Activision is standing by their policy to release a Call of Duty game every year so it’s no surprise that they’ve announced Call of Duty: Ghosts. A teaser trailer for the game has now been posted online. Of course no gameplay was shown but the trailer teased that we will see this game next at Microsoft’s Next Gen reveal on the 21st of May.
The folks over at Activision had this to say: “Ghosts delivers a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast of characters, all powered by a new, next generation Call of Duty engine that redefines the series for the next generation.”
Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin chimed in on the reason for not doing Modern Warfare 4. “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.”
“Infinity Ward set the gold standard for first-person action for a generation, and they’re going to do it again with Call of Duty: Ghosts,” said Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg. “Ghosts delivers an all-new story, all-new characters, an all-new Call of Duty world, all powered by a next generation Call of Duty engine, which is a leap forward for the franchise. Infinity Ward is going all-in to create the next generation of Call of Duty worthy of the world’s greatest fans.”
I hope they deliver a truly brand new experience with this franchise. Especially now that they will be making a move to the next gen consoles as well. Call of Duty: Ghosts is set for release on November 5th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next generation platforms.
