The next installment in the popular Call of Duty franchise has been revealed and officially announced as Infinite Warfare. As we know Infinite Warfare is being handled by Infinity Ward and along with Activision they have brought us a brand new trailer to show us what is happening in the new game. As it turns out this new game will be delving further into the modern futuristic setting of the franchise with a major chunk of the games campaign set in space or on other planets, this is pretty much the extent of the new game and its campaign.
In addition the rumored remaster of Modern Warfare has been officially revealed, this game is seemingly shown off towards the end of Infinite Warfare’s launch trailer with one of the games opening missions played out in the modern series graphical engine. You will be able to get Modern Warfare bundled in with Infinite Warfare by preordering one of the varying special editions including the Legacy Edition ($79.99), Digital Deluxe Edition ($99.99, includes Season Pass) or Legacy Pro Edition ($119, Season Pass, Steelbook, soundtrack, digital items) will receive Modern Warfare bundled in (of which the game includes both the single-player campaign and ten multiplayer maps.
It has been confirmed that purchasing these editions will be the only way to get the Modern Warfare remaster which will not be sold separately.
Activision has released a press release for Infinite Warfare wherein they state:
“We are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series,” Dave Stohl, head of Infinity Ward continues. “On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.”
Activision and Infinity Ward have confirmed that Infinite Warfare will be coming to the PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One on November 4th 2016. There is no word on whether Call of Duty will continue with its support of last generation hardware on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, however I would not hold your breath for confirmation that they will be going to last generation systems.
