helicopters, dogs etc.

          • LovekillerX

            Call of Duty: Space Warfare featuring advanced dog AI! Now dog can lunge even further and bite your butt even when you’re flying in the air!

          • TheBlackFiles

            And even better, we’ve teamed up with Sledgehammer to bring you Exo-Spacesuit! Now you can have all the vertical movement in the world because Black Ops 3 was not fluid! Now, you may be thinking this is Titanfall 2, and well, you’re wrong because we sued those motherf*ckers for stealing our ideas so they’re out of business! Now, that will be all of your money, plus your house and car and your family. Also we need your dog for advanced dog AI testing for Call of Duty: Dog Warfare which require a VR headset to fully BECOME THE DOG with fully dedodated survurs.
            R.I.P Call of Duty 2016.

        • Vikerii

          Knowing IW, they may scrap the thrusters and just employ weightless, random floating movements. Lol.

        • Devin Wolfe

          BO3 movement was much less fluid than AW’s anyone who says otherwise never really tried AW’s.

      • CoDGenesis

        If the multiplayer is anything like Ender’s Game I’ll be happy lol

    • Rorke File

      IW was my favorite studio, but I now really lost trust in COD. Didn’t play since Ghosts.

    • Devin Wolfe

      Titanfall was not in space it was on other planets which is not space think before you speak.

    • CrowReap .

      what if space call of duty is fun? You never actually know until you try it. Maybe I’m just saying this because I enjoyed ghosts. idk

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    Activison can get another studio to refurbish or polish or whatever Old Gen titles, to make em work for current gen. I would buy it. Look at Black Ops 1. Its almost on Xbox One. Dont say that a studio is gonna waste their time. Guarenteed that Black Ops 1 on the Xbox One will make alot of money because it will be on current gen.

    • hungryandrew

      It costs money, they would not spend money on a team to remaster and rebuild from ground up multilayer on a old cod game. Won’t happen.

  • Siftblade

    Ahh yes, continue to ignore fans in order to push your futuristic agenda that you want in COD for who knows what reason. Can’t wait for the new version of supply drops, where they lock maps behind P2W trash. Fuck you Activision, I say that from the bottom of my heart with utmost sincerity. I try so hard to still be a fan of COD because of what it used to be, but now I’m done. It’s gone too far.

  • I’m one of the few that prefer Sci-fi over WW1/WW2

    I’m glad they’re taking this route. There’s so many more options than the tired and very limited past

    • Rorke File

      They also had an option for Modern era games.

      • Devin Wolfe

        Still limited to what they can do.

        • Rorke File

          With the new consoles they have now, they can make better WW or Modern era games. And COD isn’t star wars or halo, it’s COD meant to be bootsontheground.

          • Devin Wolfe

            COD can be COD no matter the time period stop being dumb and I meant limited in the story and the setting.

  • Rorke File

    I think the COD community has to much fans with different opinions that they can’t listen to everybody. But a normal bootsontheground COD game would’ve been great tho.

    • Devin Wolfe

      To the vocal minority it would be but for the hundreds of thousands to millions of new fans no it wouldn’t.

  • Rorke File

    They can’t produce future era games consistently. There will be a normal one in a few years hahah.

  • CoDforever

    Remember when cod used the be the same shit every year?

    I miss those days.

    • Dude32

      You know this “same shit ,different year” thing all started this.

      • Siftblade

        Pretty sure this isn’t what people wanted when they said that though.

        • Guest

          What DID the people want? There isn’t exactly much they can do that might change the formula and make fans mad. If a game is different, people will hate it and request a game more similar to the earlier games. If it’s the same, there will be those “same shit, different year” posts. Because in reality, the best thing activision can do is STOP making CoD games every year because thats how the meme starts.

      • ccrows

        Disagree.

        IMHO it was when Ghosts was stuggling and Activision was S***ting with all the TF hype, and said, “We need to change our movement system to be more like TF”.

        Being 100% serious I blame TF more than anything, but hey I like BO3 so if it’s done right then I’m all for it… 🙂

        • I agree

        • Wraith

          Both AW and Titanfall began development around the same time in 2011.

      • Ak74u

        Yeah people don’t understand that there isn’t much you can really change in a realistic first person shooter game.

        • ” realistic “

          • CoDforever

            it did used to be realistic, realistic guns, maps, factions, killstreaks etc

          • Wraith

            It hasn’t been remotely realistic since CoD3 sir. Having real-life weapons and junk isn’t the only deciding factor in what makes a game “realistic.” It’s the game mechanics. CoD4 and up, CoD set itself up as a full-throttle arcade shooter focusing on fast aiming, and mostly small-med maps to really compliment that. As far as I know, running and gunning like a madman isn’t realistic in the slightest. But that’s the core of CoD, and that magic is long disappeared anyway.

