On it, it refers to the Retribution, the colossal spaceship you’ll helm during the single-player portion of the game and your hub for selecting various missions. Furthermore, it’s classified as SWC-141(Space Warship Craft), in which the easter egg lies.

If you remember the single-player offering in Modern Warfare 2, then you no doubt heard of Task-Force 141, consisting of various protagonists looking to hunt down the game’s main villain Vladimir Makarov.

The mention, in remembrance of the task force, could simply be a nod to the iconic title, so don’t be too disheartened if Captain Price isn’t mentioned.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available on November 4th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
