Arguably the biggest game of the year launches in less than 24 hours: Call of Duty- Black Ops. So you know what that means... time to announce the impending sequel!
In case you weren’t sure whether or not Activision
was done with the series, rest assured they are not. Activision has hinted for months that further installments were already in development, with the most notable being Sledgehammer’s third-person adventure take on the franchise. According to the recent Activision-Blizzard
conference call, the next Call of Duty on the agenda is another first-person shooter slated for late-2011.
Basically, this is non-news. We all knew that the series was and is going to continue... now we just know it officially. I think that it will be interesting to see if Infinity Ward gets another crack at the series after all of the turmoil within the studio / Activision
this year... I guess time will tell...