          • ” realistic kill streaks ”

            ” realistic guns ”

            lol ok

    • Adrix

      Now that you mention it, no matter what the developers do, the CoD community is never pleased. People kept complaining that CoD is always this fast paced arcade-ish shooter that never changes, and now that they’ve been presented with new movement mechanics and futuristic settings, everyone is like “RIP CoD”, “Fav foh no exos”, “CoD is dead”, “boots on the ground” etc.. Face it: no matter what the devlopers come up with, a large part of the community will never be pleased. They will still go on about how the studios and Activision are nothing but moneywhores, how CoD is the “cancer” for the entire gaming industry (how you can even use this word is such a context is beyond me), kids will still spam social media with their immature insults and so on and so forth. I understand that many people find it infuriating that the developers don’t listen as to what settings the community would like to see in future titles or that the publisher decided to make big money with supply drops, but honestly, does all of this even matter anymore? If you get critisized and insulted for everything you do, what’s the point in listening? Eventually we’ll go back to WW 2, people will love it for the first few months, but eventually the hate train will come back.

      I guess this is the curse of an unhealthy, immature community.

      • Dude32

        I really feel sorry for developers. They get all the hate but we all know in the end that money whore Activision and cancerous and complaining community is here to blame.

      • Sonny Boyer

        I strongly agree with you about how there will always be hate on CoD, but these companies are just getting started and “experimenting” with what they can do with the newer technology they possess. So what if we don’t like the boost jump feature in AW. They fixed the shit out of it in BO3! Sure BO3 is in need of some serious TLC, but like what these companies are aiming for is a little of something everyone can enjoy. In the next game the boost jump may just be an option instead of something every pretty much has to use. As for the space thing, I think that may be around for a while.I do miss the older CoD, but the new ones ain’t that bad. I can always find at least 1 thing I like about all of them, from the realism, to the map size or how the map is set up, to the feel of the weapons. But there is also something we all dislike in every game. MW2 with the plain glitch, MW3 the god mode/invisible/auto aim(all CoD games), BO1 is the same problem as MW3, BO2 had a lot of connection errors, in CoD Ghosts there was a lot of camping, in AW it was the boost jump, and for my the wall running on BO3 when my dude just stops an I fall an kill myself pisses me off. But these are just my thoughts. I really do feel like the makers and creators of CoD are trying a little of everything out, then gonna make something incredible within the next few years. We just gotta be patient and let the people of InfinityWard and Activision do what they do and we will eventually get everyone wants.

      • se7enX89X

        The community doesn’t want ANOTHER futuristic cod for the third year in a row, thats why I think people are pissed. The developers don’t listen to what the players want.

        • Frank Rizzo

          Did you read the article? It’s too late. Three years too late.

        • RandomDude

          This dumbass…

    • Horacio Sanchez

      hahha this comment made my day funny as fukkkkkkkkkkkkk

    • W1LL1AM04

      We remember

      • CoDforever

        “used the be”

  • ccrows

    OK, but look at the population numbers for the MW games, and then look at the population numbers for Ghosts. Look at the online petitions for a MW series remastered remake, look at other message boards “hoping” for a MW remake. (just clean up OMA/SRP PP/ETC)

    This didn’t need to be that difficult.

    IW had a sure thing, but they wanted to put their own thumbprint on something new, and sadly they are probably gonna pay the price for it.

    LOTS OF People are willing to say “Shut up and take my money” for a MW series remastered remake, and IMHO Activision needs to get people on project that like yesterday.

    I honestly hope this new game ends up being “COD4 good” otherwise this series is in serious trouble… 🙁

    • CoDforever

      unfortunately the number of people that said they want cod4 remastered are no where near the amount of people that bashed this franchise for being the same shit every year. UNFORTUNATELY

      • ccrows

        I honestly don’t think space warfare isn’t going to go over too well. Alderman quit on it 4 months in, and there’s not going to be a showing at E3. Activision has to know that this is gonna fail.

        So here’s my thinking, get as many people involved on a MW remaster (just clean up the BS) and get it out the door ASAP. Hopefully Activision has the foresight to do such a thing already, otherwise it’s probably going to be a brutal Spring/Summer 2017 for them…

        ^ Although it does kinda explain the recent job posting for COD online, but I’d much much much much much rather see a remastered version on consoles…

  • TfarTn

    I can’t wait to see Jordan play this. ????

  • Dude32

    Activision doesn’t care about what fans say and want. Activision cares about money.

    I think the only way for COD to be good again is that people stop buying these futuristic games that everyone seems to hate or just end the damn series and remaster some good old classics.

    • And then people will complain there isn’t an old CoD and that the series is just stagnant and stuck in the past etc…like clockwork and the “CoD cycle”. No one will ever be happy. Ever. They’ll complain regardless. Which is why the devs should just stick to their own guns and try and knock it our of the park as much as they can. If they don’t, then that’s the way the ball rolls I guess. If they do, then cool.

      • Dude32

        Pretty sure if one of the developers would bring us a WW era Call of Duty game, people would still find small reasons to complain.

  • On the one hand, I’m glad they are going this route, it allows for more creativity. It also means less complaining (I think :P) if it were modern that CoD is staying the same and is stagnant.

