Activision has announced that all future Call of Duty games will be moving into a three-year development cycle, with studio Sledgehammer Games being handed the CoD keys. Traditionally the series saw a two-year cycle until now, where developers Infinity Ward and Treyarch traded spots in alternating annual releases.

"For the first time, this year's Call of Duty game, and future Call of Duty games, are being built on a three year development cycle," the publisher revealed in this morning's conference call (via IGN). "There are several advantages to doing this, the first is of course quality. This will give our designers more time to envision and to innovate."

For this year's title, Sledgehammer Games has taken the reins, working independently on the title which is great news for the studio that previously played the support role in Call of Duty development. The timeline for CoD now consists of Sledgehammer Games this year, Treyarch's next game in 2015, and Infinity Ward's title in 2016.

So there will still be a COD game every year, just means that there are three developers working on three different CoDs at a time?

When I first read it will be a CoD game every three years I was excited that they might actually be decent again

Wow. Just. Wow. Pump out as much generic crap annually as possible. Amazing. Stopped playing at CoD2 but I do check out the releases just to confirm they are as terrible as I think

The CoD hate is as boring (probably moreso) than the actual games themselves. I don't really play them for the m/p, but have always found the SP campaigns to be enjoyable

It means they're spending 3 years on each game now though, so theres still hope the quality will improve
