Activision's official Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 website says the game will propel “players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare.”
Can't see this going down too well with BO fans..
So Modern Warfare 4?
Nope. Homefront 2
Sounds like COD:Future Soldier to me.
A screenshot. Stuff is on fire, and there are guns. This is CoD alright.
Will be interesting to see how this sells compared to the original Black Ops and MW3; and even the new Medal of Honor. I don't think too much innovation will be on offer.
If it is fun it will sale. This works for every game. Black ops is still selling and still being played after two years. Constantly in the number two or 3 slot for Xbox Live games. Pretty sure that is the case on the PS3. Innovation isn't the key to this game selling. If it has the same engine that isn't going to affect the sakes of the game. It may affect YOU individually on your personal taste. But most buy it because it is fun. Got love every year the same stuff gets said over and over about this series.
zombies is the reason i play BO nothing more nothing less
Lots of games lack innovation even the ones we praise the most, innovation is not a reason I buy or play a game. I still play Black Ops from time to time and it's the only COD game i'll play. I HATE mw3 and regret buying it. COD is a game I both hate and enjoy I think the game should play like black ops but we need more game modes,maps,weapons,less lag,bigger maps with longer time limit.. actually the ability to host a match and customize it like for example "dual Hand guns only CTF" were your points count unlike a private match
This is really getting old, I say 3 more years of this and COD takes the route of Guitar Hero.
You really think they are going to put guitars in COD ? :-) Oh well, if they give us a Vietnam setting, I'll be happy to play that 60's music at evening when recovering in base camp.
The next gen consoles will most likely be out already. Then all the CoD "same rehash garbage" will reset itself :).
This! theyll probably come out with something new and good on a new shiny engine or pick up one of this gen's higher quality ones and stick to it for all eternity. Really wish they'd at least update the movements and gestures.. i forget the word for those but whatever. Theyre getting pretty ugly nowadays.
The exact same thing will happen with this as every other CoD game in the last 4 years, everyone will say I won't buy it" but eventually will.
Double Meh.. I agree with MAJ0R it really is only a matter of time before it takes the route of guitar hero, I mean really a game EVERY year.. this isn't like madden or any other sports game, we really don't need another Cod game every year.. BUT still people will eat it up for the time being, until they finally had enough, I know I have
It looks kind of interesting though. The cities, architecture and whatnot depicted do look like this is going to take place in the later half of the 21st century. At least they are changing things up a little bit and will have some interesting weapons probably. Sure, it's the same game that we've played time and time again, and I'm not that excited for it. But I will give it a chance and play it.
i'll wait until *fingers crossed* when they make a MW4
you kidding me bro?
Good luck getting any love around here with a username and avatar like that! On this site, most CoD fans are in the closet for fear of ridicule.. not you my friend, not you!
man MW3 as a disgrace for the Modern Warfare name, it lacked the magic of MW1 and MW2, Level design, music, atmosphere felt kinda lifeless, dull and uninspired, gfx in MW2 are better, hell even the menus look lifeless
I admire your bravery coming into this site with Call of Duty written all over you. Because of the reason that you like/love Call Of Duty, you will be seen as a troll and probably marked down to 1 bubble in no time! Its a shame though. But these/we people are just the minority of gaming.
Not if i have anything to say about it! MW3_KILLSHOT12, +bubble vote for... bravery?
The thing about Call of Duty is that they always aim for November, which makes me think they run on too tight of a schedule. No wonder most CoD's feel rushed or unfinished. Its never: "No no Treyarch. No No Infinity Ward. Take your time."
Well, they do have two years and they don't have to do many tweaks to the engine.
They don't even start on the next game until the engine the others have worked on goes final though. I'd say it has closer to a 13 month development time. Not 2 years.
People hating and commenting only means one thing. You guys are still interested in it.
Bingo. Amazing how people have more time to complain about something they don't like more than what they are actually interested in the first place.
I'm more interested in its demise.
it means you are just butthurt cause it smashed all your games(in your subconscious mind) even if u deny it believe me it's the truth
"it smashed all your games" Not really, unless you mean the games that were ruined in the name of catering to the Casuals of Duty masses. I don't care if it dies or keeps going, but it does mystify me that so many buy it every year. I haven't bought one since [email protected], but I was thinking about getting Blops2 just for zombie mode until I saw the reveal video. Now I may not bother.
Of course we're interested in COD. COD is ruining the industry for the rest of us consumers. CoD popularized overpricing DLC, annual rehashing, over-casualizing gameplay, abandoning innovation etc.
Rampaged Death I was just about to put the same thing. The one thing I want to know is how far will the dates between this and Halo 4 be because if they are close I wonder who will sell more on the 360?
Black Ops was my favorite COD since COD4. I skipped MW3 but I'll likely pick this one up up.
