If you recall my blog post last week, I reported on a leak that revealed that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was in the works and was set to be released on November 13th. Well, as of today Treyarch has officially made an announcement confirming the game and the date for the release is still the 13th.
This will be the first Call of Duty game that takes place in a futuristic setting. In fact, the game is set in 2025 when terrorists hijack those weird remote controlled airplanes you can buy at Walmart and use them as weapons. Although I have always been more drawn towards Call of Duty’s Modern Warfare games, I feel like this Black Ops 2 release has a lot of potential. The idea is very new and different, and for that reason it is likely to draw a wide audience. I am sure I will get a copy of this game and I will probably put up are review when it comes out.
What are your thoughts and opinions on this new Black Ops 2? Do you like the idea of a futuristic Call of Duty game, or do you think they should let Halo take care of the futuristic settings and stick to their roots? Let me know in a comment!
