Two more important cogs in the machine at The Last Of Us developer Naughty Dog have exited the studio, with two leads making the move to Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward this week.

Call of Duty: Ghosts' developers teased quite the interesting cameo last week for the game's second DLC, Devastation. Their new gameplay trailer now confirms that 80s intergalactic hunter Predator will indeed join the battle.
"It uses the jungle."
Before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 made "Oscar Mike" ("on the move") famous, I confess that I'd never heard the expression before. But that's just one phrase in a rich vocabulary of U.S. military slang.
The furor that kicked up two weeks ago over Call of Duty: Ghosts' native resolution on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One appears to have gotten its sequel. With reviews of the Xbox One version trickling in today, some are saying the Xbox One does not suffer the framerate drops that were reported in the PS4 version.
Three men huddle around a campfire, eager to hear the story of an elite force of highly-feared soldiers. Ghosts, they're called. Two of the men listening—the sons, Logan and Hesh Walker—are skeptical. Surely the tale-spinning father doesn't expect them to believe such an outlandish story?
When word came out last month that upcoming dog simulator Call of Duty: Ghosts runs at a higher resolution on PS4 than it does on Xbox One, the reactions were loud and angry. Was this a launch-day anomaly, or will all multi-platform games perform better on Sony's console?

Infinity Ward this week showcased the pre-order bonus for its upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts, a multiplayer map called "Free Fall" that the developer claims will add a touch of the cinematic single player campaign to the game's deathmatch modes. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

Today's big Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer reveal event didn't reveal everything. They actually skipped some really interesting things, including "martyr dog." Thankfully, Ghosts executive producer Mark Rubin decided to spill more news when he spoke to us.
Multiplayer in Call of Duty: Ghosts will introduce the "Squad," a group of up to ten soldiers with unique loadouts and appearances, with one level of prestige per character. These guys will also join you, as AI teammates—or adversaries—in a new mode called, of course, Squads.
We've heard about its campaign. We've heard about its story. We've heard about dogs and fish. But we haven't heard what Call of Duty: Ghosts has planned for multiplayer.
