Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Listed By Retailer For November
Written By
View author's profile

Act shocked. French retailer Fnac has gone and listed a release date for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, claiming that the sequel to Treyarch's last crack at the Call of Duty franchise will be coming in November. This is hardly a surprise, as CoD games normally tend to release around this time.

What's interesting is that the case for Black Ops 2 seems to be mounting, suggesting that Treyarch might have its own Modern Warfare-style IP that can be mined for numbered sequels. Will we soon be alternating between Modern Warfare and Black Ops sequels every other year? Maybe...

Naturally, the promotional ad on Fnac has long since been removed, but not before Gamepur snapped the listing (pictured below). So, could we be seeing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in November 2012? Perhaps, but as ever, nothing's confirmed yet, so take this with the usual requisite pinch of salt.

I only dislike CoD because there's little difference between the sequels. If they had made a new CoD that played different from the rest and was actually original, then I wouldn't mind dishing out $60 for it.

Step One: Complain incessantly about a new Call of Duty title ever year.
Step Two: Swear up and down you won't give money to these "greedy" companies.
Step Three: Buy at midnight.
Step Four: Resume complaining while playing everyday.

I don't dislike the CoD series but being a fan of gaming I really just think its time they stepped up their technology a little bit. Upgrade the graphics engine and throw just a little more weight into the single player campaigns. I miss playing the old CoD's where you couldn't rip through the singleplayer in one sit through. The series as a whole has just gotten stale. It is however the safest $60 you can spend because you know damn well what you're going to get. Its the same everytime...

With IW on Treyarch's coattails in developing this I am truly not interested. I was, until the announcement that IW was in kahoots on the next Treyarch game.

I didn't mind Black Ops for the most part. There was some fun to be had. IW will suck all that fun out and make it another soulless Michael Bay tribute.

@12 - These are all just iterations of existing multiplayer modes in other CoD's or other games. Especially Spec Ops Survival. Thats basically a FPS version of Horde 2.0...

Don't care, with Treyarch's consistantly repetitive attitude at extremely-overpriced DLC for what is affectively new maps with nothing new or interesting, they can shove Black Ops 2 up their arse.

@13 Perfectly summed up for the haters lol

I'm quite glad for this, hopefully the MP is similar to Blops, i severely dislike the MP in MW2/3 now, it seems if your not running around with a sniper rifle quickscoping then thats it, where as blops, yes there were a few trying it but with everything they did to stop quickscoping it made it alot harder and so almost no one tries it, in the MW series pretty much anyone can and i do like my AR's.

As for the SP, was one of the more interesting storylines of an FPS, certainly didn't see the ending coming although i knew it would be a twist.

Why are they trying to hide that this games being made? If its wrong information, then fair enough, but something would of been said if that was the case. So that makes it all the more likely that it is Black Ops2 and not another title.
I still don't see why that other forum had its privilages removed, because a pic was posted on there site that someone else took, it was total bull shit, like they are honestly trying to hype people up by rumors and hiding facts...
I have no intention to even humor the game unless they actualy make some kind of effort to make the game something new, either way, Resident Evil6 at around the same times, thats enough for me, but even better, Halo4, something with a very substantial story, and massive back story.
Lets see what happens, see the party popper go bang on the empty room when they announce the next CoD.

why does everyone hate on CoD sequels? You can only change FPS gameplay so much... Their engine is top notch, runs at an amazing 60frames per second, and is honed to perfection.. Granted story could be different.. but damn... Military stories, with special forces.. will always be similar... enough with the CoD hate.. please... if you don't like it don't buy it, don't comment on boards for it.. and leave it be...

Watch the movie, Act(s) of Valor... (by the way it's a pretty good movie.. tho the acting isn't that great, but they are real soldiers, not actors, thats why..) If they do that movie again... it would be fairly similar.. just diff locations, and diff enemies... same military style..

don't blame the game, blame the source material... and again, if you don't like it.. don't buy it, I stopped buying Madden games after 2004.. and i don't complain about the series anymore.. I suggest alot of you do the same for CoD

What would make me glad is if everyone boycotted Black Ops 2 in favour of RE 6. Man that would send major reverberations throughout the industry.

