The Black Ops 2 release rumors show no sign of slowing down and over the weekend we may have had the clearest indication that the game is officially on the way. An image has allegedly been uncovered from the Call of Duty website, showing a solid release date for its world premiere reveal.
Like all previous Black Ops 2 rumors before it, Activision has already swooped and deleted the image in question so you can no longer see it. If you’re interested though and of course you will be – you can view the image again over at TheSixthAxis here. The logo is nothing too fancy, but the obvious highlight is a reveal date of April 28th 2012 – almost two years exactly to the date that Activision unveiled the first Black Ops game.
Does this mean that we are going to be treated to a world premiere gameplay trailer on this date as well, or will Activision just reveal the game’s existence first and foremost? It seems like Black Ops 2 is the worse kept secret in the gaming industry at the moment, but that doesn’t mean to say that the anticipation for a sequel will decrease, since there is a general belief amongst many gamers that Treyarch’s Black Ops remains the best Call of Duty in recent years after an ‘arguably’ disappointing Modern Warfare 3 game from Infinity Ward.
Just to recap, this information has come from previous intel posted on the official Black Ops which suggested that Activision will release the game on November 6th. Both sets of information have now been deleted though by Activision, so you have to presume that they are just trying to prolong this for as long as possible.
What can we expect to see in the new game, more of the same from MW3, or a continuation of Zombies and the addictive Wager Match modes? For us, these were the best aspects of the game in our opinion that kept Treyarch’s game unique compared to Modern Warfare, so we just hope that they are adventurous with the game and take the game in a brand new direction that the franchise badly needs.
What are you expecting from Black Ops 2 this year?
