Call of Duty: Ghosts will come to PlayStation 4

Activision studio confirms new instalment in shooter series coming to PS4; DLC to launch first on Xbox One.

PlayStation Call of Duty fans can rest easy, with confirmation that upcoming first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be coming to the PlayStation 4.

Despite the official announcement for the game coming months after the unveiling of the PlayStation 4 hardware, Activision listed only unspecified next-generation consoles as being in development.

Fielding a question from a fan on Twitter, the official Infinity Ward account responded, “we'll be releasing #CODGhosts on both platforms #PS3 #PS4”.

The news should come as little surprise, given that previous Call of Duty games have launched simultaneously on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though fan confusion is understandable, with neither Amazon nor GameStop currently listing a PS4 version of the game. As part of its Xbox One announcement held earlier this week, Microsoft revealed that it had once again secured timed exclusivity on downloadable content for Call of Duty: Ghosts.

The latest game in the hit shooter series is being billed as having a more emotional storyline, is being built on a new game engine, and will be written by Traffic and Syriana author Stephen Gaghan. The game is set to release globally on November 5 this year on the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.

Activision surprised me with this announcement of the new call of duty .Previously I had thought that Battlefield was the one to do something innovative and Call of Duty was always same old, same old ,but the new call of duty ghosts actually looks far more interesting than Battlefield 4 .I Will definitely be following this one.

Most gamers are probably still going to get the 360/PS3 versions so they have a community to play with. Unless the games offer cross-platform multiplayer between the old generation and new generation similar to the PS3/Vita crossplay.

So this "new-gen" Call of Duty's graphics will be in line with what other developers produced with Xbox 360/PS3.

Call of Duty 4 was the first CoD i bought. I've played them all including BO2. I must say im CoD burned out now... and it's annoying seeing another CoD every year. You guys know what game i want to play ? The New Rainbow Six :P

"DLC to launch first on Xbox One."

How surprising.

I won't lie, I am a bit surprised by this. Said no one ever. Sorry, I had to do it. I mean, I get one right? Although I can't promise it'll be my last.

I'm excited for the next generation of gaming. Simply stated, Call of Duty is not next generation gaming. CoD Ghosts will run on the same engine they've been using since MW4, only now they'll be able to do more with it while maintaining the 60 FPS that the series is known for. Why do this instead of developing a truly next-gen engine and experience? Because that takes time and money, which means it would interrupt their yearly release schedule, and there is no way they would let that happen with all the money this franchise rakes in every November. 

As far as I'm concerned you're still purchasing a new map pack each year, not a new game, and certainly not anything worth $60. The other publishers and developers will prove this point beyond all shadows of doubt.

This should surprise no one as they said MS was getting the DLC FIRST.

Guys, it is NOT using a new engine. It is using the same engine as before, but it has been upgraded. Still, it is the SAME ENGINE. The creative director did an interview and specifically said "It depends how you define a new engine, in this case, we recognised there was areas where we had significantly upgraded our engine to the point where we classified it as a new engine, developing a new engine would take a long time". That is BS! It's the same engine.

If this COD fiasco about getting dlc first is Xbox One's selling point, then this is absolutely pathetic!  Who gives a flying fuck about getting some trash 1 month earlier? Seriously!

OMG this is totally "shocking"! Who would have thought that Call of Duty would come out on a Sony Platform, as well as a Microsoft Platform? What madness is this? *sarcasm* 

But seriously who would think that Call of Duty wouldn't come out on the PS4? But more importantly, who still plays these games?

no shit, did anyone not know this? Last time I checked call of duty has always been for multiple platforms

Now I can take a sigh of relief knowing average gaming will continue in full next gen.

I would rather wait a bit longer for something rather than be spied on 24 hours a day through their Kinect Big Brother Eye Ball starring into my living room all the time and never being able to trade or sell my used games for credit on new ones though Gamestop.

@OHGFawx Why are you people always complaining "Same engine, same engine..." like little kids? I personally don't care on what engine the game is running.I want interesting, exciting story as it was in MW series(the best story of the FPS for me).And what the hell you are talking about "you're still purchasing a new map pack each year, not a new game"?! There are new missions, new story every year, so it's a new game! Have you ever noticed that?

@icey05 I knew it when I saw the explosion. Same crappy explosions, no actual particle system, sucks for a wanna be next-gen. I also like how in the trailer, in the forest, you had god rays coming through the leaves on the left of the screen...but you could clearly see the sun at the center right of the screen.

@mtait01 It's not. And neither is Madden. Or AC. COD will be the only game available for the PS4. Imagine that.

@edpeterson exactly bops2 was the only one to have real innovation to the series

@wookiegr It's funny how more people complain about the used game thing instead of the Kinect spying thing. I mean even if M$ won't spy on us, it doesn't mean someone can't hack into it and spy on random Xbox One users.

But who knows maybe with things like the patriot act we have become more complacent with technology spying in on us. Also, used games are pretty important too since buying used games is already way too expensive!

@LINUX1997 Bioshock, Halo 4, and Borderlands are examples of interesting, exciting stories. CoD stories are as short as they are forgettable. The 5 hour campaign is for novelty's sake, they are selling you MP, the main reason so many people buy it. I have 11 friends I could name right now that buy CoD every year and don't even bother with the campaign.

Next gen CoD will have fewer low-res textures, and one or two bells and whistles thrown in, otherwise it will look the same as it did on the 360 and PS3. Why bother buying a new console to run an engine thats nearly a decade old?

@Total_mischief @icey05 

Yeah they just keep using the same recycled engine like Bethesda, and  state it's an upgraded version or change the name.  Same engine, heavily modified.  It's also the same as polishing a turd.

They'll still be 2 generations behind everyone, using pre-baked lighting.

@OHGFawx Hearing a person say that they love exciting, interesting stories, then saying that Bioshock (a series that has produced some of the most amazingly detailed, thought-provoking stories ever conceived in gaming) sucks is the only thing I don't understand.

@OHGFawx @LINUX1997 Play on veteran, and I guarantee you, that it will take more than 5 hours, but I must agree that campaigns must be a little longer.Forgettable?!No way!MWs story is a lot better than other MMS(battlefield, medal of honor).Maybe you don't like it, cause you don't understand it or you're not watching cutscenes.Halo is a great too, but it is a Sci-Fi FPS, not modern day.Bioshock sucks and Borderlands is just for little kids in my opinion.And yes, I buy FPS for the campaigns, I give a shit on multiplayer!
