According to a Twitter
from one of the Treyarch Developers, PCDev, states that mod tools for Treyarch's critically acclaimed Call of Duty: Black Ops should be released in May, with no set date just yet. It was also re-tweeted via community Manager Josh Olin, helping quash it as a rumour. This comes with Treyarch last year stating they would release a mod toolkit, due to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's lack of modding capabilities.
