Call of Duty: Ghosts will feature some sort of cooperative mode, but Infinity Ward is staying tight-lipped on its nature.
As part of a wider leak prior to the title's official announcement in May, it was rumoured that Infinity Ward had dropped the Modern Warfare series' Spec Ops mode in favour of a new co-op game type.
And asked this month whether Spec Ops will be returning in the upcoming Call of Duty game, Infinity Ward studio community coordinator Candice Capen said on Twitter:
@doyneamite @markderidder we'll have a cooperative mode of sort, but we're not announcing it yet and I've no clue when/if we will— Candice Capen (@candyslexia) July 4, 2013
It's worth pointing out that a number of the rumours featured in the aforementioned leak subsequently turned out to be accurate. In addition, Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin has stated that the studio's intent on pushing the series in new directions with Ghosts.
He said when the game was announced: "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."
Earlier this month, publisher Activision announced pre-order bonus Call of Duty Ghosts DLC in the form of a multiplayer map called Free Fall. It will mark the introduction of "dynamic map events" to the series, which see battlegrounds undergo landscape-altering events during matches.
