Treyarch have taken the Call of Duty franchise into the future with their upcoming game release Black Ops 2. The game is to be set about 13 years into the future where there is a cold war taking place over rare earth minerals. The story is very believable as its quite plausible that countries could fight over these minerals in the future as they are used in all sorts of military drones and machines down to a mobile phone. You wont be spending all your time in the future though as part of the campaign takes place in the 80s with some familiar characters returning from the last game. You will be spending the majority of the story in the year 2025 as Alex Masons son David. You will be taking on China after their surprise rise to power.
