'Call of Duty: Ghosts' Release Date Announced
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be the next game released in the popular Activision franchise, and is scheduled for wide release on Nov. 5, according to an announcement from the gaming publisher.
Built on a "next generation" engine by developer Infinity Ward, Call of Duty: Ghosts promises to be a step above past games in the franchise. Activision claims that it will represent the "next generation" of the realistic first-person military shooting game.
“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,” executive producer of Infinity Ward Mark Rubin said in a press release. “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."
Avid players of the game will be able to view gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Ghosts played on the next-generation Xbox on May 21, when the new console will be announced, at Microsoft's headquarters.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and "next generation consoles" on Nov. 5.
