The lights are on
It seems Activision isn't waiting for E3 to unveil its latest Call of Duty title. A retail source snapped a photo of the purported reveal date.
Kotaku obtained the photo in question, showing the date of May 2, 2012. This is likely the date when the publisher will reveal the game and not the official release date. Call of Duty titles have traditionally been released in the fall.
Activision declined to comment on the photo. If true, we still don't know if this is a sequel to Black Ops. Earlier this year, Amazon France posted a listing for Black Ops 2, which was later taken down.
