CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS Heading To Current & Next-Gen Consoles This November

There haven’t been leaks, so much as titanic floods crashing into every corner of the Internet – but Activision have finally announced that the tenth entry in the universally Marmited (that’s loved/hated, for those of you who have yet to experience the polarizing delights of Britain’s favourite sandwich spread) Call of Duty series will be the rather succinctly titled Call of Duty: Ghosts. And while the full reveal of gameplay is scheduled for a later date (more on that below), it’s looking rather encouraging. But rather than regurgitating the facts, here’s the official summary of Ghosts:

The franchise that has defined a generation of gaming is set to raise the bar once again with the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, the studio that created the original Call of Duty and the critically-acclaimed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, Call of Duty: Ghosts ushers in the next generation of the franchise, delivering a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast, all powered by a new next-generation Call of Duty engine.

Yep, Ghosts will finally move away from the Modern Warfare arc for a brand new set of characters and plot (which seems to feature stealthy guerrilla warfare types), complete with a brand new engine (considering the last time a brand new engine was introduced was Call of Duty 2, this is a fairly big deal), and a confirmed release on next-gen consoles. The official cover art for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC can be viewed below:

The teaser trailer, which does not reveal any gameplay footage (but does reveal a rather impressive gravelly Hollywood voice-over), can be viewed below:

The full reveal will be coming May 21st at the reveal of the new Xbox, so stay tuned to UTF for some proper gameplay footage then.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is developed by Infinity Ward, and will be released on November 5 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and an unconfirmed date for next-gen consoles.
