Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Spied Online as Acti Snaps Up Domain Name

Richard Walker

Could this be the beginning of Treyarch's own Call of Duty behemoth, a la Modern Warfare? Perhaps. Especially if Activision's acquisition of the domain name BlackOps2.com has any significance to it. Apparently, the name was snapped up shortly after Call of Duty: Black Ops was announced back in May 2010, so it could be that the publisher was hedging its bets for a possible sequel.

Or it could be that a sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops was always part of Activision's plan, which is why the domain name had been locked down by privacy protection on Whois until this week. BlackOps2.com was spotted and reported by Fusible, who noted that Acti went through brand protection firm MarkMonitor, buying up names from BlackOps2.com to BlackOps6.com.

And with this year being Treyarch's turn to take on Call of Duty, it could be that the developer is planning a return visit to Black Ops, especially given the game's overwhelming success upon its release in 2010. Obviously, there's no confirmation or information regarding the next Call of Duty title just yet, but Black Ops 2 certainly seems like a pretty safe bet.

  • Here we go...
  • Shocker!
  • Surprise Surprise.. its the only good thing treyarch has done with call of duty.. Can't wait.. more fucking numbers.
  • Let the 12 year old fan boys commence!
  • black ops 2?? the mayans were right after all ..we're all doomed
  • whyyyyyyyyyyy
  • Really wish they went back to a WAW game. That game was the shit.
  • somebody please put this cow out of it's misery...it's been milked enough
  • Well considering the Intel you could find in the Black Ops campaign, and that little 'hacking' mini-game, this was pretty inevitable. Mason, that dude with one eye and Hudson (Is that his name?) had a kill order put on them after the events of the game, in case you weren't particularly bothered about the intel. I'll definitely get this one. I'm not big on the IW CoDs, but I've always felt Treyarch do a better job of supporting the game after release than IW, ala patches, DLC content (MP Maps PLUS zombie maps) etc.
  • I would love just a Zombies game, I have great fun playing with my mates and having competitions between ourselves to see who doesnt go down the most or who can get the most points. But if Black ops 2 has zombies i guess ill be happy about that.
  • If Black Ops 2 is released and has Zombies, I'll buy it! In my opinion, that is the best thing that has come out of Call of Duty.
  • "Reznov is dead, or is he dead, there was no body, is he who he says he is"
  • Oh yeah baby! Hate all you want, Black Ops was my fave CoD by a long way, wont be getting it day one but good to know that i will get another dose of sweet sweet zombie action, eventually. Got to get bored of Horde mode on GoW3 first though, which will taker a long time.
  • no no no no no!! nothing like ruining a franchise! theyve taken it too far now...black ops was a terrible game, yes zombies was good but damn im not paying 40 quid for on mode that ill soon get bored of! i hope to gawd it isnt another black ops!
  • pretty sure the next one is supposed to be called Iron eagle, which sounds MUCH cooler. Hopefully it won't be black ops 2 and they are just preparing for possible future releases as IE sounds MUCH better, plus a squeal to BO would be dumb. Great game, easily the best story in the series, but not much room for a sequel.
  • Black Ops 2 Really ? The worst & most unimaginitive Title possible, surely they could just add some stupid prefix word like Ressurection or Armageddon to make it sound a bit less rubbish & a bit more flashy
  • the excitement is almost too much to take! omg!
  • i've had enough of call of duty haters, dont like it dont buy it dont comment dont think about it shut up
  • In my opinion, black ops is one of the best cods, and i will be getting black ops 2, but i just cant get away with zombies, maybe this game will change my mind, not looking forward to all the childish emblems though =/
  • How could they build from the story though...
