Call of Duty: Ghosts 'powered by next-generation engine'

UK retailer Tesco lets slip on more CoD details

UK superstore chain Tesco has once again seemingly prematurely leaked information on the next Call of Duty game.


The game, expected to be titled 'Call of Duty: Ghosts', thanks in part to an earlier Tesco leak, will be "powerd by a new next-generation Call of Duty engine", according to a new listing which cropped up this weekend (pictured right, via AllGamesBeta).

The now-removed product description reads:

"The franchise that has defined a generation of gaming is set to raise the bar once again with the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, the studio that created the original Call of Duty and the seminal Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, Call of Duty: Ghosts ushers in the next generation of the franchise, delivering a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast, all powered by a new next-generation Call of Duty engine."

Activision is yet to confirm platforms for the new game, but the series' typical annual November releases would align this year's game with the launch on Sony and Microsoft's next generation consoles, both of which are expected to go on sale before Christmas.

Earlier last week Tesco posted listings for Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the unannounced game, complete with box art which appeared to be genuine.

Additionally, a recently leaked photo of an alleged GameStop 'display blueprint' suggests that the retailer will be receiving new promotional materials related to this year's CoD for display on May 1 - hinting at a public reveal on that date.
