In response to a fan asking if there's to be any Spec Ops in Call of Duty: Ghosts, an Infinity Ward dev responds that there'll be a "cooperative mode of sort," but the studio isn't announcing anything about it yet.
Community coordinator Candice Capen doesn't know "when/if" this new co-op will be revealed. This confirms rumours Modern Warfare's Spec Ops has been dropped.
Executive producer Mark Rubin has stressed that Infinity Ward wants to push the series in more of a new direction with Ghosts, hoping to stave off that stale sequel taste.
"Everyone was expecting us to make Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the safe thing to do. But we're not resting on our laurels. We saw the console transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for Call of Duty. So we're building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players. We can't wait to share them with our community," said Rubin during the announcement of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Call of Duty multiplayer is also changing as they introduce 'dynamic map events' that will alter the level environments forcing players to adapt. It's Call of Duty's way on getting some of that destructibility from DICE's Battlefield.
Call of Duty: Ghosts releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 5th. Xbox One and PS4 at launch.
