We all know that as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, that Activision will release a new Call of Duty game in holiday season 2012 (most probably November), but speculation around what that game will be is now pointing firmly towards a follow-up to 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops.
French site GameBlog
) have recently landed themselves in Acti's bad books for reporting on a pulled product page for Black Ops 2 from the French arm of online retailing giant Amazon.
Adding further support to the theory, Joystiq
have found the same game title listed among the conquests of an artist's resume -- an employee of a studio reportedly contracted by Activision-owned developer Treyarch.
As far as rumours go, this one is look pretty solid, but we'll almost certainly know for certain within the next month or so as annual Call of Duty titles have consistently historically been officially announced in the early months of the year.

This weekend was a free play weekend for mw3. And as a result we saw an substantial amount of hackers. Every second game was occupied with a wall or aim hack.
Due to ranked servers not being dedicated, players were defenseless against these exploits and the only solution was to keep searching or not play at all.
Regardless of your personal opinion on the series it is no fun playing against cheaters.

Not to mention trying to get a server is a laugh. I can't get anything less than 75ping, or at least, it's a rare occurance. It needed to get dedicated servers as it's a joke without it. Not to mention like Timmeh said, hackers are rampant.
I'm looking forward to BO2. But until then, BF3 will still be my fps.

Of course I'm sure this will sell bucket loads just like the previous ones because the game is "trendy" for most casual FPS players.

Badum tish. Modern Warfare 3 was really just a rush to the market as everyone expected it. Hopefully they can improve on the formula, as I absolutely loved Black Ops.
