While Microsoft hasn’t announced anything related to Call of Duty’s release schedule, Infinity Ward will finally be a new direction for the studio. Of course, we don’t know anything about this Destiny-like Infinity Ward game beyond this description. And if so, Infinity Ward is betting.
Destiny, Bungie’s own shared-world first-person shooter, pioneered a new genre and stayed on top even as other copycats tried to match it. While Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s: The Division was popular, it didn’t reach the heights of Destiny.
Given Infinity Ward’s excellent track record with first-person shooters, if they do indeed make a Destiny-style open-world game, I expect it to be a solid title that shows the studio can do without Call of Duty. Until then, we’ll have to wait and see if anything actually comes out on this alleged new game.
