I have some news that will probably shock you. The next Call of Duty title is going to be Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 and if you are still dazed by the news, then prepare to be amazed, because that was not all. The game will be released in November 2016.
The new title of the COD series will be Call of Duty: Ghosts 2, made by Infinity Ward, which has not released a title since Ghosts 1, back in 2013, the last two episodes of the franchise being produced by Treyarch and Sledgehammer.
This information has appeared in the Games TM magazine, not as a preview or a great article, but only as a passing mention. That’s the kind of information that should be published, but somehow one of the editors has forgotten what he knew was confidential.
Here is a transcript of the magazine:
When creative strategist Robert Bowling exited Infinity Ward in 2012, he put the departure down to the studio doing “too much ‘pew pew’ not enough new new.” We got a look at what he meant with the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts – a solid, yet unspectacular next-gen debut for the franchise. Infinity Ward will have had three years to work on a follow up, and it needs to showcase the same creative spark that once put in on the map with Modern Warfare back in ’08 if it wants any chance of standing shoulder to shoulder with Sledgehammer and Treyyarch.
It seems very unlikely that the information is false unless Activision pulled another Studio from its topper, therefore, this year’s Call of Duty will be produced by Infinity Ward and it has high chances to be Ghosts 2. It sounds logical since Infinity Ward hasn’t produced a Call of Duty that is not part of a series since… Call of Duty 1. Basically, because it was not a direct sequel to Call of Duty 1, although it was the same conflict. And since then, neither Activision hasn’t released a Call of Duty game that would not turn in their own mini-series.
More information about Call of Duty Ghosts 2 will make its appearance soon. Looking forward to more details about the revolutionary AI of rockfish and light that propagates from the direction perpendicular with the Sun’s rays.
Infinity Ward confirms they are working on COD 2016 on their Twitter channel.
