I just found out that CoD5 is going to be yet another WWII shooter. I am also dissapointed that Treyarch will be developing it. I loved CoD. When games like Finest Hour and Big Red One came out I wondered why they weren't the same caliber as the original. Then I learned about the developing changes. I personally prefer Infinity Ward's work. Whattya think?

Everyone knows that Infinity Ward is a lot better than Treyarch, including the publisher. But the publisher insists on yearly installments of CoD because the CoD franchise is a money-making machine. As Infinity Ward requires 2-3 years to develop a game, the publisher has to turn to mediocre developers like Treyarch in order to rush a game to market, while Infinity Ward works on the next installment.

No matter how bad CoD 5 is, it will sell 2 million copies on name recognition alone, which is why it is being made.

Don't worry everybody. I heard that Infinity Ward is currently working on Call of Duty 6, which is another Modern Warfare Game. It is going to be great, I heard.

As Lisa said above, Infinity Ward is working on CoD6.
This way a new CoD game can be released in the interim to
keep it fresh in everyone's mind while they work on the true
successor. I also believe that Infinity Ward is better than
Treyarch, still I hope they can improve on their CoD3.

Well count me out for COD5. I am sick of WWII shooters. I think I've played enough WWII games to last me for the rest of my life.

lol, for some reason the WWII shooters dont get old for me. Although they have been played out. I believe Inf Ward was absent on COD 3 as well. People noticed their absence too. I wish the game was a little more open and not so linear. I dont like being rushed along with squad mates, and when I figured out that once you rush the battlefield the enemies stop spawning, it kinda lost points for me. Still a great game. I rented it 4 a week and will buy when i can get it for less.

I have to admit, I think it's pretty awful what Activision is doing here, though. Having two developers tag-team a franchise is a horrible idea on so many levels (except, of course, on the economic level). Oh, well. I guess most serious gamers know that Infinity Ward makes the real CoD but it sure sucks for casual gamers who don't know that they're not getting the "real deal," so to speak.

I read this post and I thought you all had to be joking, I mean why the *%@# would they take it back to the done-to-death stage of WW2? But then I check around on the net and found you were right. I can only express a deep sadness within me, especially since the slackers behind the forgettable CoD3 are going to yet again be at the helm.
Since I was expecting another thrilling expansion on the Modern Warfare theme, it looks like I'll have to wait until CoD6 to get my quality-assured fix.

The notion that the weapons you "start" with are somehow worse is a fallacy. You get the best AR, SMG, and Sniper Rifle from like Level 4, which requires about 15 minutes of gameplay. Granted, some (most) people prefer the Red Dot Sights to the Irons, but those are easily attained. Also, the guns you unlock as you progress through the levels are mostly more difficult (with a few exceptions like P90 or Barrett) to use than the starting ones (albeit some more powerful).

If anyone is still just getting into this game, my advice would be to stick with it. It just takes a little practice and figuring out the tendencies of most players.

Thanks GemQC... I was confused about why COD5 was from a different developer but your explaination makes perfect sense. I'll still play the heck out of the upcoming COD5 but I'm really looking forward to the next Infinity Ward release (COD6?).