We will have to see "IF" there will be a COD game this year. If there is then I hope ppl walk away from it because this annual repetition is getting "ridiculous".

Its becoming a money making exercise for Activision and Treyarch. We videogamers should rise above this and not hand these developers an easy ride. We should boycott this garbage in favour of a game which has been worked on for several years---> RE 6.

That would send out the perfect message to Activision and co. We fans aren't money factories. We are human beings who expect the highest quality of gaming and not rehashed trash.

Hope ppl understand from where I am coming from. PEACE.

^^^^ You don't understand ^^^^

Sadly, it's not full on gamers who fund this game, people who actually are gamers and love games and love just everything about them and innovation and all that great stuff.

Even if all the true gamers go on a boycott.. Atci won't even feel it.

COD is an evil monster created by the world. COD is made up of 10-40 year old boys, who have made it "the cool" thing to do. It will continue to be the cool thing for a long time probably 5 more years or so. I mean seriously, this game is simply just pop culture. I think it ruins the image of a game, because now people who play cod once are like: "LOL IMMA GAMER DUDE I PLAY COD!". I mean sure the first couple weren't bad games, they were just another war game, then they took over.

If only someone other than acti had control over this situation. Treyarch and Infinity ward would have to work together, having a release every other year. Making new high qualtiy games.

Unfortunatley Acti is doing what they do best, oh this makes money, lets milk the tit dry until it is dead.

So, while Guitar Hero was never a best selling as COD, they did eventually kill it. They will indeed kill COD again, a boycott won't do it. But eventually even the stupidest of 10-40 year olds who think COD is teh GREATEST EVAH, will get board of the same old.

So after this huge post, my conclusion would be, Acti will either run COD into the ground and blow it up then pee all over it with remakes and trying to bring it back. Or they will keep re-hashing till they loose a lot of numbers, then they will come out with something new, and probably actually good, then continue the re-hash cycle.

I am actually a fan of the Call of Duty games. Some are better than others, but overall it is a pretty good franchise. My only problem is with the developers and parent company, not with the games. They expect payment before creating a finished product, and they feel little to no obligation in ensuring that their product is (and remains) acceptable to the consumer. So yes, I will play this future Call of Duty game, but I will do my best to make sure Treyarch/Infinity Ward/Activision don't get my money (IE: Renting, or buying it preowned).

hopefully this is like the first. The multiplayer was alot more fun than MW3, with Blops i was 3rd prestige inside 2 weeks of release, I'm struggling to even be bothered with MW3 especially now they've added 10 more prestiges and not even been bothered to create new badges

Still prefer if there was no Zombie mode though its just wasted achievement points on my profile

@10 Think about what you just said lol. Why would they change the core gameplay of Call of Duty? It's the most successful formula in FPS history and will continue to dominate that particular market. Nothing's going to slow down the CoD juggernaut, nothing's going to kill it and it's going to be around for a long, long time, so get used to it. That being said, as a fan of the old-school CoD formula, I was thoroughly impressed with Black Ops and had way more fun playing it than I did MW3. I still play MW3 and I hate it. Why? Because it's still Call of Duty and CoD has the best simplistic arcade-style shooting mechanics. Nothing can touch it and you know it. I'm sure Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3 are great games for what they are, but they just don't interest me. I agree that CoD is due for a new setting, but that'll come in time. A futuristic CoD would be amazing. I wouldn't even mind a proper Vietnam game, tbh. Heck, they could even go back to WW2 for all I care, as long as they ditched the killstreak reward system.

Honestly I have no shame in admitting I enjoyed Blops 1. I'll probably buy this one too. I support Treyarch, I find their games to be much better than IW's. With the exception of CoD 4 being the best (before modders fucked it beyond and playability.)

