Default Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Quote:
IGN reports that Activision has purchased blackops2.com, which could be an indication that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is on the table. Fusible notes that the domain is owned by MarkMonitor, a company that secures domains for Fortune 100 companies, such as Activision. It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but give than Black Ops sold over 14 million copies, it's certainly a possibility.

David Vondahaar ( Game Design Director @Treyarch ) has been tweeting quite a lot recently, chasing after feedback from the community regarding what they'd like to see. They are definitely working on something. Will it be Black Ops 2? Time will tell.

This little puppy would love to see it Treyarch really redeemed themselves with Black Ops (IMHO)

Treyarch provided us with dedis in Black Ops. IW have let us down. Or more precisely, IW with Robert Bowling.

It will have to be awfully good for me to play COD ever again.

Massive distrust for this franchise on PC. Would have to see if they're going to do anything in an attempt to lure me back before I'd even consider another COD title. Dedicated servers are an absolute minimum.

Slapping another coat of paint on and changing the names of the perks won't do it..

Hugo Beyer has worked on some major titles over the years (Beatles Rock Band, Anno 1404), including some still unreleased ones (Doom 4, Aliens: Colonial Marines), at a variety of studios (Terminal Reality, Liquid Development). What stands out to us, however, is his current work with Nerve Software on what he refers to as "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2," as seen on his public LinkedIn page.

Update: Mr. Beyer (or someone on his behalf) has taken down his LinkedIn page, it would seem. We've still yet to receive responses to comment requests from him, or Nerve Software, or Activision.

I'd like to see COD change it up a little bit. Adding a "2" or "3" every other year to Black Ops/Modern Warfare feels a little stale.

I'll be watching this to see if they do even a little bit of innovation.

I find the "out of game" menu screens to be the worst in both the Black ops and MW series.
Ever notice there is a huge lag when scrolling down the screen or when selecting an item. It is so slow that sometimes that when you select an item it clicks on something 1-3 items above as it is still trying to keep up with it all.

Ditto to the dedicated ranked server issue with MW.

Finally the DLC is very deceptive with regards value for money.

Default Call of Duty Black Ops 2 News

Hi all,

News is slowly leaking out in regards to Black Ops 2, I came across this today to get the BO2 news happening.

On March 28th details were apparently leaked on Activisions forums which have since been taken down so of course none of this is 'official' news.

Leaked Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Information

This year, Call of Duty will return with it’s ninth installment with Black Ops 2. As expected it will be following Treyarch’s previous game Black Ops. It’s release date is set for the 6th of November.

Game Modes

Escort, a new game mode similar to Search and Destroy however a live player must be escorted to one of three areas (or two depending on the map) without being killed. The match will have rounds, consisting of one life only.
Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return
Team Defender and Infected will not return

Pointstreaks

Will follow from Modern Warfare 3′s system
Larger emphasis on objectives
A bomb plant is worth 2 points
A neutral flag is worth 1, however an enemy flag is worth 2
flag assist capture is worth 1, a capture is worth 2
The Specialist Pointstreak has be modified. 2 kills now gets you 1 perk. The 4th kill gets you 2 more perks. The 6th kill gets you 3 more perks. The 8th Kill gets you 4 more perks. You do not get every perk when you reach 8 kills. Perks only become “Pro” when you have them Pro
RC XD will not return
Heat vision is a new Pointstreak reward. When you get the required points, you can activate this Pointstreak and your player pulls out a scope and attaches it to your weapon. This scopes main advantage is it’s ability to detect enemies through most walls. Note, the scope can only be attached to primaries not including shotguns
Item Packages requires 5 points. Fall along side care packages and air drop traps. Features a list of package items only including ammo, mini gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, and body armor

Prestiges

There will be 15 prestiges
There will be 50 ranks
Every two prestiges there is a 5 rank increase
The final prestige has 90 levels

ELITE 2.0

ELITE is being fully incorporated into Black Ops 2
Combat record has been modified and re-named as ELITE Stats
There will be a specific lobby for clan matches (new way of leveling clans)
Clan Tournaments can now be implemented

Removed

No MOAB or Nuke
No last stand
No death streaks
No flame thrower attachment

Map Design

Map design and size will be following Black Ops not Modern Warfare 3

Sniper Rifles

Improved sniper rifle usage.
No aim assist for any sniper rifle.
Less sway

Customization

No longer just perk 1 chooses the players appearance
Appearance is a combination of all perks and type of Pointstreak being used.

Hardcore

Larger emphasis on hardcore than ever before
No grenade launchers
Only vehicle guided rocket launchers permitted
Respawn timings decreased (for most modes)
1 bullet in the foot will no longer kill a person, a head or chest shot is usually required.
A person will now bleed out if severely injured.

Perk System 2.0

The Perk Pro system has been upgraded
There is now 2 options a perk can advance to.
Both require different challenges to unlock
Once the desired Pro version is unlocked, the player can select that as their “Perk Pro”.
Once selected, the only way to choose the other option is by entering prestige mode.
For example Perk slot 1 has the perk called Speed
Speed – Reduces the time taken to aim down the sight. Pro I – Swaps weapons faster. Pro II – Throws equipment faster

Combat Training

Will be returning with vast improvements.
Difficulty is no longer based on how long the bots take to start shooting.
Bots now have an advance AI system
Similar to the behavior seen in the MW3 Spec Ops survival
