Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is quite possibly the worst kept secret in all of video game history, save for maybe the slim PS3, the PS Vita or just about every Call of Duty game before this one. Nonetheless, it is my duty to report on the latest slew of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 news because you want to hear about it and I want to mock Activision’s failure at secrecy.
The first trailer for the game went live last night, detailing what many of us already expected ; Call of Duty Black Ops 2 will feature lots of guns and explosions and once we got over that giant bomb of a surprise, we got to see the first Call of Duty Black Ops 2 screenshots , as well as a release date for the game, both of which were hilariously leaked days before the proposed May 1st announcement.
If you’re interested in hearing about what Activision’s latest attempt at setting the world record for the best selling game in history (a title they garnered with Call of Duty Black Ops 1) then you can read and watch all of the latest Call of Duty Black Ops 2 info after the break.
- First up – the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 announcement trailer.
- Secondly – the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 screenshots.
These “quadrocopters” look like the spawn of a ceiling fan and a hovercraft. Maybe that’s exactly what they are, maybe this is the reason everyone is so excited about the new Call of Duty (imagine the taglines for that).
In all seriousness, what it does mean is that Call of Duty is, once again, dealing with future-Earth dwellers, meaning that the release of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 leaves little room for Modern Warfare to thrive, especially as Battlefield 3 is likely to get a future-set sequel too. (I predict that serious market saturation will happen, a la World War 2 shooters and Call of Duty will go the way of Guitar Hero).
- Finally – the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 release date.
A holiday season release date, as always – the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 release date is November 13th, 2012.
