A new teaser for the new Call of Duty (CoD) has just been released under the name of Know Your Enemy, where many hints are given – including release date –, like a new character and possibly some hints at the return of the popular Simon “Ghost” Riley from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Various leaks that have been popping up to the public eye on the past few weeks have brought up the interest on this new release. Activision has yet to officially reveal its latest game; the publisher has released a 33-second long teaser trailer to give gamers a taste of what they can expect from CoD later this year.

This new Call of Duty is expected to be released on November 4. Also, many fans have confirmed the existence of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare by browsing the trending section of the PlayStation Store on their PlayStation 4. This area contains a link to the forthcoming AAA game, although selecting the new option doesn’t provide any valid information, simply accessing a placeholder instead.

Sci-fi added to Call of Duty

One of the features that Infinite Warfare will bring up is that it will have a science-fiction setting that looks probably to be ongoing in the future. It’s well-known that the Call of Duty series has been pretty much accurate about the contemporary warfare on each of the games, in order to deliver exciting action over the years. It seems natural in many ways to deliver a future setting with the next game in the series.

Why do people think the new Call of Duty will be set in the future? Actually some images leaked where it seems to be featuring an alien style spaceship in the background, with a protagonist holding some form of sophisticated, futuristic flight helmet.

Although the Call of Duty games in recent years have been somewhat speculative in nature, it is increasingly being suggested that the next game will be set many years into the future, and will feature the outer space combat along with intergalactic space marines.

Is Ghost back?

Simon Riley, also known as “Ghost,” actually dies near the end of Modern Warfare 2 campaign. To give Infinite Warfare the futuristic twist that seems to be present in this new Call of Duty, perhaps there’s been a way that Activision has found to bring this character back from death.

Maybe this character is a clone or maybe it has simply passed on his trademark aesthetic to someone new is still up in the air, but there’s no question that Ghost would make for a welcomed return given his longstanding popularity and iconic balaclava.
