BOCW Engine 

BOCW, developed by Treyarch, uses an entirely different engine to it predesecor. 

As each COD title is developed by a different studio each year, the engine they use may vary depending on what they have planned.

Although there's no release date for the upcoming Call of Duty title, we can expect the game to release around October/November.
