Gameplay footage surfaces for Neversoft’s canceled Call of Duty

It appears that some new gameplay footage has surfaced for Neversoft’s canceled Call of Duty game. Before Call of Duty: Ghosts, Neversoft was working on a futuristic Call of Duty game, and this mission served as a means to learn the engine.

This has been confirmed by Brian Bright who was a Project Director at Neversoft. This canceled COD game was codenamed NX1, and the mission you’re about to see has a lot of similarities with the first mission from COD: Ghosts.

As Brian Bright claimed:

“Neversoft pivoted from Guitar Hero to make a futuristic COD game. This mission was on the moon, some experiments with low g and was really about the team learning the engine.”

As said, this mission does remind me of the first mission of COD: Ghosts. The only difference is that this one takes place on a moon base, whereas the mission in Ghosts takes place in a space station. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if Infinity Ward kept that mission concept. After all, that space mission was a really cool and memorable one.

Interestingly enough, Neversoft developed the game’s Extinction mode. So, while its campaign mode was canned, the team at least worked on something related to COD.

From what I know, this build has not been leaked to the public. And, sadly, the only gameplay footage we have is from X/Twitter. This means that it’s of low quality. It sucks, I know. However, there isn’t currently any YouTube link for it. Once someone uploads a higher version on YouTube, I’ll be sure to update this post.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
