Call of Duty: Ghost is real, and guess what? The big reveal is coming at the same time as the May 21 Xbox 720 Reveal, which means Microsoft's new console could be up for some exclusive Call of Duty: Ghost content when it launches later in the year.
According to a press release from Activision, the new game will bring forth an all new engine from developer Infinity Ward. This is good news because since 2005, every Call of Duty game was based on that same engine with only minor modifications. If history repeats itself, one should expect this new engine to carry on right through till the end of the next generation. If it worked this generation, it could definitely work in the next.
"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."
"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," said 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."
We also understand that Call of Duty: Ghost will take place in the future and will have a level of destructible environments, according to nowgamer. This little piece of information is just a rumor, but it could turn out to be legit, since gamers have been crying for destruction in Call of Duty games since Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
