Less then 24 hours after an official website and teaser goes online, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has unofficially been unveiled and it's creating a buzz among gamers.

The first official trailer has been unveiled and it features Kevin Spacey as the villainous head of a Private Military Company giving a speech to the audience about the flaws of democracy while championing a dictatorship. The game will be set in a future were PMC's have grown to have great influence around while one of them has turned against America.

Jordan Devore, Managing News Editor of Destructoid, was the first to break the story before other new sources picked it up. In no time; ads regarding the November 4 release of Call of Duty: Advance Warfare started appear online.

The game has already created buzz among gamers and pundits in the media. Several gamers have refereed to Spacey's involvement as making the game feel like "House of COD" (a reference to House of Cards).

Luke Plunkett of Kotaku response to trailer was, "If you thought the second Black Ops game took some technical liberties, hoo boy. This one is going full-blown science-fiction."

Luke Reilly of IGN further added, "The trailer itself is bursting with futuristic instruments of war, including soldiers clad in powerful Elysium-esque exosuits, large transport aircraft that can cloak themselves from the naked eye, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol-style gloves that allow the wearer to scale buildings, and hoverbikes."

When a short documentary was released on May 1; many in the game media were quick to speculate that the PMC's are going to be the villains. Others have also been quick to point-out the similarities between the Call of Duty: Advance Warfare premises with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

This announcement has also killed all rumors regarding a new game in the Modern Warfare-arc. This is due to Activision referring to Modern Warfare, Black Ops and Ghosts as their flagship series during the conference call back in February.

Call of Duty: Advance Warfare will be the eleventh game in the popular series that has sold over 100 million copies and on average has 40 million active players a month.
