Occultism and skulls – new Call of Duty teaser?
For several weeks now, Ashton Williams, a community specialist at Infinity Ward, has been posting rather puzzling gifs on her twitter account, which most likely herald a new Call of Duty. Contrary to the suspicion of some, it is unlikely to be Ghosts 2.
Although Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII (4) turned out quite a big commercial success, it cannot be denied that, for many players, it remains a controversial production – remember that Treyarch completely gave up the singleplayer campaign. But since – as it is commonly known – a year without the next installment of the popular FPP shooting series is a year gone in vain, the dissatisfied fans, hankering for the singleplayer campaign look forward to the upcoming installment, this time – traditionally – developed by Infinity Ward. It seems that the announcement of this game may be closer than it would seem. Since the end of November, Ashton Williams, a community specialist at the Los Angeles division, has been sharing strange death and occult gifs on her twitter account.
These gifs were immediately associated with one production – 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts. In that game, the heroes' masks were decorated with skull paintings, which are also one of the main motifs of the above tweets. So is Infinity Ward preparing Ghosts 2 for 2019? theory is denied by Jason Schreier, editor at Kotaku and a relible source of info, renounces this theory. In his post on the ResetEra forum, he stated quite strongly that the sequel to Ghosts is just not going to happen.
So what’s Infinity Ward got brewing? There is some talk of Modern Warfare 4. The only question is how the strange gifs from Williams would be related to that game? Maybe they indicate the creation of a completely new sub-series of the Call of Duty franchise, where we will fight an occult sect? Or maybe they point to the fact that the next installment of the cult cycle will focus exclusively on the very popular, cooperative zombie mode? Maybe it's just a joke, an attempt to confuse players with different theories. Or maybe Williams just felt like sharing creepy on Twitter? Only time will tell.
