Bringing an end to a week-long spiel of alleged retailer listings and enticing teasers, Activision and developer Infinity Ward officially blew the lid off 2016’s Call of Duty earlier this morning. Entitled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, much as the pre-emptive reports had suggested, there was also confirmation that Modern Warfare 4 Remastered will come bundled in with the shooter’s Legacy Edition.
Catapulting the annual franchise into the distant future, Infinite Warfare goes one step further than last year’s Black Ops III by introducing space combat in an installment that “returns to the roots of the franchise where large-scale war and cinematic, immersive military storytelling take center stage.”
