After a major leak of media and information on the next Call of Duty entry, Activision have released the official reveal trailer, originally scheduled to debut on May 4. Introducing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games, and starring none other than Kevin freakin’ Spacey!
Releasing on November 4 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Advanced Warfare is the first of the franchise to have undergone the now mandatory 3-year development cycle. That doesn’t mean we’ll be getting a new CoD title only every three years from now on, as Infinity Ward and Treyarch are also working on their own entries, alternating in release amongst themselves. Check out the reveal trailer embedded at the bottom of this article, which showcases the futuristic hoverbikes, mech-suits and exoskeletons we’ll be able to pilot and establishes the story, focused on a private military corporation headed by Kevin Spacey, which has turned on the United States government.
