The entire world is Modern Warfare 2 -crazy and Activision has been rolling in the money; this game has become the single biggest entertainment launch ever, according to yesterday's press release.

And now, if you check the last part of a recent LA Times article , it seems two teams for the mammoth Call of Duty franchise are no longer cutting it. Infinity Ward and Treyarch have been handling the duties for the past few years but it seems a third mystery team has been tapped to deliver a new CoD title. The rumors are already flying and one of them centers on the possibility of a MMO – sort of along the lines of MAG – that will undoubtedly come as great news to long-time multiplayer aficionados. In fact, if they separated things and allowed one team to produce one entire CoD dedicated to the online aspect, and another team to create a game that focuses exclusively on the single-player campaign…well damn, that could be cool . Then again, we could be seeing more evidence for that supposed spin-off title featuring Ghost. What do you think it will be? Or perhaps a better question is, what would you want to see from this third CoD studio?

We suppose they could go in any number of directions but at this point, it's hard to envision Activision taking a wrong step with this series. That's like saying we'll soon see a bad Harry Potter book.

Call of Duty : Future Warfare?

I had the same thought, you know having 3 studios for the call of duty series that activision is going to milk the franchise even more. So well probably have 2 per year at least.

That reminds me… I'd love to for THQ to make an action/shooter of Warhammer 40k. My dream game would be Vigil Games creating a Grey Knights action/shooter… If you know what I'm talking about you know it could be awesome.

Maybe they could succed where battlefield 2142 failed. Or maybe the future is best left in the hands of Gurilla and Bungie

I am a HUGE COD fan but that is overkill. No more. I think MW2 is gonna be my last FPS until Killzone 3.

I'm going for the spin-off title. XboxLive has certain policies that won't allow MMOS to run on their network which is probably the same reason why FFXIV will never make it to Xbox360.

Well I don't own an Xbox360 so maybe I'm just ill-informed and completely wrong on this one, but I haven't seen a single MMO game to come to Xbox360. That being said, I don't think anybody is attracted to the idea of having to pay subscription fees to be able to play a game that also requires subscription fees.

360 had FFXI, an MMO, but I agree, it is stupid to pay a fee to LIVE then another to the game publisher.

Lol, and FFXIV SE already said they're bringing it to the 360, it's just a pc/ps3 timed exclusive, you really think SE would miss out on the money?

Champions Online was also rumored to be going to the 360… Not sure if they're still planning that as they're having a lot of issues keeping the customers happy for the PC version.

Hey I'm getting pretty good at this stuff, called it in the forums a few days ago.

The questions is: How can COD be watered down even more?

This CoD thing is getting tiresome… sry, but I am put off by the whole thing. I am sticking with my Killzone franchise… far superior… in every respect!

Activision trolls the game industry again and millions of people still buy their games.

Enough Already!!!

What they SHOULD do is make two seperate titles exclusive to each platform. See which is better.

That would cause all xbox 360's to RROD simultaneously, as a sign of admitting defeat. Also thumbs up to you and for the first time ______ for his cow remark.

I like that fake news story on how Modern Warfare 3 would be the most realistic combat simulator ever as you would spend most of your time filling out worthless paperwork and hauling supplies all over the place.
