Next Call of Duty called “Black Ops”

1 min read


The site for the next, Treyarch-developed Call of duty has gone live – and the game will be called Call of Duty : Black Ops, bringing an end to speculation of its setting. Contrary to previous rumours and speculation, the game will not be set in Vietnam. well, not entirely.

While the site doesn’t divulge much information, previous rumours about the game being called Black Ops may be true.

Rumours then included word that the game will be set in multiple periods in history – featuring Black Ops operations in the Cold War and World War II, all the way   present day, with missions in Vietnam, Cuba, South America and Iran. Seems the phantom raid theory might still hold some water.

Those same rumours also said the Zombie mode would be making its return – along with dedicated server support for the PC version. People learning from lessons? No way!

Treyarch have this to say on their blog :

“We at Treyarch are excited to reveal our latest development – Call of Duty: Black Ops! Be sure to head over to as more details begin to unfold! Follow @JD_2020 and @Treyarch on Twitter for the latest news & discussions regarding Black Ops.”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
