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.

Don't think its in the future. Half the weapons the game has already won't be in use for another 10-15 years i.e assault drone, recon drone, half the guns... half of the weapons in Black Ops were NOWHERE near the time period they should be in. The G11 didn't even start construction til the 1990's!
Is that Quad-Rotor (with gun) "legal" to build?
Would hate to be on the business end of that sucker. . .
It was a CGI gadget in the video, you gullible people...
...H-...Has Call of Duty actually...
GRASPED MY ATTENTION!?
Call an ambulance.
I'm excited for this.
Oh, boy this is interesting... very interesting.
That is really intersesting! that would be really cool! and the FPS Vedio this would be amazing!
That's pretty weird! But riding on hoverboards will be the new skateboarding in the future.
They're just stealing ideas from Homefront
Still not interested
That could be cool. Though it makes me wonder, would that mean Treyarch is stepping on Infinity Ward's toes? If there's a fourth Modern Warfare, I wonder if they'll tie it in with this.
COD stealing ideas from Ghost Recon Future Solider?
Well good no more cut n paste and they better not be jacking ideas from future soldier
Ha, awesome video.