  • it wouldnt be the same if a Call of Duty game didnt come out EVERY SINGLE YEAR. wow. this game hasnt changed since Call of Duty 2 when the 360 FIRST came out. if anything, they made it worse. because they focus more on the horrible multiplayer then anything else. this is a fail like all the other 6 call of duty games. i agree with #8 on here, they need to just kill of the call of duty franchise, even though that will never happen cause of all the little kiddies who freak out when they see a number next to the same game they played two years ago, so that must mean Black ops too is going to be nothing like all the other ones. haha. yeah right. it will be 100% the same game. but it will stay around forever, cause it is pretty much the biggest selling game that microsoft has to offer. which is sad.
  • Jesus christ someone put shis bitch down already. MW3 is the last COD game im getting. And for the love of god put the zombie maps on sale already.
  • This will be my last CoD game I'm buying for awhile I'm not paying $60 every year for the same shit -_-
  • Do something new. Like CoD Space Marines. I would buy that.
  • People on this site whine so much it's unreal.Shut the fuck up if you don't care jesus christ. Pretty excited for whatever it is.Treyarch is who I prefer
  • @3 Ha! Its the third fuck up Treyarch has ever done for Call of Duty, the only good things that have ever happened to the series is is Call of Duty, United Offensive, Roads to victory, Call of Duty 2 and Big Red One. Call of Duty 3 was fine but, it wasn't a Call of duty game, it was a Battlefield game and do not even get me started on Cod4!
  • To everyone saying that they should stop making Call of Duty games, why would they do that? At the end of the day, Activision is a company out to make money, and Call of Duty makes them a bucket load each year. Why shoot the cow when its still producing milk people will buy? I say, if you don't like Call of Duty, don't buy it. There are plenty of other games out there.
  • I haven't really liked any Treyarch CoDs since CoD3 (probably an unpopular opinion) so I'll probably sit this years game out.
  • @22 If you think Call of Duty hasn't changed since CoD2, you clearly haven't played Call of Duty. Ever.
  • @18 U MAD?
  • Okay, I have to say this because its one hundred percent true. I'm not out to hate or out anyone but seriously? MW3 was just released 2 months ago and now already there's word of the next one. I never have been a fan of CoD, only really played it because it game me the chance to play with my friends, thats it. MW3 didn't really suck me in because of two reasons only; BF3 and Skyrim. And even this new one thats coming out, there's Borderlands 2, Fall of Cybertron, and Halo 4. I would rather lose 500 million times on either of the latter two games then go out and buy yet another game that's just going to be thrown to the way side a year later. Only thing I liked about Black Ops was combat training, at least the bots werent pathetic enough to use the more pathetic "strategies" that online users would. Honestly, if CT does make a return if this game is real, I MIGHT buy it, huge emphasis on might.
  • @4 that's not fair. a lot of mature people like call of duty too. i guarantee there are twelve-year-olds playing every game you think is superior to COD.
  • Great, more crap
  • Really enjoyed Black ops, can't wait for this.
  • @22 Oh look, another boring, big headed idiot who assumes that people who play a game that's different to him, or 'mainstream', is a kiddie. I feel for people like you... so out of touch with reality, it's a shame. @31 Please learn how to use that phrase. It only really works when they either swear excessively, or resort to spam of the caps lock button. In other words, yours doesn't. @32 'I would rather lose 500 million times on either of the latter two games then go out and buy yet another game that's just going to be thrown to the way side a year later.' Yeah... because Halo doesn't release a game every year, does it. I don't give a crap if the multiplayer component this year was only an expansion to Reach... I loved it at the start, but I've done that game! I've now got to the point where it's a chore to level up.
  • 37: Aside from 2008 (when a lot of H3 DLC was released anyway, not to mention Wars was released in Feb 2009) Halo has been a yearly release since Halo 3. I never understood the hate for Black ops, it was miles better than the mess that is MW2/3.
  • Not another black ops, might just be me but i personally think treyarch's games are so much better in world war II.
  • Achievements only for another recycled COD game!!!
  • ill do the same for this as i do with other games. see what its like first and/or try a demo. then ill decide if i wanna buy or not.
  • treyarch>>>>>>>>IW this will be better than mw3 (online)
  • If it has zombies and A BUNCH of new zombie maps I'm in.. Don't care for multiplayer..
  • until every installment of Call of Duty stops making them ridiculous profit, they will continue to make them. Period. Not that hard to understand why they continue to make the games. Game consoles are more than just for hardcore gamers now.
  • I was able to accept MW3 since MW1 and 2 were so great, but a Black Ops 2?? No need. Drill it into the ground why don't you Activision. You will not be getting my money this time around.
  • MW2 Was the pinacle of MP IMO, i dont play BO or MW3, But THIS will be amazing because of ZOMBIESSS !!! God i love Zombies, hope theres more maps this time round :)
  • @34 U MAD? @37 U MAD?
  • please stop making COD so boring now and they will NEVER better call of duty 4
  • MW 1, 2 & 3 Black Ops 1, 2 & undoubtedly 3. COD Inception: A franchise within a franchise.
  • Black Ops 2....aka Call of Duty 10 How much longer can they milk this cow? They already destroyed Guitar Hero, let's see how much longer this series lasts with multiple yearly installments
  • I liked Black Ops' single player a lot.. so hopefully this one can live up to it!
  • mw3 best game iv ever played cue the over-opinionated man-children who hate the game enough to treat it like they have already played it !!!
  • Defeating a sandwich, only makes it tastier! I liked Black Ops multiplayer more than MW3, but I didn't enjoy the story as much.
  • I can't wait for Blops6, only 3 years to finally get that awesome game with so many changes compared to blops1-5 /sarcasm
  • Oh no no no I'm not buying another Treyarch shitty COD game. Spending 2 hours of my life on a stupid Easter Egg only to get screwed over in the 2nd last step. Fuck that. Not wasting my time on something like that again. And before any idiot has a follow up comment, yeah, I am mad. It's dumb.
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYa5aQb3YGE
  • If it gets the COD kids off of BF3 so they stop ruining it, I'm all for it.
  • I was not a fan of Black Ops. The campaign was fun, but online was kind of boring. And I like Zombies, but I really, really, really wish they would not tie achievements into it. I still don't have the full 1500 in WaW just because that earn 75000 points in one game, and there is a shit ton of achievements in Black Ops that I really don't want to do. Ive played zombies a little, and its fun to just see how far you can go, but when there is specific things you have to do, especially when the levels are pretty difficult even after level 10 if you have something else you are trying to do, it just pisses me off.
  • @47 YOU IGNORED ?that will counter your troll lame 1978 phrase ,ffs get some original material instead of being a sheep .if you went up to someone who was mad in the street and said that they would beat you to death ..
  • @32- I agree that there are many good games coming out. Borderlands 2 is the game I'm looking forward to the most this year. But, you need to calm down. They didn't announce anything. Somebody just noticed (out of the interest people have in CoD) that the domain name was taken. Who cares what your opinion or my opinion on CoD is. There are millions that are probably excited about this announcement. OT: My opinion- Treyarch is better than Activision & Black Ops was better than MW3 in so many ways. Loved Black Ops MP and single player, looking forward to Black Ops 2.
  • I enjoyed Blops in single player but never really got into the MP. I'm not against new COD games as they tend to all be pretty good.
  • HOW ORIGINAL!! I CANT WAIT FOR CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE 54!!
  • What i want to know out of everything that has been said......WILL THERE BE MORE ZOMBIE KILLING?
  • Well...I can't blame them, there really isn't much more different territory they can go without the game play by default being boring (ie, WWI or earlier) or being in the far future (in which case, calling it Call of Duty is entirely pointless).
  • I think I'd rather play Gears of War 2 online again lol. I'm gonna pass on it, whatever Treyarch makes it just hasn't been that good in my opinion.
  • I prefer battlefield. What confuses me is that every cod related thing almost everyone gives it hate yet millions play it.
  • @66 That's because not "almost everyone" gives it hate. It's just that on the internet, there's more Battlefield fanboys than Call of Duty fanboys. Which is probably good, because the CoD fanboys are much worse...
  • Getting this one, because treyarch makes balanced CODs. No offense but i hate MW3
  • Shhhhh, Society is so dumb these days we'll just slap a 2 on it, and they wont even know!
  • Black Ops 6 why not..
  • Loved black ops so obviously I will be going for this one unless they pull some really annoying stuff with it.
  • New engine or no buy
  • Fact: Black Ops was way better than MW3!
  • @66 COD has just as many haters as it has fans OT: Probably won't get it if it's like mw3, i'm sorry but anybody who's smart knows mw3 has done absolutely nothing new. That doesn't mean BO2 won't(good chance though)
  • game up on COD it sucks
  • @59 U MAD?
  • Unlock most of you girls, I'm gonna withhold judgement. If I see that the next CoD has made a significant change to the formula then I'll most likely buy it. But I gotta admit that after MW3 I am a little CoD fatigued...
  • Black Ops was #2 after The original MW. Might place WOW at 3rd. MW2 and MW3 complete let-downs. I've played them all going back to Allied Assault on PC. Total Cash Grabs anymore.
  • I think Black Ops was my favorite from Treayrch, but I can't see where they can sequel next, unless all it has in common with first game is the title, sorta what Prey2 does...
  • How's this for a sweet idea for those who love a good dose of zombies in their COD routine? How about upon completion of the campaign, they allow you to replay it, only this time it's full of zombies instead. Like the guys you killed the first time through have risen from the grave ready to go again... Each level could be set at night with the eerie zombie music replacing the pulse-pounding score of the main game... You know it would own guys...
  • I wonder how many more titles CoD will go on for, everyone knows there'll be another CoD this year, there always is. I wont buy it unless they actualy change things, make something fresh about it instead of the same thing yet again. Im not a hater, I just hate what CoD has become. Other titles, build things, create universes, (yes, I'm thinking of Halo here). Other titles work to create unique experiences, fresh ideas, all that CoD does is recycle the same thing now, which is rather sad to see. Treyarch do at least improve things some, and listen to their comunity a bit, the zombie mode boom, the inclusion of theatre mode, even if its a useless machinima engine, was a big step forwards... then a step back with MW3 by IW... I personly refuse to buy MW3, returned BO because I generaly found it the same as other titles, I wont buy this next title, or the one after, unless improvements are actualy made to inovate the system, even then, I still dont know if ill buy it.
  • So the CoD title they're working on now is called "Project Iron Wolf"
  • And here I was hoping for Future Warfare.
  • Never saw it coming !
  • @80 Funnily enough, that is actually a good idea. Why aren't you working on these? :P It makes me miss the old days of CoD 4 and WAW, when there were cheats you could put on. 'Aftermath' on CoD 4: Depressing and solemn normally 'Aftermath' with Ragtime warfare: Hilarious.
  • @80, that is actualy quite a good idea as an extra. I'd personly love a campaign dedicated to the zombies theme, as well as the normal maps, multiplayer vs, normal multiplayer, with zombies included as well would be an intresting idea. Making it a bit more chalanging
  • I'd bite for a BlackOps 2. So interested in the Cold War period.
  • I like the way that Treyarch has that interactive thing with the player, like the intel info that was given, the easter eggs, theater mode and much more. i would buy a Black Ops 2.
  • WaW is the best COD Treyarch has dished out.
  • Blackops6 ? Really? Fuck sake...
  • Rental
  • I really wish the FPS genre would die off for the rest of this generation. Sick of FPS games. On topic though did anyone not see this coming? Activision is all too predictable.
  • battlefield destroys CoD and they (CoD)are now the official Guitar Heroes of FPS (ironically made buy the same people). i own all CoDs cept for MW3 (which i will not buy) and i will NOT be buying this one either. what they should do is revamp the WaW series or possibly fix the hacked lobbies @#89 your completely right!!!! even better yet, stop making Call of Duty all together. why would i wanna buy ANOTHER game where people do nothing but use cheap tactics, camping, hacking and noob tubes all the time? im sticking with BF and when BF 4 comes out, ima get that, when BF puts Activision and Treyarch and IW outta business....i will send them a bouquet and a thank you card!!! DICE, EA, FROSTBITE FOREVER BITCHES!
  • People just jelly cause Activision are clever. They make money. They have a strategy. I don't really blame them. I think the haters are just bitter cause them dun got no moneys.
  • Okay guys seriously. Im actually quite interessted if there is gonna be a BO2. I only bought mw3 for the campaign. I actually liked BO multiplayer much more than mw3`s and the singleplayer in BO wasnt bad. And nobody likes a graphic whore. Games comes in many varities. A game does not need to be perfect to be a good game. I think treyarch has found their path to sucess and maybe it will be as good (or bad for the haters out there) as the modern warfare series. mw3`s campaign was good,multiplayer... meh it was okay. So i think (my personal opinion)BO multiplayer was way more entertaining. black ops won my vote after this round of treyarch vs infinty + co. :)
  • I honestly thought Black Ops was the best CoD, and usually this would be viewed as a good thing. This isn't a usual thing. The franchise has gone on for far too long, and its come far too late. They need to draw the line and leave it, at least for a good few years.
  • At least black ops was better than MW3
  • If they want to make something unique, why not have a WaW style CoD with the following storylines: 1. American Revolution- 1775-1783 (Maybe a campaign with the French, and/or German mercenaries as enemies) 2. American Civil War- 1861-1865 3. Korean War- 1950-1953 4. Proper Vietnam War- 1955-1975 5. Persian Gulf War- 1990-1991 6. Mexican-American War- 1846-1848 7. Border War- 1910-1919
  • never mind black ops 2 the best cod was world at war how about number 2????
  • As long as they dont get Sam Worthington back to do the worst voice acting in history part 2,its all good
  • Good It can wash this dirty taste of mw3 out of my mouth. Black ops was great, solid multi layer/zombies/wager matches. Whats there not to like... MW3 easily biggest disappointment for me of last year.
  • yawn
  • lets hope it comes out you never no it might be a bit better than the last one but i think the first one was all right
  • No Treyarch Zombie-only game? :( I'm not gonna buy all map packs for just 4 zombie maps again! D:
  • Can't wait, loved the first one. MW3 kinda sucks and disappointed me, BO rocks in splitscreen!!
  • VOMIT. Reading this news actually made my insides hurt. They haven't hurt this bad since Homefront 2 was announced. Just... why? Why, Treyarch? Just stop.
  • Black Ops6? Even Activision should have better long term business plans than this.
  • This was expected, but lets just hope its nothing like mw3. Im sure it wont be though cause treyarch has ALWAYS been better.
  • wait... so they're franchising it and breaking away like MW did?
  • how do people still play it, they do know how to milk it, dead game
  • Hopefully it's like black ops so when you down someone you can't get your kill stolen and they won't go down if you shotgun them. And lets hope it doesn't include the horrible lag compensation of MW3, cause if it does, I won't buy it, just like I didn't buy MW3.
  • i dont want to buy it but i will
  • @101 QFT. Also, black ops2 = very uncreative name hahaha
  • hopefully there will be more zombies maps when the game is launched
  • The COD franchise died after COD4
  • Activision milks this franchise like a pregnant woman's tits
  • They should just stop calling these games call of duty and just release MW and then BLOPS. Stupid.
  • @98 There are far more to choose from then just the American wars -_- But of the ones you mentioned: 1.No ( would not go over well in Europe) 2.No ( might not sell well in other parts of the world) 3.YES! 4.Would never be historically accurate (and if it was there would be a huge uproar in the USA) 5.No ( too soon for a actual war) 6.Not familiar with it as I'm not American ( that means many others wouldn't be either) 7. same as 6
  • @115 Cod died after [email protected] because both Infinity Ward and Treyarch had both made amazing game...they should have left it at that. Please answer people, why does everyone love "MODERN" so much.
  • ZzZombies!!! That's the main reason I get these games.
  • Acti? jesus christ this is one lazy journalist.
  • expected/10
  • @ #118, well, look at Rambo IV, before I watched it, I never knew there was a Civil War in Burma. And that's the important thing, people will never know unless it gets brought into the light. Something that doesn't get a lot of press will get people's attention if it is something people haven't seen before. World at War and MoH: Airborne got my interest in WWII, and the MW series got my interest into 21st century warfare. Western games were the underdogs of the shooter industry and CoJ and Red Dead spiked people's interest. And the American Revolution...well that happened nearly 229 years ago, I am 100% certain no one is going to try to make a controversy out of it. Besides people idiotically beg for a game that doesn't have AK-47s, an MP5 variant, or a Beretta 92xx in it (When those three firearms are some of the most popular in the world). Muskets, flintlock pistols, etc answers their cries. Hey, we can (maybe) stop people with rapid fire controllers, since they would need to reload after every shot. That is one less group of people to worry about. And no noobtubes, no helicopters, no nukes, no quick-scoping since guns really didn't have scopes back then. About the Vietnam War, look at Shellshock 1. That was a Vietnam War video game, and it did fairly good. And there are a few games that are set during the First Gulf War (mostly plane simulators). But hey, me I'm for one bringing obscure historical events into the spotlight, and Assassin's Creed is doing a good job at it (I still wish they whole Animus thing was left out, and it just focused on history and not that whole New Age mumbo jumbo.) But yes, if done right, obscure history can become popular.
  • I liked Black Ops, thats not a so bad news...
  • Hating on CoD is so 2011 . . .
  • This is the one codenamed Iron Wolf yes?
  • @123 I agree that making a game about obscure historical events would be very interesting for many (including myself) and Personally I would be more inclined to buy it if it were, however a large portion of the market would be devistated by the fact that the weapons are not all high tech and would sinply brand it as a crap game. Financially it would make less sense and lets face it that is all that they care about. side note, I completely agree with your Assassin's Creed comments.
  • HOLY SHIT LOOK IT'S COD2 AGAIN!
  • @ 126 Yes. Type in "Project Iron Wolf" and a few sites will explin it. One will have a picture of a Treyarch user on friends list status saying "Playing Team Deathmatch on unknown map"
  • Can't wait for this extreme original game! Seriously, this MUST be a joke.
  • Just what we need... another CoD...
  • HERE IS A REVOLUTIONARY IDEA: Stop arguing over something so idiodic. IT IS A VIDEOGAME! Everyone is entitled to their opinion and no one cares if you disagree! If you don't like Call of Duty, then don't comment on this. If you see someone else trolling, don't respond. I AM SO SICK of all of these cliche arguments on the internet about NOTHING!
