It's 2017, and you know what that means: 12 months of games to start looking forward to. Of course, some of the games coming this year are virtually unknown and far away. Games like whatever Sledgehammer, the developer behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (opens in new tab), is working on. The studio shared a Happy New Year video over the weekend, and fans are already running wild with speculation. Here's the tweet:
It's officially 2017! Some call it the zodiac year of the Hammer. Have a safe and fun New Year's, everyone! #SHGholidays pic.twitter.com/24qlku6ITdJanuary 1, 2017
The Call of Duty series rotates through three studios, with each one pumping out a new entry per year. 2015 gave us Black Ops 3 (opens in new tab) from Treyarch, 2016 was Infinite Warfare (opens in new tab) from Infinity Ward, and now it's Sledgehammer's turn.
Naturally, fans are curious as to what the studio's up to. Here's what some have to say about whatever it is Sledgehammer's working on, ranging from the plausible to the inane, and some who just want to take any opportunity to chew out a developer:
@SHGames WW2 London COD confirmed ??January 1, 2017
@SHGames Zodiac = 1969 ? Vietnam Confirmed ? 1969 and 2017 both Year of the Rooster ?January 1, 2017
@SHGames @CallofDuty mw2 remastered MWR sucksJanuary 1, 2017

@SHGames Please make 2017 a good year and make a cod game strictly boots on the groundJanuary 1, 2017
@SHGames @CallofDuty SERVERS ARE DOWNJanuary 1, 2017
Of course, I've got a theory that blows all of these out of the water. You ready to hear it? What if - and just stick with me here, cuz it's gonna sound crazy - what if it's just a Happy New Year video, and it's not teasing anything? Wouldn't that be a great fakeout? *mind blown*
