Call of Duty

Unsurprisingly, Activision will be returning next year with new entries in its two most-popular franchises.

The next Call of Duty and Skylanders are both scheduled to launch in 2014. Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision, confirmed the news during the company’s latest financial results earnings call yesterday.

He said:

“Despite short-term uncertainties, as we look forward to 2014, we have a very strong product pipeline. We expect multiple new releases across our major franchises, including the first Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls, along with the PS4 version of Diablo III and significant and exciting new content for World of Warcraft.

“We also expect to launch new Call of Duty and Skylanders titles and a major new potential franchise with Bungie’s Destiny.”
