Activision has launched a teaser site for the next version of Call of Duty, revealing an image of Ghost, one of the characters in the Call of Duty series. The Ghost image is especially interesting, as it not only means the announcement of the next version of Call of Duty is almost upon us, but also adds some validity to a past leak and may even confirm the storyline of the new title.
Last week, UK retailer Tesco accidentally slipped the title "Call of Duty: Ghosts" on PS3 cover art before the listing was removed. The thought is Call of Duty: Ghosts - if that turns out to be the name - will focus on the more secretive and covert side of soldiering in the modern day. Lieutenant Simon "Ghost" Riley is an operator in the British Special Air Service, who first entered the series in 2009 with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The leaked album art revealed that the game is once again in development by the folks at Infinity Ward and, contrary to earlier beliefs, the game will be coming out for current-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, not just for the PlayStation 4 and new Xbox due out later this year. Neither Activision nor the group at Infinity Ward have confirmed anything specific for the new title, except that the title will launch in the fourth quarter of 2013, like every other Call of Duty title.
According to a leaked poster obtained by IGN, the new Call of Duty will be revealed on 1 May. The date lines up with last year’s Call of Duty announcement, which debuted on May 1st during the NBA Playoffs.
Until then, Activision's teaser will have to do.
