Next Call of Duty Game is "Ghosts," an Infinity Ward Production

The drama that ensued between game developer Infinity Ward and its holding company/publisher Activision, over the past couple of years, apparently, isn't going to affect the developer taking turns with Treyarch to dish out a new Call of Duty title each year. A sloppy job by leading retailers Tesco Direct and Target leaked some juicy tidbits about the next addition to the franchise, including, but not limited to the official box-art.

Named Call of Duty: Ghosts, the game is the first Infinity Ward production after the Modern Warfare trilogy, which had a successful run between 2007 and 2011. The box-art itself reveals little more than an operative taking a peek through a blindfold. It's got elements from Battlefield 3 and Homefront box-arts. The game will be available at least for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, although it's unlikely that Activision will forget to milk its third cash-cow, the PC.

It didn't end with the box-art. The retailers even leaked the game's expected US launch-date, which is 5th November, 2013. The title Call of Duty: Ghosts, to us, implies a story-line covering secret operatives fighting secret-wars that the world is largely oblivious to.
