Call of Duty: Ghosts Floats onto Various Retail Release Schedules

Posted by Sammy Barker

Leaked box art seems legit

Call of Duty: Ghosts, the next title in Activision’s blockbuster first-person series, is supposedly set to step out of the shadows on 5th November. At least, that’s according to a Target pamphlet, which is promoting the fact that the North American retailer is currently taking pre-orders for the unannounced game. We first heard about the shooter earlier in the year, when a YouTube user uploaded a slew of details about the Infinity Ward-developed release.

Adding fuel to the fire, UK retailer Tesco uploaded the game’s box art earlier today, but the listing was promptly removed. The supermarket included a 30th December release date, which we assume was just a placeholder. Earlier in the year, Activision said that it expects the “new Call of Duty [...] to raise the bar [for innovation] even higher”. We can hear your chortles from here.

According to March’s leaker, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be set in the future but will feature weapons from the past. This will apparently play into the plot, with a technology failure presumably leading to the emphasis on old hardware. You’ll apparently also be able to dash and slide, as well as peek around corners and roll when prone.

The game’s only been listed for the PlayStation 3 thus far, but we suspect that a PlayStation 4 version will also be on the cards. Activision usually announces new Call of Duty titles right around this time, so we doubt that we’re going to have to wait much longer for official details. Are you looking forward to the next entry in the blockbuster series? Let us know in the comments section below.

I guess Activision didn't want to have a name confusion with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.

Everytime I don't want to get a CoD game, they always end up looking cool. Might get this one just for the story.

Actually, now they can start two series, the modern warfare series and ghost series. In addition, the black ops series.

I can't wait to buy this used in protest of Activison half assing the Wii U version(No DLC, slower to get patches etc.)

I will play your game but you won't be getting my money :)

At least it will distract the kids from all the other games I want to do multiplayer on.
