I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s nothing more I love than Amazon errors.
There was of course, the time that I reported that The Last Guardian release date had been leaked on the site and never one to disappoint, the French version of the retailing site, amazon.fr, has upped the ante, this time with a listing for Call of Duty 9.
Last week, gameblog.fr posted the original screencap of the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 listing and were consequently blacklisted by Activision for it, amazon.fr did delete the listing but they’ve posted another, related one and JSX has the picture. Not only that, but I’ve uncovered the very first details of Call of Duty 9 and its possible storyline.

Right under the ‘Call of Duty 9’ title, it states that it’s from Activision Inc., not by a well-connected troller then.
Of course it wouldn’t take Madame Lulu and her crystal ball to predict the release of a Call of Duty game in 2012 but what’s more important are the plot details.
This Is Xbox put up a post about Activision’s purchase of a Black Ops 2 domain name. The codename for the game, stated on the Activision-registered website is ‘Iron Wolf’
Taking the ‘Iron Wolf’ tagline, the Soviet Russia logo in the centre and adding my sleuthing skills into the mix, I traced Call of Duty 9 down to a wiki page.
According to wikipedia, Iron Wolf is “the core unit of Lithuanian Army” and was set up *officially* just after the end of the Cold War in 1989, also known as…the setting for the original Call of Duty Black Ops. This suggests that at some point during the course of the game, Activision, and developer Treyarch (listed as the developer on the teaser site) will allow us to assume the role of a member of the Lithuanian armed forces – role-switching is the Call of Duty franchise’s forte, after all.
Other things that my investigating turned up is the ‘Iron Curtain’ which, again according to wikipedia, is “the ideological fighting and physical boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of World War 2 in 1945 to the end of the Cold War in 1989”. Chances are that we’ll be fighting to dissolve that imaginary division by either dealing with the aftermath of the Cold War, or establishing the end of it. Either way, we’re in for one hell of an action packed ride.