    On the other hand, I feel it may mean another year with advanced movements. Now how these will be executed is allowing me to remain cautiously optimistic as BOIII’s movement in MP was spot on IMO. If it’s anything like AW’s though…well yeah.

    So basically, the devs are screwed either way because you’ll never be able to make everyone happy, especially with a community this big. You’ll just have to stick to your guns and knock it out the park with some great execution and acknowledge people will complain regardless.

    Stuck between a rock and a hard place I guess, and they have been for years.

  • Mark Rubin Sucks

    People need to remember that the old IW behind COD 4 and MW2 are long gone and the current team along with the developers of the old Tony Hawk games are the ones that brought us Ghosts. The glory days a long gone and we are going to be left with a game that doesn’t represent Call of Duty and is in a saturated genre with the likes of Halo, Destiny, Mass Effect, Titanfall, Star Citizen, Battlefront, Unreal Tournament and a shedload of other titles. It’ll be dead on arrival and if the Cod community had the balls; they’d stop moaning and go play a proper military game like the Battlefield series.

    I also saw a rumour that suggested the MP would be about ‘3D space and planetary battles’ where players could ‘float’ and perform off the ground. If this is true; IW has failed once again meaning all the developers in this three year cycle can’t deliver to save their lives.

  • Daniel Lask

    Just because it may be set in the future and in space, doesn’t mean its gonna be super futuristic and gonna have robots fighting metal men. Say in this game, the antagonist creates a nuclear EMP that wipes out all technology permanently, the soldiers have to make do with ww2 style weapons and tactics. You never know guys, don’t judge something before you even see it

    • Mark Rubin Sucks

      If an EMP strike occured; why would people need WW2 weapons? Most modern ones these days wouldn’t even be obsolete. You’re clutching at straws as this will be a far future title with far future material and they wont do something as outrageous as have such a crazy setting with people still using guns from the 1920’s from 300 years previous.

      • Daniel Lask

        All I’m trying to say is you never know. People hated the ides of a futuristic BO3 but as soon as people played it, they liked it.

        • Mark Rubin Sucks

          I and many others hated BO3 just like Advanced Warfare and Ghosts. BO3 is by far the weakest game Treyarch have done and many are tired of these futuristic titles but as usual; developers don’t care and they just want to appeal to the younger gamers who’s parents give them money for supply drops.

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      If that were the case, how would they get into space with no form of communication. Plus, an EMP fries Engines, again, how would they get into space?Pfft please.

  • Vikerii

    I think some of the problem is we’re all chasing the dragon. Searching for that same feeling we got the first time we played COD, no matter which version that was. That “first” feeling will never be recreatable. Having said that, it seems like these developers are just throwing random ideas to the wall and seeing what sticks.

    • CoDforever

      ” it seems like these developers are just throwing random ideas to the wall and seeing what sticks.”

      You cant blame them, ghosts got undeniably the most hate for being the same old same old

  • On the actual article though, Keshav raises many valid points. And in essence, it comes down to the fact that you’ll never make everyone happy, particularly with a community this big. You do one thing, one group of people will be pissed off. You do a different thing, another group will get pissed off. It’s like whack-a-mole, and it encapsulates the idea I’ve been saying is that the developers truly are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    So the best thing I can say is let’s hope they knock it out of the park and execute the setting and gameplay in a memorable way.

  • Jay Evan

    The Call of Duty community is like the Tumblr of fanbases. Double standard assholes that cry when they don’t get exactly what they want.

    • Devin Wolfe

      LULZ

  • Run another poll and you will see what the community wants. Every one
    that I have seen to date through Twitter or websites like this the
    community has always voted for either a return to an actual war era or
    to NOT include any kind of advanced movement system.

    The problem here is IW/ACTI is taking the harsh criticism from the media outlets and changing the game based on that – but these media outlets don’t necessarily represent the normal COD player base. Sure they have to review the games because they are a game media outlet and that is their job. It’s COD – the biggest AAA game on the market – they can’t pass on reviewing it. So to them reviewing the “same old Call of Duty” that they played exactly a year ago when they reviewed the previous one IT WILL BE BORING – IT WILL BE THE SAME – AND THEY WILL BASH IT. But that doesn’t matter because these media outlets don’t actually play the game the way we – the community – plays the game.

    The media can review a new style of COD, love it and praise it for being different; but that is what they are looking for. The game to change and evolve into something awesome and new. The REAL players however are – for the most part – looking for the same formula that made this game awesome to start with. The same game mechanics, the raw gun play and fun competitive game modes and just to enjoy the game without all this extra BS that has made the game so bloated and convoluted it is today.

  • ScOott

    What a complete bulshit article! No one asked for the movment to be changed, we asked for smaller maps and longer ttk.. Where the fuck did they get “ahh they must want to go to space and kill each other”..

    Gaming reveiwers are cancerous to the gaming community, the guy who wrote his reveiw probably doesn’t give a Shit about Cod, its just a game he’d being paid to reveiw, and of corse to him it’s going to be the same.. But that’s the point! U ain’t going to take a game of fifa or nba to space to make it different.. It’s a joke.

