Infinity Ward sees "a lot of potential" pertaining to Kinect controls in future Call of Duty titles

Call of Duty: Ghosts will support Kinect controls when it comes to navigating the menus and other UI related items, but Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin has said he would like to "explore" using Kinect for more in-game actions as there is a lot of "potential for voice in the game".

Speaking with OXM, Rubin said the team is "doing some stuff," with Kinect but is not ready to discuss anything particular just yet.

"It's mostly menu stuff, so you can work all the menus with Kinect - that's a big thing that Microsoft's pushing," he said. "We need to see where it goes before we jump into it.

"We've never really been the company that thinks it has to be first in the line for tech. It's the tortoise and the hare thing, and we'd rather be the tortoise, take our time on the tech and make sure it's right. So we haven't jumped into that yet, but some really interesting things came up, some interesting ideas - especially the voice, there's a lot of potential for voice in the game, and I'm hoping we can explore that.

"Whether it makes it into this game, I'm not a 100% sure, but definitely in the future I think there's some really cool stuff there."

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches on November 5 worldwide on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360. It will also be a launch title for PS4 on November 15 and on Xbox One on November 22.
