After publishing the most hated trailer in YouTube history, Activision has a mountain to climb if it’s to restore Call of Duty’s reputation ahead of the launch of Infinite Warfare this November, and it looks like it’ll begin at E3 later this month.

Thanks to a tweet spotted by Gamespot, Activision has revealed that gamers will be granted an “in depth” look Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s in Los Angeles on June 13, though the publisher stopped short of saying exactly where.
However, given Activison has famously decided to skip this year’s E3 and we know Call of Duty’s own presence will come courtesy of the publisher’s currently cosy relationship with Sony, we’d put money on said expose happening at some point during the Japanese giant’s press briefing on the same day.

Activision will be hoping that shifting the focus away from the trailer and on to the actual gameplay will held Infinite Warfare claw back some ground on EA’s Battlefield 1, which will likely benefit from a prize spot at Microsoft’s E3 briefing – given Xbox One and Windows are serving as the ‘lead’ platforms for the shooter.
Little is known about Infinite Warfare’s campaign mode other than it will tell the story of Captain Reyes, pilot of one of Earth’s last remaining warships Retribution. Reyes’ job is to stand as humanity’s last bastion of hope, it appears, fighting off a enemy keen to wipe us off the map in battles staged across the universe.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will launch on November 4, two weeks after Battlefield 1 makes its debut.
