Infinity Ward, developers of the Modern Warfare series, have listed a new job ad that implies that they may already be working on a next-gen Call of Duty title.
The ad calls for a senior animator who has “an interest in working with next-generation technologies”. Could this be in preparation for the PS4 or Xbox 720? Unlikely.
There are two very likely answers. First, Infinity Ward may be working on a Call of Duty title for the Wii U. Second, the “next-generation technologies” may be referring to the Playstation Vita. During CES, John Koller dropped the names of some franchises hitting Vita during an interview with GameSpot. Call of Duty was amongst those games listed.
Chances are E3 2012 will have much more to tell us and may very well hold the reveal for Call of Duty on the Vita.
