Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered announced

Recently, hints and then videos began to appear indicating that a new Call of Duty announcement was imminent. Today, the curtain has been pulled back to reveal Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare—and Modern Warfare Remastered. Following the main line’s tendency to go futuristic, the new release will take the fight beyond Earth and into the solar system. The story follows Tier 1 Special Operations pilot Captain Reyes as he commands one of the planet’s last warships, the Retribution, against the fascist Settlement Defense Front. A barren and overpopulated Earth relies on resources supplied by its colonies, but the Front is trying to secure all off-world outposts. From the Retribution, players will also launch sorties in the Jackal jet fighter. Also, all Legacy and Digital Deluxe packages will come with a download for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which will include the base game and 10 multiplayer maps. To learn more, check out Infinity Ward’s livestream today at 12:30 p.m. (CST). Screenshots of Infinity can be found below those of Modern Warfare Remastered (a FAQ includes more details).
