Activision Blizzard confirmed during a conference call with investors that Call of Duty 6 will be released in 2009. Game developer Treyarch is currently working on the fifth Call of Duty game, named Call of Duty: World at War, and this game should be available in November 2008.
You wouldn't be surprised to learn that "an all-new Call of Duty" title will be released in 2009, would you? Good, because that's exactly what's going to happen, according to Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, who talked up the next Call of Duty in a post earnings release con call.
Kotick said that the publisher will "leapfrog" studios, which we'll assume to mean that, since Treyarch is hard at work on Call of Duty: World At War, that Call of Duty 4 developer Infinity Ward will be taking the reins on this one.
