Activision Officially Announces Call of Duty: Ghosts
In case you’ve been waiting with bated breath for the latest annual installment of Call of Duty, you don’t have much longer to go. Activision’s officially announced Call of Duty: Ghosts, which has long been rumored to be the next game. We don’t have a whole lot of information just yet, but there is a teaser that reveals when we should know a whole lot more about it.
Ghosts is being developed by Infinity Ward, which you may remember was behind the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and supposedly features “an all-new story, all-new characters, [and] an all-new Call of Duty world” set in a new next-gen engine. That’s mostly just PR for: “This is a new game.” Regardless, folks will eat it up.
Here’s the teaser for Ghosts they released with the announcement:
As the video says, we should know more come May 21st — Ghosts will apparently be at the next-gen Xbox reveal event. This is an obvious win for Microsoft, but it’s hard to say what exactly it’ll mean going forward. There’s a fair chance that they’ve worked out some kind of DLC exclusivity, but that’s just speculation currently.
After all, they’ve already stated that Call of Duty: Ghosts will release November 5th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, as well as next-gen platforms at some point.
