For months we’ve suspected, but only recently has the truth been confirmed: Black Ops II is coming! We still have a while left to wait—the game isn’t due out until November 13th, but we at least know for certain now that it’s going to be the sequel to Black Ops. Since it was Treyarch’s turn, we were pretty sure they’d produce a follow up to the highly successful Black Ops game, and now we’re being gratified with exactly that.
Black Ops definitely was one of the most popular entries to the Call of Duty franchise, and one could argue it was the most innovative game in the series. We loved the colorful maps, the game’s sense of humor, the excellent multiplayer capabilities, and of course, the zombies. The trip to the moon was pretty awesome too! Since one could argue that Black Ops was the best COD game yet, we think that the sequel could well blow it out of the water!
There have been a lot of rumors concerning the game, but not a lot of actual solid information. In two days, though, on May 1st, we’re going to be able to find out the answers to some of our questions. On that day, viewers who tune into the basketball playoffs on TNT will have a chance to watch the official Black Ops II Reveal. This is the first real announcement of the game. We hope to see some of the features, campaigns and new maps previewed in the Reveal, and maybe even be able to guess at the setting for the game. If Black Ops II is anything like its predecessor, then we know it’ll be great. Considering how much technology has evolved since then, we think it can only be better! This is Treyarch’s chance to really shine!
