Call of Duty: Ghosts listed by Tesco with box art

Infinity Ward seemingly developing this year's series entry

The online arm of retail giant Tesco is carrying Xbox 360 and PS3 product listings for the unannounced but previously rumoured Call of Duty: Ghosts.


According to the listings, the game is being developed by Modern Warfare studio Infinity Ward and is set for release on December 30 (this is likely just a placeholder, as Activision always launches Call of Duty in November).

The publisher wouldn't comment on the Call of Duty: Ghosts product listings when contacted this afternoon.

A supposed advert from US retailer Target posted on the Blu-ray forum (pictured below) also appears to suggest that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be available for pre-order in early May ahead of its release on Tuesday, November 5.

According to rumours that emerged last month via the video posted below, Call of Duty: Ghosts branches out from the Modern Warfare series and will be revealed on or around May 1.

The game is said to be set in the future, but a major plot event forces the characters to use modern day weaponry.

The multiplayer loading screens will reportedly be interactive, with the traditional loading countdowns set to be replaced by mini-games which see player entering maps in different ways, such as rappelling in from a chopper.


Apparently there'll also be changes to player movement, with users able to dash and enter a slide while shooting, which may act as an alternative to Black Ops' dolphin dive. Additionally, it's claimed that players will be able to peek around corners and roll side to side while in a prone position.

The Modern Warfare series' Spec Ops mode will also allegedly be replaced with a new game mode, while developers are said to be planning to introduce more destructible environments and interactive environmental elements.

Activision social media manager Dan Amrich said earlier this month that he expects 2013's entry in the Call of Duty series to be revealed no later than E3 in early June.
