Call of Duty – Black Ops 2: This Year’s Rollout to be Revealed on May 1
What do car companies and Activision, the publisher of the highly popular fps series Call of Duty, have in common? They both have perfected the concept of the annual model. Cars are released on an annual model. Each year brings a “new” car even though there are very little, if any changes, from one year to another.
Critics of Activision are saying that its very popular and commercially lucrative first-person shooter series Call of Duty is released year after year after year with really very little substantive graphic or technical or game play improvements to justify annual releases. Some fans bristle at the idea of gamers being “milked” by an annual roll out model. There was a lot of heat regarding this when Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3 went head to head with EA’s Battlefield 3 last year. Now, that that fps drama has died down a bit, fans can now refocus on the next Call of Duty. There has been a lot of speculation that the next title will be a sequel to Black Ops, a record selling COD release. How did fans get to this conclusion? A member of Neo GAF showed that the Black Ops trademark is inside the Call of Duty’s HTML code. It’s not hard to spot actually. Line 25 if you care to look.
Well, if you are a COD fan, you won’t have to wonder anymore. Activision is going to announce the details of this year’s COD roll out come May 1. The announcement will take place during the NBA playoffs at TNT cable channel.
