Quartermann Rumors: CoD5 in 2009, New Killer Instinct Coming to 360
With the July issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly set to attack your mailboxes, we’ve got an early look at some of the Quartermann rumors you’ll find.
Xbox 360 owners should be on the lookout for the resurrection of an old Rare franchise — Killer Instinct. The developer is reportedly at work on a new game in the series, known as Killer Instinct 3D: Death, Destruction, and Doom. Sporting full-on 3D graphics, the game is still “rather early” but looks “promising,” according to those-who-shall-not-be-named.
First-person shooter gamers will want to take a close look at the Qmann’s column for a number of interesting tidbits. First and foremost, the upcoming Call of Duty 5 apparently won’t be out by the end of this year, and will instead be released next February. Remember, this game is being developed by Treyarch, not Infinity Ward, so perhaps the extra development time will help this game live up to the series’ name more than Call of Duty 3 did.
Next year will also see a new entry in Call of Duty‘s rival series, Medal of Honor. Naturally, the game will look to capitalize on the success Call of Duty 4 is having with its Middle East setting, with the game taking place in Afghanistan. The Spec Ops series from 2K will also be getting rebooted with a Middle Eastern twist, as the game will take place in Dubai.
Subscribers should be getting the new EGM any day now, with newsstands seeing it soon after.
