YouTuber Drift0r claims to have “insider information” regarding the next Call of Duty, presumably from developers Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games.
The information allegedly comes from a subscriber who is “a part of the Call of Duty machine,” and is somehow involved in the development of the next entry said to be titled, “Call of Duty: Ghosts.”
According to the source, a previous working title included “Call of Duty: Phantoms,” though it is meant to be a departure from the Modern Warfare series.
In Driftor’s video, he describes Call of Duty: Ghosts as a title that will once again utilize a future setting, as did Black Ops 2, but one that will have soldiers using current-day weaponry as part of a plot element that will dictate the reasons why.
Multiplayer will allegedly utilize dynamic loading screens, showing soldiers repelling from a chopper into the battlefield or into the play space. Multiplayer maps are said to include destructive environments and will feature more interactivity, allowing players to take out enemies in fashions other than shooting.
It is also rumored that player movement will see some significant changes. Soldiers will be able to slide while shooting, peak and lean around corners, and roll side-to-side while in prone.
The Modern Warfare series’ mini-game, Spec Ops, is also said to be replaced entirely.
According to the source, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be announced on or around May 1.
You can check out Drift0r’s video here, who also mentions rumor has it that Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch exclusively on next-generation consoles, meaning the PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox, as well as the PC.
What does it sound like to you guys? Do you think these rumors would make for a pretty cool Call of Duty title?
To clarify, the rumor of “Call of Duty: Ghosts” being a next-gen-only title is from an anonymous source that differs from Drift0r’s original source detailing the bulk of his information. As he states in his video, this particular rumor is simply hearsay and is not from his original source.
