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?

I find it funny that Gamespot never ever lists PS3 or PS4 first when they announce what platforms the games are released on.  For example...this year on the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.  And another: launching in 2014 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. And yet another: long-running racing series will launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 19.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are in development, but are not yet dated.

Lets put it in alpahbetical order shall we .. PC, PS, Wii, and then Xbox ;) we know barely anything comes out for the Wii but hey have to keep it legit right?!!!

Nothing nice to say about any of this really. While I'd consider this more on PS4 in light of MS's arrogant policies (still confused by their choices) There's the fact it's another marginal upgrade with huge promises that will likely end unfulfilled.

The last IW made CoD I liked was 4. I think I’ve given them enough chances. I'm sure it'll be great for those that want this.

No shit, I'm sure they would make this for the PS2 if they could make a little more money.
