Activision is set to release the latest in its highly successful series of games in its Call of Duty video game franchise.  The company has announced that it will release a brand new game this fall titled, Call of Duty: Ghosts on November 5th, just in time for the annual holiday shopping season.  Call of Duty: Ghosts is being touted as being a benchmark for the next generation of video games. 

Call of Duty: Ghosts was developed by Activision Blizzard and Infinity Ward, the studio responsible for the original Call of Duty and the even more popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series.  This latest installment in the COD franchise is set in a whole new world.  It offers to players all new characters, and new gaming experience.  Expectations are very high for this brand new, upcoming release.  “Infinity Ward set the gold standard for first-person action for a generation, and they’re going to do it again with Call of Duty: Ghosts,” said Eric Hirschberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc.  “Ghosts delivers an all-new story, all-new characters, an all-new Call of Duty world, all powered by a next generation Call of Duty engine, which is a leap forward for the franchise. Infinity Ward is going all-in to create the next generation of Call of Duty worthy of the world’s greatest fans.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts isn’t going to be just any other game.  And as Infinity Ward Executive Producer Mark Ward said of the game, it’s going to be just that; a whole new gaming experience for long-time fans of the COD series.  “Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we’re not resting on our laurels,” Ward said.  “We saw the console transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for Call of Duty. So we’re building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players. We can’t wait to share them with our community.” 

While the game’s official release is still roughly seven months out, fans can still pre-order it beginning now.  It can be pre-ordered at retail outlets around the world.  It will be released on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC on the same day.  Fans can get an early look at the upcoming release online on Tuesday, May 21st at 1pm EST on Xbox LIVE, Xbox.com, or on Spike TV.  Fans can keep up with all the latest news on this upcoming release online at http://www.callofduty/com/ghosts, http://www.facebook.com/CODGhosts, and on Twitter at @InfinityWard.  Call of Duty: Ghosts is not yet rated.
