It comes as absolutely no surprise whatsoever that there is another Call of Duty game on the horizon, but more interesting is the path that newest trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III hints at. The trailer – and we presume the game - may well be taking a leaf out of the book of Deus Ex or even at a stretch Spliced, questioning where cybernetic and genetic enhancement begins and being human ends.

In it, the trailer takes aim at technology itself, particularly at the growth of prosthetics and posits what would happen if cybernetic enhancements similarly became readily available. In typical Call of Duty style, it embellishes this premise, fast forwards these developments a few decades to ask what if man became not just more machine, but a weaponised one at that?

Indeed, you could argue that the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare already started going down this road, offering a view of a world in which a soldier losing an arm is not necessarily a deterrent to him becoming a super-warrior. However, it’s interesting to see Call of Duty hopefully offering up a thought provoking and not entirely impossible premise, nonetheless.

Take a look at the teaser trailer below, with a world reveal trailer of the game itself incoming in the next couple of days.
