Space… The Final Frontier. These are the continuing stories of the starship Activision. It’s mission; To shamelessly rip off those guys we fired and sued three years ago.
That might be a little unfair, but it seems accurate. I can’t be the only one thinking that Activision and Infinity Ward are churning out a CoD title to compete directly with Titanfall 2, right?
Either way, there’s been much talk around the gaming water cooler for the past week or so about the fabled existence of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and today we finally have confirmation. Infinity Ward’s next Call of Duty title is going to space.
In a trailer posted to YouTube early this morning, we get to see the whole thing unfurl. Jesus F**king Christ, we’re getting CoD in Space.
Side note: how many different versions of warfare can Activision come up with before we get something dumb-sounding? What’s next: Call of Duty Unlimited Warfare? Galactic Warfare? Classic Warfare? How many more of these can Acti pump out before someone calls them contrived and uninspired?
All jabs aside – this actually doesn’t look half bad! It looks as if we’ll be getting ship-to-ship combat in at least one part of the game, and to be fair it does include my favorite Call of Duty title before I feel the series went to sh*t. Maybe it was David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity‘ in the trailer that convinced me this might not be terrible, but for the first time in a LONG time, I’m considering giving a CoD title a shot.
