Call of Duty: Ghosts outed by online retailer.

Activision has rolled out a new Call of Duty title every year since 2006, so it isn’t exactly surprising to learn that a new instalment is in the works. However, it seems that the title and cover art for the latest iteration have leaked just a wee bit sooner than the publisher would have preferred.
Overnight, a game dubbed Call of Duty: Ghosts popped up (ever so briefly) on the website of UK retailer Tesco. A similar listing appeared on Target’s US website.
At least one important detail can be gleaned from the leaked material: the game is in production at Infinity Ward rather than Treyarch. Given the title, you have to wonder if the unidentified cover model could be Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley of Modern Warfare 2 fame. It’s probably too early to say for certain.
While the Tesco listing didn’t make reference to a PC version, this isn’t necessarily cause for concern. Every core entry in the series has made an appearance on the platform.
If the leak is accurate, Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch in the first week of November.
