Confirming months of rumours, Activision has finally announced the very-expected Call of Duty: Black Ops II, a sequel to Treyarch's last cold war-era outing that will this time take the action to a near-future 2025 setting.

Also as expected, the official release date for what is an annual series anyway is November 13th 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Watch the debut trailer below (or here in our HD video library) and stay tuned for many more details on the next Call of Duty experience later today.

Lol, i thought IW was meant to be modern warfare and Treyarch was meant to be oldschool warfare not future warfare.

It might share the Call of Duty name but everything Treyarch touches turns to...whats something worse than s***?

Would be great if they bothered to use a different engine but I would imagine Activision is pulling the purse strings and its cheaper to go with the tech they got to maximise profits. I agree the series should have ended or other developers should have had a go with the IP. I prefer Treyarch over InfinityWard too.

After watching that trailer again anyone else think of Command & Conquer Tiberiam Wars?
Posted 03:37pm 02/5/12
probably half the people that say it looks s*** will be in the purchase line at the midnight launches.

This is QGL. Surely not. Maybe if this was the 'epic pr0 xbox aus pwnage' forum that would be the case.

are retarded?
Black Ops was way better then mw2 and mw3.
W@W was an improvement of COD4 not a sideways step like mw2 to mw3.

But this does look like s***.
Posted 05:03pm 02/5/12
Yeah, i didnt see any reason for the treyarch hate. I thought both COD5 and Blops were more enjoyable than their predecessor in terms of SP. Blops MP sucked but we all know that and IMO COD5 MP was better than COD4 but thats because i preferred the old school weapons, bigger maps and dogs instead of choppers (f*** the tank noobs though).

I remember the L4D2 boycott group.

Hell yeah, that downfall map was f*****g awesome. Also airfield, cliffside, seelow. I was either a m1garand with scope sniper or a mad bunnyhopping mp40 flanker. Best multiplayer of my life.

Nope. same old proprietary engine they and Infinity Ward (and now Sledgehammer and Raven) been slapping new coats of paint on (in fairness, obviously rewriting huge chunks of) since 2003, It's actually originally id Tech 3 based.

In World at War, they called it IW3.0, in MW2, they called it IW4.0, in MW3, they called it "The MW3 engine", but it's all just an evolution of the same tech that they share between Activision-owned studios.
