Welcome Call of Duty: Ghosts! The first trailer has been out, and it's freaking awesome. After months of leaks and speculation, the title has been announced for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is said to be available on PS4 and Microsoft's soon to be announced next-gen Xbox 360.
Officially, gamers can look forward to buy the retail version starting November 5, 2013. The Call of Duty: Ghosts comes with a brand new story, settings, and totally new characters. This very title has been made under the supervision of Infinity Ward, the same studio who is known for acclaimed - Call of Duty, and the Call of Duty: Modern Welfare. The next-generation franchise is set to blow your pants, when it gets unleashed during the unveiling of sequel to Xbox 360 on May 21st.
"Infinity Ward set the gold standard for first-person action for a generation, and they're going to do it again with Call of Duty: Ghosts," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. "Ghosts delivers an all-new story, all-new characters, an all-new Call of Duty world, all powered by a next generation Call of Duty engine, which is a leap forward for the franchise. Infinity Ward is going all-in to create the next generation of Call of Duty worthy of the world's greatest fans.", as quoted from the official press release released by Activision.
"Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we're not resting on our laurels," as per Mark Rubin, executive producer of developer Infinity Ward.
"We saw the console transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for Call of Duty. So we're building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players. We can't wait to share them with our community."
The Santa Monica, California based Activision, did not show any sympathy towards PS Vita, Sony's most ambitious handheld console. Neither was Nintendo's 3DS being mentioned in the official press release. Last year, Activision has come up Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified on the PS Vita. But it was equally panned by critics as well by gamers, due to its half basked nature. It was earlier speculated that Ghosts will indeed arrive on the PS Vita. Looks like, PS Vita has lost yet another opportunity to get major AAA title. Stay tuned to GizBot.