    • Even if players did ask for change, we never ask for ridiculous changes like “uhhh let’s take them to space!!! Or EXO SUITS!!!! SO CREATIVE”

      • ScOott

        Lol.. Yep, I’m really hoping we can look back at this and say we was worried for nothing but I doubt it..

        • Kyle Soule

          At first the futuristic setting seemed pretty good but it is just getting old now. Hopefully this is the last one for a while. I think the space idea is just going a little too far and I can see that getting old really fast too.

          • Devin Wolfe

            >Old
            >2 games

            LULZ.

          • Kyle Soule

            Wait what?

          • Devin Wolfe

            >This future setting is getting old
            >Only 2 truly futuristic CODs

            What’s not to get?

          • Kyle Soule

            It just didn’t make sense to me the way it was written and last, there are three futuristic cods: bo2, bo3 and aw.

    • GFY

      The point is people were complaining every year with basically the same experience. This was the developers attempt at change. Not saying it’s right or wrong, just stating facts.

      • Chocobooo!

        Did you even read the article @disqus_C2tLIIb3kr:disqus? If not, then read what GFY said.

        • ScOott

          Yes? Ur point? did u not read my response to the article? Because I belive to pretty accurate..

    • kyle geralder

      you sir are amazing so true

    • Keshav Bhat

      How’s it bullshit? Did you ever read the comments on Ghosts related stuff or tweets to IW on Ghosts by FANS? They hated it the game. This is not FIFA. You obviously cannot take FIFA to space because soccer is not in space. But Call of Duty is a first person shooter. And it can become anything the developers want it too be. It’s their game, their vision.

      It’s much easier to create a future then rewrite past history.

      • Wraith

        “It’s their game, their vision.” Exactly. Call of Duty, a WWII shooter, is now set in the future where everyone is half cyborg blasting away. Quite a stretch don’t you say. Soccer is not in space? Hell, then infantry warfare is DEFINITELY not waged by cybernetic-fused super soldiers in space. Maybe next year EA could put FIFA in space, you never know. Earth’s greatest players playing an intergalactic tournament against other planets ouuuhhhh. You may think, wow, they’re already an established franchise with a history of recreating modern soccer, well to a lesser extreme you could have said the same about CoD before IW took it to another level, changing both the time period AND the gameplay to support it. Same with Sledgehammer and AW, except they failed due to being unable to nail the latter.

        • CoDforever

          If your gonna blame the newer games for going off the rails since WW2, than blame cod4 for being the game that showed Activision that COD doesnt have to be in the same time period all the time.

          • Wraith

            Never said it was a problem. But if they’re going to change all these things, then they need to introduce the right mechanics alongside them so the community actually gets that “good gameplay” they feel has been missing.

      • ScOott

        Ur full of shit, u will defend the next CoD no matter what, unless u have been living under a rock when ghosts was out? Everyone hated it for the huge maps and the super super quick ttk they were the two main issues..

        And like I said reviews will be the death of cod if they carry on listing to them, the reviewers don’t care about Cod they want to see it change so they can write something about it other than than “it’s the same”

        All people want is a boots on ground game like it used to be how hard is that to understand..

        U do not look at the two main issues and decide u know what it instead of fixing the issues people had with ghosts we will take it to space and just mix everything up.. They are bound to love that.. No!

        • Keshav Bhat

          I am not kidding you. People hated the maps, hated the TTK, hated the color scheme, asked for “something new” and not this same old crap. That’s what I saw from fans and press alike for the entire year of Ghosts post launch.

          If you don’t like the futuristic stuff, then you do not have to play it! Play what you like. If IW’s going to space this year, I am all about giving it a chance. You do not know a single thing about if its good or not till you see/play it.

          • CoDforever

            I would also like to add that at the ending of Extinction, the world blew up and everyone left to another planet .. so space is very much possible.

            Also even if its space we dont know if its gonna be boots on the ground or not. Star wars Battlefront was 90% boots on the ground.

          • ScOott

            I’ve replied to Codforever, but I can’t belive ur a bigger enough cod fan to make website about Cod and be cool with the direction cod is going in…

            Im not saying it’s going to be shit, I’m just saying it’s not looking promosing..

        • CoDforever

          As much as well all want boots on the ground, keshav is not lying. Hes been at the center of the cod community for many years so he knows what hes talking about when ghosts recieved the most hate for being the exact same game. Its literally the community’s fault that the devs are balls deep in some new shit every year. Nobody during ghosts said “OMG I wish they made the exact same game next year, and the year after that too!” No. They asked for something drastically different. As I said again, the reason we have all this jetpacking nonsense is partly due to the community.

          COD space warfare is not the cod we want, but its the cod we deserve.

          • ScOott

            U clearly have no clue either, no one on the Cod forums were saying ghosts is the same that’s why they hate it, it was all about the ttk and big maps that drove people away..

            The people who ur talking about are the Cod haters the people who hated cod, the guys on YouTube the guys who don’t give a shit, the guy that says ” it’s the same every year” that guy doesn’t even play cod any more and no matter what they do will never go back to the game..

