In other Call of Duty news, Activision has announced that you can buy a new voice pack that makes Method Man the Infinite Warfare announcer.

Don't expect another space-set Call of Duty for a long time - Activision has at last admitted what was clear all along - fans did not like last year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Game sales were down year-on-year and revenue was down too - despite the allure of Modern Warfare Remastered if you stumped up the cash for Infinite Warfare's pricier editions.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's space setting "didn't resonate" with fans, Activision exec Eric Hirshberg admitted to investors this evening during a just-finished financial call. The result? "It wasn't success we planned."

When Activision announced plans to remaster the much-loved Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, fans of the series rejoiced. But when Activision announced that the only way to get the game was to buy the expensive Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition - or its digital equivalent - fans recoiled in horror. Suffice it to say, Activision's refusal to sell Modern Warfare Remastered separately didn't go down well.
So, there were plenty of Call of Duty fans, only interested in Modern Warfare Remastered, who decided against buying Infinite Warfare's £79.99 edition because, well, that's a lot of money to fork out just to play the remaster of a nine-year-old game.
Well, now the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare has been reduced as part of Black Friday madness. At Amazon it's down to £49.99, which is £30 cheaper than it was at launch.
Launch sales of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare were down 48.5 per cent compared to last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Both Infinite Warfare and Blops 3 launched on a similar Friday in November. Both games had a huge marketing push. But, for a number of reasons, Infinite Warfare sold only half as well.
That's not to say Infinite Warfare flopped - far from it. Infinity Ward's sci-fi shooter was still 2016's second-largest launch in the UK - behind FIFA 17 - despite losing half its sales year-on-year.

This year's Call of Duty has a YOLO mode.
This is an odd one. Lewis Hamilton, eminent Snapchatter and reigning Formula One world champion, is making an appearance in this year's Call of Duty. It's not the first superstar cameo in Call of Duty, of course - he follows in the footsteps of the likes of Kevin Spacey, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kiefer Sutherland - but it's certainly one of the strangest.
The new Call of Duty lets you end a competitive multiplayer match with a devastating nuke - but it's rock hard to trigger.
The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta features three maps and four modes, Infinity Ward has confirmed over at the Activision blog.
The beta gives players a chance to use the new Combat Rigs system. These are suits chosen by players that provide tactical options. You can swap mid-match to help take a different approach.
The beta includes three of the six different Combat Rigs that will be in the game when it launches on 4th November. They are Warfighter (mid-range assault), Merc (heavy defense and suppressive fire), and Synaptic (a droid optimised for speed and close quarters combat).
If you install both Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare plus Modern Warfare Remastered, you need at least 130GB of space free on your hard-drive.
That's according to the back of the PlayStation 4 version of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition, which itself was revealed by a French retailer (thanks, Charlie Intel).
Now, it comes as no surprise to learn that the two games' combined installation size is larger than a single Call of Duty, but 130GB total is something of an eyebrow-raiser. That's over a quarter of your 500GB console hard-drive.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered requires the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare disc be inserted in order to play.
That's if you buy Infinite Warfare on disc. As you'd expect, if you download the game you don't need the disc.
Charlie Intel spotted that the recently-launched Modern Warfare Remastered page on the Call of Duty website includes the following note:
As per Activision's marketing deal with Sony for this year's Call of Duty, the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta goes live on PlayStation 4 a week before it does on Xbox One.

The second week of the beta begins on PS4 and Xbox One at 5pm on 21st October, and runs until 24th October.

Sony has secured exclusive early access to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered campaign on PlayStation 4 - but you have to pre-order one of the more expensive versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to get it.
As already announced, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is included with the Legacy Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and Legacy Pro versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Activision has insisted there's no other way to get the game, and in the process angered many Call of Duty fans only interested in revisiting what many consider to be the best game in the series.
Now, if you pre-order either of those versions on PlayStation 4, you get early access to the Modern Warfare Remastered campaign. This means you can play it on 5th october 2016 - 30 days before it's available on PC and Xbox One and when Infinite Warfare goes on general release.

Last night, Activision Blizzard posted its quarterly financial results and - no surprise, really - it is doing just fine.

Across all three brands last year, players spent 10bn hours playing and 32bn hours spectating Activision games. Combined, that total is roughly equal to the total number of hours spent watching Netflix by its entire userbase worldwide.
UPDATE 06/05/2016 12.08am: Activision has responded to the criticism over its Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer.
In an earnings call Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg addressed the backlash by saying it was nothing new and that even with the criticism, the Infinite Warfare trailer still received more likes per view than any other Call of Duty trailer.
He furthermore noted that the same thing happened when Black Ops 2 was revealed, yet it went on to become the most successful game in the series' history.
It looks like Call of Duty is - finally - leaving the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 behind.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has now been officially revealed, following rumours that it would be set - at least partially - in space.
The game's debut trailer was released this morning and teases a campaign that ventures even further into the realms of sci-fi than the likes of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare managed to, with the presumed protagonist Lt. Reyes at one point commandeering what can be best described as a space jet.
It's not clear whether Infinite Warfare is linked to Infinity Ward's previous game under the Call of Duty banner, Ghosts.
