Rumour: Call of Duty: Ghosts Is the Next Entry in Series, Firing onto PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Dubious details deployed on YouTube

Remember that huge pinch of salt you used for this week’s Final Fantasy XV rumour? Sweep it up and take hold of it again, because a YouTube leaker claims to have obtained secret intel on the PlayStation 4’s first Call of Duty game. According to ‘Drift0r’, the information comes courtesy of a “very legitimate” source. At least he sounds believable, huh?

In the video, the snoop states that the next generation sequel will be named Call of Duty: Ghosts, and will be set in a futuristic climate similar to the Black Ops series. However, despite the modern backdrop, the title will force you to use weapons from the past. This will supposedly be a plot point – perhaps due to a technology failure.

One of the biggest tweaks to the gameplay will revolve around player movement, as you’ll now be able to dash and slide, as well as peek around corners and roll from side-to-side while prone. The title will also supposedly feature dynamic load screens, showing you rappelling from a helicopter or breaching a window prior to a multiplayer match. That sounds pretty neat.

The thing that leads us to disbelieve the rumour is the insinuation that the title will be exclusive to next generation platforms such as the PS4. With an install base of almost 150 million users across the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we just can’t imagine that Activision will leave such a big audience in the lurch. Perhaps the leaker got his wires crossed on that detail.

Everything else sounds reasonable, though. According to the video, the publisher is aiming for a 1st May announcement. Again, we recommend approaching with serious caution before you put too much stock into this rumour. Still, aside from the platforms, nothing sounds out of the realms of possibility, does it? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.

I can't see the next Call of Duty skipping current consoles, there's just no way.



JavierYHL said:

well maybe another call of duty with a different name will be exclusive to the xbox 720...well like pokemon x and y so activision will earn even more

@ShogunRok Agreed. Activision tends to release everything on everything. Call of Duty will still sell millions on PS3 and Xbox 360 this year.

How is this not a rip-off of Ghost Recon? Tom Clancey can't be thrilled lol. But seriously... why the same exact skull bandana mask thing with the tac gear? It's old

Either they're doing Call of Duty: Ghosts on the 720 and PS4 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 on the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U (with the PC getting both) or they're doing something new instead of Modern Warfare 4 because they're aware of the COD4:MW vs COD:MW4 name confusion.

@charlesnarles Just to clarify, the picture is of 'Ghost' from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. We don't have any assets of the rumoured Call of Duty: Ghosts game. I was just putting two and two together.

Still enjoy the campaigns, but pretty bored with the online portion of the franchise. Played religiously from 08-11 online. Ever since MW3 I just kind of lost interest in competitive multiplayer.

They'll probably release them on both current and next gen consoles just like they did with Black Ops II, maybe with an early release for the PS4 and 720.

Not really into COD myself, but I like the side modes and the they're some of the few games still including split-screen multiplayer these days. This does sound interesting though and my cousin keeps bugging me to get COD so maybe I'll bite the bullet on this one.

It'd be a system seller for sure, but I'd imagine it releasing on both current and next gen systems.
