Development on a next-generation Call of Duty is purportedly underway, according to community commentator Drift0r, who claims to have a subscriber whom is “part of the Call of Duty machine” in a video on YouTube.
Titled Call of Duty: Ghosts, the game is said to be a branch of the Modern Warfare series. Not unlike Black Ops 2, the title will be set in the future, although an event forces its protagonists to use current-day weaponry.
Ghosts, which is prepped for a May 1 reveal according to the video, will not be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but instead on PC, PlayStation 4, and the next Xbox.
Among various gameplay details for both campaign and multiplayer, Call of Duty: Ghosts—it’s claimed—will feature dynamic loading screens—such as allowing players to rappel into a map—new prone mechanics, such as rolling, corner-peeking, which is already present in the PC version’s more recent entries, and will introduce the ability to “dash into sliding while shooting.”
Infinity Ward is also said to be prototyping destructible environments, although are said to be struggling to successfully integrate it with the game’s multiplayer component. Spec Ops, a series of co-operative missions in the Modern Warfare series, is also set to be replaced with something new.
“The next CoD game will be called ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts‘ and not Modern Warfare 4 or MW4,” wrote Drift0r in the video below. “This new title as well as single player and multiplayer details were leaked to me from a very legitimate source.”
“Typically I would not post videos like this but I completely trust this source. This video contains info about the story, and some multiplayer inclusions.”
