We’re finally starting to know a bit more about this year’s Call of Duty installment. The first teaser trailer for developer Infinity Ward’s latest first-person shooter has been released. The teaser, which is called Know Your Enemy, stars what seems to be the game’s core villain.
The 30 second trailer has a distorted video clip where a hulking figure says that he will “bury you in darkness.” There’s not a lot more to glean from the trailer, but the words “Nuketown Offline” does flash on-screen at around the 7 second mark. This could be a reference to the fact that the Nuketown map in Black Ops III is currently teasing the next installment in Activision’s biggest series.

Rumors have been circulating on the internet this week about what Infinity Ward’s next game will be, with most of them stating that the title will be Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Others stated that a reveal would be coming this upcoming week. This teaser trailer lends credence to that rumor, and we very well could know more sooner rather than later.
While Infinity Ward sparked a FPS revolution with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, their latest game was largely viewed by both critics and gamers as a let-down. Call of Duty: Ghosts released in November 2013, and was a high profile launch title for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game’s campaign ended with a cliffhanger, suggesting a sequel was in the plans, but that could’ve changed in the past 3 years.
Either way, we should know more about what Infinity Ward has been working on since then soon. Activision is dropping hints and teases left and right at this point, and it looks like we’ll know more exactly what the 2016 Call of Duty game will be later this week.
