Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 players got a little surprise today in the game's Nuk3town map: what appears to be a teaser for this year's Call of Duty game, which is rumored to be titled Infinite Warfare.

Activision and Black Ops 3 developer Treyarch are currently hosting a "Nuk3town Weekend," a 72-hour long playlist featuring the popular map that first appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Players have noticed that at the end of a match, the explosive finale has changed a bit: A massive, futuristic airship now flies overhead and a mysterious logo appears when the "Nuk3town offline" message appears.

There's also a skull-like image in the background, likely a reference to the mask that Simon "Ghost" Riley wears in Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare series.

Here's a peek at those teases:
