Call of Duty: Ghosts listed by UK retailer Tesco

Box art for what could be 2013's Call of Duty appears in supermarket listing.

'

UK supermarket giant Tesco has a product listing and box art for the currently unannounced Call of Duty: Ghosts.

The listings cover Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms, though the Xbox 360 listing has already been removed. The PlayStation 3 listing remains at the time of writing, however.

The box art features the Modern Warfare character Ghost and the Infinity Ward logo, though many recent Call of Duty games have split development duties across multiple studios. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was predominantly developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games.

A leaked image from US retailer Target has also appeared, showing a preorder offer for the title. Both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 logos can be seen, and a release date of November 5, 2013, is given.

Activision regularly announces its annual Call of Duty title at this time of year, with 2010's Black Ops, 2011's Modern Warfare 3, and 2012's Black Ops II all being revealed in late April/early May.

Activision declined to comment when approached by GameSpot.

Sounds like a spin off a next gen console game...

Hmm....

Let me be honest with you.  I reckon it looks like Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier.  Activision better not steal another studios' idea. Let's re-make new one, Activision!

Considering Ghost is one of the few characters that I actually like in CoD, I'd be lying if I said I was wasn't intrigued by this news.

A new call of duty for a new generation of consoles perhaps? Maybe just maybe they can produce something that piques my interest, it has been a very long time since I have bought a Call of Duty game, I will keep a keen eye on this.

add black ops styled gore, make the campaign long, let us open close doors(not just *follow somebody whole time) and leave the x hitmarkers out of the campaign, and maybe i will buy this when used.

Bah, this is hardly news. The Gamespot staff will have known about this and had it under embargo since February.

There was one game with "Ghost" in the title, it was in development for a decade and it was eventually cancelled.

Well Modern Warfare reached the #3 so it was expected to be a new name.. BO3 next year, Ghosts 2 the year after and the year after that another new name for the same game.

Please oh please, ditch the "Follow" objective in the SP campaign. Let us do the missions our way for once.

Thank christ a new IP. Let's hope they can re-invent fps like they did with the original modern warfare, unlike the trash that followed it.

Gotta love those CoD haters that bash the game online and then run home home like giggly little girls hugging their copies once the game releases.

The title and cover art make me think spin-off. Thanks to Gears of War Judgment I will never see today's spin-offs the same again and avoid at all cost.

@Karmazyn I wish I knew what you were referring to. I feel somewhat disappointed that I do not or I can't think of it right now.

@Errorcutive I'm not defending it, but the "gameplay changes" demand is kind of off here. It's a first person shooter and it's bound to the legacy of Call of Duty games. There are so many ways you can shoot moving things from a first person perspective and if you change that too much most people will say it has nothing to do with CoD. For example, calling Bioshock a Call of Duty game.

@Sideshow_me will they at least change the graphics system or just copy and paste again?

@bubbalooga We can only hope. I would be cool with waiting a few years if it means having a good quality game.

@Pororong its 'ghosts',it has nothing to do with character 'ghost' i guess :/

@jets78 My guess is that its gonna be a simple upgraded version of their current IW engine. I dont see how Activision is able to produce a new engine when their entire team is working on the game year after year. They make changes to the engine and update it here and there but dont expect a IW 5.0 engine any time soon. Even with the new consoles i dont expect a new engine for another 2-3 years.

@therage416 @bubbalooga Surely we cannot be the only ones who feel this way. I wouldn't mind a hyper futuristic shooter, something that will eliminate the famous 'first to hold trigger/left click wins'. Complexity of counter strike mixed with unreal tournament based on futuristic warfare.

@Sideshow_me @jets78 The engine isn't the problem by any means. IW is a very capable engine, and to be honest what they do to get it running at 60fps looking as good as it is in a year is astounding from a development perspective.
