Despite the drama surrounding Infinity Ward lately, the Call of Duty series is alive and well. Today in a press release Activision unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops, a new chapter in the long-running franchise. Treyarch will be taking the reins for development of Black Ops after having previously developed Call of Duty: World at War. Not much has been detailed about gameplay, but reportedly Black Ops will take the player “behind enemy lines”.
“We can’t wait for our community to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for Treyarch. “We have focused our entire studio on this game, with dedicated multiplayer, single-player and co-op teams creating the most intense, gripping and riveting experience possible for our fans on all fronts.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops is slated for a November 9 release date. Further details will develop at the website.
