Who doesn’t love a good ole’ accidental game reveal? Sony’s responsible for today’s leak. Some folks over at the Call of Duty Reddit noticed the new Call of Duty title appeared on the PlayStation Store under the Trending Section.
Sony quickly took it down, but the damage has been done. Infinity Ward’s next entry in the franchise is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
First thoughts on the name? Why are they so stuck on the Warfare moniker. First, it was Modern. Then Advanced. Now Infinite. Damn Activision, you’re out of names now.
We don’t know much else about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The banner page on the PlayStation Store was empty except for the title.
Multiple rumors suggest the next Call of Duty was going deep into the future and will feature space combat. With a name like Infinite Warfare, it sure as hell isn’t a throwback to World War II. At this point, I would be shocked if the rumors didn’t turn out to be true.
What we do know is Activision and Sony are partnering up again. Here’s what Activision had to say on March 1st about the next Call of Duty (emphasis mine).
“In June, we’re going to be at E3 showcasing gameplay from Infinity Ward’s ambitious new game. We’re looking forward to sharing exciting new details about the next great Call of Duty game in partnership with our friends at PlayStation. We’re proud to be participating in this premier video game event, but won’t have an Activision booth on the show floor.”
Look for Call of Duty DLC to keep coming to PlayStation 4 first. And competitive Call of Duty will remain on the platform for at least another year.
So, Infinite Warfare. What do you think? Space battles? More futuristic fighting? As long as the movement isn’t as crazy as Advanced Warfare, I’m on board.
I liked Advanced Warfare at first, but that fast movement got old after a while. Black Ops III does a good job finding a happy medium between older Call of Duty’s and newer ones. We’ll see if Infinity Ward can do the same later this year.
Keep your eyes peeled for the first footage sometime in early May. Activision likes to use NBA Playoff games to reveal the first trailers.
