RUMOR: Call of Duty 2016’s setting is far into the future, takes place in space – UPDATE

Published

UPDATE — March 30th: Shinobi602 has followed up on NeoGAF and posted more details about Call of Duty 2016’s setting. Find those details in our new article here.

Original Story: 

According to a new rumor by industry insider Shinobi602, this year’s Call of Duty title from Infinity Ward takes place “very far” into the future and is based around space combat.

He specifically says that the title will be “full on sci-fi” and stated that this year’s game setting makes Black Ops 3’s setting look like the “stone age.” Infinity Ward experimented with space combat in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ campaign mode; one of the missions was set entirely in space.

Shinobi602 has been an accurate source in the past. Last year, he revealed that Black Ops 3 was coming to last-gen consoles months before Activision officially announced it, even accurately stated that different a studio would be handling it. He also accurately revealed last year that Black Ops 3 would have wall-running and cybernetics.

In addition, EuroGamer has independently stated that one of their sources has also claimed that this year’s game takes place far into the future in space. EuroGamer also state that this year’s title is not a sequel to Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Oh, also, Infinity Ward tweeted this out back in January…

 

Activision has not yet officially announced details about Call of Duty 2016. Previously, Activision has stated that the title is “new,” “innovative,” and “ambitious.” Gameplay from the new title is expected at E3 in partnership with PlayStation. The title is expected to launch in Q4 2016.

Estimated total number of players on PlayStation 4 for each Call of Duty title since 2013

Published

on

Last week, Sony launched the PS4 My Life campaign which allows PlayStation 4 players to see some of their stats. Statistics include overall play-time, top 3 most-played games, rarest trophy, and more.

The rarest trophy statistic provides the exact number of players who earned said trophy. Using this data, Redditor /u/Kalinine has created a report on /r/CallofDuty estimating the total number of players each Call of Duty title since 2013 received on PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that these are simply rough estimations – Activision has not confirmed these numbers.

Black Ops 4’s numbers will appear significantly low due to releasing only 2 months ago. The influx of players from Christmas also have yet to arrive.

In order of highest player count to lowest…

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 54.7M
  2. Call of Duty: WWII – 25.5M
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – 21.3M
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 18.4M
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts – 13.2M
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – 10.6M
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 9.8M

Black Ops III’s player count is incredibly high, likely to it being available for free to all PlayStation Plus members from June 12th to July 11th, 2018.

While this is a rough idea of total player counts, there’s still many variables which contribute to its inaccuracy.

  • It’s assumed that the numbers are global, however this cannot be confirmed.
  • It’s not known whether these numbers are players who launched the titles or simply had them installed.
  • According to Redditors, the numbers span only from November 20th to December 4th, 2018.
  • The author of the report did not include Trophies with a percentage lower than 0.5% to reduce inaccuracy.

What are your thoughts on these numbers? While it may seem worrying to see Black Ops 4’s numbers low, it’s important to take into account all of the aforementioned points.
