A counter has appeared on callofduty.com, promising a ‘World Reveal’ of the next in the Call of Duty series. They’re a bit slow on that front, as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was pretty much ‘revealed’
There’s not much doubt that this is Black Ops 2, because the source code for the callofduty.com site includes a 2012 copyright claim for ‘Black Ops’. Photographs of an alleged press kit have also been circulating, showing the next installment to be a Treyarch-developed sequel to Black Ops.
1 May is the big reveal date, with a teaser trailer (oh boy, more non-info) set to air on the TNT channel during basketball playoffs over in Americaland.
Honestly, I don’t think contemporary publicity teams are trying hard enough. Sure, this is a reveal of … a forthcoming reveal (which in itself will just be a teaser), but I think there’s a whole other level of meta-hype that’s not yet been explored. Let’s really go for it next year and try for a reveal of a reveal of a reveal.
