I would say to be cautious with any potential rumour but realistically you're never more than a couple of months from a Call of Duty game, so I'm going to say this tweet from Jim Sterling is probably legit.
The next Call of Duty will apparently get unveiled by next Tuesday. Getting listed in retailers at any rate. pic.twitter.com/eYnVX5spdhApril 26, 2016
It's looks like it's referring to the point of sale cardboard signs retailers usually put over the till and shelves and that third of May date suggests a reveal is due any minute. The current set up has Infinity Ward, Treyarch and Sledgehammer tag teaming releases on a three year cycle and this year will be Infinity Ward's go.
The studio’s last game was Modern Warfare 3 but whether we see a continuation of that, or the start of a new franchise is the big question. In 2012 the voice actor for Captain Price (the series' most recognisable character) supposedly said he was meeting with Infinity Ward for Modern Warfare 4, something the studio very strenuously denied.
This image has since popped up, which I would be very cautious about given just how convenient the timing is. It might be the new name, or it could be a joker with some free time.
That was posted on Reddit (opens in new tab) barely hours after Jim Sterling's tweet which seem way too close for coincidence.
Seen something newsworthy?
