The Dread Lord Kotick Plans to “Guitar Hero” the Call of Duty Franchise

Forced to comment on the assault at Infinity Ward on Monday, Activision released a statement outlining their plans to ride the Call of Duty into the ground. In addition to the Treyarch developed Call of Duty expected this fall and an anticipated Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, a spin-off game from developer Sledgehammer is also due in 2011.

Rumors are already swirling as to the nature of this new direction for the franchise, but the following video sent to us from a source inside Sledgehammer points to a rather unexpected direction. Internally, the game is being called “Call of Duty: Boot Camp” and describes it as a Wii-based fitness game starring R. Lee Ermey, of Full Metal Jacket fame, as the abrasive Drill Sergent who will whip your lazy ass into a lean, mean fighting machine.

Apologies for the video quality. It’s from a Wii game, what can you do? Other rumors are already swirling about more unannounced Call of Duty games outside the FPS mainline including titles described as a “God of Warfare”, a “Chow Line Mama” cooking game and “WarVille” for Facebook.

Which game in the Call of Duty franchise do you want to play most?
