The age of Call of Duty character Simon “Ghost” Riley is a topic of much speculation among fans, as very little is known about his backstory.

Despite his elusive nature, Ghost has become one of the most beloved characters in the franchise since his debut in MW2 (2009).

Now, Simon Riley is one of the main characters in the reboot of the game Modern Warfare 2 (2022), and while his age is still very much a mystery, there is a plausible way to theorize the age range of Ghost.

What Age Is Ghost in Modern Warfare 2?

The game developers have not officially stated Ghost’s age, as the character never explicitly mentions it. However, fans have theorized that Ghost is in his mid to late 20s.

This is due to Ghost having the rank of Lieutenant in MW2. Typical army soldiers with this rank are usually around this age.

Based on this information and the MW2 timeline, he was likely born between 1993 -1997.

Ghost has always been a mysterious figure in Call of Duty. It should come as no surprise that we know little about him.

However, this has not stopped fans of Call of Duty wanting to know more about their favorite in-game characters.

These gamers have been eager to learn more about the identity and appearance of Simon Riley, but he has remained enigmatic so far.

Despite the curiosity, only fleeting glimpses of the man behind the mask have been revealed. Perhaps we will learn more about this Task Force 141 soldier in the future.
