Call Of Duty: Future Warfare: A Cancelled CoD Project From Neversoft! [VIDEO]

Internally called NX1, it was developed by Neversoft, formerly of Tony Hawk fame, during the Xbox 360 era.


CharlieIntel discovered the canceled project, which was confirmed by a former Neversoft developer who worked on it.

The video was first shared on Twitter by @mangafigurines and then uploaded to YouTube. In it, we can see a first-person cinematic scene where the character’s spacesuit is broken on the surface of the moon and he has to rush to a nearby base because of an attack. Another video has also surfaced, courtesy of @catgurlfriend. It shows NX1 in multiplayer mode in a ruined desert city (the map was called Sandstorm).The character switches between two Glock 18s and a futuristic DMR-looking rifle.

Brian Bright can vouch for his credibility. At Neversoft, he worked on Guitar Hero and 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts before the studio merged with Infinity Ward in 2014.

Bright wrote that NX1 was created after several developers left Infinity Ward to form Respawn Entertainment. At the time, Neversoft was moving on from Guitar Hero to develop a futuristic Call of Duty.The mission in question was set on the moon, there were some low-gravity experiments, and it was all about the studio learning the engine, as they had previously made Guitar Hero titles on the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater engine.He thinks it was made to replace Call of Duty: Ghosts.They had two or three campaign missions and did a lot of work on the multiplayer (he led the multiplayer segment) before it was canceled. They were very impressed with the first multiplayer escort mode in the franchise (it ended up having to wait until 2020’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War), and there’s footage of it out there, according to him.

So Call of Duty’s NX1 project was a prequel to Ghosts, but it’s pretty similar to 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which was a similarly sci-fi, solar-system spanning game. The franchise hasn’t returned to that style since. Perhaps not coincidentally.
