As you already know Call of Duty: Ghosts was officially announced today by Call of Duty publisher, Activision. The press release the company sent out failed to mention a Wii U version of the game, but the Wii U logo features prominently on the teaser site. Online news publication The Examiner contacted Activision to find out about the Wii U version. Here’s the company’s response.
We don’t have any news for the Wii U at this time, as we aren’t dating next generation platforms yet. Stay tuned.
Update: The teaser website that everyone keeps referring to is actually a fake, according to Activision’s community manager.
Activision has launched a new teaser site for the next game in the immensely popular Call of Duty series. The game which is hinted is apparently titled Call of Duty: Ghosts and will be revealed to the general public on May 1st. The teaser message on the official website cryptically says “The ghosts are real.”
Spanish retailer XtraLife has listed the leaked Call of Duty: Ghosts for Wii U. Previous reports suggested that the game was going to skip the Wii U, but it now looks as though this is not the case. Activision will be unveiling the game on May 1st, according to leaked GameStop promotional materials.
A number of retail outlets have received displays that indicate that the next Call of Duty title will be announced by Activision on May 1st. The promotional materials which were sent to IGN suggests that they will be displayed at GameStop stores on May 1st. The date lines up with last year’s Black Ops 2 reveal which took place on May 1st during the NBA Playoffs. A number of leaks suggest that the new game in the series will be titled Ghosts.
The next Call of Duty game will be titled Ghosts according to major UK supermarket, Tesco. The supermarket put up a product listing for the game along with the cover art. The box art for the game states that it’s being developed by Modern Warfare developers, Infinity Ward. You may remember that last month Youtube user Drift0r reported that the Ghosts is the next Call of Duty title. The game is listed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but hopefully there’s a Wii U version in development.

A rumour is circulating the internet which suggests that the next game in the immensely popular Call of Duty series is titled Ghosts. The rumour stems from Youtube user Drift0r who claims that a “very legitimate” source provided him with the news. Ghosts is apparently set in the future, but a plot point will enable characters to use weapons from the past. Players will also be able to dash and slide while shooting, peek around corners and even roll side-to-side while prone. Ghosts will also feature destructive environments like those seen in EA’s Battlefield 3. Drift0r says that an announcement will apparently come in May.
Neversoft, the development studio behind the Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk games, could well be developing the next instalment in the hugely popular Call of Duty franchise. The company website is displaying the Call of Duty logo on their careers page, leaving many to speculate that they are in charge of the next Call of Duty game. It could be another entry in the Modern Warfare or Black Ops series, or something entirely new. Would you like to see the developer handle the next instalment of this franchise?
