Infinity Ward is the next studio for the upcoming Call of Duty game if we go with the rotating developer cycle each year. They last worked on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which is considered one of the better developer campaign in the series. It was arguably better than Black Ops 3 and World War 2 so the fans had high expectations for their next project.
In a new job listing for Infinity Ward, which is for a Narrative Scripter, the job overview suggests that they are looking for someone who can help create a single player story campaign for the game.
Come work with the game industry’s brightest on a new, exciting, unannounced title for multiple next gen platforms.
In this hands-on role, you’ll collaborate with scripters, sound designers, writers, and directors to implement voice-over performances in-game across a wide variety of player experiences – from combat to set-pieces.
Some of the requirements are listed as “A strong desire to bring life to game characters through naturalistic and cinematic implementation of vocal performance,” and “A broad understanding of both multiplayer and single player game design,” which hints towards a single player story mode.
There is no detail officially revealed about the next Call of Duty but Activision hasn’t denied that the next game in the series will also ship without a story mode, so there is a good chance it might have one.
