Game of Thrones star Kit Harington (Jon Snow), who plays former Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and now zombie Jon Snow, will be playing the main villain in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
While there’s no inkling of the name of who he’ll be playing, it will be a far cry from the honorable but long-suffering underdog of the Stark family.
Harington’s character will be working with the game’s antagonist faction the Settlement Defense Front, who aim to break free from Earth over the rights of resource mining in the rest of the solar system. This comes to a head in a devastating surprise attack on Earth, which players in Infinite Warfare will have to fight off before taking the fight to the Settlement Defense Front.
Kit Harington isn’t the only well-known celebrity that will be playing a role in Infinite Warfare either; Activision has revealed that Guy Ritchie, famous director of movies like “The Man From UNCLE”, “Snatch”, and both recent “Sherlock Holmes” movies, will be playing an unnamed production role in the making of the game.
Ritchie is reportedly a friend of the Call of Duty franchise, and Activision believes that he will help Kit Harington (Jon Snow) be able to perform his role to the fullest in Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.
Having Kit Harington as a starring role might help to attract gamers to the newest entry in the Call of Duty franchise after it got downvoted into oblivion on YouTube almost as soon as the announcement trailer debuted on YouTube.
With even Mountain Dew pulling its memetic partnership from Call of Duty to put it on Titanfall 2, Activision may be looking at one of the worst-selling Call of Duty games in recent memory, especially considering how well Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 did.
Either way we may get to see how Jon Snow of Game of Thrones does, if his character appears in the game’s E3 trailer next week.
