Call of Duty: Ghosts Release Date Confirmed

Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to release Nov. 5 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, Activision confirmed. A version of the game will also be available on next-generation consoles but no release date has been announced.

Developed by Infinity Ward, makers of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy, Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature a brand new game engine for the first time in the franchise’s history since 2005. The annually updated series has essentially used the same core engine since Call of Duty 2.

In addition to the next iteration of the game engine, Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature an all new cast of characters, storyline and setting.

[adsense250itp]A teaser trailer for the game was released alongside the announcement. The trailer reveals no details about the game and only confirms its existence in video form. The trailer can be viewed below.

Activision announced more of the game will be shown during Microsoft’s reveal of the next Xbox on May 21. The event is being streamed live via Xbox.com, Xbox Live and Spike TV.

Previous games in the Call of Duty franchise have featured timed-exclusive bonus content for players using Xbox 360. Showcasing the game during the event likely means more of the same will be on the way for the next Xbox console.

Wii U version of the game was not announced despite listings on retail websites suggesting otherwise. It appears Call of Duty: Ghosts will be ditching the Nintendo console. It is unlikely Activision would make a separate announcement for the same game on a different console at a later date.

Retail listings and promotional material for Call of Duty: Ghosts previously leaked onto the Internet outed the game. However, this is the first time publisher Activision has acknowledged its existence.

Pre-orders for Call of Duty: Ghosts are being taken at major retail outlets now.
