Call of Duty 2017 will be the next installment in the Call of Duty series, due to announcement sometime in around a month or so.

 

What do we know so far?

It will be developed by Sledgehammer Games

Sledgehammer_gameslogo.png

Since 2014, Call of Duty has now 3 main developers in rotation releasing a game each 3 years. It is now 2017,Sledgehammer Games' turn.

 

"We’re coming out of Advanced Warfare very proud of what that game is and what it means to fans, but we’re also listening closely to what fans want and ideas about how to continue that going forward, so yeah, everything is on the table."
— Michael Condrey

 

It most likely won't be futuristic themed

Antivision has stated that CoD will "return to the roots" so it's likely that the game will take place in a modern setting or a past/historical setting.

 

Vietnam?

Before working on Advanced Warfare, Sledgehammer was actually working on a Vietnam themed CoD. However development stopped because they were called to assist Infinity Ward as there were some internal conflicts between Activision and IW at that time. But in 2014 they announced Advanced Warfare which is very different. They may return to the Vietnam idea soon.

 

Possible features

 

During an interview on February 7th, 2015, Michael Condrey talked briefly about the many ideas that Sledgehammer was toying around with for their next Call of Duty installment, saying that the team had "talked about new ways to play" and that these things could range from features such as "branching story-lines or third person mode or crazy changes to the multiplayer".

He also indicated that there was interest in having a female Call of Duty protagonist
 

If Sledgehammer Games do deliver on their promises, they might be the best CoD developer.

====

Advanced Warfare criticism=

On the talk of Sledgehammer Games, let's talk about CoD: Advanced Warfare.

 

I think the game is alright, they've hit some rights and wrongs. Having exo abilities made many people hate the game. This was also the first CoD to feature Supply Drops, another unwelcome addition.

Let's talk about the story. I think they're playing it relatively safe with AW. It has likable characters and a good villain. The story is somewhat shallow and is kind of cliched as you can see the plot twist from a mile away. They did the old tradition where the main character did not speak during gameplay but he speaks during cutscenes. I think this is a shame because if they made Mitchell speak in the gameplay it would make the character so much better. I particularly liked how he narrates the cutscenes with well-written monologues, different from those in MW.

Looking back at the graphics of the last 3 CODs, I think AW still has better graphics than BO3 and IW. I can also run it at medium-high on my PC and it still looks good + runs pretty okay, it's pretty optimized. I would say it looks as good and as optimized as the BF games

If anybody still believes that it actually takes them three years to develop each CoD, contact me. I have a bridge to sell you.

As dope as a Vietnam era game sounds, I refuse to continue giving the COD franchise money. Hopefully they don't f*ck this up, but they probably will.

Well it's the same story every year, isn't it? Every year they tell us how much they thought about doing something new, and cool and unique and how it's going to be amazing and exciting and new. And then they show us how the freakin' fish move away from you when you swim like it's some revolutionary new tech. It's all talk and no substance. It's been that way since Modern Warfare 2.

Indeed. I stopped buying these after Ghosts but the franchise was in trouble well before that. I was gifted Black Ops 3 and man was I glad I didn't pay for it.

Not too much hope for a non-futuristic CoD.

Yeah, plenty of other games can have more success with a pre-modern setting at this point. CoD had its run, I don't have that much faith in the series with how much its been milked. I'm surprised it hasn't completely died off yet...

Don't care about Sledgehammer nor Infinity Ward. Only interested in Treyarch COD games for now

The funny thing is people didn't want them to change the setting to "do something new" but rather change the gameplay. Every single COD feels the same mechanic wise, just with wall running and the likes for the past 3 games.

Really, if they could go back to what treyarch was doing with world at war and then skip on the unrealistic futuristic movie bullsh*t, i might like it.

 

But yea...really....f*cking tired of those fictive weapons and plots that are just way to far fetched.

 

Not to mention their overall general way of how things works need some insane refreshing of ideas.

 

Not really feeling a lot of hope for this one, i am simply guessing it will be an other cod 1.1.1.1 game with more futuristic sh*t no matter what their current statements are.

I think they will go back to the Cod 4 or maybe make WAW 2 but that wouldn't be enough. The whole gameplay is getting tired. Maps are getting smaller and the game is abusing supply drops. I would be fine with microtransactions if the maps were free but they are not and that is bad even for those that buy the maps. Less people play them an many times they become ghost towns. 

 

I wish they would put more effort into level design in SP and make it more like the first couple. They were really imersive while not having the movie type scripted events and were more fun to replay, they were also smart in making unique levels like the one where you play as the russians and have to find a weapon from a dead comrade or enemy since you were deployed with out one because they couldn't produce many weapons.

