BO3 put on hold until 2015?

It looks as though Sledgehammer Games might be entering the fold this year after Activision announced that Call of Duty will be entering a three year development cycle. This means that a Black Ops 3 release won't be possible until November, 2015. Speaking on their website, Sledgehammer Games CEO Glen Schofield and Vice President Michael Condrey stated:
Having the honor of developing the new, next generation of Call of Duty is a developer’s dream come true. All of us here at Sledgehammer Games have a shared vision to create the best work of our lives. The next Call of Duty represents a new era for this amazing franchise, and we look forward to sharing what we have been working on.
Does this mean that we won't be seeing another Infinity Ward game until 2016? Will this give the various development studios time to revamp the engine and take COD in newer directions?

Note that this three year cycle will probably look a bit like this:

  • 2014: Sledgehammer Games.
  • 2015: Treyarch.
  • 2016: Infinity Ward.
  • 2017: Sledgehammer Games.
  • 2018: Treyarch.
  • 2019: Infinity Ward.
