With Call of Duty: Ghosts expected to be formally unveiled as the next instalment to the iconic gaming franchise in the coming days, Activision has updated the official COD website with a teaser image.

Believed to be set to make its formal debut during the NBA basketball playoffs in the US, Call of Duty: Ghosts is widely expected to be unveiled in video form, with a televised advert airing during the primetime slot showcasing a selection of in-game content and generating much buzz around the release.
Last week first indications of a potential Call of Duty: Ghosts release came to light with supermarket chain Tesco prematurely letting slip Activision’s plans and listing the final Call of Duty: Ghosts cover art online.
Hinting that the eagerly awaited COD: Modern Warfare 3 and COD: Black Ops 2 follow-on will be made available for the upcoming PS4 and Xbox 720 platforms, Tesco has suggested the Infinity Ward developed title will be “powered by a new next-generation engine.”
The retailer’s product listing for the game reads: "The franchise that has defined a generation of gaming is set to raise the bar once again with the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, the studio that created the original Call of Duty and the seminal Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, Call of Duty: Ghosts ushers in the next generation of the franchise, delivering a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast, all powered by a new next-generation Call of Duty engine."
