[Insert 100 emoji here]
Remember how Call of Duty teased a new game by adding Snapchat codes to Black Ops 2? Well, it seems CoD’s marketing team are just generally fans of oblique social media strategies, given its use of emojis to hint at the rumoured Modern Warfare Remaster.
Replying to a nearly year and a half-old tweet about the possibility of such a project, the shooter franchise’s official Twitter account had some choice… symbols to say:
It’s close to a confirmation of both the remaster and – given that that information came from a pre-order card for the new Infinity Ward game – the new series entry’s apparent title, Infinite Warfare, as well as a November 4 release date and the existence of a “Legacy Edition” (presumably the version of the game including Modern Warfare Remastered).
