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.

    I would *love* to see a CoD game on the Wii U. It would be glorious.

      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.

        Im getting a Wii U & so are quite a few of my friends. I guess thats because were gamers, not complainers

          Have fun with Mario.. and probably nothing else :s

            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.

          I hope you and your friends are buying 10 wiiUs each so that it doesn't crash and burn too quickly.

      Please tell how this game would be glorious on the Wii U

    They could always be referring to the iPad as a 'console'

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

    Well... third virtual boy, I guess :s

    It's 3ds, case closed

    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!

    I'd love to be sitting in a Park on a nice day playing against people around the World on my Vita.

    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.

    In other words amd cpu-powered pc

    F**K YES!!! Now I can finally play Call of Duty on my calculator!

    Well, my abacus has a lack of games (not even any EA love with Fifa). There's a captive market there.

    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
