Forget the PlayStation 4. Forget the Xbox 720 or even the Steam Box. Wash all that nonsense from your mind because we've got some earth-shattering news to share with you. A newCall of Duty game will be launching in 2013!
Jokes aside, Activision announced today during their Q4 earnings call that a new entry in theirpredictableFPS franchise will be releasing by the end of the year. In addition, the publisher credited Skylanders,Diablo,World of Warcraft, andCall of Duty for raking in larger net revenues for 2012 than they even expected.
Activision simply cannot be stopped. TheSkylanders franchise has amassed over $1 billion in sales worldwide,DiabloIII has moved over 12 million copies, andWorld of Warcraft continues to dominate in the MMO sphere. Let's also not forget thatBlack Ops II sold a staggering $1 billion within its first fifteen days.
“As we look to 2013, we will continue to invest in our established franchises, as well as several new properties,” Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said.
With Bungie'sDestiny on the not so distant horizon, I'm sure the mega-publisher will continue to find success in the years to come.
