Next Call of Duty to be revealed May 4, revolves around private military contractors

Posted on May 1, 2014 AT 10:44am

Publisher Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games will unveil the next Call of Duty game this weekend, on Sunday, May 4, Sledgehammer announced on Twitter today.

The developer’s tweet included a link to the next Call of Duty’s official website, which, within its source code, contained three links to content regarding PMCs—the Wikipedia entry on private military companies, the New York Times’ listing of articles about PMCs, and a Business Insider piece about the PMC industry reinventing itself following the demise of Blackwater. All of this, plus a mini-documentary Activision put together about this year’s Call of Duty, points to a game wherein players will either be part of a PMC outfit or dealing with PMC forces in some capacity.

Another teaser image (seen below) shows an image of San Francisco’s Golden Gate bridge, hinting, perhaps, at one of the game’s location—if not a central one.

Game Informer also revealed today that Sledgehammer’s 2014 Call of Duty would be the subject of their June issue cover story, releasing alongside the announcement out first in-game screenshot. The image (seen above), depicts a semi-futuristic, power armor outfitted soldier who is presumably part of a PMC outfit.

The gaming magazine will release the digital version of their June 2014 issue on Sunday, three days earlier than originally scheduled, to coincide with the game’s reveal trailer.

According to the timer on the official website, the new Call of Duty will be revealed at 10 a.m. ET (7 a.m. PT) on Sunday.
