Infinite Warfare Developers Hoping to Expand Sub-Series

By Outsider Published 21st Aug 2016

The upcoming installment to the Call of Duty universe could spawn a sub-series of Infinite Warfare titled games.

With an upcoming release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we have heard and seen plenty in the news regarding Infinity Ward's new space warfare first-person shooter. Today brings news straight from the developer regarding their plans beyond Infinite Warfare.

Infinity Ward's Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki spoke briefly on the subject with Polygon in regards to what comes after Infinite Warfare, stating that he hopes the game is "the start of something new- an established sub franchise within the Call of Duty brand, not unlike Treyarch’s Black Ops 3."

Infinity Ward does not have to look entirely to Treyarch for their series model as the company produced the Modern Warfare trilogy. Although after a much publicized developer shake-up at the company, Modern Warfare is far in the past, sans the upcoming remake as part of Infinite Warfare.

Either way, it was more than likely the plan to spawn additional titles to Call of Duty: Ghosts, but the fan reaction was a farcry from that of what Activision is used to with the award-winning series. As with that saga, this decision will more than likely come down to how the game fares in an ever-evolving gaming world.

    They announced not that long ago that they were planning on making Advanced Warfare 2. I have no idea how they got that idea but thank God they stuck in World War II. Even though the game isn't the best, it's better than AW and Ghost.
