New Call of Duty rumored to have space combat, set in distant future

Industry insider says the next Call of Duty will be so advanced that it'll make Black Ops 3 feel like the stone age in comparison

This year's Call of Duty game will reportedly delve deep into the distant future, with ultra-futuristic tech and interstellar combat. In other words, the new Call of Duty could very well take on a Halo-esque approach.




The reports from from NeoGAF posts from industry insider Shinobi602, who claims that the new Call of Duty will be so advanced that Black Ops 3 will "feel like the Stone Age" in comparison. That's a pretty tall order, considering Black Ops 3 had some pretty advanced cybernetic tech. Last year Shinobi was right on the mark about certain Black Ops 3 details, so these claims could be accurate.


  • This makes Black Ops 3 feel like the stone age (metaphorically, of course)
  • Very far future
  • Space combat
  • Full on sci-fi


Activision has already confirmed that a "new innovative Call of Duty game" is coming this year, but we're not sure if it'll be another sequel or not. Rumors hint that Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 will be released this November, and we can probably expect an official reveal at E3 2016.


Be sure to take these rumors with an entire saltshaker, but it'd be interesting to see how far Infinity Ward can push the dial without stepping into Halo's territory. I for one am looking forward to some deep space combat, especially with all of that new fancy tech to play with.
