It’s official: Call of Duty: Ghosts is real. It’s currently in development at Infinity Ward, and we won’t have to wait long to get our grubby mitts on it. While the full reveal of the game has been scheduled for a little later this month, we do have a live-action teaser to get you properly in the mood.
This is the next generation of the long-running FPS franchise, promising to raise the bar yet again. When it arrives on November 5th, Ghosts will deliver an all-new gameplay experience, complete with all-new characters, story and setting – and completing the deal? It’s built on a new, next-gen gameplay engine that will redefine the series.
Mark Rubin, executive producer at developer Infinity Ward explains the sudden change in direction:
Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we’re not resting on our laurels. We saw the console transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for Call of Duty. So we’re building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players. We can’t wait to share them with our community.
While teasers are good, and fancy words are lovely, the real acid test will come when we’re shown gameplay from the new title. That time will come on May 21st (PST), when Activision takes centre stage at the Xbox: The Next Generation Revealed event put on by Microsoft.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will ship on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 5, 2013, with next generation platforms following some time after that.
If you don’t need any further information before knowing that you really, really want this game, Call of Duty: Ghosts is available for pre-order at retail outlets all over the world. Check with your local store for details!
