Activision may have accomplished a first across all industries this week. No, we're not talking about releasing a remastered classic - many studios have done that. Instead, the company seemingly confirmed news with a poop emoji.
On Wednesday, the official Call of Duty Twitter account dug up a 2014 tweet from one Angus Vanderslott, who wrote, "If I ever heard the words 'Call of Duty 4 PS4 remaster' I will literally sh*t my pants with excitement." Activision's delayed response? Poop emoji, pants emoji.
Brilliant work here, all around. Of course, this follows purported leaks earlier this week about an upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which will reportedly launch alongside a brand new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare this year and be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Activision still hasn't officially announced the game, but that Twitter response is as good as confirmed in our books. With an Infinite Warfare reveal rumoured for next week, we may know more before too long. Also, Activision is apparently teasing the next big Call of Duty in the newly updated Nuk3town map for Black Ops III.
Furthermore, a leak from a Canadian retailer - which lists the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date for 4 November - also features promotional imagery for Modern Warfare Remastered, and says that it comes with the campaign and 10 multiplayer maps.
That's a pretty solid package, certainly, but not a complete one: Modern Warfare shipped with 16 maps back in 2007 and added another four via downloadable content. Assuming the signage is legitimate, it's not yet known whether Activision plans to release more maps as DLC or if they just opted to trim down the package and upgrade the best of the best for the Remastered edition.
The retail image suggests that Canadian players will pay $30 more for the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare that comes with Modern Warfare Remastered, although we'll have to see how the actual Indian pricing shakes out if that bundle package is released elsewhere.
