Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare IS set in the same universe as Modern Warfare

Not long to go until the anticipated arrival of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and some other little game called Infinity Wardfare or something that’s attached to it… Aaah I had you going there didn’t I? I’m actually really looking forward to CoD: Infinite Warfare, with Modern Warfare Remastered just being a great bit of icing on the cake!

Anyway, today I bring you a fan theory that’s come from Twitter user @Blade_151 regarding where Infinite Warfare sits in the annals of Call of Duty. Check out his Tweet below.

The image is of an official poster that it shows the classification of the Retribution ship that is due to feature heavily in the game, which states:

“Retribution’s hull classification is SWC-141 (Space Warship Carrier). The numerical designation was recommended by representatives of the Russian Federation in remembrance of the heroic actions of Task Force 141 in rescuing Russian President Boris Vorshevsky.”

Now if you remember the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, President Vorshevsky is rescued in a joint operation by Delta Force and Task Force 141 in a Siberian diamond mine. These events are canon within the Modern Warfare trilogy, and that they are not just nodded to but literally referenced in black and white (OK a kind of dark blue and white), is pretty much irrefutable proof that Infinite Warfare is set in Modern Warfare’s future.

I would very much say that this falls outside of rumor and speculation and is so specific in who and what it mentions that it must be fact.

I’ve heard that some people are opinionated with regards to Call of Duty, and that Infinite Warfare is no different – so with that in mind, tell us what you think about this revelation in the comments below, the RGM Forums or on Twitter.
