First image of the next Call of Duty unveiled

The developers of the latest Call of Duty game, Sledgehammer games, have teased an image of what the game would look like. Earlier, the studio had promised that the game would “primarily” be developed with next-gen in mind it would be “the most possible polished” product. After looking at the picture, it certainly seems as if they will fully live up to the “next-gen” hype.

The character models were shown off at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) during the “Quest for Quality” segment, with Sledgehammer’s Michael Condrey, accompanied by his fellow Glen Schofield, opening his presentation by saying, “We can’t talk at all about Call of Duty for this year. [Activision] said you can’t show anything from Call of Duty this year, and you certainly can’t show in-game rendered characters from this year’s game.”. He then gave us a split second view of two characters with a note saying “Actual in-game characters”


The shot is certainly impressive with almost a real-life feel to it. The textures, lighting and depth all look perfect but it remains to be seen if ‘actual’ graphics quality of the game will be the same as this.

Call of Duty has become an annual “cash cow” of Activision with many blaming them for providing the same thing every year with minor tweaks and improvements. This year’s installment would be developed by Sledgehammer Games after the game was moved to a three year development cycle and they join Treyarch Games and Infinity Ward as the the developers of the Call of Duty titles.

The game is expected to be launched later this year on Xbox One, Playstation 4 PC. More details are expected to be made available at this year’s E3. We’ll update you with more information as its made available.
