Activision has registered a slew of domain names that may point to the direction the company plans to take the Call of Duty series. As you may have guessed, the series could be headed into The Future. Activision registered "callofdutyfuturewarfare.com" as well as variations on the theme like "Advanced Warfare," "Secret Warfare" and "Space Warfare."
By itself, the reservation of some URLs doesn't say much about Activision's concrete plans for the Call of Duty franchise -- they could be reserving those URLs on the mere possibility that the series is headed into the future -- but the thought of Modern Warfare in space is pretty intriguing, and it's a logical step for a series that started in World War II and moved to the present day.
I could see a Future Warfare game as a hard science fiction take on the shooter genre, with an emphasis on what space combat might actually be like 30 or 40 years from now, as opposed to the anything-goes-as-long-as-there-are-lasers school of sci fi that many games use.
What do you think about Future Warfare as an idea?
