After setting the rumour mill abuzz with an innocuous tweet to a fan, Activision and Infinity Ward have now confirmed a new Call of Duty, as well as a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
The new Call of Duty shows what looks to be massive space battles, which may be part of the multiplayer, meaning those disappointed with the lack of airborne combat in Star Wars Battlefront might find a place here.
Some of the new features in this new entry includes seamless ground-to-space battle transitions, meaning there should be no loading times between the two.
Much like in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, the campaign will have a ‘home base’, where players can roam around, practicing in virtual reality and customising loadouts before heading into a mission.
Infinity Ward have also confirmed that single-player mode will have a ship called ‘The Jackal’ that will be fully customisable.
Once again, Sony will get the headstart on Xbox One users, with DLC appearing on the PS4 a month beforehand.
So far, Infinity Ward have only released ‘micro statements’ on the multiplayer system, saying that it will be “innovative” and cater to all different kinds of playstyles (yes campers, the game might even be easier for you now).
But the best part is the announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

I’m incredibly hyped to play the best single-player campaign missions of all time, All Ghillied Up. Crawling through the radioactive zones in Pripyat as Capt. Price (then lieutenant), it will be interesting to see if the graphical improvements enhance the atmospheric panic.
The game will be released on November 4 with the ‘Legacy’ Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare bundle on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It has already been confirmed that it will not be available for last-gen (Xbox 360 and PS3) consoles.
No word yet whether the remastered CoD4 will be available as a standalone product.
