Activision over the weekend teased the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise with plans for an official unveiling on Monday. Update: The next Call of Duty is 'Infinite Warfare' and it's coming November 4th, check out the official reveal trailer here.
It all got started on Friday with an update to the Nuk3town map in Black Ops III and the introduction of a new logo on shirts shown off by high-profile Twitter users including Astros' pitcher David Price and the band We Came As Romans.
On Saturday, the official Call of Duty YouTube page dropped a teaser clip entitled Know Your Enemy followed by another clip on Sunday. Accompanying the second video was a puzzle that directed people to a Facebook Messenger chat bot. Once solved, the code points to tomorrow’s big reveal which is set to debut at 9 a.m. PDT.
This year’s game is currently in development at Infinity Ward, the studio responsible for the popular COD: Modern Warfare variants. Activision filed trademark applications with the United States Patent & Trademark Office on April 26 for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Infinite Warfare. A trademark application is no guarantee that a game of that title is on the way but it’s certainly worth considering, especially since no other potential game names have been tossed around to date.
In related news, EA has confirmed that it’ll reveal the next Battlefield game on May 6 at 4 p.m. EDT.
