Call of Duty is Going to Space

By | May 2, 2016

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.

CoD in 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.

An official announcement comes later this afternoon. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will release in North America on November 4th, 2016, likely for $59.99 USD. A “Legacy Edition” including a remastered downloadable version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for $79.99 USD. The download-only title (it seems) will include the full remastered campaign and ten multiplayer maps from the original game. Many in the gaming community consider the original Modern Warfare the peak of the series (yours truly included) so I guess it’s nice that we finally get a graphically updated version of the game.

Seriously, I can't be the only one that thinks this looks EXACTLY like Titanfall!

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?

Oh, wait...

Oh…

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.
