Call of Duty Series: Rotation with Infinity Ward and Treyarch continues
You could say that Call of Duty 7 will be released in 2010. According to the first tiny pieces of information this is the case. At least it seems to be confirmed that the rotation with Infinity Ward and Treyarch will continue.
The Call of Duty series is currently handled by two Activision studios and it seems like this system will go on. Since Call of Duty 3 Infinity Ward (CoD 1, 2 and 4) is sharing the development with Treyarch (CoD 3, 5 and console spin-offs). As it is clear now that Infinity Ward is currently working on the sixth part of the Call of Duty series, which will be called Modern Warfare 2, the question arises if Treyarch will still be involved.
It appears like this can now be confirmed. David Kim from Treyarch wrote in his Linked-In profile that he is currently working as a Senior Animator on a project from Activision and Treyarch. Call of Duty 7 is even hinted at.
From those pieces of information the following scenario is build: If Activision will stick to their way of operation one Call of Duty is released every year. Treyarch had been responsible for the last part Call of Duty: Wolrd at War. Infinity Ward is currently working on Modern Warfare 2 and so Treyarch should be preparing Call of Duty 7 for late 2010.
But Treyarch isn't very popular among Call of Duty fans because of the fiasco around Call of Duty 5: World at War. Bugs in the multiplayer part and a annoying update policy fed the opposition against Treyarch.
