Unless my math is wrong, it looks like the wait for PC and PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops players for the Annihilation Content pack will end on July 28th.  Activision stated “To Launch in 13 days” in this morning’s release, so expect to hit your various DLC stores on the 28th.  Xbox 360 owners have had the content since June 28th, and probably have been getting a little bit of gameplay use out of it.  But for those of you still waiting that now have light at the end of the tunnel, check out the trailer to whet your appetite for what is to come.
