Sexy walking deadman, Kit Harington, is moving from the fantasy world to the one of our past. Activision has officially announced that the “Game of Thrones” star will be featured in the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, scheduled for release November 4th.
Taylor Kurosaki, narrative director, Infinity Ward, the developer behind the upcoming game, said,
“Kit is an amazing talent, and the consummate pro. 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.”
Activision and Infinity Ward also worked closely with film director Guy Ritchie, who is familiar with the Call of Duty franchise, having helmed the acclaimed live-action trailer “Surprise” for “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.”
“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.”
Tim Ellis, chief marketing office, Activision, added,
“Gathering this level of talent together for this role speaks to our studio partner’s drive to deliver a powerful narrative in Call of Duty. We challenge ourselves to constantly be fresh and expansive in creating gripping, immersive experiences that are exciting to play for our fans every year.”
