Call Of Duty: Black Ops Declassified 2 Coming In 2013?

A sequel to the PS Vita’s most heavily criticized title released this year may be in the pipeline.

According to a tweet (now deleted) on twitter made by Activision Social Media Manager, Dan Amrich, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Declassified 2 is in the pipeline and is scheduled for a Winter 2013 release. (Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified 2, PS Vita)

Hard to tell

If true, they have about 5 months to pick a developer and 5 months to make it.

I would like to see them make a new COD for the Vita, but giving it the same name as Declassified, will hinder it's chances of selling as well as a COD game should. They have 10 months to make it or longer if development started before the release of the first one.

kinda agree. But Assassins Creed (1) was bad and the sequels were much better.
I almost never tried the others cause the first. Wasnt till the most recent (before 3) I was convinced to throw my initial opinion out the window.

maybe on purpose they left the room on improvements, see U1 and U2

Wonder who'll be on coding duties this time, guess they've been signed if the news is imminent and with the engine in place, they can focus on fixes, improvements and content.

I play declassified at my buddy's yesterday, all I have to say is what the hell was Activision paying all the people on this site that talked it up!? If I paid for that game, I'd demand my money back! They need to port the console game or actually put some time into making the game good.

On a side note, Persona 4 was amazing! May buy a Vita for this the next time a promotion strikes.

I was one of those people, and Activision didn't pay me to talk it up. I like it for what it is, but I didn't really play COD much before that so I really didn't have anything to compare it to, other than Resistance.

After playing a bit of Black Ops and the MP of 2, I decided Declassified should have been better than what we got.

Um...

the author of this site didn't do a great job at research considering Dan Amrich's REAL twitter is "OneOfSwords"

:/

i think they're both actually 'REAL' twitter accounts...! @DanAmrich is linked to from his book's official website (criticalpath.com). @DanAmrich seems to mostly be about guitars, though, for some reason. not sure why he would connect it to his book about game criticism.
Kran  +   620d ago
Dan Amrich even admits the account is fake and that he doesn't like being impersonated. He tweeted me earlier today.

The tweet is a Photoshop fake, as I said on my Twitter feed back on the day that it appeared:

https://twitter.com/DanAmri...

@OneOfSwords is my work account where I talk about Activision stuff. The @DanAmrich account is my personal account and it is real, but I do not post about work on it (at least, not intentionally -- sometimes I slip up and RT something from the wrong account). I had @DanAmrich before I started at Activision so I kept it, in case I ever left Activision but they wanted to keep the @OneOfSwords brand.

Also, I am the author of a book about writing on a professional level, so I generally use proper English when I tweet, which the forger did not. That should have been a clue. And hey, it doesn't make a lick of sense that Activision would announce a Call of Duty game through my personal account and not, say, a press release or a story in a major media outlet. C'mon now.

As for why I talk about guitars and my book on my personal account, it's because...it's my personal account. Those are my hobbies and interests. I have a personal blog on my personal website, too. I am more than my job -- aren't you?

But I did not see the point of creating yet another Twitter account just for the book which is admittedly going to be of interest to a small audience, so I just used my existing personal account. Many people have contacted me there with book feedback, and it's worked out fine.

So, TL;DR version: Fake tweet, like I said in December.

@danamrich
Never argued whether the tweet was 'real' or not, just that the twitter account appeared to be real. I wasn't aware of you or your work before stumbling across this story, to be honest - from a cursory glance, having two separate twitter accounts, one all about games, and one not (but only the non-games account being linked to from a video game book's website) struck me as mildly odd.

Anyhow, thanks for the clarification!

Activision won't make a second COD game for the Vita.
They'll just port over the next one from the consoles.
Sanquine90  +   621d ago
I will rather have a port then another declassified :)
GraveLord  +   620d ago
I wish.
majiebeast  +   621d ago
I rather wait for Killzone merc's as my first psvita fps.

@San
I love that your a bounty/mercenary and take jobs for both side's. I hope its a nodge toward a Helghast campaign in Killzone 4, that needs to happen!

Same here, killzone mercenary will be a beast ! GG always deliver awesome games ( Killzone:P )
They have a 4 game recent track record, I wouldn't say they ALWAYS deliver awesome games. Killzone 1 was pretty meh, Liberation was alright, Killzone 2 was reportedly awesome (haven't played it myself) Killzone 3 was good but not awesome.
They make pretty games though.
Sanquine90  +   621d ago
Killzone 1 was the most awesome ps2 game. So , i have to disagree on that one. Killzone liberation was something totally diffirent because it was the first non Fps of the franchise. Killzone 2 was baddass and killzone 3 was also good but the lack of good story was dissapointing. ( And those bloody snipers needed a nerf)

@majiebeast Yeah, i always want a hellghast campaign. To see the story of the other side. But this the same with second world war games . I always like to see the other side >>> Nazi's / Space Nazi's.

When kz for the vita comes out?
Krew_92  +   620d ago
There is no official release date yet, the only thing made official is that it will come out this year.

Although there are always possibilities of games being delayed so we just have to wait for now.
USMC_POLICE  +   620d ago
Cancel it now then they need more dev time.
yazter  +   620d ago
Faker than the author's mom's orgasm.
yazter  +   620d ago
Saw this on his twitter:

Someone has falsified a tweet claiming I sent it from this account. They lied. My Activision news/the truth exists at @OneOfSwords anyway.
porkChop  +   620d ago
Just port CoD4, polish up the graphics and old textures, and you've got yourself both a huge seller and an amazing game. Don't waste time making garbage like Declassified 2. If you're going to make a brand new game then it better be good, gamers won't be fooled a second time after the disaster that was Declassified 1.
nevin1  +   620d ago
it will just be a polished version of declassfied.

or they will port the next cod to Vita.
