Infinity Ward Developing... Something for the Valve-backed Piston
Those tiny, modular PCs that Valve is backing are finally getting some big studio love. Infinity Ward, developers on the excessively popular Call of Duty franchise, is apparently developing something for Xi3's Piston.
The report originated from a post to the company's Facebook page, picturing an Infinity Ward-branded Piston PC with a caption reading, "game development."
Infinity Ward posted another image of the PC to its Twitter account, with a Tweet of, "What's this?"
Well, it's a Piston. What they're doing with it is the real mystery.
Activision, current owners of Infinity Ward, announced last month that a new Call of Duty was set to arrive sometime in 2013. What that may or may not have to do with those mini-PCs, I have absolutely no idea.
Xi3 first revealed the Piston at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. Valve reportedly invested an undisclosed amount into the project, which may be one of several initiatives to make it easier for gamers to get Steam's "Big Picture" mode into their living rooms.