  • CALL OF DUTY 4 was pretty much where the bar was set and now every COD is trying to innovate...... Yeah
  • Jesus Christ. At the Halo and Gears of War series change from time to time. It is in no doubt the Halo 2 was a completely different game from Halo: Combat Evolved. And Halo 3 (An Xbox classic) is different from Halo 2. Halo: ODST wasn't very much different from Halo 3, but it still offered a new feel to the series. Halo Wars was a completely different game, hence it not being an FPS. Halo: Reach is utterly different from all of the Halos. The same can be said for Gears of War. Not only do all Gears of War game have different functions, mechanics, and character 'feel' to them, but aside from character design, they never truly "copy and paste" any of their work. Graphic and game-play wise. Meanwhile, you have COD over here. COD 2 was somewhat noticeably different from COD1 and maybe other previous installments. COD3 was definitely an 'up' to the series; COD4 being the pinnacle of originality. After COD4, the series has distinctly been the same. Same movement, same perks, 'copy and paste' skins ans graphics, etc... Overall, what I'm trying to say is that COD is stale. Aside from the different guns, it's really just the same. Yes. Everyone has their own opinion is games. And believe it or not; I like COD! That still doesn't justify it's lack of effort. And just like the flock of sheep this game has attracted, you may find me probably purchasing the next one in the hopes of something new. Although I have never had more than 2 COD's in my household, for I sell one before buying the other -- unlike Halo and Gears.
  • You're all fucking idiots for playing this shit. Unless you're 13 years old because then you really don't know right from wrong.
  • Treyarch makes better online maps than Activision in map detail and time and effort taken to make no corner safe and no hut with no less than 3 entrances. I would rather play Black Ops 2 than Modern Warfare 2 or 3.
  • Let's see how many map packs they can squeeze out of this one. My money's on eight, since Microsoft raised the GS cap.
  • Black Ops is a garbage game, and it doesn't need a sequel. The campaign was lame, predictable, and VERY cheesy. The multiplayer is a piss-poor excuse for having fun.
  • MW3's online was disappointing, hopefully Treyarch will release another good COD game.
  • Black Ops was the first Call of Duty game in which I began playing multiplayer, it gave me many achievements, and Zombies was a hell of a lot of fun. I imagine there will be a bunch of hate on this like with MW3, but I do look forward to it.
  • Black Ops MP was pretty bad, but MW3 outdoes it in my opinion. It has already been mentioned above, but I would love to see Treyarch do a sequel to WaW, the Vietnam theme just doesn't gel with me
  • How is it that 3/4 of ppl commenting have no more than at least 100 forum posts, really
  • I hope this isn't the final name for this. I'm not here to troll, but Black Ops 2 is the worst name for a game that I've ever heard. It just doesn't go together at all. How about Black Ops:*insert something cool here*?
  • People complain that cod doesn't become something different, fact is unless you want to be riding horses shooting arrows at eachother, or there's another significant war in the world, its just gonna be the same old shit. Go complain to somebody who gives a shit.
  • @22 You have clearly never played a Call of Duty game... Your comments are ignorant and make you seem moronic. Plus Microsoft don't 'offer' this game they have nothing to do with development or publishing. Why kill a franchise that breaks records almost every year and makes them millions? Why don't we kill you instead? The World then would have 1 less fool.
  • I love how many people are bitching on an ACHIEVEMENT website. Jesus Christ people. CoD games are great for achievements, unlike the terrible game that is BF3. Let's play until we hit level 50 or whatever dumb number. LOL
  • me-"Hey Robert! I just got Call of Duty 4284960267548694372, which just released 5 minutes ago! wana play!" robert-"Screw that, EVERYBODY is talking about CoD 4284960267548694373" me-"Well this is just to much"
  • Call of Duty needs to go back and rethink..."what made COD4 amazing?" DO THAT!!
  • so they've done everything from WW2-Vietnam - Blops was a fun campaign and decent enough story and fun mp... but really, what can happen next that doesn't tread into MW or a repeat of what we've already played? Add zombies? Big deal, never played the zombies mode and releasing a zombies only dlc was silly. Make a CoD Space.
  • @142 Don't really see how that's relevant.
  • I think its reasonable to expect something new from Treyarch, given they have been the more innovative of the 2 developers of the COD franchise. Whatever they do with it, be it Black Ops 2 like this article might suggest, or a new/different angle, Treyarch will surely be looking to try something new, as it has semi-recently with zombies. I'm neither against nor for COD's as a rule, but I think Infinity Ward has given us 3 very similar games lately, whilst Treyarch has at least tried to spice it up a bit, which they should be applauded for.
