Call of Duty: Ghosts Title, Release Date Confirmed

A promotional poster has confirmed that the next title in the Call of Duty franchise is called Call of Duty: Ghosts and that it will be released on November 5, 2013. The poster comes just 24 hours after Activision began teasing the game on its official site and marks our first confirmation of the game's title and release date. (Activision, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

November. I, for one, am utterly shocked.

Well it's nice to see a new name for the first time in years. I'm not sure if it's supposed to follow MW3 or what though, with Ghosts character as the lead or something.

I just want to see the new engine, and if it plays any different. If it's exactly the same, with just nicer graphics, I will not waste my time.

Couldn't agree more. The title seems to suggest more stealth based gameplay, but that may not sit well with an audience conditioned to expect grand set-pieces and spectacles.

Willing to give it the benefit of the doubt though.

apparently a new engine has been confirmed

They put in a new name in order to not make the game look too old.

>"we finally get a different game; a game about covert operations"

>"we finally get a different game; a game about futuristic warfare"
>"we finally get a different game; a game about stealth and whatnot"

This is the excuse Activision finds to make you all buy the same game every year. A new engine means little if the gameplay is the same. The formula is set and they have NO reason to change it since you all keep on buying it.
Enjoy it though (that' what games are for), to each their own.

That much we know, but how fresh will the new engine feel? That's the real question!

If it feels the same as the last 6 CODs or so than a lot of people seens to be done with the series... Not that it will stop selling amazingly, you know, even if it went half of last title it would still be great numbers.

I know everyone will talk shit and hate on the game but I guarantee almost all of you will be there when the midnight release takes place!

I'll be too busy playing either GTA 5 or something on the PS4 if it's out then

It's made by Infinity Ward. Won't get my money

If this is an open world game about how Ghost became the legend that he is then its a day one purchase for me.

How do people judge a game by a trailer that doesn't even show gameplay? -___-

Probably will have a Survival mode like MW3 but new concepts added.
madara0sama  +   943d ago
Or a upgraded infection mode. I've always preferred MW's infection mode to BO's zombie.
rustyspoon80  +   943d ago
After Waw came out with Zombies, I always expected MW2 to have an Alien mode included.
That could be just as good as zombies, with various kinds.

I've bought every COD since no.4, but will skip this years unless they show something new on PS4.

I am so excited right now. I cannot possibly contain my excitement. I haven't been this excited since last November. And the one before that. And the one before that. Never before has the opportunity to play the exact same game year after year.

I did know it was coming!! lmao
JackBNimble  +   944d ago
No you didn't Tvensky! Who could have possibly seen this coming?
venom06  +   944d ago
poor CoD fanboys....remember this IS Infinity Ward and the last "awesome" billion dollar game was pretty much copy and paste crap. You think this is gonna be different just because of a name change???? and the fact that this "new engine" is more than likely nothing more than just another old-a$$ Quake engine update is pretty much false advertising. Think for a second.... how is this "new next gen engine" supposed to work on the 360 or PS3??? it wont...the hardware is what it is... wake up people and dont fall for the hype train.
wiz7191  +   944d ago
Battlefield 4 is a next gen title well the Frostbite 3 is a next gen enegine.. And battlefield 4 is gonna be released on current gen consoles.
artdafoo  +   944d ago
There is almost no chance there'll be an actual NEW engine and i say NEW because im sure theyll call it that, the reality is it will be the MW3 engine with added lighting and other effects here and there. Honestly people they've been saying its a new game every November. If you love the game, no big deal you enjoy its fun whatever. Just stop making excuses for Activision's laziness.
RFornillos4  +   944d ago
not siding with COD/Activision/Infinity Ward (haven't liked COD much since MW), but modern game engines are designed to be scalable. so yes, it's possible to have a new engine and still make it work on older consoles.

also, COD has been rehashing their game engine for the longest time, so having a new engine that still works for current gen is not a far-fetched idea since they've probably began working on it before any of the next-gen consoles have been announced. if you're thinking "why didn't Treyarch use a new engine for BLOPS2?", Treyarch has already been customizing the existing COD engine since they've started working on a COD title, so perhaps they don't think it's wise (financially) to simply create a new engine.
Utalkin2me  +   944d ago

Well they originally started with the quake engine, but it became so modified that it wasn't really the quake engine anymore. The engine from modern warfare was IW 3.0, which was the complete overhaul of the quake engine (for the most part).

ID software could have sued them if they felt that they was using for the most part their engine and calling it a different name.
SegataSanshiro  +   944d ago
LOL at the people disagreeing with this guy. Go right now and get your disc of whatever call of duuty game from 2003 to 2012 and tell me, I beg you for all that is holy, tell me that it doesn't say "contains Id tech 1999-2012 all rights reserved blah blah blah" call of duty is nothing but a quake 3 mod ever since the first one

New Engine confirmed ? Link or its BS, and i mean actual confirmation link, not a link to some article speculating on a rumor.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will use a new engine, retailer product descriptions have stated it, and they don't just pull that stuff from the air. Activision gives them the product description.
josephayal  +   944d ago
I really hope it's a new engine and not just a slightly improved version
WeskerChildReborned  +   944d ago
I'm looking forward to see what it looks like if it does have a new engine but personally, not that excited if it ends up being like the last few games.
weekev15  +   944d ago
Gta, watch dogs, bf4, windwaker HD and possibly new Mario as well as 2 new console releases and whatever e3 throws at us. Activision better seriously up its game or it has no chance of getting my pennies.

LAWSON72  +   944d ago
i will only buy if it a new engine and features. they need to blow my mind cod has gone down hill since cod4, please surprise me i need a good multiplayer game
NarooN  +   943d ago
New engine doesn't mean new gameplay. Why would they change their formula? People keep giving them money for selling overpriced expansion packs, so the gameplay will be the same.

"New" weapons which perform just like the old ones, "new" unbalanced/overpowered killstreaks because you can never have enough of those, etc. Get real. New engine just means slightly better visuals, which means nothing when it comes down to it.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   943d ago
Well said. It's still the same half assed lazy developers. New graphics but same crappy gameplay.

Gamer-40  +   943d ago
I wait this game, i like "old" MW characters, new engine, new gameplay element, cool SP campaign.

Battlefield never interesting for me, boring SP, and dont like graphic style " sterile PC feeling ". I skip BF4, no buy.

We need something new and refreshing please IW with decent net code. The lag compensation ruins it for me. Bigger maps/more players on next gen please otherwise BF4 will slay you.

They will be presenting the game on the next gen xbox event on May 21st. Hopefully it doesn't end up to be the same routine MS has been doing for E3 (start with Call of Duty then announce Xbox, then Kinect, then TV stuff).

It is pretty likely Microsoft is going to do a really big show, instead of a small conference like Sony did. Expect to see a lot of advertisement for the reveal starting now. Microsoft will hype the it much more than Sony did.

It will be very interesting to see what they have in store. Although the most important thing for me are the games that will be announced. So far Sony has three I am interested in: Killzone, inFamous and Knack (plus multiplatform). Microsoft should announce exclusives, because if their biggest game will be call of duty, they are in trouble. They should have more!

It's a new beginning for both companies, so let's see who gets the better games and features (although i prefer games).
