The rumors are true. Call of Duty: Ghosts will be the next CoD game from Infinity Ward Studios, as the new announcement/teaser trailer confirms. We will also see the first reveal of CoD: Ghosts this May 21st when Xbox officially reveals their next generation console. It also seems that the November 5th release date rumor holds true as well.
So far Pre Orders are only confirmed for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, however, since the game will be revealed along with the next gen Xbox, and the game is getting a brand new Call of Duty engine as confirmed by Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg who stated earlier:
“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,”
I think we can safely say that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available for the next generation platforms . . .looking better than ever.
Hirshberg also went on to say:
“Infinity Ward is going all-in to create the next generation of Call of Duty worthy of the world’s greatest fans.”
You can also expect the Xbox 360/720 users to continue to receive all bonus content earlier than other platforms as well. President of the interactive entertainment business at Microsoft, Don Mattrick, said:
“we are consistently thrilled with the overwhelming response received from critics and consumers alike to the Call of Duty series, which has firmly established its home on the Xbox 360 with the game’s largest and most engaged community. With Call of Duty: Ghosts, we have no doubt that our longtime partners, Activision and Infinity Ward, will raise the bar higher than ever before for this incredible franchise.”
One thing you shouldn't expect is Sledgehammer Games to be assisting with Call of Duty: Ghosts. Sleghammer Games came into the CoD development mix with Modern Warfare 3, but is currently "heads down" in their "next project" according to tweet to Infinity Ward:
