With the energy palpable ahead of Sony’s big GamesCom showing in Cologne next week, the Spanish arm of mega retailer GameSpot has hinted that Call of Duty: Ghosts could be coming to the PlayStation Vita. Activision’s been coy about the possibility of a handheld port in the past, but with the game due out on every other system under the sun, it doesn’t seem out of the question.

In fact, last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified turned out to be a decent success – despite being developed on a budget as thin as a peeled off piece of string cheese. Of course, retailers do tend to get muddled up from time to time, so this could just be a blunder on the Spanish website’s part.

Still, with GamesCom right around the corner, and the Japanese giant in need of generating some interest in its portable, we suppose that an announcement is possible. It would certainly tally with comments made by company executive Shahid Ahmad earlier in the year, when he hinted that a major game was on its way to the system. We guess that we’ll find out next week.

Update: As pointed out in the comments, Activision's community manager Dan Amrich has Tweeted that this is merely an "over excited retailer". He added: "Right now, only Angry Birds: Star Wars is confirmed for Vita from Activision." Sure, but could that change next week?
