The three things we can be assured of in life are death, taxes, and a new Call of Duty game in November.
Activision has been dropping hints and teases all week. This morning they officially announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The next installment in the venerable franchises will be released on November 4 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
The three minute-long trailer shows the new game embracing its not-so-near future setting with full-on space warfare. Explosions! Robots! Mech Suits! Awkward David Bowie Cover Songs! It feels like a Call of Duty game, though the series is deviating more and more from its more realistic and historically-based roots.
Also announced is the Call of Duty Legacy Edition. This special version includes Infinite Warfare as well as a remastered version of 2007’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare Remastered will be a full game download including the campaign and 10 multiplayer maps. The standard edition of Infinite Warfare will be $60 while the Legacy Edition is priced at $80. No news yet if you can purchase Modern Warfare Remastered separately.
Infinity Ward’s last Call of Duty title was Call of Duty: Ghosts in 2013. It has a 78 Metacritic score (PS4/XONE) and was criticized for its weak single-player campaign. Infinity Ward recently produced a short video introducing many of the lead designers and their passions and love for the franchise.
