Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the next game in Activision's first-person shooter series for the PC Xbox One and PlayStation 4, will feature actor Kit Harington, best known for playing Jon Snow in HBO's Game of Thrones TV series. Harington will play the unnamed main villain in the game's sci-fi storyline.
Game Informer, which features the game in its latest print issue, stated:
Infinite Warfare's narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki, said "Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. We can't wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character."
The report added that film director Guy Ritchie is also working with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare developer Infinity Ward on the game, but his specific job was not revealed. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is due for release on November 4.
