We’re just days in this new year, and we’re already in rumor territory! Over on Twitter, Infinity Ward Senior Communications Manager Ashton Williams has been tweeting vague, death-related .gifs, which people might see/think as a tease or confirmation for Call of Duty 2019 to be COD: Ghosts 2!
In case you haven’t been keeping track, 2019 is Infinity Ward’s turn to develop and release a Call of Duty game.
The teases started in December 2018, and is continuing up to this day! Here’s some of ’em.

Given the death, skulls and other imagery, one would automatically assume it’s Call of Duty: Ghosts 2. Well, apparently, it’s not. In a forum thread on ResetEra that talks about the teases, Kotaku writer, and generally dependable source of rumors and info, Jason Schreier has said that it “ain’t Ghosts 2!”

Given Schreier’s track record, it’s a pretty safe bet that he knows what he’s talking about. We’ve reached out to Activision to seek a statement on the matter, and will update the post if and when we get a reply.
For reference, COD: Ghosts was released back in 2013, and is Infinity Ward’s first departure from the Modern Warfare branding after MW3. The studio’s last Call of Duty game was Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which was released in November 2016.