It's insane to me how fickle the public opinion on CoD is. I don't know if anyone else remembers but people were calling CoD milked and the same old, same old ever since Modern Warfare 2 [which I still consider a bad game as a whole] and crying out for future settings and a change. Fast forward almost a decade later and Modern Warfare 2 is suddenly a solid classic, the last good CoD and the series needs to go back to grounded, modern warfare or find its ''roots''.

 

You can't win. Its a vicious cycle. I just hope they do whatever the hell they want and don't cave into public pressure or do something as dumb as making a third person game.

Don't care...i still feel like mw2 was overall crap, bo2 had an interesting campaign, black ops 1 was boring overall except for zombies and mw3 was boring to. :p

Honestly, if there is one thing that is going pretty well forward it is how the maps kinda became a bit interactive.

Further...scripted story midsions...they are not more scripted then before...the thing is...they are just the same sh*t...which is bad.

They should trow some smarter enemy AI in it, buff the lethality of...anything, actually make supresssive fire a thing...get more basic tactical sh*t involved.

For an example i feel they were pretty good at bringing in the chaotic sh*t, lets bring that to an other level.

Let news on the intercom spread that your comander is dead while you are just blowing something up and getting surendered by enemies...you then get actual options...that is one thing BO 3 did really well.
Further i feel there is a lack of overall conflicts in the team/groups you are in ever since cod4....shame.
The bad things meant to shock people...they need to be brought in more plentyfull.
The old perks system in MP...needs a revamp ASAP.
Last team standing perk should in a way be brought back by automaticly dropping players in that mode once they are shot in the leg to much in a short period of time, being of the radar when an UAV is online should be a thing if you are not making sounds and are out of sight from the drone flying around, from the start already you should have the option to carry 2 main guns, but each gun among with the option to carry a sertain amount of extra ammo should slow you down...same for wearing extra armor or extra equipment like mines.
Weapons should have more character....the SVD...if implementing that for an example should standard have the capability to use the scope and the iron sights...but beyond that have a quite limited customisation, just like the real thing while something like an modern m16 should have loads of options.
Try to pull of some things even if they would make players mad like slowing down the reloading of rocket launchers a lot, removing quickscoping, slowing down the rate of looking trough a scope and actually seeing things...or at least with snipers, give it some short animation to zero in the crosshairs, buff shotguns a lot in regards to damage, make aiming propperly trough an high magnification optic insanely hard while walking or when standing in the open, make it possible to use objects as support for rifles and mg's...

And ramblerambleramble...:p

We're few and far now a days. It was the consensus back in the day, i'd like to say it was around 2011 that the nostalgia goggles and rose tinted glasses took over.

I usually enjoy the campaign of CoDs but never consider myself a fan as I think it's geared towards the bro-gaming end of gaming. It's almost the sports of gaming where it's all competitive online stuff. I still want to check out Infinite Warfare and will pick up the CoDs I missed out on over the years on this gen. Think the last campaign I played was MW2.

We have already had Vietnam as a setting in Battlefield, it was a pretty good game with much propaganda floating around.

sounds about right.

somewhere along the way I totally lost interest in Call of Duty.

 

at this stage, CoD is the epitome of bro-gaming, which represents everything that sucks about modern games... that being said I'll give anything a try if it looks good. prove me wrong.

They said that they were "returning to COD's roots" in Infinite Warfare, so I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being yet another Advanced Warfare-type game. Nevertheless, if this actually ends up having a modern day/past setting then I may be interested.

Would be nice if it wasn't a futuristic theme, but i doubt they will drop the microtransactions! That is the most annoying thing about the new cod games, but the money is racking in and no way they will return to everything being unlockable by leveling up or completing challenges.

I mean, in the end the foundation for the game will end up being alright, but supply drops will end up ruining it yet again.

 

Also there's rumours of Zombies coming back for the fourth(?) year in a row now?

 

I mean, WaW-BO2 zombies was good, BO3 was just appaling imo.

 

apparently Exo Zombies was decent, but by then I just grew out of the franchise

 

and IW Zombies is just

 

something else.

 

If they add Zombies again they should do something creative with it (not IW levels of creative)

but just something other than "survive or solve the complicated story section"

three years probably results in less of a rushed mess like EA's handling with dice's battlefield

Predictable. Hopefully they actually *make* a WWII game instead of just giving us old timey guns.

BF1 had a really good campaign despite it being a WW1 reskin of a modern FPS.

Treyarch should simply make zombies a stand alone franchise...
The maps of bo2 in generally really suck though imo.
Bo1 had the best zombie maps ever.
