It’s that time of year again– the next Call of Duty game has been announced, and as expected, it’s being developed by series creators Infinity Ward for both current- and next-generation platforms.
Titled Call of Duty: Ghosts, the game is said by Activision to be a completely new entry in the Call of Duty franchise. Despite sharing a similar name to one of the main protagonists of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Ghosts features a brand new cast of characters, a new setting, and an all-new story. In addition, the game will be powered by a brand new “next generation Call of Duty engine” rather than the modified Quake engines that powered previous games. While no gameplay or other footage of Ghosts has been revealed as of now, the game’s reveal trailer – seen above – promises a first glimpse during Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox event, which is scheduled to be held on May 21 at 1:00 PM EST.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is in development by Infinity Ward, and will be released on November 5, 2013. The game has been confirmed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and “next generation consoles.”
