Activision's latest Call of Duty instalment won't hit Microsoft's next-generation console at the same time as its other platforms...
Activision Games have today announced a new release date for the Xbox One version of their upcoming first-person shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts. A spiritual successor to their Modern Warfare trilogy, Infinity Ward's fourth addition to the annual video game franchise will mark the series' tenth full outing and features the implementation of an intelligent AI dog companion in both its campaign and its online component.
To be frank, there's honestly nothing to worry about in this particular setback. The Xbox One doesn't retail in stores worldwide until November 22nd, nor the PlayStation 4 until November 29th, and thus to have the chance to purchase either version of Ghosts before the hardware ships is somewhat bizarre in itself. Whether this latest COD chapter will turn out to be a worthwhile investment is the more intriguing question at hand right now, seeing as Battlefield 4 has been met with relatively high critical acclaim already, averaging 86% on Metacritic.
Call of Duty: Ghosts retails for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo WiiU and PC on November 5th, and the Xbox One version is now set to ship on November 15th.
