The other day, Activision announced that the latest game in the Call of Duty franchise will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops, and is set for a November 2010 release. It will be developed by Treyarch – the same developers who did CoD: World At War. I’m not sure if we can expect another MW game from Activision, with the recent quarrels between Activision and Infinity Ward (the creators of the MW sub-franchise and developers of CoD4 and MW2).
It’s fairly certain that Infinity Ward aren’t focusing on releasing MW3, but are instead coming up with another, unique IP. No doubt they’ll make something brilliant, but, until then, we have an all new CoD game coming our way, and it’s shaping up to be amazing.
