Call_of_duty_ghosts_box_artActivision and Infinity Ward have officially announced that ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ is in the works and will be released Holiday 2013. This comes a few days after the online retailer, Tesco Direct, leaked the news.

A teaser trailer was released that gives little details but confirms some of the rumors but an offical trailer will be released on May 21. Activision has also launched the official website and an official Facebook page has been set up.

Call of Duty: Ghosts became officially available for pre-order on Wednesday. Gamestop is offering a promotional poster along with Ghosts-themed content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

News about an upcoming Call of Duty-game was first announced by Activision on February 7 during a Q4 conference call. Little information was given at the time except that it would be released sometime in 2013

News and rumors began to buzz when Tesco Direct leaked information about the game when they had it available for pre-order. The ad was taken down but the little details revealed was enough to cause a major buzz online.

Then a day before the official unveiling, IGN.com revealed that it had obtained official promotional material that confirmed that the next game will be titled Call of Duty: Ghost and will be released on November 5, 2013.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be the tenth game in the popular series that has sold over 100 million copies and on average has 40 million active players a month. Back in 2011, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hit the $1 billion mark in 16 days, beating James Cameron’s Avatar by only 1 day.
