Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer released, game coming to all platforms

Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer released, game coming to all platforms

The teaser trailer released gives little away, other than the fact that the characters will be wearing masks.

The next iteration of the Call of Duty series has been officially announced.

Call of Duty: Ghosts, developed by Infinity Ward, will be launched on November 5 this year and is headed for the PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and next generation platforms.

Ghosts was accidentally outed by Tesco last week which posted a listing for the title along with the game's box-art on its online store. Further details on the title will be revealed at Microsoft's next generation console press event on May 21.

Other information revealed by Activision boasts that Ghosts will feature an all-new world, story and characters in the game. A live action teaser trailer has also been released, although it gives no further hints other than the characters are likely to be wearing masks.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be powered by a new engine built by Infinity Ward and the developer sees the new console generation as a chance to start afresh with the franchise.

'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,' said Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin. '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.'


Listings for pre-orders of Ghosts have already started popping up with retailers across the country.

Meh, I'm done with COD after the dreary, generic turd that was BLOPS2. It would have to be something new and fresh to bring me back and I very much doubt it will be.

I must admit I'm intrigued, wonder if they're building a new engine

So this could be called "Call of Duty Spec Ops" or :"CoD Commandos".
Expect lots of suppressed weapons, infiltration, the mandatory sniper mission(s).
In short: Take all the cinematic/cool pieces from MW, MW2 and MW3 (i.e. all the submerged entries, the sniper missions, the snow missions, the prison break) and add them into one game. Add ridiculous nicknames (one dude BETTER be called something retarded like "Snow", "Frost" or "Iceman" , else I want my money back).

Looking at it that way, It doesn't actually sound all that crap. Could be worse... could be MW4

Quite glad they're at least taking a new direction away from MW or Blops. Will eventually pick this up for the single player.

And weren't they meant to introduce a new engine 2 games ago? But it looked exactly the same?

BF4 and this cod out the same time, DICE feel comfortable releasing 17 minutes of gameplay footage. IW only feel comfortable releasing a trailer with 0% gameplay footage. Seems to me they need to rush this game to get it out. No thanks.
