    Activision just published a teaser that leaves little to the imagination - Black Ops 3 is coming soon. So far very little is known about the game, but according to the teaser, more information should be released on the 26th this month.​

    There's several studios working on the games in three-year cycles. Advanced Warfare was made by Sledgehammer, Black Ops 3 is from Treyarch.

    Truly the Assassin's Creed of FPS games, and that's not something to be proud of.

    I'm yet to read one good argument that proves CoD games aren't - most people complain about the community rather than the game proper which is nonsense. CoD games are solid modern shooters, I quite enjoy them myself.

    Call of duty is just your generic shooter nowadays.

    I like how advanced warfare tried to spice things up with the exo suit though.

    Black Ops 1 and Advanced warfare are the only two call of duties I really enjoyed (maybe because I love the zombies mode??)

    AW did spice things up, and not with just the Exo suits. Smart grenades were a nice addition and I really liked the futuristic setting, it's definitely one of the best installments yet. Are the games generic shooters? Maybe, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In many ways, CoD games became trend setters and they clearly have an audience considering the sales figures. Each to their own is my opinion - I can think of worse games to play.

    The games are good quality-wise. I hate online community of this franchise. Angry 10 year old kids and cheaters is what ruins the experience, from my point of view.

    Play them with your friends then - that's what I do. If not that then mute voice chat - problem solved. Saying that a game is bad because its community is bad is like saying your steak tastes bad because the waiter was rude - one has nothing to do with the other. Activision can't wave a magic wand and change its community, their job is to release quality games that are liked by their fans and they seem to be doing just that. CoD is a butt of jokes all the time but when someone mentions that Nintendo is doing the same thing with Pokemon everyone is up in arms and offended. If the fans keep buying these games then there must be something they enjoy about them and that's the whole point of video games - entertainment. CoD games are good by the virtue of (usually) meeting the expectations of the fans and that's not an easy thing to do when you release games practically yearly.

    He actually didn't say the game was bad, only that the online community was bad because people ruined it.

    I read on one of the news sites that black ops and black ops 2 combined sold 58 million copies, that's a lot of money being made, not to mention the dlc that gets sold. Activision has it going on, not to mention that guitar hero they had for a few years. When is Activision going to release a gaming console?
