Even though Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has just finished releasing the first DLC, people already are talking about the next title in the famous first-person shooter franchise from Activision. With this year’s team leader on the next Call of Duty game being Infinity Ward, the Modern Warfare developer, the fanbase is going nuts. That and the fact that they’re teasing what’s about to come.
Take Ashton Williams latest tweets for example. The Senior Communications Manager at Infinity Ward has been posting some weird gifs in the past month, most of them containing skulls, skeletons and strange dead people. Here are some snapshots from her posts:
Now the fanbase started speculating that the studio would be working on a sequel to 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, which had the special ops force wear skull masks, earning their name as the Ghosts.
But in a Resetera thread, Jason Schreier from Kotaku stated that the next Call of Duty “ain’t Ghosts 2!” – but did not give any reasons.
Last year’s rumors about the next CoD developed by Infinity Ward implied that the team was working on a Modern Warfare sequel, with Ghost being a character from the series or possibly the star of the next CoD.
Even though Ghost died in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, we could see a prequel in 2019 which takes place before the events in the trilogy.
As for official announcements, looking back in the past years, we should get more information in late Spring. Activision will surely let Black Ops 4 enjoy its glory for the moment, considering it just got new exciting content.
Williams might just post all the spooky photos on Twitter because they are cool. As with all speculations and rumors, we should take everything with a grain of salt and hope to get official insight from the developers.