  • I dont even like Call of Duty but I find it hilarious how many people shit all over it all the time yet is has been the highest selling game every year 3 years running and the top 3 highest grossing games of all time are Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops, and Modern Warfare 3... obviously people like these games... Activision is going to keep making them as long as people keep buying them... you want them to quit making these "shit" games? DONT FUCKING BUY THEM! Instead you bitch and bitch and bitch online then buy the shit day one then play it non stop for 4 weeks then go back on the internet and bitch about how shit they are... sad... just sad... people are going to bitch about great games no matter what... while everyone else is playing the next Call of Duty come November Ill still be playing Mass Effect 3 from March and people are going to shit all over that too... just fucking enjoy the games you play... that is the entire point of playing a game... if you dont enjoy it dont buy it, dont play it, end of story...
  • Shit. . . .I just recentlly started replaying Black Ops and I've become addicted to it (impo its my favorite CoD) so a sequal would work for me. Lets see where this goes.
  • I already decided that mw3 was my last cod especially since treyarch is making the next one. Black ops was terrible and black ops 2 or any other game made by treyarch will suck. IW>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Treyarch
  • should've been called Green Ops
  • Yawn... they don't excite me like they used to, all for the reason said above many times. It has been generally the same game since 4. A couple added things here and there, maybe if they would actually incorporate new ideas, maybe destructible environment besides windows, maybe some vehicles like Call of Duty 3. I am quite tired of playing the same game each year, yes campaigns are good on all of them but multi-player just stays the same besides new maps and new guns. All other leading competitors have built upon their games to make them better and target a lot more interesting things. Looking forward to GRAW 3...
  • Think I'm actually gonna stop feeding this dead horse now. I didn't rate Black Ops, so I wont be getting this. I'm sticking to WaW :p
  • They should just drop all the sub titles and come out with CoD 5 already.
  • Call of Madden 2012 : Super Arcade Undead Edition Now with guns, grenades and throwing knives! You can run, jump, shoot and crouch! INSANE campaign mode where you play as two different squads of characters who have the exact same skills and control! COMING SOON Overpriced DLC (included on disc for quicker download) that are your FAVORITE maps from previous games! Included with each map is a zombie map that you can't buy separately because we know that's not the only thing you'll play!
  • Fix the multiplayer lag this time Treyarse.
  • Call of Duty must take a rest, and make a big comeback when the next-generation console arrives!
  • Lets hope it has a fresh Zombie mode!
  • It's amazing how offended people get developers make games... Also is anybody actually surprised about this? What's all the hubbub?
  • I heard the new one was gonna be called Call of Duty: Marmite...Love it or hate it. Thats terrible, I know.
  • Unless Black Ops 2(or whatever this year's CoD offering turns out to be) offers anything completely new or original, I doubt I'm ever buying another CoD game again. I got fooled by the hype and bought MW3 and absolutely regretted it. Never again.

  • I wish they would stop making Call of Duty's. It's just as bad as the Madden franchise. It's the same shit every year! This years installment didn't even offer better graphics. Stop supporting this shit!!
  • No better way to get page hits then to say something about a new COD. What adds to the humor is all of the mindless hate filled comments that just insures that more articles will be posted.
  • World at War 2 would be much better.
  • No...... just no..... The bad part is that all the sheep who just bought MW3, will buy this. Can't you people see it's the same frickin game every year? You pay $60 for a title update. LMAO!
  • Give it a rest, Activision. A year or so break and maybe you wont kill your own franchise like you did Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero.
  • OH MY GAWD GUYZ DIS GAME IZ JUS BLACK OPS 2.5 DONT GET IT!!!!! Oh piss off... some people are pathetic.
  • @76 UMAD?
  • I'm intrigued about the idea of zombies!!!!
  • Black ops fucking sucked.
  • Treyarch > Infinity Ward
