Activision making Modern Warfare 4 seemed like a no-brainer. Our site and many others labeled this year’s impending release of Call of Duty as Modern Warfare 4 before it was officially revealed, because it made sense. As it turned out, Modern Warfare 4 was nowhere to be found. Instead, what Activision and Infinity Ward revealed was Call of Duty: Ghosts. And while this game stays true to the modern setting that the series has seen in the past few iterations, Infinity Ward was pondering doing a Call of Duty in space.
According to a report from Shack News, Infinity Ward was throwing around the idea of “Space Guns on Jupiter”. Nicknamed at the studio, the idea was gaining traction at Infinity Ward, and it was almost a reality according to Mark Rubin. Unfortunately, Space Call of Duty lost out to the more modern Call of Duty: Ghosts. Rubin says the studio threw around a lot of ideas for this upcoming Call of Duty game. The team looked at Modern Warfare 4, the space game mentioned above, and even a post-apocalyptic Call of Duty title.
Perhaps in another two years we’ll see one of these other options. As for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Rubin says the game is set in the same time frame as the Modern Warfare series, but in a completely different continuity, according to Shack.
For those that are craving some space action in Call of Duty: Ghosts, it looks like you’re still going to get at least a taste. The campaign trailer for Ghosts was revealed earlier this week, and in it we saw some astronaut warfare.
