Call of Duty: Infinity Ward May Be Teasing Ghosts 2

Strange Twitter posts may be hinting that Infinity Ward is working on Call of Duty: Ghosts 2.

Developer Infinity Ward may be teasing the next Call of Duty game

Speculation surrounding the next Call of Duty game began when Infinity Ward member Ashton Williams began posting horror-related gifs since the end of last November. The first of these gifs has since been pinned to the top of her Twitter account. 

It doesn’t sound like much, but there are a few things about these posts that fans can’t help but notice. First off, she started posting these gifs well after Halloween, so it’s not like she was riding the Halloween bandwagon. Second, Williams is the Communications Manager for Infinity Ward, so it wouldn’t be unheard of for her to use her social media accounts to hype some kind of announcement. Third, Williams doesn’t appear to have really done anything like this before, or at least not for this amount of time. 

Lastly, Infinity Ward happens to have been the studio that developed Call of Duty: Ghosts. This had led some fans to suggest that the studio is teasing the reveal of a new Ghost game via these seemingly mysterious – and admirably spooky – Twitter posts.

However, there are a few things working against that theory. First off, Call of Duty: Ghosts was not a particularly well-received Call of Duty game. Its sales were disappointing by franchise standards, and reviews of the game often referred to it as generic and incomplete. There’s also the matter of a ResetEra post from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier in which he states that Infinity Ward’s next Call of Duty game isn’t going to be a sequel to Ghosts

So while there’s quite a bit working against a Ghosts sequel at the moment, there’s always a possibility that these posts are referring to some kind of upcoming content related to an Infinity War project. It’s also entirely possible that Williams is just really, really into spooky things. So far as that goes, we certainly can’t blame her
