The new ‘Call of Duty’ is coming to current and next-gen consoles

(From Kotaku) Activision’s annual blockbuster military shooter returns in November with Call of Duty: Ghosts, and in addition to this debut teaser trailer, the game is getting an “exclusive first look” at Microsoft’s event for the next-generation Xbox on May 21.

In a news release, Call of Duty: Ghosts was announced for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and “will also be available for next generation platforms,” which would include the PS4. No mention was made of a Wii U version.

The game is back in the hands of the series’ creator, Infinity Ward. “Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do,” Mark Rubin, the studio’s executive producer, said in a statement. “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.”

Don Mattrick, president of Microsoft’s Xbox division, joined the statement released by Activision, saying that Call of Duty “has firmly established its home on the Xbox 360 with the game’s largest and most engaged community.”

If Call of Duty is going on stage with Microsoft on May 21, that probably means Respawn Entertainment’s shooter—rumored to be a next Xbox exclusive—won’t be revealed at the same event, as that would make for a palpably awkward appearance. Respawn was started by the Infinity Ward founders Vince Zampella and Jason West in 2010, after an acrimonious departure from Activision that culminated in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit settled a year ago this month.

Still, having close ties to both Call of Duty and a rival is a plus for Microsoft, said to be behind on producing its own content for the new console.
