I think Black Ops 2 will be the last on current console hardware.
I think there may be a break with no Activision FPS game at 2013, but with a "debut" next gen game with the launch of the new console hardware (best guess mid-2014?)
This will mean that a new game engine would most likely be designed (possibly out of necessity) that could incorporate many different elements of which we cannot imagine right now.
I think that Activision will most likely renew the deal with Microsoft for earlier xbox promotions. It will have been lucrative for both parties and I can't see Sony matching the offer.
I think the biggest drawback to MMO would be lack of dedicated servers, which would still be impossible given the huge and expanding player count (unless Activision does a u-turn on their policy) or unless there are significant advances in network functionality on the new consoles.
Whatever a next gen game brings - I hope the core elements of the CoD FPS shooter remain.

I think Call of Duty will continue, there are a lot more wars in history eg, Korea, more World War 2 would be nice, also. I'm not sure what else they could do... World War 1 would be a bit.. terrible.. But yeah.

Series go to an end for some gamers when it change to much from the original but for those gamers new gamers will come up.
And still enough wars/conflict to make games about. Like korea, vietnam, gulfwars and WW2
