Call Of Duty: Ghosts – Rumoured Again – YES Again!

…We were told of this rumour in 2011 - now it's back from the dead…

The Call of Duty Ghost game rumour has been doing the rounds for more time than you might actually care to realise. We were first told of this news waaaaaaaay back in the early days of 2011 when we were informed (reliably) that Sledgehammer Games were working on a title that would bring back ‘Ghost’ from the dead. Our website CMS has changed within that time and we can only link you to proof through 1UP

The game at that time would be based on events surrounding the Ghost squad Task Force 141 inbetween the events of the original Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 from Infinity ward. We were also told that flashback sequences would be present to see the Modern Warfare story from a whole different point of view – led by Ghost – the character from Modern Warfare 2 who sadly died, such a loss… or did he? Careful watching of that moment you will spot that you are led to believe Ghost is covered in petrol, but only one of the two shot victims in the Modern Warfare 2 scene are doused?

It has been factually confirmed, somewhere far and distant, but it’s out there that Sledgehammer cancelled the game project they were working on to later move onto Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward at the instruction of Activision. It is claimed Call of Duty: Ghosts features dynamic loading screens (such as rappelling from a helicopter or breaking a window to enter an area) and has destructive environments in single-player (these may be implemented in multiplayer later) – and additionally detailing that Spec-Ops has been replaced. Now that Modern Warfare 3 is already ancient history, but still greatly loved online – maybe, this ‘Ghost’ game has been reinstated, tweaked and modernised for a release later this year on next-gen platforms.

Or maybe not?

Until Activision make their official announcements usually around May time we can only speculate on what exciting changes lie ahead for the Call of Duty franchise to make it bigger and more dominant in the first-person-shooter genre.

It’s also worth taking into account that the apparent ‘source’ of this leak – a youtube guy who’s details and video we spotted on IGN, could have fabricated this rumour based on the ending of a fan-made trailer that gave the impression it was related to the next Call of Duty reveal – that video stated “and the GHOSTS will rise”.

Seems a little coincidental…

    This rumor could potentially be true. I recall an interview with Ghost’s Voice actor back before MW3 came out where he mentioned that he was being called back to do voice work for a future Call of Duty game. Former Call of Duty Creative Strategist Robert Bowling said in an interview with IGN awhile back that Ghost wasn’t exactly dead and that we’d see what he meant soon.
    I personally hope this rumor is true, I really liked Ghost and hated that they killed him. Also, the rumored gameplay changes sound pretty awesome.
