Editors note: We don’t normally post rumors when people don’t reveal their source and we’re just supposed to take their word for it. The only reason we’re posting this is because major sites are posting it for some reason (page views), and all of you are sending us tips.. So here’s today’s latest rumor (which we’re not believing until there’s proof)…
According to a YouTuber named Drift0r (with 288,655 subscribers), his “trusted source” told him that the next Call of Duty will be called Call of Duty Ghosts and be revealed May 1st.
Take this with a grain of salt, as nothing about the next Call of Duty game has been officially announced by Activision yet.
The rumor states that the game will be “branching” off the Modern Warfare series, but leading off into its own series. The game was reportedly called “Phantom” but was changed to Ghosts. The single player is reportedly set to take place in the future, but use current generation technology.
In Multiplayer, there will reportedly be dynamic map loading screens. As an example it could be you coming down from a helicopter or jumping through a window to start the game. There is a new prone and crouch mechanic and there will be a “looking around door” feature.
And, according to the rumor this game will be putting a little more focus on destructible environments. But, it appears these environments will be in Single Player and less subtle in MP.
Spec Ops – this is supposedly not returning and being replaced with a new mode.
The report also states that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be launching on next-generation consoles (New Xbox, PS4, and PC) only.
The video states we can expect the reveal on May 1st.
