    Black ops 2 will be the last game to use the Infinity Ward Engine, Next one will be DX-11 Based

    Call of Duty dev working on DirectX 11 game - Video Game News, Videos and File Downloads for PC and Console Games at Shacknews.com

    It appears Call of Duty may finally shed its aging engine. If so, Black Ops 2 will be the last game to use the IW engine, which has its roots in id Tech 3. Based on the resume of an Infinity Ward engineer, Activision's other Call of Duty studio is working on a "new high-end DX11 code base."


    The resume of Andrew Aye shows work on an "unannounced title" due for PS3, Xbox 360, PC DX11, and "TBA." Given that the current slate of consoles cannot run DirectX 11, it seems likely that "TBA" represents an upcoming next-gen console.

    Kotaku points out that the next Call of Duty game may see a multi-generation release, a la Call of Duty 2 where "current-gen versions are ported down from their cutting-edge counterparts."

    Should have used it the last time 2 years ago. It plays fine, but definitely looks horrible.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    I figured as much, seeing how next-gen is around the corner. Now if only they can implement Nazi dinosaurs.

    Maybe they sacrifice graphics for frame rate?... lots of shitty MP games out there...

    The graphics are realistic enough for this console's generation. If the next-gen consoles had the same engine for the game, I would start to worry as the graphics, no matter how clear they are with this engine's specifications, are not good enough to deserve a place in the next-gen's console's (PS4, Wii-U etc.)