Yeah, Black Ops SP was actually pretty decent. I liked the old school weapons & the whole indoctrinated storyline. COD4 is still hand down the best in the series! MW2 & 3 are cabbage in comparison.
CoD2 says hi.
COD2 says hi? That's nice. COD4 was still better.
Really disappointed :( should have seen this coming. Need new engine dammit! Well I wont judge it completely yet. Treyarch, surprise me!
BlOPS looked worse than MW2, I wouldn't get your hopes up.
Sounds interesting. This is at least something new for Call of Duty fans. Let's wait and see what other details we can get.
Woaaa Sounds like a Dream, Def GOTY 2012
Casual/Arcade Shooter of the Year maybe.
and so will other millions of people from different countries.
Well personally it's a breath of fresh air to me if they are going futuristic. I wasn't even going to purchase this game if they didn't go a different route. Now, I'm intrigued.
SO MW4 disguised as black ops 2?!? WHich actally stands for MW=money wasted.
This game is a response to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier with what's in the screenshots...
exaclty what i was thinking! I bet there will be active camo ("invisibility cloak") too, because in the interactive trailer on callofduty.com, they reference it multiple times (although it is on tanks). Maybe we get to use ative camo on the sniper mission? I wouldn't doubt it.
Why are people quick to say they are getting this for zombies? Treyarch fucked that up too in Black ops, it was much better in WaW And this game is not a response to Ghost Recon or Halo. Activision is trying to beat Respawn Entertainment to the punch of the future setting because it was them that were supposed to take CoD into the future before they all left Infinity Ward. Respawns team is sick. They have all the top talent from COD4 and MW2, as well as a bunhc of new devs that worked on GoD of War, Socom and other big titles in the past.
will be an interesting game...and will sell like hotcakes and make Activision a boatload of money...that being said i have a few comments.. 1. I will buy it. Im sure the campaign will be fun, you need to take CoD games for what they are...interactive Summer Blockbuster movies...don't expect academy award level acting or character development and just enjoy them for what they are...fun... 2. those calling for a new engine...That just doesnt make ANY sense for a bunch of reasons A. It is just NOT cost effective at this point. With next gen consoles on the horizon it makes no sense to scrap an engine NOW when you will have to make one for the next gen consoles soon. B. CoD games are more focused on the engine's PERFORMANCE rather than its visual prowess. It is VERY difficult to make a game that even looks as good as this gen's CoD games while maintaining a solid 60fps frame rate...There is a reason games like Battlefield, Killzone, Uncharted, or even Halo Reach are rendered at 30fps...the added strain on current gen hardware of rendering each frame TWICE as fast just doesnt allow for the visuals to be improved that significantly...not to mention that from CoD4 to MW3 there have been very significant updates to the engine that everyone just ignores..
Would of made sense after COD [email protected] but then again that would mean no COD for 2 years minimum and no 100 million for 2 Novembers in a row. Tell your dad Bobby he's a money hungry SOB when u see him at dinner.
There wasn't another CoD after WaW from Treyarch for another 2 years. Which was Black Ops. So what are you saying? Infinity Wards doesn't count since they make their own game. You acting as if they only have a 1 year development cycle and both games are made by one team.
@artdafoo wow, so because im able to look at the situation from a rational angle unlike you...im automatically some CoD fanboy?!...sad.. it didnt make sense at all after [email protected] many game series swap complete game engines in the middle of a console generation? Especially when youre talking about in-house engines, and not things like Unreal... @Cosmit IW's games do count because both Treyarch and IW's games are based off the same engine...all games since CoD4 run on tweaked versions of that engine
MW3.5. Just like I said before...
always the same old Call of Duty, every year the same stuff. Not saying I hate it but changes need to be made.
Oh yeah of course, because the whizz bang gigantic set-piece driven warfare exemplified by the COD series are exactly what happens during a cold war. :/
Ooooh wow ! the same ol' COD engine with a not too distant future paint job ! I will give Treyarch probs for taking a big step forward as far as when this thing takes place, too bad it will still feel like the same old thing, lol, I bet the damn guns will still sound the same. I don't see this one doing good for two reasons, same old engine as stated before and I think they're going too far into the future. They should have gone the Ghost Recon style of future.
I'll wait until battlefield 2143.
Agree with Hufandpuf there!
your IP is blocked
Not sure what to expect...
Look at all these butthurt trolls! Amazing how many people have no life.
if its anything like the first blops no thanks. the guns were trash and connection was god awful, at least the mw games feel good when you play them. You actually feel confident that your gun will kill someone lol.
What is next? A Halo, Assassin's Creed and Madden this year?
Doing the Modern Warfare 2 treatment. Yawn, same old same old. I have yet to be impressed by any Teyarch game and I've played them all. The MP maps alone are worthless, they need to take notes from Sledgehammer. It's like they can't decide to do a modern game, or stick to the past. They will attempt to juggle both and end up looking like a 1980s version of MW2. Been there done that.
