Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Reveal

Let’s start with the obvious: there will be a new Call of Duty this fall. Until everyone on the planet stops picking up the latest version of Activision’s incredibly popular first-person shooter, we’re going to keep seeing new entries year in and year out. And now we might know the name of 2016’s entry.

It all started on Tuesday morning when game critic Jim Sterling shared an image of a document from a retailer which seemed to indicate a “Call of Duty Reveal” would take place by May 3rd (next Tuesday):

As IGN points out, the first gameplay trailer for Black Ops 3 was released on April 26th, 2015, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see Activision begin its months-long marketing campaign this week or next. Then, hours after Sterling’s tweet, some PS4 owners began to see an empty entry for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare scrolling across the Trending section of the PlayStation Store:

The chances of this being a complete fluke are slim to none. Adding even more fuel to the fire, Call of Duty fan site Charlie Intel got its hands on an image of a promotional poster for Infinite Warfare which indicates that the game will release on November 4th, 2016 and that the Legacy Edition will include a free download of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as well:

With all of this information pouring in within a matter of hours, it seems highly unlikely that we’ll be waiting more than a few days for Activision to come forward and confirm the existence of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
