Mark Rubin has confirmed that the main characters name in Call of Duty: Ghosts are ‘Hesh’ and ‘Logan’. These two characters are brothers, who start off fighting alone before teaming up with the rest of the Ghosts squad.
The prologue of the game is watching the event that destroys America occur. The two characters are teenagers when the event takes place. These two brothers have grown up in the new world after the major event of the Odin rod strikes. They’ve been effected, and changed by what happened throughout their life time.
Rubin also said that Steven Gaghan, the writer for Ghosts, wanted to be sure that the character you play as doesn’t talk; it keeps a mystery as to who he is throughout the campaign.