I must admit I am tired of cod, but BO was the best one to date. So I have high hopes for this. I dont think its possible to be worse than mw3.

#12 no they are not, they are just ripped off from different games and called something else. Except gun game which is a total rip off from Counter-Strike.

Personally I think COD4 was the best of all of them and it didnt have all the shitty modes like the rest of them do. It just had a really enjoyable campaign.

But why change the copy paste formula if you are making billions on it every year?

if you think about it, your eye-sight doesn't improve when your in the same war. So maybe thats why the graphics stay the same?

however, that doesnt mean anything for the gameplay

@73... I would so totally play that game to death.
OT: Point of view from a 30-something gamer... I have played CoD4 and MW2. I didn't see much difference. From what I hear and see from everyone else around me, there's never much difference. If I buy a CoD game, I'm gonna buy the cheapest one at the time and just play it over and over and over instead of paying $60 every time a clone comes out. To the haters, I see your point. To the fanboys, I see your point, remembering (not that long ago) what is was like to have to buy something new and shiny when it comes out.
I do, however, think its sad that the developers seem to prey on this youthful need to buy the same thing over and over. I've seen a CoD game come out at least once a year for the past 5 years, and I was a game store manager for 3 of those years. 90% of the buyers of these games were under 18. Just makes me sad. I love games, but I abhor the sequel philosophy. Think about it.
Should Jurassic Park 3 have been made? No.
I Know What You Did Last Summer 7 or 8 or whatever? No.
A reboot of the TV series Night Rider? Nuuuuuu.
Time to step up CoD with something original.
And to all those who flame me for this, and I see it coming, well i guess that makes you a flamer. Prove me right :P

I didn't buy MW3 and I am not going to buy this. I have had it with COD making the same game and relabeling it something different to make a profit. I am fine with Black Ops for now, until the servers are filled with hackers and modders (thanks a lot activision for the upkeep of your servers).

@16 Horde 2.0 was just an iteration of various other survival game modes as well. Honestly it's tough to invent something entirely new these days.

On topic I personnally don't mind I mean if you don't like the games don't get them. I play them with friends that's about it. I mean isn't that the point of gaming anyways? To just have fun and not complain when people work their ass off to try and let you do that?

I'll preorder it and get it at midnight as usual. I love Treyarch's installments. I think I'm done with IW after MW3 though. If Treyarch follows in the noob friendly footsteps of MW3, then I'll be done with the CoD franchise.

@29 the last two Treyarch had unique titles. And I don't really see this as a true sequal to Black Ops.

@12 Kill Confirmed - Crysis 2 did that first
Team Defender- pretty much Oddball in Halo
Infected- been in Halo since 3
Drop Zone- pretty much King of the Hill which which has been in most shooters including Halo and Gears
Spec Ops Survival- a game mode made famous in Gears 2 that pretty much EVERY shooter has now
Yeah, just because they have different name does not make them 'new'.

@72 isn't that kind of what Activi$on already does every year?

@7 Let me regale you a tale of hatred and disgust, Universally hated putting out the same content any franchise will do be it x-men a, dead fish, or spider in conclusion Actiblizzard embodies these qualities and more so since they be hated thus sly industry workers and people with power in the gaming community don't care if a site gets black listed over petty bullshit, if anything people will love Gamepur for doing this as Acti is basically based on 2 games, with filler thrown in for looks and extra $$$, so honestly Gamepur is not missing out on that front. Plus they got their info off of a alleged public source so to hell with Acti( even though there already there).

More zombies? Yawn. More zombie mode achievements? Barf. Did like their bots multiplayer a lot though. Shame MW3 didn't do that...because Mission Mode and Survival Mode kinda suck, they really dropped the ball "amping it up" over MW2's.

i really don't have a problem with COD. it is just the opposite end of the spectrum from counterstrike. counterstrike hasn't had a new version in 7-8 years, and the new one will have the same maps that the last 2 did. call of duty updates slightly every year, and has 16-32 new maps a year.

