“What the hell is that title all about?” I hear you cry? Well let’s just jump into it. Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, will be the main antagonist in the upcoming shooter, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Kit Harington is set to be the villain in Activision and Infinity Ward’s upcoming shooter, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. He’ll be leading up the Settlement Defense Force, which is set to be pretty interesting.
“Kit is an amazing talent and the consummate pro,” said Taylor Kurosaki, narrative director, Infinity Ward. “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.”
If that wasn’t all, Activision also dropped the news that Activision and Infinity Ward worked closely with director Guy Ritchie will also lend his talent for the campaign found in the game.
“Guy Ritchie is a friend of the franchise, so it was great to have him back to work with us, assisting in bringing Kit Harington’s character to life in Infinite Warfare,” added Dave Stohl, studio head, Infinity Ward. “It meant a lot to us to develop the role into everything it could be. We’re excited about the performance Kit delivered and can’t wait to get it out to the public. We’re committed to delivering a compelling story with rich character depth and this was a special opportunity to add to our fantastic cast.”
