The lights are on
Activision has announced a release date for the next Call of Duty game, Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game will be hitting shelves November 9. Keeping with the series' hot-potato developer tradition, this one is being developed by Treyarch. You might not believe this, but the studio is a little bit excited about its own product. Don’t believe me? Check this out:
“We can’t wait for our community to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for Treyarch. “We have focused our entire studio on this game, with dedicated multiplayer, single-player and co-op teams creating the most intense, gripping and riveting experience possible for our fans on all fronts.”
Players will explore… wait. Combat will take place in thrilling locations such as… dang it. You’ll step into the boots of… crud. You’ll be able to equip a wide array of weapons, including the devastating… nope. OK, fine. There isn’t much else to say about the game right now, other than the fact that it’s coming this November, it’s being developed by Treyarch, and the people who are making it say they are delivering a gripping and riveting experience.
Fortunately, more info is coming soon. A trailer is debuting on GameTrailers TV on Spike this evening. Check out the countdown clock here and prepare to learn more about a game where you shoot people.
An eagle-eyed reader has found a game-details page for Call of Duty: Black Ops posted on UK retailer Game that may provide a bit more information on the game. According to Game's Black Ops page, the game's single-player campaign takes place in areas such as Cuba, Vietnam, and the Arctic. It's still speculation at this point, but it at least lends a bit more credence to rumors that the game is set during the Cold War. We'll post more details on the game as they're made available.
Thanks for the tip, Jose.

pffffttt, i hope thats not an actual screen of the game
Treyarch doesn't impress me.
well hope its good love treyarchs games
this is probably the game based on the vietnam war that gameinformer hinted at early. Looks awsome if it is.
Sweet! I've always loved Treyarch's Call of Duty games. I can't wait for this! I just hope they don't do the whole monthly subscription thing.
I enjoyed WaW. I hope they keep the dark and bloody tone that WaW had for this game.
I will rent it for achievements then return it. I will have to get with Dan Ryckert on how to do them.
CAN'T WAIT! Will be watching it tonight! Oh, and guys, that image looks like it's from an older game. It's WW2, you can tell.
This will be one of those games where I'm desperate to play something new.
It's about *** time someone made a game where you shoot people.
I actually Prefer COD: WAW over MW:2.
This is the Vietnam game they told us about in one of their earlier issues this year isnt? I hope its good because i found some of this developers content to be awesome.
If the screen from above has to deal with it, all I can say is "oh yay another World War 1 or 2 game. Cause those just aren't a dead horse getting kicked."
Can't wait to see the trailer tonight. Treyarch was never as good as Infinity Ward, but now that Infinity Ward is no more this game will have to do. A Vietnam based game would be sweet. Hope thats where its set.
That picture isn't from the game... nowhere does it say that it is, and those graphics aren't anywhere near good enough to be the next CoD. Not that CoD's graphics are great to begin with...
I love hit boxes that extend a meter over a characters head. Oh wait.
....I pray to god that isnt screen play becuase it looks like crap from my view of the screen. :/ We will see what the preview will bring us gamers. :/
I'll give it a shot! Gonna be hard to top Modern Warfare, though. At least in my opinion.
