Treyarch Bringing Call Of Duty To A ‘New Console’

Treyarch Bringing Call Of Duty To A ‘New Console’

Treyarch Bringing Call Of Duty To A ‘New Console’A recruitment ad on Treyarch’s website has confirmed that the studio is in the beginning stages of bringing the Call of Duty franchise to a new console.

As initially reported by Gamespot, the ad states that the team are looking for a senior software engineer to bring their “hugely successful game to a new console”.

The language being used, in addition to a later mention in the ad referring to adapting “graphics and other major systems in our engine to a new platform”, would suggest that the game is most likely a port of some kind.

And the inference from that, if you’d forgive us some speculation, is that the game is most likely being developed for the PlayStation Vita or, at a push, the Wii U. The fact that the game appears to using current gen tech, and is most likely a port, would suggest that this isn’t a game destined for an as yet unannounced console from Microsoft or Sony.

  • Awesome. Now nobody needs to worry about missing out on whatever piece of mediocre trash Treyarch push out next.

    • That console is gonna crash and burn worse than the 3DS. It’s aiming at hard-core gamers, an audience Nintendo completely lost with the Wii, which has about 1/10th as many good games as other consoles, but tonnes of shovelware.

          • i would buy a wii u just for mario. there are actually some amazing nintendo games!

            although im not a big fan of the wii – dont really like the control scheme, i would have much preferred a standard controller- some of the games are pretty fun, i just recently bought one to play mario and the like (pretty much just mario :P)

          • Oh, and Darksiders 2, Ghost recon online, Super smash bros, Call of duty, Aliens: colonial marines, Ninja gaiden 3, Metro: last light, Dirt, Tekken, Batman: Arkham City.
            Don’t go into a battle with no prior knowledge of your competitors.

  • Vita makes sense, what with Wii U shaping up to be Nintendo’s new virtual boy.

    Well… third virtual boy, I guess :s

  • HAR HAR HAR WII U IS TRASH BECUZ I HAZ ONE AND I KNOW HOW IT WORKZ.

    Get real. Wii U has graphics superior to current gen and an innovative new control scheme that saw huge popularity with the DS.
    That being said, I would like an online handheld shooter on my 3DS/Vita.

  • This is guaranteed Vita related, I swear though, If we don’t get Infrastructure modes and Co-Op, I’ll be pissed!

  • Treyarch is a hack, who shares activisions goal of extracting every cent possible from the serious before throwing it to the dog pile. I doubt I will bother with this or mw3.

  • It’s the *takes deep breath* Wiiuxbox360ps3dsvitapcxboxgamecubeps2dspspgameboyadvancen64psxgameboygameboycoloursnesataridreamcastwhateveridontreallygiveadamnconsole.
    In other words amd cpu-powered pc

  • I’m not going to buy a fps on a portable. Also, as the Wii U will be a console, I won’t be buying a fps that I can get on PC for that either.

  • My money is on the vita. There has to be some company twitching to see if those dual thumbsticks can hold their own with a proper fps franchise. Activision love money. SO why not crank out another hacknied CoD game and take a swipe at capturing momentum/unity between the CoD franchise and mobile gamers?
    No diss to Treyarch here. I think Activision will be keen to CoDualize our mobile gaming space too. Probably couldn’t hurt.

    Although you could do some cool stuff with the wii U screen, minimap? Gyroscopic fly by wire missles? Errrm. That proximity sensor thing from Mw2?

    Even the Vita touchpad has potential for interesting application in a cod game.

  • its the psvita since nxt year the psvita gets released and that same year theirs suppose to be a new call of duty title for it i just hope that if treyarch dose it right they will bring Co-op and also a good singleplayer and multiplayer and some zombies on it as well be awsome to play and if that be the only game they release next year then i will be over the moon because every 1 bags on cod every year n it pisses me off well how about a year of no cod only for the vita then u all who dnt own a vita will come to ur senses and stop this cod sucks crap thing cause u all say it but u all enjoy playin it how u feel if their was no cod one year and u stuck playin last years cod i think only then u can really know how much u want n need cod deni it but its true every word
