Next Call of Duty focuses on private military corporations

Activision, developer Sledgehammer Games and news organization VICE have teamed up to detail the narrative direction of the next Call of Duty, which, judging by this video, will apparently focus on private military corporations.

A banner on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel points to a full reveal of the franchise's next installment, helmed by developer Sledgehammer Games, on May 4. The Call of Duty series now spans three dedicated development teams on a new three-year cycle. Previously, efforts were split between Infinity Ward and Treyarch.

Founded in Montreal in 1994, VICE is an international magazine and online news organization that focuses on arts, culture and world events. Perhaps best known for its documentaries, VICE also develops a series on HBO, currently in its second season.

Update: Game Informer has announced its next cover will feature Sledgehammer's upcoming Call of Duty game, teasing an in-game shot of heavily armored soldiers.
