Call of Duty: Ghosts confirmed

Latest entry in Activision's first-person shooter series revealed as "next generation of Call of Duty"; due out November 5.

Activision today confirmed Call of Duty: Ghosts, this year's entry in the first-person shooter series.

The confirmation comes by way of the official Call of Duty Twitter account, which teased this game represents the "next generation of Call of Duty."

As was rumored, it appears Infinity Ward is developing Call of Duty: Ghosts. The studio today tweeted an image (at right) of a splintered and broken Ghost face.

No further details on Call of Duty: Ghosts were revealed, though Activision is expected to unveil the title in full later today.

Today's announcement follows a series of retailer leaks.

Retailers Amazon and GameStop are currently accepting preorders for Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The GameStop product page suggests Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch November 5, which tallies with a leaked promotional poster.

This is a breaking news story. More information will be added.

I called my local retailer to pre-order Tom Duty's Call of Clancy: Ghost Ghosts Recon.
They had no idea what I was talking about.

They need to knock it on the head as it's nourishing it's own decay. I'd buy a revised Cod 4 with dedicated servers twice over.

Meh , I ll see what the reviews say before buying this. I got bored of COD a while back.

the good news is that with every new COD game there is hope that the COD franchise dies just a little bit, so hopefully a few more games and COD will die for good

Ill not buy this one.  MW2 and MW3 were horried games and multiplayer was a joke.  Treyarch keeps COD alive.

You know, the only time I'd be excited for Call of Duty news is if the title of the game was called, Call of Duty: The Finale.

Because CoD had been disappointing me alot, I just hope this gonna be as fresh as BOII, and Infinity Ward do not creat dumb and awful product thinking only in money.

This fits the pattern of the Modern Warfare Black Ops releases.  Sure this doesn't have Modern Warfare in the title, but it involves Ghost so basically it is a prequel.  Modern Warfare 0 lol.

you know, what's really surprising here is that it isn't called Modern Warfare 4.

Apart from the abomination that was MW3, I like Call of Duty games. They are fun, fast paced and addictive. I've been playing them since Call of Duty 2. It would be good to see better stories though, I think Call of Duty 2 had the best one, the D day bit was epic. I would also like if they added vehicles in the multilayer like in COD 3, which Is the one I probably played the most online.

The title of this game should be, "Call of Duty: Moneygrabbers--Declassified." Got a parody title: "Call of Booty: Modern Horseplay."

Damn I thought it said "LAST entry in Activision's first person shooter seires . . . ". Got excited there for a moment XD.

This is being "unveiled" at MS event so i hope that means they won't be present or "as present" at their E3 event, MS needs to stop pretending up exclusives and actually make them

Are they using a new engine?

If that's the case, I might pick it up.

If not, well, consider me out.

Any bets that the main antagonist is a guy in a white sheet with eyeholes cut out?

This game will be the same as all the others. 3.5 hour campaign with ho-hum multiplayer

i bought MW3 and felt cheated out of my purchase so i stopped playing after 1st prestige and i just Skipped COD: Zombie overload 2  - Ive been away for so long that this COD could actually make me interrested in playing again if theres enough Multiplayer Game play changes that are made

I've learned a lot from the yearly releases of CoD.  I obviously learned that it's really the same game over and over again, just a different/continuing story.  Here's the kicker:  I enjoy them.  However, I refuse to pay $60 to the publisher for a 4-hour campaign.  I'll forevermore pick up CoD titles used for a max of $15 (assuming the next-gen will let me do that).

I Bet my left Testicles that this will sell even though it is like a Map expansion or DLC of BLOPS 2. uhhh the IRONY. (But seriously Im gonna bet my left testicles)

an appropriate title since none among the living will be playing it. Join the CoD boycott for a better shooter.

This game is actually about the $100 I wasted on MW3 that will forever haunt me.

Oh the other things I could have gotten...

@daemon029  

lol so true,  people dont call them Copy and Paste franchise for no reason.  Soon they will have COD: Skyrim Edition, after COD : Minecraft Edition etc etc.

@wilhelmalexis It has nothing to do with the character Ghost. This is more along the lines of you play as "ghost" soldiers, people with no identities/don't exist kinda thing

@wilhelmalexis Modren warfare died in MW2.  I will never buy another game from Infinityward.  They took a great game style from CofD4 MW and turned it  MW2 and MW3.  I was happy WaW and Black Ops 1/2 by treyarch brought new features into the game that didn't totally break game play.

@wilhelmalexis If u play tht mission listen carefully to the script it explains alot, i think i remembered something about him wearing a fireproof vest and plus he got shot once which there is a risk of still living

@DingKing Yet sooooo many people will line up at midnight to be the first to get their hands on it.

@BrazObama   I agree with the MW3 comment but as far as Zombie Ops 2 is a great zombie game with some multiplayer on the side I guess.  Latest DLC Zombie map is a lot of fun.  Overall all the since the last two MW have just been horrid and shouldn't have been tagged Call of Duty b/c it game the whole series a taboo
