For the last couple of iterations, Call of Duty has really been pushing the boundaries on what has been possible in the long and successful franchise. If reports are to be believed, the new Call of Duty game due to be announced later this year might continue pushing the envelope. It’s said that the new Call of Duty game is going to be all about battling enemies in outer space.

Developer Infinity Ward, which has previously worked on Call of Duty Ghosts and Modern Warfare, is working on this year’s title as well. According to the report, the new game will be set in the future, even more so than the Black Ops series and Advanced Warfare was.

Call of Duty has flirted with space combat in the recent past, Ghosts had an element of outer space about it, but the as-yet unnamed addition to the franchise is reportedly based firmly in space. Apparently players will take part in combat between warring sci-fi groups in the very distant future.

Even though Infinity Ward is working on the new title it’s not positioned as a direct sequel of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Activision has already confirmed that it’s going to show off gameplay from the new Call of Duty game at the E3 gaming convention later this year in the summer. It hasn’t said anything yet about when this game might be released.
