I have exaclty the same problem as yours but in my case not even the single player is working.
Disabled Kasperghost Antivirus, Steam App started as Administrator, installed DX11, Visual C++ 2012 and Framework 4.0 included with game, installed the latest nvidia driver 331.65. I have also tried to unistall and reinstall all (Steam, and Call of Duty Ghost) no changes.
I have also tried to launch the game from the .exe and I receive the following error:
iw6sp64_ship.exe - Application Error
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

Hey man, I have the exact same problem. My single player won't even start and I am getting the same error message when I try starting the game via the exe file. I tried verifying the game files & caches, re-installing the game through the discs, downloading the game from the steam servers, updating and re-installing the direct-x, updating the graphics driver, re-installing the network frame 4.0, re-installing the C++ re-distributable; But nothing happened!!
My PC specs:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 660 ti
So I think my setup is more than capable of running COD Ghosts, I just can't figure out what the problem is... Someone please help!!!