            Thats the guy the developers are listninig to, and we deserve it? What a fecking retarded statement..

          • CoDforever

            There was definitely a demand for something different for COD that didnt just start from ghosts, especially during the Mw3 era there was nothing but hate for the game doing the same thing every year, I even remember all the trailers getting so many dislikes because they just copied and pasted their last game, even Vonderhaar made a small video about how everyone was mad at him for “copy pasting your last game” To say that the COD community never asked for change is quite bizarre.

            btw the people that are on cod forums are people that actually take this game seriously and are actual games

            I say that because majority of COD players are Average Joes that play 2 hours a weeks after coming home from work while drinking beer and will probably buy anything this franchise produces.

  • Eddie Tupy

    people dont know what they want. they want other people like journalists to tell them what to like.

  • jacopo

    I hope

  • Dangelo95

    i hope IW can atleast make the game fun like I can’t say I’m excited hopefully some gameplay can get me on the bandwagon but IW couldn’t just scrape their year in a half of work and now I fear it will be the same thing next year I think sledgehammer is making AW 2 cause people didn’t start to really hate Exos til about 6 months into AW which means SH already started development so that means we may not see a classic cod til 3arch 2018

  • Bengal Tigger

    Pfff CI back at it again with the stupidity of thinking it’s not ghosts 2

    • Keshav Bhat

      Is this serious comment or troll?

  • ccrows

    Welp, let’s see if IW is confident enough to make a demo for this game…

  • Guest

    I see Activision are not appearing at E3 this year which suggests they are embarrassed by their games like Destiny’s new content and the new Call of Duty. Could be the biggest sign yet that this game will flop harder than Ghosts.

  • Mick

    We can only hope for the best. Honestly, my biggest gripe with ghosts was the killstreaks and the big size maps. I want MW2/3 streaks again. Harrier, Chopper Gunner, Nuke, Osprey Gunner, Predator missle, I can go on and on. The maps were something different, but just not well received. I just hope that they consider this.

  • Reggaetonix

    What I dont understand. IW is well know for the MW series. Let them build on that. There are already 2 development studios working on COD titles with a future setting. Thats Treyarch and Sledgehammer. Black ops 3 and AW… Let one studio focus on normal boots on the ground warfare… Too keep the game fresh every year… Not all cod games have to be Futuristic… 🙁

    • Keshav Bhat

      The old IW is known for MW series. MW3 was the start of the rebuild of IW, Ghosts was a glimpse of new IW, and this year is new IW that merged with Neversoft.

  • Diego Diniz

    @InfinityWard We are begging you…NO SCI-FI NOOOOOOO!!! We dont like that Star Wars “pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew (Laser Shit!)”…

    • Devin Wolfe

      Quit being a bitch.

  • Ak74u

    I don’t think people disliked ghosts because it wasn’t innovative and new. It was different and definitely innovative to me especially with the sliding. I’ll state the points clearly why ghosts wasn’t so popular.

    1. At the time ghosts released it was made for both last gen and current gen consoles. Not many people experienced the game on next gen so they got a lower quality experience and thought the game looked bad as it was ment for the current gen consoles.

    2. For some reason the base maps that came with the game really lacked in color mostly looking grey and dull which wasn’t very appealing but although I didn’t buy the map packs I heard they were nice and beautiful looking and maybe the DLC of all time

    3. The killstreaks weren’t that great they were mostly ground streaks when people better enjoyed Arial streaks such as the chopper gunner, AC-130 the loadstar, those were amazing and ghosts lacked on Arial streaks. The best streak In ghosts was the support squad mate and the martyrdog which only helped after death

    Ghosts wasn’t a bad game it was just a transition period from last gen to current gen and most people didn’t get the full experience because at the time it was released consoles were expensive and many didn’t have money to buy the new consoles. So they didn’t get the full exoerince. A year later I played it on ps4 and xbox one and I thought it looked much better and a better experience and I disliked it on old gen

    • Tuby

      Dont forget the slow past of the game and much Big maps (dlc was great). The maps did not fit with the past of the game.

  • Imventing

    lmaoo, this might be the first year i don’t buy cod since cod 4. fuck it.

  • Space Call of Duty lol. This idea shit and stupid. Call of Duty use to be about war. Not a science fiction game. Going futuristic each game is a lazy way of saying “uhh they’re doing something new!” no. Futuristic games are overplayed, and just overdone now. I want Call of Duty back to its roots.

  • GFY

    I liked (preferred) the old COD’s. But the community spoke and many wanted change (I’m aware others like myself didn’t). Now that they have it they are like a petulant child throwing tantrums. I completely skipped AW because it looked garbage (that seems to be the general consensus). BO3 is fun imo and Treyarch did a good job not going over the top with the movement system. From the gameplay I’ve watched, this is what broke AW – multiplayer was based around being able to jump shot (aka those with a scuf win most battles). In BO3 it’s not nearly at critical to jumpshot. Seeing how we’re not getting boots on the ground any time soon, I hope that IW can at least build upon the movement framework Treyarch developed (in a good way).

