Call of Duty: Ghosts pre-order available at GameStop, release set for Nov. 5
It's official! Call of Duty: Ghosts will be the next entry in Activision's popular first-person shooter franchise. As expected, based on leaked promotional material, GameStop has made live the product pages for Call of Duty: Ghosts. The listings reveal a November 5th release date for the game, but no other information has been provided.
Furthermore, GameStop is now accepting pre-orders for what is sure to be another hit this year. Pre-ordering at GameStop will earn you an exclusive limited edition two-sided poster -- the same one that was leaked yesterday. GameStop PowerUp Rewards members who pre-order will also unlock the exclusive Call of Duty: Ghosts themed weapon camo for use in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Activision still hasn't confirmed or officially announced the new game, though they did create an official Facebook page for it. The publisher is expected to formally announce it sometime this month. Now that the box art has been revealed, all that remains is the juicy gameplay and story details, which I expect will remain unknown until Microsoft's next Xbox unveiling event on May 21st.
Earlier rumors have led to speculation that the story of Ghosts will branch out of the Modern Warfare series, but move into a "different direction." The campaign is believed to be set in the future, but a major plot point will require present-day weapons to be used -- or so it is believed.
We're still waiting on Activision to provide us with official details.