I generally try to support companies who are updating something i like. when you all admit that each new call of duty is just a large map pack of the same game, you can see why i have been supporting it. the alternative is playing de_dust for the next 60 years.

is it worth the price tag every year? that would depend on your finances and your enjoyment. if money is the problem, you can take a year off and play the old ones. i was playing modern warfare 1 last week and it still has enough people (i bought it for $5 as well).

I believe that if you hate Call of Duty, stop reading articles about it and making hate comments on said articles. If the game isn't fit for you, then don't play it and don't worry about it.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand how, every CoD is met with anger and cries of "COPY & PASTE JOB!"

Yet, the past two Assassins Creed, games have been met with nothing but love & praise? Even though they are just Assassins Creed 2, with tiny, shitty bits tacked on.
Anyone else see this.....or am I going crazy?

60$ for Black Ops 2? I am pretty sure every CoD by treyarch is about 120$. 60$ for purching the game, then 60$ for additional content that is first released within a month of the game.

So will Black Ops 2 get an all expenses paid (by Activision) review at a spiffy hotel over 3 days? I sure we all remember the Ojai Valley Spa & Inn event that Activision forked out for with Black Ops. That put a major dent in the legitimacy of some reviews.

Idk about everyone else but I am tired of the same repetitive MW storyline. I wish (IW & Treyarch) would add conflicts not yet seen in COD history. Such as WW1, WW2 (First half, 1939-42), Korean War, Invasion of Grenada & Yugoslav Wars.

I thought that MW single player was way better than that of BO. Having said that, I thought MP was way better in BO than in MW, so I guess nothing's too certain at this point. Can't wait to hear/see more!

Nothing is actually BAD about Call of Duty. It has just become old and stale, the same game over and over.

In my personal opinion, the whole series has been a giant hill so far. In the beginning, the first few Call of Duty games were very good. Apparently then people started getting tired of WWII (I don't know how you possibly could, there is so much they could've explored) and went to Modern Warfare.

Simply great game! I regret trading it in after playing the living hell out of it for several years. Instead of being a sheer Michael Bay film, it was like Michael Bay meets some epic story writer, combined with a great INNOVATIVE *COUGH COUGH* multiplayer.

Suddenly, every other damn company out there just *had* to add in multiplayer to a game that didn't need it. As if some guy with a mega-phone was yelling at them, "Come jump on the bandwagon!" A surge of modern warfare games followed that as well. World at War was made, a simply great game that, although WWII, remained innovative.

Combining tanks (something that had never been done before in CoD) to multiplayer, on top of online co-op campaign and Nazi Zombies, it more than made up for a setting that was considered to be dried out. CoD reached its peak at this time, and then the period of stagnation began not too long after with MW2. It was a huge success profit wise, but felt too much like a Michael Bay tribute. Still, continued to add on a little innovation with Spec Ops and further enhanced multiplayer.

And then... dun dun dun... Black Ops hits. It broke records, but was a worthless piece of shit. It was if they had writers block, so they copied some ideas from Assassin's Creed and added in some guy named Mason who you had to play with, who constantly envisioned some old, sweaty dude named Reznov. Like what, are you gay? Please, by God, it was a pathetic waste of time. If they hadn't pleased the crowd by bringing back Nazi Zombies, it would have failed miserably. The only thing innovative about it was a few new game modes... Come on.

Modern Warfare 3! The most overrated, overhyped pile of garbage game made. One phrase perfectly described it: Michael Bay tribute. IW attempted to make it sound all cool by making the characters names "Sandman" and lame ass code words. Finished that shit in 6 hours on VETERAN. What the hell? That right there serves as proof that they don't put any effort into making these games anymore. Copy and paste, and anybody who says they don't is lying to themselves. Again, with bringing back old shit to hopefully stack on top of the shit and smother it up. In other words, Spec Ops. ONE SINGLE INNOVATIVE THING about the game was a horde mode, completely ripped off of things like Horde and Firefight.

Give. Me. A. Break.
