A few months ago, a rumor started floating about that the next installment in the long-running Call of Duty series would be a sequel to 2013's Call of Duty: Ghosts, creatively titled Call of Duty: Ghosts 2. Thanks to an independently confirmed leaked image on Reddit, however, it seems that may not be the case.

It seems that sometime in November, we'll be seeing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, whatever that denotes. As usual, the real question on everyone's mind is when and where the game will be set. There's always the chance that the game is just a rebranded Ghosts sequel, but given the relative failure it represented, it seems more likely that Activision is pushing an entirely "new" game.

The good thing is that this leaves them with much more flexibility as to when the game is set. The recent Call of Duty games have been pushing more and more in to the future, and with a name like Infinite Warfare, it seems likely this will follow the trend. However, the title could be a commentary on the long and drawn out nature of conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan, or even either of the World Wars. Despite this, I wouldn't get my hopes up for anything but another shot at the status quo.
