As November approaches, gaming fans are gearing up for another round of holiday season game releases. One of the biggest titles to hit store shelves each year is “Call of Duty,” and fans are about to learn just what Activision has in store for them this year. According to a video posted by the official “Call of Duty” YouTube account on Thursday, a “new era” of “Call of Duty” will be unveiled later this week.

The short 12 second video clip doesn't give many details away, but does give players an idea about what's to come. In the video viewers can see the eyes of a “Call of Duty” character, who says: “Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right, and I have the power, so I'm right.”

Luckily for fans of the game, Activision didn't just leave them with that tiny tease of a sneak peek. A second video was also published by the “Call of Duty” YouTube account that was titled “superpower for hire.” That video explored the world of private military corporations, and asked what happens if “they [the PMCs] stop taking orders and start taking over?”

According to the video private military corporations are loyal to no country, available to the highest bidder, and have spent the last 20 years privatizing war. In fact, the video states that the third large company in the world is a PMC that most people have never heard of.

While it's still unclear what the “new era” of “Call of Duty” will be, fans have begun to speculate. Some say it's clear the game is stepping away from the military style combat gamers are used to, and stepping into the world of a hostel PMC takeover. Others say they expect this “new era” to be more of the same.

The official unveiling of the "new era" of “Call of Duty” is reportedly scheduled for May 4, 2014. That's when Activision and Sledgehammer Games will reveal more about this so-called “new era.”
