It’s not strange to see developers tease fans about their games due out in the coming year. With Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch releasing Call of Duty: WW2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in past years, it’s now Infinity Ward’s turn to take the reins of the franchise again. Senior communications manager Ashton Williams recently tweeted a GIF of a skull and some static, teasing the same.
Call of Duty: Ghosts 2? It would have seemed possible, given the cliff-hanger nature of the first game’s ending. However, according to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier on ResetEra, it isn’t a sequel to Call of Duty: Ghosts. Maybe something related to Modern Warfare 2, especially considering the character Ghost first appeared in that title? Perhaps a remaster, in vein of the one for the original Modern Warfare might be in the works?
It’s hard to say at this point, but the tease could certainly mean something. After all, Infinity Ward began 2016 with an image of an astronaut in space. Months later, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was announced (and famously disliked on YouTube). What could the developer have up its sleeve? Stay tuned for more information.
