With the past few Call of Duty games being set in the not-too-distant future, some franchise fans might be thinking or wishing that future games in the franchise — specifically this year’s iteration being developed by Infinity Ward — either return to the present day, or go back to the World War II era. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be happening.
Noted industry insider shinobi602 has posted a few details on this year’s Call of Duty over on NeoGAF and he mentions how the game will be set in the very far future, will go the sci-fi route, and even have space battles!
While we usually don’t believe or report on any rumors that pop up out of nowhere, shinobi does have a very decent track record when it comes to these things. Of note, he leaked that Black Ops 3 will feature wall-running, and robotic limbs and cybernetics which the Specialists used that all turned out to be spot-on. Not only that, but he confirmed that Black Ops 3 was coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 and that it was being handled by another studio (not Treyarch).
Thoughts on Call of Duty 2016 supposedly taking the franchise in this direction?
