But the rumors were quickly squashed in a forum thread on ResetEra by Jason Schreier, a Kotaku writer who said, “ain’t Ghosts 2!”
Given Schreier’s track record, it’s a pretty safe bet that he knows what he’s talking about. We’ve reached out to Activation to seek a statement on the matter, and will update the post if and when we get a reply.
Jason Schreier is a dependable source and we’re pretty sure he knows more than he is willing to reveal at the moment and that this might be a completely new edition to the Call of Duty franchise. Moreover Activation has not yet released a statement on this particular matter and we’re waiting for further clarifications from them.
Call of Duty Ghosts was released in 2013, and is Infinity Ward’s first departure from the Modern Warfare branding after MW3. The studio’s last Call of Duty game was Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which was released in November 2016.
The release of these new images has certainly brought Call of Duty fans together in hopes of a sequel to Ghosts but it remains to be seen what and when the studio is prepared to release, we’ll keep a keen eye on this and update as soon as we know more.
