Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has now been all but confirmed as Activision has filed for two trademarks related to the game with the US trademark Office. Activision filed the two trademarks on Tuesday for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and the other for Infinite Warfare.
Following the leaks which have appeared this week, it never looked in doubt that Infinite Warfare would be this year’s Call of Duty, and while Activision have yet to make an official announcement regarding the game or a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, filing trademarks for the title is as good as an announcement as any.
The information we have seen so far about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare show that the game will be releasing worldwide on November 4, 2016 and will include a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which was released back in 2007 for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The remastered version of Modern Warfare is said to come with the game’s singleplayer campaign as well as 10 multiplayer maps.
However, it looks like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered will only be included in the Legacy Edition of the game which costs $109.99. The standard edition, which will cost $79.99, will only include a copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. If this is the case, it looks likely that Activision will release the remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare separately though, especially given the huge amount of interest in the title. It would seem that gamers are more excited about it than Infinite Warfare itself.
There were rumours in March that this year’s Call of Duty was to be set in the far future and would take place in space. Judging by the game’s box art that has been leaked so far, the rumour looks to be true.
