After the huge news of Vivendi
buying merging with Activision, the new entity of Activision Blizzard plans on publishing a new version of Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, and Tony Hawk every year.
What does this mean for you, the gamer? Well, it probably means Infinity Ward is already deep into development of CoD5 or will be skipping the next version as they skipped 3. Either that or the game will not be as polished as CoD4.
As for Guitar Hero, some of us think it will suffer while others believe it will be fine. It isn't too time consuming to create new tracks, but where does DLC enter into this? Will the GHIII DLC be cut short (as it was for Guitar Hero II) to make room for GHIV?
Then there's Tony Hawk... Early rumor has it that the next version of the long-standing franchise will be more realistic. That probably has nothing to do with skate. Also, they've had no problems cranking one out every year.
How do you feel about this? Realize, that if this actually happens, by 2010 we will be playing Call of Duty 7, Guitar Hero VI, and the 13th Tony Hawk game.
