Call of Duty franchise publisher Activision has confirmed that they will release a new Call of Duty title (most likely to be Modern Warfare 4) in late 2013 around the time the PlayStation 4 is expected to release. It is being said that the Modern Warfare 4 release date is causing Destiny to be delayed in release.
The fact of the matter is that Activision is giving Destiny a longer time to hibernate and be promoted for hype to build. This is the first installation of what is planned to be a massive 10 year long IP that will include multiple blockbuster releases if all goes according to plan. The game will likely rival Bungie’s past creation for the same niche and potential sales.
Bungie and Activision showed off Destiny for the PlayStation 4, Activision did not feel the need to show the next Call of Duty title at this time and they have a decent success going on with Black Ops II.
The real competitor to Modern Warfare 4 has not shown itself yet and is being developed right now by Respawn Entertainment in EA’s side of the battlefield (no pun intended). We anxiously await the announcements and releases to settle the score.
