Another year, another CoD game….

What we should know about it?
Well, it’s a Call of Duty game, it will be released a week before Dishonored 2, on November 4, 2011 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. And it takes place in space.
It also features new weapons and a campaign focused on Captain Reyes, a Tier 1 Special Operations who is a pilot. Additional details were provided by Dave Stohl of Infinity Ward:
“With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series. On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.”
