i hope so

for me it needs modern or 60s-90s era i liked the original BO the most for MP and campaign

thought ghost sucked AW was ok but the MP didnt feel like COD i dont like the futuristic maps or weapons

David Vonderhaar (Treyarch's lead developer) stated on twitter the other day that for his new year's resolution he wants to make something different, but still great. so what i take from that is, world war 1 and 2 have been done, future has been done (fuck the future, i agree with you fully on that), vietnam/cold war has been done, and modern has been done. so that leaves the korean war, barely been done, has never been done in call of duty. i did some research on the korean war's weapons, and after seeing the weapons i'm totally on board with a korean war call of duty. like i have goosebumps just thinking about that. i hope they make it as gory and as brutal as they can. it sounds weird but i love gory and bloody games, that's one of the reasons world at war is my favorite call of duty.

 

EDIT: The thought of next gen zombies is boner worthy. Zombie Verruckt is my favorite map because of how difficult it is, so i want treyarch to make it simple and hard. No easy train spots where people run around in circles for five hours.

IMO Blops2 has the best multiplayer out of the COD series. It's the only COD where i actually reach master prestige. And to this day i still play Blops2. like some have said here Blops3 will be huge. Hopefully they keep the same mechanics that made Blops2 so fun.

if ps4 gets the call of duty marketing deal with activision (it's been rumored, and kind of makes sense) then i can see the ps4 sales being much higher


I would love for that to happen but I don't think it will. COD has long been a Microsoft tie-in and Destiny being an Activision/Sony tie-in evens things out. Has there ever been a tie-in that has jumped ship to another console? Was Assassin's Creed originally promoted for PS3??

Black Flag was PS3/PS4 marketing i believe 



If COD became a PS4 tie-in... The software sales difference between PS4 and X1 would be drastic.

I love Black Ops 1. Its my favorite CoD. I was, imo, a beast at the MP.

Now I am enjoying Advanced Warfare, but I do look forward to the next Treyarch CoD



Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted 1, inFamous Second Son, Rocket League

It doesn't make sense business wise imo because Xbox One is going to be the market leader in the US and that's where COD makes most of it's sales. That, and XBL has and always will be the more stable network (PS4 owner here, so don't go there) which is pretty important for a game that is basically online only these days.

Oh, and those MS pockets are as deep as it gets.

GTAV has sold abou 3 times more on PS4 than on X1.

And to the guy that said X1 will be US market leader... I'm not so sure about that. It could happen, it could not. We might even have PS4 and X1 neck and neck in the US. Just because X1 outsold the PS4 for 2 months out of 12 does not mean it has won the US lol.
