Activision Kicks Off Call of Duty 2016 Marketing With Giant Spacsehips & Cryptic Logos

Hot on the tail end of this morning’s supposed Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare leak, Activision appears to have kickstarted Call of Duty 2016’s viral marketing campaign with an official teaser and a few major implications.

It comes in the form of an update to Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 which, as many fans have noticed, has altered the animation that plays during the end-of-match screen on the map Nuk3town. Now, the nuclear explosion that traditionally brings the match to a close has been replaced with a destructive blast of a giant spaceship warping into the atmosphere.

Yes. A giant spaceship.

We suggest taking a look at Drift0r’s breakdown:

While it’s hard to gather much information from the logos that are briefly flashed on the screen during the animation, the floating spacecraft and huge warp drive explosion clearly suggests a far-future setting involving space travel and, quite likely, space combat.

Thanks to a tweet from professional baseball pitcher David Price, we’re certain that the teaser is indeed linked to Call of Duty 2016. Below, he is pictured with a t-shirt sporting the same logo featured in the teaser above, along with the caption “enlist.”

It’s also worth noting the additional logo on the other shirt that appears to say something like “IW7.”

Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare, as it’s allegedly called, is rumored to launch on November 4, 2016 along with a special ‘Legacy Edition’ of the game that will feature a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Developing…

Thanks, Drift0r!
