In a conference call following the announcement of record financials last night, Activision said Call of Duty 5 will launch in the fourth quarter of the current financial year, ending March 31 2009.

“We’ll launch on all four platforms we’ve participated on in fiscal [year] 2008,” said Activision publishing CEO Mike Griffith, referring to Call of Duty 4, which released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Nintendo DS in 2007.

Griffiths also confirmed that “we’ll [also] launch on the PS2 and the Wii.”

Griffiths added: “We’ll bring the intensity of the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title to a new military theater to engage our significantly larger user base which nearly doubled last year as new users came into the franchise.”
