'Call of Duty: Ghosts' Shows Up On U.K. Retailer Site

Looks like the YouTube video detailing what would be in the next Call of Duty is at least right on one count.

Tesco, a British retailer, briefly had a listing for Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts, presumably the next version of the mega popular shooter. The listing, since pulled, featured box art of soldier in camoflage. We know, big suprise.

The weird thing about the listing is that it said the game would come out on Dec. 31. Call of Duty usually comes out in November. Perhaps the listing is just a placeholder. The box also lists Infinity Ward as the developer. Infinity Ward and Treyarch traditionally trade off development duties every year and it is Infinity Ward's turn since Treyarch developed Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

In case you forgot, here's what the Youtube video said would be in the next game:

- the next game will not be titled "Modern Warfare 4," but Call of Duty: Ghosts.
- it stems from the "Modern Warfare" series, but branches out into a new direction, featuring a campaign set in the future.
- a major event in the future causes troops to have to use weapons currently available, instead of something more futuristic.
- multiplayer loading screens will be dynamic, like a "mini-game" which bring you into the multiplayer map.
- player movement is changed around: ex. players can "dash into sliding while shooting."
- prone and crouch will be changed a bit as well, and supposedly, peeking around corners is back for the console versions.
- Spec-Ops mode is no more, and will be replaced by something "new" along with different mini-games.
- a more destructive environment is being considered, but developers are finding it "problematic" in multiplayer.
- the game will only launch on PC and next-generation consoles.
