Black Ops Confirmed as the Next Call of Duty


Amidst all the brouhaha between Activision and Infinity Ward — which I couldn’t care any less about by the way, if you couldn’t already tell from my complete lack of coverage on the subject — the next Call of Duty has been announced.

Treyarch is back at the helm of the next Call of Duty, subtitled Black Ops, and the game is scheduled for retail deployment on November 9th. And, well..that’s about it on official details. Platforms haven’t been confirmed yet — but you can pretty much count on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 — nor has any information about the game’s setting, modes or other features been revealed, although reports of retailer listings stating that the game will consist of off-book Special Forces missions in Cuba, Vietnam, and the Arctic have surfaced.

More will be revealed tonight on GameTrailers TV.

“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.”
