Infinity Ward, the studio behind the rumored Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, announces a livestream that will reveal the next game in the long-running series.
Rumors of the next Call of Duty game being announced this week have turned out to be true. Publisher Activision and developer Infinity Ward have confirmed that fans will see the next game in the series, rumored to be titled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, today at 10:30AM Pacific Time on the official Call of Duty Twitch channel.
The reveal promises to give fans concrete details about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and should either substantiate or put to rest rumors and speculation surrounding the game. So far, rumors have hinted at the game’s plot, potential characters, its setting, and more, and fans should be excited to finally have some answers.
Anyone that wants to watch the reveal of the next Call of Duty game live can tune in right here. Remember that the livestream begins at 10:30AM Pacific Time, and will feature studio members at Infinity Ward discussing their vision of the next Call of Duty game in detail.
Hopefully the livestream will clear the air in regards to some of the rumors that have persisted about Infinite Warfare in recent weeks. So far, rumors about Infinite Warfare point to Modern Warfare 2‘s Simon “Ghost” Riley returning, and to the game sporting a futuristic space setting. Activision has been teasing fans about these possibilities, which has served to strengthen the legitimacy of these rumors.
Perhaps the biggest rumor surrounding Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the one that claims Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will be releasing alongside it later this year. A Call of Duty 4 remaster has also been teased by Activision, so hopefully we learn more about that potential title as well during the impending livestream reveal of the next Call of Duty game.
While it’s easy to guess that a remastered version of Call of Duty 4 probably features beefed up graphics, the question remains how it will handle multiplayer, as it would be odd for Activision to potentially split the multiplayer audience between Call of Duty 4 and Infinite Warfare. This has led some to speculate that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will have less maps than the original game, or it will ditch the multiplayer component entirely. How extensive Call of Duty 4‘s multiplayer will be in the remaster is still up in the air at this point, but here’s hoping the livestream clarifies things on that front.
Going into the livestream reveal for the next Call of Duty game, one thing’s for certain, and that is there’s a lot of unknowns about the new game. We expect the livestream to provide answers, but in the meantime, fans can continue to speculate based on the information from the various rumors and leaks that have occurred recently.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is rumored for release on November 4th for unspecified platforms.
