The lights are on
Could Activision be moving the next installment of the alternate-year Call of Duty from the past to the future? It looks as though we'll be parting with that tradition soon, if a teaser image and accompanying video on the game's official site is to be believed.
Details are scarce on callofduty.com, but they're slowly starting to emerge. The site is currently littered with monitors displaying a "coming soon" message. A few are filled in with static, however. If you click on one of those images, you're treated to a shot of a weaponized quadrotor drone, which links to the amusing FPS Russia video shown below.
As the host teases, the technology shown in the video is still 10 or 15 years away. He adds that it could be in the next Call of Duty game, however. Then we're treated to a series of demonstrations of the vehicle "in action." The vehicle, which is purportedly equipped with a100-round magazine and controlled with a tablet device, makes short work of a variety of targets.
We'll know more about the next Call of Duty when it's officially unveiled on May 1 during the NBA playoffs.
