A first for a Call of Duty game in the franchise since COD4: Modern Warfare 1, Call of Duty: Ghosts’ rating in the UK has dropped from PEGI 18 to now become PEGI 16. The official Call of Duty UK site for Ghosts has added a logo at the bottom of the site of  PEGI 16, and most retailers in the UK have changed the box arts for Ghosts to show the PEGI 16 logo.

Here’s the box art for the Xbox One from Amazon UK; GAME UK also changed the rating to PEGI 16. 

This news of the PEGI 16 rating follows Activision’s announcement that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be playable in the 16+ area at EuroGamer EXPO, which was a shock to all.
