We have some exciting news for Call of Duty fans now, as although you are bound to be excited about the upcoming Modern Warfare 3 launch this November, it has been revealed that Treyarch’s next game may be on a next generation gaming console.
This will be welcome news for those of you who have had enough of current generation graphics featured on the PS3 or Xbox 360 and the idea of Treyarch getting the nod ahead of Infinity Ward will be seen as a victory for both the developers themselves and fans who loved their last game, Black Ops.
A new job listing by Treyarch has given away the hints about this possibility, as the company are looking for a new senior software engineer who will aid Treyarch in ”bringing our hugely successful game to a new console”, as reported from Eurogamer.
Further hints can also be seen in the listing as further responsibilities in this role specifically mention that candidates should be able to ”Adapt graphics and other major systems in our engine to a new platform.” – check out the listing in full here if you’re interested.
Considering that we usually get a new Call of Duty game each year, it would be safe to assume that the next game from Treyarch will be out in 2012. Could it be far too early to think they have a new game already in development for next generation consoles? The obvious answer would be yes, but the listing clearly states that Treyarch are looking for a recruit to bring Call of Duty to a ‘new console‘.
Of course, this could mean the likes of the PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS or even the recently announced Apple iPhone 4S. However, it could also be a huge bombshell and a early hint from Treyarch that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 is very close to an unveiling, the elusive Nintendo Wii U shouldn’t be ruled out either. What are your thoughts on this – is it too early to start thinking about COD on the PS4 and Xbox 720?
