Call Of Duty: Ghosts reveal in May?
It's rumour time again folks, this time for Infinity Ward's next Call of Duty, Ghosts...
With an awful lot of rumours about upcoming games being more truth than fiction lately, it's good to take note every one in a while, and this latest rumour is a big one, as it involves Call of Duty. YouTuber, Drift0r, has posted some supposedly leaked information about the next Call of Duty title, which he claims comes from a very trustworthy source.
According to this information, the next Call of Duty will be revealed in May, and will be titled Call of Duty: Ghosts, dropping IW's Modern Warfare moniker, and it's going to take place in the future, much like Black Ops II. Whether the name is in relation to Modern Warfare's character, Ghost isn't known.
Despite the future setting, however, due to some form of major plot event, weapons used will be those from present day, rather than futuristic models. It's not clear why this is, but it's going to be part of the story.
Multiplayer will get some improvements, including new moves such as the ability to roll side to side when prone, and lean around corners, and you'll be able to interact during map loading, performing such actions as breaching windows after repelling from a chopper, or sneaking into the mission area.
In a bid to emulate competitor, Battlefield, the dev team are also looking to introduce more destructible environments, most likely in single player, and multiplayer will incorporate traps and other interactive elements.
Also, the popular Spec Ops mode is, apparently, going to be reworked into something new, but no information about this was leaked.
Lastly, and if true, is perhaps the most surprising news that it's been said that the game is only slated for next gen platforms, including the next Xbox, PlayStation 4 and PC. This is surprising as Call of Duty is a guaranteed seller, and ruling out current gen platforms will mean Activision is ditching a huge potential market, especially as the new consoles will only arrive this year.
To be honest, I can't really see Activision cutting out such a profitable avenue, and there's a good chance that the game will release on current platforms too. Of course, at this point, all of the above is just rumour, but with the Modern Warfare story being pretty much wound up in MW3, it would make much more sense for IW to do something different.
