Watch On Demand

It’s the time of year when Activision starts talking about the next entry in its first-person shooter franchise. The publisher usually reveals its latest modern-military game during the NBA playoffs, which are in the first round now. Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward is also due for a new game, since the company has released a new Call of Duty every other year since 2005.
