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.

technically modern warfare is already in the future... but a cod further in the future might be nice.
Also, that hovercraft gun, while cool, doesn't seem... smart to use in actual combat.
Can't wait! No second chance! I love these games, mostly the guns. I just got a M4 like in the game www.airsplat.com/airsoft-video-games.htm and they have a bunch of other guns from different games.
F my life. I made a bet that if this was Black Ops 2, I'd get Bioshock Infinite. The bet seems to be lost.
...I'M JUST GOING PLAY FOR THE CAMPAIGN, NOTHING MORE.
Although he said this technology wouldn't be available for another decade....I argue that he is wrong. We already have UAV's .... how hard is it to add a weapon to it? I would bet that we have them now... the only thing to fix is that loud ass motor!!
I personally think this whole new experience is definitely going to be weird. 1) This is going to be the first game out of the whole series that will have futuristic settings, vehicles, and weapons. And 2) Call of Duty (with the exception of Modern Warfare 1-3) has always been focused on historical events. So all I'm sure of is that it's definitely going to be different.
