New COD to be revealed on May 4th

Written by David Stellmack

Sledgehammer at the helm of this offering

The long awaited Call of Duty title from Sledgehammer is finally set to be revealed ahead of E3 on May 4th according to their own teaser site. A number of sources and other sites are reporting that the name of the new Call of Duty title will be called Blacksmith.

If the rumors are correct, the new Call of Duty title is to focus around private military contractors and mercenaries in the new title. It will be something very different if accurate.

This Call of Duty title represents the first offering in the franchise from the Activision Sledgehammer studio which was setup specifically to produce a new COD title. The game is expected for release later this year, and an image shown by Sledgehammer earlier this year seem to indicate that the title is targeted at the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC as the primary platforms. Of course we suspect that a graphically dubbed down version will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well.

The decision to reveal a month ahead of E3 is interesting, but it does give Activision more time to control the message and get more media coverage while other companies hold out for their big slash announcements for E3. It could end up being all about the new Sledgehammer COD title for the month leading up to E3 and if it ends up working out this way it will be a very good strategy.
