Series after series, it looks like the developers of Call of Duty, Infinity Ward and Treyarch, are not yet done with the franchise. Reports revealed that Infinity Ward took the initiative to voice their plans on Infinite Warfare in an all new sub-series after Call of Duty ended its franchise.
Apparently, narrative director Taylor Kurosaki admits that he didn?t have much role in the last Call of Duty: Ghosts that he wants Infinite Warfare to have its own subseries. But more than his subtle role in ?Ghosts,? Kurosaki may have seen the capacity of Infinite Warfare to become a major franchise?
In his interview on the Polygon, Kurosaki said ?We want to establish our own new sub-franchise, our own new branch of the Call of Duty tree. What we are developing here could certainly support multiple games. We’re trying to develop a very rich world that we’re not even close to exhausting.”
Kurosaki also saw the immense success of jumping from Call of Duty 3 to Call of Duty 4 that he thinks the Infinite Warfare, having its own sub-series, will have the same fate as its predecessors. He further explained that ?I’m sure that the Infinity Ward team felt the same kind of tremendous burden when they went from World War II to modern warfare. It’s an entire world with new weapons, vehicles, AI, under-the-hood stuff. We’re doing the exact same stuff here. This is as much of a sea change.”
The Polygon reports that they didn?t want to call it as a reboot. Kurosaki also addressed the fact that the Call of Duty is a classic war story and they have no intention of turning things around and have a total reboot. ?We want to tell first and foremost a classic war story in the great tradition of the genre that Brian and I are both huge fans of. This is my first foray into Call of Duty and telling a war story. I?m so taken by the rich history of the genre,” said Kurosaki.
