UPDATE: Further to my earlier comments/findings, more and more sources are claiming that Black Ops will take place in Vietnam as well as other locations too.
To keep the hype train alive for uber franchise Call of Duty, Activision have today announced Call of Duty: Black Ops. Little else has been revealed other than what we already know like how it’s being developed by Treyarch (the team behind Call of Duty 3 and World at War) and is doubtful heavily rumoured to be set in Vietnam. The official website offers only an early blog from Treyarch saying “We at Treyarch are excited to reveal our latest development – Call of Duty: Black Ops! Be sure to head over to CallOfDuty.com/blackops as more details begin to unfold! Follow @JD_2020 and @Treyarch on Twitter for the latest news & discussions regarding Black Ops.”
A few important question will hopefully be answered in the coming months like will Black Ops have dedicated servers? Will we have to pay an additional cost for said online gaming? And can it possibly live up to the explosive popularity of Modern Warfare 2? Most likely since if a game has Call of Duty in the title, it generally sells just fine. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released 9th November this year.
