‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ Release Date Announced

Activision is taking Call of Duty to space this fall, as the latest entry in the popular shooter franchise, titled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, launches worldwide November 4.

Developed by Infinity Ward, Infinite Warfare promises to deliver a war that “for the first time in franchise history, extends beyond the reaches of Earth into the vast expanse of our solar system.’ The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Additionally, Infinity Ward is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which will be bundled with several editions of Infinite Warfare.

“This year, we’re both honoring the heritage of Call of Duty while taking players to incredible new heights,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a bold, new vision from the studio that created the original Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, and an adventure on an insanely epic scale that only Call of Duty could deliver. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the most beloved games of all-time, reborn for a new generation. We have lovingly remastered it with a whole new level of graphical fidelity and realism that wasn’t possible when the original was released. It’s going to be a great year for Call of Duty players.”

While details are still light, players can expect to encounter high-speed space combat for the first time in the series. The game appears to be set in a distant future where Earth colonies have been established on other planets. Of course, Infinite Warfare will include a number of new weapons and player abilities.

“With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we are taking Call of Duty to places fans have never experienced in the series,” said Dave Stohl, Studio Head of Infinity Ward. “On one hand, this game is the kind of gritty, boots on the ground, visceral war story that Call of Duty is known for. On the other, its future setting takes players on a journey of epic scale and proportions, providing incredible gameplay innovations and new experiences for our fans. This is a grand scale, old-school, all-out war in an epic new-school setting. And it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will include improved texture resolution, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio. And the best news? The game’s legendary online multiplayer mode is coming back too, with 10 maps from the original release including Crash, Backlot and Crossfire.

The following editions of Infinite Warfare will be bundled with the remaster:

  • Legacy Edition and Digital Legacy Edition – Includes both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, SRP $79.99.
  • Digital Deluxe Edition – Includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Season Pass, SRP $99.99.
