A job advert has appeared online that seems to suggest new consoles are not that far away. A job advert posted over on the Infinity Ward LinkedIn page makes note that they are looking to hire people to work on a next-gen game. An unannounced next-gen game. Call of Duty 2019, duh.
Call of Duty games are handled by several studios now, and next year will be Infinity Ward’s turn to release a new entry in the popular franchise. So it stands to reason, then, that if the developer is hiring for its next game, which also happens to be a next-gen games, the next-gen consoles should be here next year.
However… I’m sceptical. It could be that the game will release next year on current-gen consoles, and then be re-released alongside the new consoles the year after. For the time being it’s best to not get too hyped up for anything.
