Fellow youtuber DriftOr caused a ruckus this past week with leaked information he reportedly received from Pax East from a reliable source about the new Call Of Duty installment. According to DriftOr the new call of duty will be called Call Of Duty: Ghost and that this new installment will be moving away from the Modern Warfare timeline but it will use some similar weapons from present day, like the last Call of Duty’s. Like Black Ops 2 Ghost will be set in the future but many plot twist and turns will cause characters to use weapons from the past.
Ghost will also be the platform that Infinity Ward will use to implement some new gameplay dynamics for the series. In Ghost players will be allowed to dash and slide while shooting which comes from Ghost Recon Future Soldier, you can peek around corners and also roll side-to-side while prone. Ghost will also allegedly feature some of the most dynamic loading screens that we have seen for the series from a character repelling from a helicopter to a player breaking a window to enter another area just to name a few. One of the biggest pieces of info dropped by DriftOr was that the new Call of Duty will finally after so many years implement destructible environments in the single player but the question is will they implement these new features into the multiplayer which is beloved by millions.
Ghosts will reportedly only be released on the next-generation consoles and also PC, which corresponds with earlier rumors of infinity ward creating a all new Call Of Duty for next-gen consoles. According to Drift0r, Ghosts is slatted early May for its announcement. We will update this story as more information comes available.