  • jason

    ok so if cod is futuristic or modern time just hope at least activision dont add p2w feature i swear its the stupidest thing I’ve seen and I understand its for the money but its ruining the fanbase i bought every single cod yes that means ghost,aw and bo3 but im not buying the newest cod until p2w is done for good.

  • If it’s a space COD I actually wouldn’t mind it. CoD has been going Sci-fi since black ops 2, at the time it came out it was kinda Sci-fi, so a space CoD will be cool. I remember way back when there’s was a concept for Future Warfare with a astronaut holding a ray gun. I don’t know if that was Infinity Ward or Treyarch just mini teasing Moon on Black Ops 1

    • MichiganerE

      Yeah, I remember back in 2009 when there was rumors about Future Warfare being IW’s next game after CoD 4.

  • k5berry

    These are some good points I honestly didn’t take into consideration. Obviously they knew SHG and Treyarch would be making futuristic titles, but I didn’t think about how they didn’t know people would be burnt out from high-tech and futuristic stuff. I guess it’s just a debate over whether or not making a sci-fi space CoD us a bit too much. Personally I’m very weary of it, but I’ll definitely give i a shot. I just don’t think other fans are going to be very forgiving.

    • Batman

      Dont you see the pattern? Actvision told all 3 to go futuristic

  • Trinityvitaliaty

    The criticism that arose upon the release of Ghost was “they copy and paste every year” there is no significant change” and “titanfall has reveloutionary movement,why can’t COD?” CI is spot on here.We as a community need to be careful what we wish for.Let’s all admit(myself included)we say we wan’t one thing and we get that and then we say we prefer the contrary. COD can’t win:we have adopted this peculiar impossible standard where we reject a classic take or revolutionary take on COD and they assume we actually know what we wan’t.

  • Name

    i mean i don’t care as long as it’s fun and there’s a lot of content to unlock, never really liked any infinity ward games all that much except cod4 so i hope they step it with some cool stuff

  • Diego Diniz

    Sorry my bad english cause i’m brazilian, but COD is COD. We will do a GREAT marketing, put Eminem, Snoop Dog, Megan Fox, make Live Action Trailers, Teasers, Gameplays and in the end…WE WILL BUY IT! I will buy it…
    But we all know COD Community is asking for a “Boots on the ground” Call of Duty again and in my oppinion COD 2016 must be MODERN WARFARE. Sci-Fi and all of that “pew pew pew” Lasers is a pain in the ass!!! Vide Star Warts Battlefront…NOBODY PLAYS THAT CRAP ANYMORE!
    We Do NOT Like “PEW PEW”…we like “BOOM BOOM” !!! You feel me??

  • TheHorror

    There’s a good chance that this is going to be my last COD game, unless IW somehow pulls something out of their ass to make the game great. Im just so fucking tired of how the Call Of Duty franchise has been over the past 3 years. Especially as of late with this Supply Drop era we’re in. I would rather take a Ghosts sequel any day over some space warfare bullshit.

  • se7enX89X

    This year will be the final nail in the coffin, especially considering sledgehammer is next up to bat next year, cod is probably going to die all because of greed and incompetence from the developers and Activision…

  • DEMOLITION12

      IDK Why…MW2 was colorful and Ghosts was Grey!

      • Donald Trump

        Its supposed to be a war game and not a cartoon

        • Wraith

          Did you forget that real-life has more than 3 colors? You even said it right in your comment. It’s a game. Games need color, games need to appeal to our eyes. This is CoD, Fans don’t buy it so they can admire the brown and grey background.

          • Bob Saget

            I don’t mind colors I just don’t want it looking LIke BO3

  • snake56

    If the next CoD takes place in a distant future in space, it means that the people at Infinity Ward finally listened and are taking a risk for the first time since… MW1.

  • Kyle Soule

    Good article Keshav, good article.

  • Mario Rivera

    I just cant stand that alot of the feedback determining the changes in cod come from people that dnt understand the game or ask for things just to complain about it as soon as they get it. Because of this, we end up with space shooters for 3 years in a row instead of a enhanced, BS free version of what made us fall in love in the series in the 1st place. small to medium maps, good weapons that all have a feature or combination of features that make them stand out against everything else, good streaks that range between 400 and 1500 points, finally integrate all of the welcomed evolutions into the same game until u can think of something even better to replace them (pick12 from ghosts, scorestreaks/anti panic knife system from 3arch, specialist, assualt and a balanced support package that is actually SUPPORT BASED and doesnt outclass stuff from the assault package like sam turrets, ammo crates instead of ballistic vests, oracles, advanced uav, stealth bombers and juggs. Do away with with BS that is just designed to cater to the types of people that annoy veterans and drive away newcomers year after year like noob tubes, all forms of claymores/target finders, motion/heartbeat sensors, etc. Theres so many things you guys can do to improve the classic experience before becoming a clone of all the shooters we pass up on! We already have tons of futuristic fps games like halo, titanfall and destiny so stop it with this fucking identity crisis and focus on being a better version of the fast paced, straight forward arcade but relate-able experience we have poured billions into!

  • Tuby

    No preorder for me this year. I love bo 3 but please give us also boots on the ground. I didnt Mind a modern warfare 4 ,with good grapics.

  • Achilles

    Sorry, completely disagree with this article. People didn’t dislike Ghosts because it was the same as old titles, they disliked it for the huge flaws it had and Infinity Wards sheer lack of support.

    Some say the bomb glitch is still going…

    Also, how many COD players honestly trust IGN/Polygon and others to give reliable reviews for these games?

    • Tuby

      I did not like ghost due the slow past of the game with several huge maps

    • Bubblychief

      The only problem with ghost was that the maps were to big and a glitch here and there. A lot of people complain about the ttk is WAY to fast, but drift0r tested it against black ops 2, and the ttk ended up being almost identical. The reason you died so fast was because the hit detection wasn’t complete garbage like it was in black ops 2.

      • djml9

        And this is precisely why Ghosts is one of my favorite CoD’s. You could actually hit stuff. I tried going back to BO2 after playing Ghosts for a while and it was unplayable. I had to get used to it again though in AW because Ghosts became a ghost town (no pun intended).

    • RdJokr

      So lack of creativity and innovation isn’t a flaw then? This reviewer thinks that it is: http://www.engadget.com/2013/11/05/call-of-duty-ghosts-ps4-review-g794d21b/

  • Liam

    People complained cod was the “same” every year but it “was the same” every year because it did well. When you compare cod from past to present you think it was great and now it’s shit. It’s changed because everyone moaned that it’s was the same but the people that moaned it was the same didn’t understand cod.

    • Devin Wolfe

      It got better would rather COD change than become like Mario.

      • Bubblychief

        • Devin Wolfe

          Maybe you should stop talking in the echo chamber.

  • Dennis Pearson

    I don’t care if they call it ghost or not as long as there’s no DLC guns in supply drops

  • TheHorror

    Also, I call bullshit on this article. You would think that Activision and IW would want to try to cater to the more hard-core players, by keeping COD at its roots. I say that because those are the people who are going to funnel money into DLC/the inevitable Supply Drops. To focus purely on “innovation” by making a stupid fucking space shooter in order to please the press is asinine.

    • Devin Wolfe

      The “hardcore” players don’t need a voice in this because they are too jaded to the past.

    • Tommy Ledge

      Two facts.. First: these ‘HC’ players are the same ones that complained that Cod needed to change. And Second: these ‘hard-core’ players are greatly out-numbered now. Call of Duty sells nearly 1/4 of all copies to first-time buyers, so if you go back to just AW, that means that that potentially almost HALF of the players that bought BO3 never even played BO2.. So, in actuality, the HC player population less than 50% at best. And the only reason it doesn’t seem that way is because only the HC population are the only ones that follow the game seriously enough to post comments on YT videos, forums or articles like this one. Meaning, you only ever hear from that <50% every time you read or hear something because they are the only ones talking. And if you don't believe that, just LOOK at the comment sections to ever piece of content that comes out.. you will see the SAME people over and over and over and over..

      • TheHorror

        True, but that doesn’t change the fact that the HC players are the ones who are going to dump hundreds of dollars into a pay wall to get the DLC. If I’m not mistaken, the ASDs of AW made more money than the actual sales of the game. I have a feeling that if the next IW game was MW4 or a WW2 shooter, all of the HC players would pay out the ass when it comes to the next supply drop system.

    The press response is generally pretty similar to fan response, and far-future space warfare is the OPPOSITE of what the vast majority of fans want. The fans are really tired of future warfare, they want another MW game or even a WW2 game. The decision wouldn’t make any sense, but Activision is known for doing things that don’t make sense…

    • Devin Wolfe

    i think WHAT IF he wrong and they are making a ww2 game everybody will be happy right until they do what 3arch did with the cod points and add the stupid dancing stuff then evrybody will start camplaning again there always going to be something to complain about

    • Devin Wolfe

      Very few would be happy and it would sale very little at which point they would never make another “MUH BOOTS ON GROUND” COD again which would tickle me pink as I love to hear all the man children bitch about nothing.

  • dust&cheese

    if they did a survey im sure at least 70% of people want a COD based in the past; 1920-1970. all this future crap man I haven’t been excited about a COD since black ops 1. each year these come out and yeah they look fun but that excitement has been terribly diluted by regurgitated ideas and micro transactions. since IW hasn’t made a COD from the past yet, i don’t see it happening. I think this might be the year the COD community starts to fracture.

    • Devin Wolfe

      >2 future CODS
      >Regurgitated ideas

      Do you even believe your own bullshit?

      And no 70% of the people wouldn’t want a past COD only the vocal 15% would while the vocal 20% would want one in modern times.

