Call of Duty Developer Infinity Ward is Teasing Something
Following the removal of its social media graphics, it seems that Infinity Ward is trying to tease the release of its next chapter in the Call of Duty franchise.
Fans of Call of Duty have heard a lot of stories about the next 2022 game, and many are eager about the sequel to 2019’s revival of Modern Warfare. Now, Infinity Ward seems to have thrown fuel to the fire by deleting its social media photos in an apparent attempt to attract the attention of Call of Duty fans.
Gamers who visit Infinity Ward’s official Twitter account will notice that the developer’s profile photo and banner image have been deleted from the account. Both photos have been changed with nearly black photographs, except for a few little brown smudges on each of the images.
These may be seen on the right side of the profile photo, as well as in the banner image, which is more prominent. Anyone may speculate as to what these photos are hinting, yet it’s possible that the dark images will be filled up over time, showing artwork from the game.
The choice to remove the profile photo and header image seems to be a direct reference to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019. It was not only used extensively in the promotion for the first game, featuring in the reveal trailer, but it also became a meme that immediately went viral on the internet, fast becoming one of the most popular memes on the internet.
As a result of Infinity Ward’s decision to go “dark,” it may be presumed that a revelation of the next Modern Warfare game is on the horizon.
While this is just speculation, it does match to certain significant reports about the game. A recent leak from an insider dubbed @RalphsValve said that the first big Call of Duty 2022 teaser will be released on April 30 – less than a week after the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Vanguard, alike.
Going offline a week before the release of the first official teaser makes sense from a marketing point of view. Regarding the entire revelation, @RalphsValve said that it will take place in early May.
The game, which is supposed to be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (with roman numerals to separate it from the 2009 game of the same name), is said to centre on Task Force 141 and their fight against drug cartels. PT, Escape From Tarkov, and
Rainbow Six Siege-inspired modes, among others, have been teased in various leaks. Previously leaked ACR and Intervention maps from Modern Warfare 2 indicate that classic material from the previous game will also be included.
Because Infinity Ward has teased something significant, fans of the Call of Duty franchise may be in for some big news very soon. Until now, rumours and leaks have been the only reliable sources of information on Infinity Ward’s next game, but it seems that this is about to change.
