Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare According to recent comments from Activision president Rob Kostich, it may be the most futuristic franchise vision we’ve ever seen, with no sequel in sight. Instead, the shooter franchise will likely stick to modern and near-future environments as these offer the best balance between realism and flexibility.
Kostich made the comments as part of an in-depth interview with GamesBeat that was celebrated Call of Duty 20 year history. “I think we played a lot of games in the future. We probably went as far as we could,” he said. This is a reference to 2016 Infinite Warfare, which is set in 2187 and introduces mechanics such as zero-gravity combat and energy-based weapons. However, it wasn’t as well received by fans as other titles.
Kostich continued: “Some of the games we have done in the past. Over time, you start to see the sweet spot and what really resonates with the community. You see things like that Modern Warfare And Black Ops Franchises are very popular.” During Modern Warfare was simultaneous in both the years 2007–2011 and in the years 2019 to date, Black Ops was more diverse, spanning a century between the 1960s and the 2060s in its four entries. And Black Ops has ensured more freedom in inclusion: “Black Ops is all about secret things that no one knows about. There is a lot of applied creativity in it Black Opswhich is always very entertaining for developers too.”
Kostich also highlighted 2017 sales Call of Duty: World War II However, he mentioned that the setting limited creativity a bit: “The challenge is that when you go into World War II or even earlier, you have less flexibility in trying to maintain a somewhat realistic tone, which is important .” call of Duty. By the way, our fans strongly define what call of Duty is and is not. Once you get into the modern era, you have a lot more flexibility. You get a little more flexibility in what you can do with weapons in the future.”
He also mentioned that the future of call of Duty is already planned until 2027, with 3,000 people across all Activision studios contributing to the franchise. These plans undoubtedly include future updates Call of Duty: Warzone And Call of Duty: Mobileas well as this year’s main entry, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and whatever will follow. Unfortunately, Kostich’s comments make it seem as if Infinite Warfare Fans won’t be getting a sequel, but there’s still plenty to look forward to.
