Call of Duty


 

Several clues out of Call of Duty developer Sledgehammer Games have suggested that the studio could be taking the series back in time for the next installment.

Sledgehammer got into the holiday spirit, with co-founder Michael Condrey tweeting out a digital greeting card wishing everyone happy holidays. Nothing strange about that, but what is worth noting is that the greeting card featured a M1911, one of the more prolific handguns on battlefields of the 20th century.

The second hint is a bit more of a stretch, but still hard to ignore. Another Twitter post by the studio rang in the new year with a short video featuring the graphic of a safe lock switching to 2017. Considering how the last several Call of Duty installments have been set in the future, the rather archaic design of the lock is curious.

Based on the three-year development rotation of the Call of Duty series, 2017 is Sledgehammer’s year to take another crack at it. These hints could end up meaning nothing, but considering fans seem to be getting tired of the series’ futuristic direction, we very well may be heading back to an earlier time this year.

In other Call of Duty news, Activision recently revealed the first DLC for Infinite Warfare, titled Sabotage, was recently revealed.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808

Next Call of Duty’s historical setting may have already been teased
