//Mod Edit:

It is likely a derivative of the last engine:

New engine means updated old engine nowadays.

So is Ghosts a beginning of a new "sub-trilogy"? They wrapped up Modern Warfare, and i assume will get Treyarch to make Black Ops 3 for 2014.

Im still hyped, hoping for PS4 and Durango versions come out as well. Even if they are just souped up, ressed up versions with microscopic improvements ill still get em.

i dont expect next gen call of duty to look anywhere near as good as battlefield 4 though, its weird because when call of duty 2 came out it was mind blowing, way ahead of bf2

They're going to prioritize framerate over all else. So if Battlefield 4 is 30fps on next-gen consoles, then it will probably look better than Ghost.

I'm not sure why people find it so hard to believe that they're going to create a new engine next-gen. They had no reason to create a new one in the current-gen since their priority is framerate. It was very unliekly that they'd get the game up and running on a new engine that looked better than their old one while also running at 60fps.

Per developer, call of duty has always had a production schedule of two years starting in 2003.

Speaking of which, I wonder if they'll be doing any 10th anniversary stuff this year.

You all think there will be a new engine? I find it hard to believe since this is coming to current-gen consoles. They're not going to do anything to sacrifice 60FPS.

It could always just be further tweaks to the old engine.

At this point i'm just wondering if this is the year we see the new engine in it's full blown capacity, or next year which is the traditional way these yearly games tend to transition to a new console. Perhaps a new engine this year without the full bells and whistles, although that risks being a bit underwhelming, I guess we'll just have to wait and see :o

That's what I was expecting as well.

Maybe Black Ops 3 will be a new engine, if it's next-gen only, but I don't even see that happening. I think they'll keep it cross platform until BO3, and then that next game (Ghosts 2, I guess?) will be next-gen only.

It'll be a different version (scaled down) of MW4 on next gen. IMO.
So it'll be on a new engine most likely.

That is almost 100% certainly a product detail quote from Activision's retailer materials.

Retailers almost never write their own product descriptions.

The fact that they put "next generation engine" might make it plausible. Afterall Activision has surely started working on a new engine years ago or at least licensed a new one. They know next gen consoles were coming so eventually they had to update the game from the ground up.

They are not going to let CoD fizzle out on current gen consoles or do some half assed next gen Quake 3 engine port. They need to stay infront of the competition that is gunning for them

They may switch to a new engine but I doubt we'll see too much of a visual improvement until they totally drop the current gen versions.

It'll be as much of a 'new engine' as IW 4.0 was branded a 'new engine' by Activision.
