Rumor: Call of Duty creators' next game is 'next Xbox' exclusive

Microsoft likely wants to make a big splash with the launch of its next Xbox game console. While we are still over three weeks away from its official reveal, unconfirmed rumors about the hardware and software behind the successor to the Xbox 360 have been posted on the Internet for months.

Today, a new rumor about the next Xbox has been posted and this time the report is about a possible game exclusive. Kotaku, via unnamed sources, claims that the first game from developer Respawn Entertainment will be an exclusive for Microsoft's console. Respawn is the team that was founded by Jason West and Vince Zampella in 2010; the two men previously founded Infinity Ward and were the main creative forces behind Activision's Call of Duty shooter series. West has since left Respawn but Zampella is still there, along with a number of other former Infinity Ward team members.

The game itself, which will be published by Electronic Arts, is said to be a sci-fi multiplayer action game featuring players controlling both foot soldiers and giant mech-like vehicles called Titans, but with a lot more agility than other mech vehicles in other games. Respawn has yet to officially state anything about their game but did say recent they would be showing something at E3 2013 in June.
