"Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" accidentally listed online
The Call of Duty franchise consists of a long series of video games which focus on war-like situations and environments. Each of the main entries has been published by Activision, and for the most part, the annual releases are alternatively developed by Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Gameplay is largely presented via first-person shooter combat, and each game typically features a military solo campaign in addition to heavily expansive online multiplayer game modes.
According to some store pages of the next title, which were accidentally shown on Amazon France for a short while, it looks like the next annual release will be named Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Although this doesn't confirm any new additions to the game, this implies that the upcoming title will also be taking place during the Cold War era. In addition, it means that the game will likely be developed by Treyarch, who was previously responsible for Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War, and of course, Call of Duty: Blacks Ops. What do all three of these games have in common? They all feature an incredibly fun arcade-like zombie mode, something which is absent from all of the separate Infinity Ward entries.
There is some further evidence that supports this name. GameBlog, a French media site, was one of the few sources to put up pictures of the Amazon page. This led to a dispute between the site and Activision France. Upon the site's refusal to remove the pictures, Activision blacklisted the site and encouraged other media networks to remove their own stories.
Keep in mind however that this doesn't necessarily guarantee that the final product will be a story sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops. It is possible that the name shown was just a tentative title. Since the Call of Duty franchise has been extremely profitable so far though, I would be surprised if there wasn't a new title currently being worked on.
It states in the article, "who was previously responsible for Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty: World at War, and of course, Call of Duty: Blacks Ops. What do all three of these games have in common? They all feature an incredibly fun arcade-like zombie mode."
You got me! I just flick through it.
You didn't read the above news story, did you...
The worst thing about all of this is that Activision "punished" GameBlog for reporting on the story. When they failed to take the story down, they also disinvited them from that Transformers: Fall of Cybertron event they were having. No one is reporting on this. I think that's a terrible PR move, Activision.
That's a good find there Ferret, but I still doubt it will be called that.
Who said it did?
I wouldnt count on it... These sites have a habit of making up names if they know theres gonna be a sequel, but it hasnt been announced yet. Just as a placeholder.
I hope to god its not another black ops though. The single player was just horrible.
well is another call of madden, fuck i dont care anymore
thye all pretty much the same, and the whole series is just so generic. bleh
Another Call of Duty game. *yawn*
I don't remember COD3 having any sort of zombie mode.
While it doesn't surprise me that it is being called Black Ops 2, it also doesn't surprise me that the game was leaked. We have been in a leakage age recently... and I am getting tired of it.
Yeah, because since they sell boat loads of copies, they are going to think it's not going to be profitable. Each release keeps selling more than the last, so it won't be dying anytime soon.
Kinda knew it would be a BO sequel. Forget where I heard though...
i love what treyarch does with thier cod games...they are far more creative and loyal to their fans than infinity ward.
maybe this time it will actually have some black ops, seriously CoD 4 had more stealth missions
This "accident" listing actually lead me to believe the fact that SA really had a new CoD reveal like they said on twitter/Facebook (referring to the new CoTW). So I got trolled while getting trolled? Either way, I'm not surprised. It's CoD, there's gonna be a new one. We just don't know for sure if it's actually gonna be BO2.
o for god sake dont they get it just die call of duty you can cling on to the lege all you want but one day one amazing day you will fall and fail epicly
He he, "accidents" happen all the time? Don't they?
I really enjoyed Black Ops but we'll see.
