The leaked art has all but confirmed the name - Infinite Warfare - but now we have our first look at the next Call of Duty. The 30 second teaser has what looks a lot like Mr Robocop, Peter Weller, addressing the camera with a stern message for an unseen enemy:
Here’s what he says:
"Make no mistake. We will rip you from the history books. Every last trace of you gone. You will know loss. We will be the architects of your pain. We will build monuments to your destruction. The whole world will bare witness to this: our ascension. We will blot out your skies. We will bury you in darkness. Know this and know us. We are your enemy. "
The last bit cuts off but it sounds like he says “We are the settlement defence fight...” There are also two slogans via the tweeted video and the YouTube version: "You cannot prevent what is coming" and "KNOW YOUR ENEMY".
However, the real interesting stuff is in the flickering frames in-between. First up there’s this futuristic scene showing some sort of sci-fi city, car and robot immediately destroyed in some sort of explosion:
Then this cryptic message “Nuk3town offline” referencing the famous multiplayer map based on a nuclear testing site. What that messages means here though is currently a bit of a mystery.
This skull face also appears repeatedly and seems very similar to the character Ghost’s skull facemask.
This logo also appears, and can be seen on the Peter Weller-a-like character's uniform.
Obviously, very little of this makes sense just yet but that teaser’s tone, message and design screams Starship Troopers to me which could be a very interesting direction for the series to take if it means non-human enemies.
