Infinity Ward has been gearing up for their next installment in the Call of Duty franchise, and the title may or may not have just been leaked. Games TM, a UK magazine, released its February issue and it included a ‘Most Wanted Games 2016’ column. In that column, Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 was included, along with this short paragraph:
“Put the departure down to the studio doing ‘too much ‘pew pew’ not enough new new.’ We got a look at what he meant with the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts – a solid, yet unspectacular next-gen debut for the franchise. Infinity Ward will have had three years to work on a follow up, and it needs to showcase the same creative spark that once put in on the map with Modern Warfare back in ’08 if it wants any chance of standing shoulder to shoulder with Sledgehammer and Treyarch.”
The source seems credible, but until you hear anything from Infinity Ward I would take this with a grain of salt. The original Call of Duty: Ghosts, also made by Infinity Ward, was a forgettable entry and was made during a tough period for the developer. A sequel to Ghosts may not get fans excited at first, but it is sure to be better than its predecessor.
Again, until we hear something a little more official then we can only speculate. Until then, what are your thoughts on Call of Duty: Ghosts 2? Surely, Infinity Ward would like to return to Modern Warfare level success but that is easier said than done. It remains to be seen if Ghosts 2 will be able to get them there.
