RUMOR: The next Call of Duty may be revealed very soon0 Comments
File this one under "S" for "simply not surprising at all," but a brand new game in the Call of Duty franchise is on its way and could be revealed as early as next week.
The ever-astute Jim Sterling tweeted a picture he received from a fan, which depicted a monthly retail marketing kit guide outlining "Call of Duty Reveal" as one of the pieces of marketing. There is no image of the poster as there is the other depicted pieces, but that makes sense considering we haven't seen the new game yet.
Another image surfaced on Reddit showing what looks like the PlayStation 4's PS Store menu, and highlighted on the sidebar are the words "Duty: Infinite Warfare" that also point to the pending reveal of a new game. This may not be the actual title of the game — it may be referencing that Infinity Ward is the developer this time around — but it's another interesting development.
While the Reddit image of the PS Store has me skeptical, the marketing guide picture does not for two reasons: one, I worked in gaming retail and saw stuff like this all the time, and two is it really a leak to reveal that a new Call of Duty is coming? I'd be more surprised if Activision said "nope, no CoD this year, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed decision inspired us." Keep an eye on the internets Call of Duty fans, that time of year could be nigh.
