Retail Evidence Shows Black Ops 2 Is Set For November

It hasn't been officially announced yet, but this isn't the first time we've found evidence indicating a Call of Duty: Black Ops sequel.

This time it's Spanish retailer Fnac, which clearly shows "Black Ops 2" will land on retail shelves in November. If true, the title and the date won't surprise anyone.

Activision has gone so far as to confirm a new CoD installment for 2012 - again, no huge shock - but the company has yet to announce the game. It's likely that developer Treyarch is indeed working on a sequel to the record-breaking Black Ops, which released in November of 2010. Last year's Modern Warfare 3 broke those records again so it's sort of like a "oh yeah, top this" game between designers. By the way, we've had a new CoD title every year since 2003. But we're not tired yet, right? ...right?

Recently, Amazon France had a listing for Black Ops 2 as well, so it seems Activision can't keep European retailers from leaking the news. But that's okay; we imagine millions will go nuts when the official reveal goes live. That'll probably be this month, by the way.

Activision is one lucky developer. They got a game that tens of millions play consistently, and every year they are breaking records. The other thing that's consistent unfortunately is their game engine. Who wouldn't want that???

And with the new added Elite service, which I think many have already went for the paid version, they're banking in even more. It's crazy. I don't want to hate on them, but with a budget like that, I do hate them for not being more revolutionizing with their engine. It's like riding off of your money and no loyalty back. It makes you think of all the more deserving dev. teams out there. Again, I'm not hating on their success, just their actions.

Activision have become the new M$ of gaming.

COD is so popular it has become a secondary operating system for most computers and consoles... we await the infection to spread to the Vita and WiiU too I would imagine...

Shame on the gaming world!

Activision is probably going to have one of its biggest years yet in 2012. Between this, Diablo 3, a follow up to CoD:Elite, and a new Skylanders game, I'd bet that they make plenty shareholders happy by the end of the year.

That will be something, if the tables turn this year. Reserving my time when I visit friends and family.

I'm not crazy about any of the Call of Duty games, but at least Black Ops has some cool Cold War iconography and intrigue going on. Strongly prefer it over the modern warfare games.

Agreed, I'm becoming less of an IW fan and more of a Treyarch fan. But CoD is starting to lose it's appeal to me more and more as time goes by. I've been playing a lot of BF3 though, I'm a colonel 8 star, if memory serves I think I'm close to 9.

So.. BLOPS 2? Yippee-kai-yay. (Not)
It will still sell by the shed load though. So long as we have 12 year olds asking their mummies (who don't care about the age restriction !) to buy it for them.
Oh, look... (it's so crap that we had to include) zombie mode again... (yawn).
For the sake of the creative credibility of the gaming industry, I hope the CoD bubble bursts sooner rather than later.

I sat here for a while trying to find the right words, but then I realized no matter what i say the sheep of the world will always follow each other.

Call of Duty needs to Call it Quits, or give us something fresh.

why does it need to be 'fresh' - and why am i a 'sheep' for buying something I still really enjoy playing? maybe i should stop enjoying it so i can be cool like you

lol

cod will continue to prevail - because quite simply - its the most fun game out there - sales figures don't lie - and people dont spend $60 'just because'. someday something better will come out - but it hasn't yet

I really enjoyed Black Ops - just hope this time around the PS3 gets shown a little more love and the performance problems aren't there.

I'll be buying in Nov.
