So why no a really new engine for the next gen consoles?

Read in an article where an IW dev said it's not really a new engine, just has some improvements, though Activision's video said there was a new next gen engine for Activision games.

So I'm a bit confused.

Because it takes time to create such a thing. It will be a new engine. It will have upgrades. Just like everything else that comes out new.

they used call of duty with virtually identical grpahics for an entire console generation now. Upping the resolution slightly isn't going to cut it much longer. When people think of a new gen of consoles and games, they want a graphical leap.

Gears of War from 2006 looked more "next gen" than what I've seen of this for the most part. Battlefield? Call of Duty cries in a puddle of its own piss when compared in the graphics department.

I will give them a break since this is a cross-gen game and launch title for the new systems. But they need to SERIOUSLY make a new engine or at least use a different one that isn't 10+ years old for the next COD.

As I can respect your opinion.  Compare Black Ops to Black Ops2.  Completely different looking.

Yeah and Black Ops was great BO2 is by far the worst of all the COD titles.
