[News coming, from yo favorite, its 'cha boy: Andrew Goldfarb At IGN.] IGN : Next Call of Duty Reportedly Called ‘Ghosts’
News from some, 'very legitimate source.'
According to Drift0r, Ghosts is straying away from the Modern Warfare brand but will similarly use present-day weaponry. The game is set in the future but a plot point will force characters to use weapons from the past. Ghosts will change player movement, allowing them to dash and slide while shooting, peek around corners and roll side-to-side while prone. - IGN
I'm always amused, how unpredictable these game developers can be, at the last minute/backs against the wall. Just, headfirst into Next-Gen-Only initiative. [Well now, maybe not..] Very interesting. I might actually buy this one, this time. ~ Maybe its worth it. Maybe, it'll be fun again, the first time since MW1. :Surprised :D:
Update 1: I've been wanting to update this. I've just been lazy. But I saw this article on Game Informer on Wednesday, that seems pretty legit. And!, it didn't get taken down. So.. It seems that a promotional game cover has been out by UK retailer, Tesco. They put the game cover up, and eventually took the page down.
And, it took me a while to figure this out. One, it looks like this guy is doing a Rihanna hat-flick to the right. But, I notice that he's not actually smiling, so its not actually ironic. And I eventually noticed the Ghost-face-beanie there. It looks like a white hand, sort of like if it was blood. It almost looks like MW's Ghost, just a little more.. Simple. And this simplistic vibe might be in-line with the YouTube video up there.
But anyway, I don't think its the final game-cover. If you remember, Arkham City had like 3 different leaked game-covers coming up to release. And CoD: Ghosts is supposed to get announced, probably with a super-short teaser: during the NBA Finals game, May 1st. I might watch, I dunno. But I'll probably just wait to watch it online.
Update 2: Well! Here's what CallOfDuty.com comes up with.
You're supposed to retweet this or some shit, and it adds your Twitter avatar to that piece. And it like grayscales everything enough so that it makes a Ghost-Face. Killah!. Or like a Ghost-Soldier-Unit from the new game, that references Ghost from MW2. GameSpot with the article today.
Activision Community Manager:
"Something’s up at callofduty.com," he wrote. "You might wanna check it out."
Thanks, Dan! I guess Tina Palacios doesn't do the IW Community-Manager job, much!. [I looked and it does indeed say Senior CM. Hm.] @Teanah Huh. Anyway, it won't be very hard to wait until Wednesday for the reveal, during the NBA Finals game. I should look who's playing, huh? Spurs is next week, apparently. Shit if I know! I don't. I'll look..
