2016 is going to be an "incredible" year, Infinity Ward has said, ahead of the expected reveal of its latest Call of Duty later this year.

Welcoming in the new year, Infinity Ward tweeted: "Happy new year!! 2016 is going to be incredible. Let's do this."

While Activision has yet to confirm which studio is behind this year's Call of Duty, the franchise's 3-year dev cycle means that it's Infinity Ward's turn to step up to the plate.

Infinity Ward's latest game was 2012's Call of Duty: Ghosts, having previously developed Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, and co-developed Modern Warfare 3. Since then, however, the studio has been merged with Neversoft to create a new "super-studio".

It isn't yet known whether this year's game will be a sequel to Ghosts, a return to Modern Warfare or a brand new sub-series.

Here's how the franchise has shaped up in recent years:

  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007) - Infinity Ward
  • Call of Duty: World at War (2008) - Treyarch
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009) - Infinity Ward
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010) - Treyarch
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2011) - Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer Games
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (2012) - Treyarch
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013) - Infinity Ward
  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2014) - Sledgehammer Games
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (2015) - Treyarch

Is there anything in particular you want to see from Call of Duty this year? Let us know in the comments.

Have to agree with you trikster, mw collection would be great. Happy memories of proper war games, not this jumping about lark with colourful outfits ! multi coloured uniforms ! really. Might be good if you are in a jar of sweeties ! Cant see really guys wearing them. And i no it's just a game but lets keep it as real as possibly, for a war game. By all means create space games etc, but under a different title.
mw back with map editors would be fab, the multi player was great and really didnt need to release game after game, just map pack after map pack and i would have been happy.
Lets get back to basics.

I'd be happy with a Modern Warfare HD Collection. Doesn't really need to change much, just fix balancing issues.