      • Wraith

        Agreed, Plus, a WWII CoD won’t sell well. How many of the long-time veterans are left and how many returning players will there be? Not enough to profit. Those people that come and comment about how they haven’t loved CoD since WaW or whatever still care about the franchise, still are part of the community, this WWII CoD won’t bring in new players which is what they need more than ever. If we take a look outside of this community, the only thing we’ll probably hear in response to the WWII CoD is, “Wow, CoD went from innovativing a tiny bit every year, to copy-pasting every year, and now they’re just going in reverse, heehaw 5.9 – too much cancer IGN.”

      • dust&cheese

        just because it’s based in the future doesn’t mean those ideas haven’t been done before /numsicle

          • dust&cheese

            are you telling me that jetpacks, wall running, and map design are all exempt from the category of regurgitated bad ideas? how about the garbage storylines that all end in post apocalyptic/verge of worlds? bruh you’re blinded by the ‘customization’ and new skins the games get. It’s all the same shit. Until they put the boots on the ground and make a COD that most people won’t be sick of 4 months in, I’m out. & you’re using the term ‘vocal minority’ as if that makes sense. all my friends that I’ve talked to have said the same and want the same thing. they aren’t posting about it online but that’s how they feel. the people who take the time to review and put their thoughts about the game online are bigger fans than the casual player ANY DAY. The next COD will be the same future shit. Probably some moon combat [which could be entertaining] but this will further the series into the rabbit hole which is future garbage.

I mean it happened the last 2 years so that’s a real out there idea… For me, this guy’s previously leaks don’t have enough depth to deem him creditable. However I’m not saying he is wrong. Think back to AW’s first leaks. People saw the exos and assumed they were just on campaign but we were shocked when it turned out MP also had them. What’s to say that we’re not hit with the reverse this year and the campaigns futuristic mechanics don’t cross over to MP? Or on the flip side, why does future always mean new movement system? The future is whatever the devs/writers want it to be obviously as it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe in this version of the future we do go to space and we do fight on over planets but maybe the human race didn’t decide that soldiers needed to fly about everywhere with exos and jetpacks…

    But back to my original point, this quite easily be bs and we get mw4. Drama averted.

  • Wraith

    Everyone take a long hard think about this. Ahem, what exactly, I mean EXACTLY, do you feel is wrong with the new movement. AW I understand, since you were allowed unlimited high-speed dashes and gave you cheap ways of avoiding deaths you clearly deserved. But BO3? A limit to your boosting, a cooldown, slower boosting, couldn’t change direction or move up and down while wallrunning? I don’t see anything wrong here. Hell, if you’re caught boosting, you’re at a disadvantage, a fair tradeoff for the ability to me.

      AW did had cooldowns on the boosting not as large as BO3 but they where there and you could put yourself in a shitty spot if you boosted wrong.

    Call of Duty : Halo Warfare here’s the title

    Whatever the setting, Supply Drops will just kill it for me. CoD changed forever when Acti acquired Candy Crush’s King. FML

  • Plot twist, its actually a ww2 game, because earth is in Space.

    if a game is remotely realistic.. people are going to be camping left and right. if you were in a gun fight to the death you would camp. but every cod lobby ever is plagued by people crying everytime they get killed by a camper. runnin like a chicken with its head cut off around the map will never be realistic but that seems to be the only moral way to play any fps game according to all these blowhards in cod lobbies

    Okay so I get how we got to the place of new ideas… Which I was never a fan of going away from classic COD. I mean Halo is the same every year and every year they gave their fans the same game they loved. Why should COD do anything different? With all that said I still ask, how did we get to space? Really??? Space? For warfare??? Please just wake me up when we get back to boots on the ground (even if they have the ability to chain together realistic movement… For example free running), realistic weapons, and realistic war torn environments (not all these theme parks, skate parks, and definitely no fighting on the moon).

    So are they really about to make another trash futuristic COD?

  • FUTURECODSUCKZ

    Don’t know why infinity ward can’t be the first to make a good decision and realize futuristic warfare games suck dick

    So it’s the critics that ruined the game for us.

  • joey

    i loved advanced warfare, i appreciate many, many aspects of bo3, and i’m really looking forward to space cod. criticisms pop into my mind all the time, but i’m not about to let that overshadow all the things about these games that i enjoy. value-wise, come on! serious players dedicate upwards of forty days per year (!) to these games, and pay less than some poor shlub spends on a single night out.

    that said, a vietnam game? yes, please. a game that has different complementary generations of combat – old west/civil war maps, ww2 maps, ww…9 maps, each with their own weapons, class setups? yiiiiiiiiiiish.

      *single night out OR about fifteen minutes at a strip club, and that’s assuming you don’t get roofied and robbed in the champagne room.

  • Quoasis

    I know that an Activision studio is working on COD4 remastered separately to COD2016 so I think I’ll just wait for that.

    I really don’t think it was too late, it takes like 5 minutes to change the jump height, the bigger task would have been adjusting the maps now with more ladders/stairs and lowering some buildings, which would have taken a few days per map, why don’t the remaster cod4/mw2/mw3 online all into one disc. Couldn’t be much bigger than gta5, which is at like 65gb these days lol
