Infinity Ward's Twitter-Teased New Call Of Duty Game Isn't 'Ghosts 2'
Since November, Infinity Ward's Communications Manager, Ashton Williams, has posted a number of cryptic and kinda creepy tweets.
Gifs of skeletons, rituals, *GHOSTS*, the devil, and generally scary shenanigans litter her Twitter feed, and fans reckon they're all linked to Infinity's upcoming Call of Duty title, set for release later in 2019.
The thinking has been that such imagery can only mean one thing: a sequel to 2013's Call of Duty: Ghosts is on the way. But this idea, however obvious it may seem based on the tweets, has been categorically kiboshed by Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier.
Schreier - who tends to know a thing or two about forthcoming games - took to the Reset Era post "Tease for the next CoD game from IW? (Ghosts 2?)" yesterday to confirm that there's no Ghosts sequel on the way.
On his verified account, jschreier, he simply said: "It ain't Ghosts 2!" And yeah, we're going to take his word for it. But what could the Activision-owned studio have in the works?
Another possible, expected (let's be honest, *massively* anticipated) release is Modern Warfare 4. But what's with all these ghosts, then? Could the ghost, Simon "GHOST" Riley, one of the franchise's more popular, gone-too-soon characters, be making a return?
Theories flooded the internet after his unexpected death in Modern Warfare 2, and as the first trailers for CoD: Ghosts hit YouTube. They claim to have 'evidence' that proves he survived Sheperd's point blank shot to the face.
He most likely didn't (sadly), but it's a pretty cool idea. I'd love to see him, as well as a bunch of other notable Modern Warfare characters, make a comeback. So, let's pretend they will. Hell, perhaps the series is taking a backwards step to make this possible, and a MW2 prequel is on the cards?
Or maybe, just maybe, none of us have the faintest idea of what's going on. Or, like previous game mode Extinction, the next Modern Warfare title could offer a mode to compete with Treyarch's Zombies... but with skeletons?
What do you think about these tweets? Which game would you rather see? Make sure you let us know, and feel free to share your theories in the comments.
