2016 Will Be ‘Call of Duty’s’ Year. Unless It Won’t

chris-littlechild - January 2, 2016

I'm sure you sent out a fair few Happy New Year texts/emails/messages last night. Some copy-and-paste ‘send to all' ones, some a little more personal, maybe a grovelly ass-kissy one to your boss. That's just how New Years works, natch.

Over on social media, they're very easily done. Big companies can take seven seconds to write out a quick message, and so give the impression that they're actually assed about their multi-million customers all at once. Then there's someone like Bieber; the weasel-faced little ballache can wish all his billion Beliebers a happy 2016 all at once.

It's impersonal as hell, and means eff all really. But we go through the motions. And sometimes when we do, we get a lil' hint of something amazing to come.

Infinity Ward, one of the developers behind the mighty Call of Duty series, posted a doozy (well, kinda sorta maybe). A simple tweet from the company read Happy new year!! 2016 is going to be incredible. Let's do this.

As GameSpot reports, Call of Duty's development cycle would place this year as Infinity Ward's turn to bring us a new series entry. Is that what they're referring to? Do they know something they're not telling us? Is the FPS genre going to be transformed forever in 2016? Is something freaking astonishing coming our way? Is everyone reading far too much into a simple generic New Years tweet? Nobody knows yet, but it's one to keep an eye on.
