Yesterday rumors were flying about that Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, was involved in the new Call of Duty thanks to a video of him in a mo-cap rig. Activision has revealed that not only is he in the game but he's actually playing Infinite Warfare's villain, marking a rather dramatic shift to the kind of character Harington usually plays.

Infinite Warfare's narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki, said "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.”

The publisher also stated that Guy Ritchie, who directed Snatch and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., is working with Infinity Ward on the game in an unspecified production support role.
