Infinity Ward could be working on CoD campaign focused on Ghost
Ralph Valve, Call of Duty leaker, says that Infinity Ward is developing a campaign focused on Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley.
Ghost is one of the most representative characters of Call of Duty. The campaign of the current Modern Warfare 2, to a large extent, has focused on Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley in many of his missions, since Infinity Ward knows that this masked elite soldier, a member of Task Force 141, has a pull impressive within the fans of the franchise. Ralphs Valve, a leaker specialized in Activision’s first person shooter, has declared for whatifgaming that a campaign focused exclusively on this character is currently under development, so Soap, Captain Price or Gaz would be left aside.
The Ghost campaign could be part of the 2023 Call of Duty Premium and would be an expansion of MW2
Apparently, the leaker in question was able to chat with Samuel Roukin, the voice actor who gives life to Ghost, and the possibility was dropped that in a while we will see the character leading his own adventure, although nothing was confirmed. Said adventure, in principle, would work as a prequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and would explain how Ghost got that assassin mask that looks more like a mercenary than a soldier . It is not the first time that the existence of this project has been discussed, since Brian Bloom, screenwriter for Infinity Ward, already commented on it for IGN.
There’s something about that character that’s iconic, but the mask and some of those more superficial elements, as we’ve tried to flesh out here in our current release, where did they come from? Bloom posed. And exploring that would be something that I think the audience would love, and we’d love to do. It is possible that this new Ghost campaign was part of that Call of Duty Premium content next 2023, which in turn would respond to the campaign DLC that would be underway for Modern Warfare 2. Although there is no official announcement, everything indicates that we will end up seeing, not long after, a small story focused on the origins of Ghost and how the character came to deploy alone in the first mission of the recently released game for PS4, PS5, Xbox One , Xbox Series X / S and PC.
