LOS ANGELES -- Activision is trading "Modern Warfare" for "Ghosts."

The video game publisher announced Wednesday that the next installment in its successful "Call of Duty" franchise will be titled "Call of Duty: Ghosts" and feature a new story and characters.

Activision Blizzard Inc. said "Ghosts" will be released Nov. 5 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and next-generation consoles.

The game is being developed by Infinity Ward, the Encino studio that created the original "Call of Duty" and reignited the franchise with 2007's "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare."

The previous "Call of Duty" game, Treyarch's "Black Ops II," crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide retail sales 15 days after its release last year.

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" hit the $1 billion mark in 16 days after its 2011 debut.
