A photo of a GameStop display sent to IGN (at right) suggests promotional material for the game will be sent to stores on April 29 before it can be displayed on May 1.

An Activision representative declined to comment.

An early May announcement matches up with last year's Call of Duty reveal, which took place on May 1 during the NBA Playoffs on TNT.

Activision has confirmed a new Call of Duty for 2013, but has kept quiet on its title. United Kingdom retailer Tesco this week posted a product listing for Call of Duty: Ghosts, suggesting Infinity Ward is developing this year's game.

Whatever the case, Activision does not believe this year's game will outsell Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This game is on pace to surpass the original Black Ops' 25 million units sold mark to become the best-selling title in franchise history, according to one analyst.
