The Countdown to Black Ops 2 pt.1: Black Ops 2: Signs point to near-future setting
Activision could be preparing to shock the Call of Duty world with a shock announcement next week – a near-future setting for the title currently known as Black Ops 2.
The hint comes from tongue-in-cheek YouTube show FPS Russian. The latest episode demos a quadrotor RC attack drone that bears more than a little resemblance to a quadrotor pictured in one of Activision’s Call of Duty teaser pics yesterday.
“Technology in this baby isn’t going to be out there for at least another decade,” the presenter is keen to press. “This is truly a weapon of the future.”
He adds: “If you can’t wait 10-15 years my sources tell me that this beauty might be in the next Call of Duty game.”
And the real kicker – the video signs off with the following message: “A big thank you to the makers of Call of Duty for sponsoring this video.”
Just in case you’re wondering – yes, the footage in the video is fake.
The gun pictured on the callofduty site and in the video(which I'll add later today) is a 'Prototype Quadrotor with Machine Gun'.
A Quadrotor is (as its name would imply) a mini helicopter/drone with four rotors, and if it plays half as well as it looks in the video then gamers are in for a treat. The portable chopper touts a sub machine gun with a 100 round magazine, and if it’s finished serving its purpose on the battlefield then it can self-destruct.
