Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 developer Infinity Ward is seemingly working on an open world RPG at their Kraków, Poland based studio.
A now fulfilled job posting (that was screenshotted and posted on Twitter) advertised a narrative director position whose responsibilities would include providing “the best narrative and cinematic experience in an open world RPG”.
Spotted by GamesRadar, the tweet from Call of Duty news account @charlieINTEL makes clear this is for an “unannounced AAA project” with a non-linear narrative set in an open world.

The project, though its existence is still unconfirmed, appears to be in a very early stage considering Infinity Ward has only just finished advertising for the narrative director that will “set the overall vision and direction” of the game.
The developer is currently advertising for 15 other positions at its Kraków studio but none of them mention the open world game. While one senior character artist position mentions an “unannounced AAA project”, nothing directly links this to the open world game, and the other positions are all fairly vague.
Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is due to be released on October 28 this year and the studio also confirmed to be working on Call of Duty: Warzone 2, which is said to include “groundbreaking innovations”.
