It's likely most, if not every, next Gen engine is derived from the current Gen equivalent. It makes sense for them to build off their current tech, which is a fine engine.

I don't know, the recent ones (MW3, Black Ops 2) look substantially better than COD2...

Undoubtedly so. MW3 makes COD2 look like a previous-gen game, which (...and slightly OT) excites me, as whatever we see at E3 this year surely won't be an indication of what these systems will handle at their peak in the future.

Yeah right, a new update for their Q3 engine.

Which would actually likely be a mistake, because the Quake 3 engine has the core fundamentals that make the CoD games play so well. If they tried to replace it, they'll almost certainly fuck it up.

So this backs up the rumour from that youtube video that mentions CoD: ghosts. That also stated that this was next gen exclusive.

Activision doesn't usually advertise that CoD games use a new engine, right? I don't remember that ever being a selling point for a CoD (expect for CoD4: MW).

I'm thinking this could be a greater evolution than people expect. IW 10.0 or bust.

I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and at least try it next gen. I sunk over 50 hours into Modern Warefare 3's multiplayer for Christ's sake. In retrospect, wtf was I doing? Game is like fucking crack.

50 hours in a multiplayer game? slow down bro :p

New engine?

Dammit! Just when I was going to take a break from COD games, now I'm sucked back into it by this info alone.

Judging by this new leaked footage I'd say Tesco's is on the money with this one.

"New Engine" is like a buzzword in marketing even though all of us here know the truth. Even BF4 with Frostbite 3.0 is considered a "New Engine" when we all know it's Frostbite 2.5. To me, a "New Engine" is something made from the group up aka the transition from BF2 to BF3

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'll never be able to compete graphically with other developers as long as they continue to aim for a 60hz update if other devs aim for 30hz. On any hardware.

They just need to look like they're improving on themselves.

I accused the series to still use a technology based on id Tech III since when they talked about a "new engine" for CoD2, but in retrospect I'm glad they continued with it.
In this generation we've seen several new engines, nice stuff with nice features, wow, but when they come to the most important aspect (shoot at your enemy) some of them sucked pretty bad.

CoD has a simple but sharp and polished gameplay: the gunplay is everything.
The idea that it could be screwed because kids want to see walls collapsing is depressing.

BTW, I'm pretty curious about what will happen. :)

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.

CoD will likely NEVER use a "new" base engine. They have been iterating on the Quake 3 engine for over 10 years now. I wholly expect their Next Gen engine will be what call of duty 2 was to Call of Duty 1. i.e. a full overhaul creating IWs third generation of the CoD engine (which will then be iterated on for the remainder of the generation)

Man I just love the cynicism and hypocrisy gaf displays when games actually are 60 frames. I thought 60 frames was so important gaf?, but "lol quake 3 engine" seems to be the only thing people can come up with.

I think that its just incredible that one man has dominated the shooter genre so wholly since its inception. John Carmack is literally the Henry Ford of FPSes
