COD BlackOps 2 World Reveal May 1st?

April 23, 2012 in Black Ops, MultiPlayer, NEWS, Treyarch, Zombies

So the interwebz has been a buzz, especially twitter with this upcoming “World Reveal” of a Call of Duty game on May 1st (During NBA Playoffs). I will explain the “Title” of this article in a moment. So the “tweets” have been saying a reveal of a COD game, which is no surprise, as we have become quite accustom to a Blockbuster release in November by the franchise. Usually preceded by the reveals and teaser starting at or around the May timeframe (you all know E3 is just around the corner) We have also been witness to many “leaks” on BlackOps2 recently, with no “solid” proof. But if you will note the peeps that are the busiest tweeting about the reveal are associated primarily with Treyarch. I’ve pretty much been already sold on what I believe that Black Ops II will be released this November, and these recent tweets by Treyarch peeps are just making that more solid for me. What I did have in question; however, was if Zombies will break off to form it’s own COD series “Call of Dead”. Many of you state “I will not buy BO2 if it doesn’t have zombies with it” but I still think it can stand on it’s own. BUT……I did take note of Kevin Sherwood (Writer of the Zombie songs that Elena Siegman sings) tweeting out about this COD Reveal also, HMmmmmmmm…… Kinda makes you wonder if he may “know” something, Like maybe he has written some more awesome tunes for BO2 Zombies. What do you think?? It even seemed that he kinda got a smack on the hands by Dan Amrich (OneofSwords) from ATVI for his input. (This part is pure speculation on my part BTW, based on the tweets I’ve seen) You can check out the “reveal teaser” at callofduty.com on their front page. I’ve posted a pic of the only thing that can be made out (zoomed in some). Lets also remember that Sledgehammer Games was working on their own COD related game until they were pulled off of it to assist Infinity Ward complete MW3. So technically they may have something in store, but they sure are quiet. My take is that BlackOps2 will be the reveal and it WILL HAVE ZOMBIES :D unless Activision has FINALLY pulled off the biggest twist in the franchise history. I highly doubt it though, because they have to ensure that the shareholders are happy come November with a Blockbuster, and the only Blockbuster they is sure to deliver is BO2. But that is not to say that SHG may have something pop up in the middle of this. So what are your thoughts?? I’m sold on BO2 with Zombies! Do I have any wagers out there, LOL ?? Anyway check the COD website and back here often for future intel, check out the pic below, and follow @codbunker on twitter. Finally watch the NBA Playoffs for goodness sakes! ;)

Black Ops Zombie Jam Time!

April 15, 2012 in Black Ops, Zombies

While playing Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies (if you can make it 20+ rounds) you know sometimes it can be monotonous. One of the BEST things Treyarch/Activision did is employ Kevin Sherwood (song writer) & Elena Siegman (singer) to do the “easter egg” zombie songs. Playing them mid way through an event of a long zombies match is SO COOL and breaks it up. So make sure you “save” the song for when you need a break to just “JAM OUT” with Richtofen or whomever your character is. We got in a match last night (taking break from prestiging in MW3) and these to catz (Devo & Puma) started breaking it down, LOL, so I recorded it, just to show you all that zombies are so rich with fun, and wanted to say a big thanks to Kevin and Elena for adding to that :)

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Coming in 2012???

February 9, 2012 in Black Ops, COD9, Infinity Ward, NEWS, Sledgehammer, Zombies

There WILL BE a Call of Duty game release this year (2012) which to many is NO surprise ;) But the question is what will it be. Activision is a Publicly owned Company (traded on the NASDAQ as ATVI) so it goes without saying, they have to make money to please the shareholders. (SO OF COURSE THERE’S GONNA BE ONE IN 2012 BOBBY!!!) See part of Earnings statement with link to full version at bottom!

Let’s do a little logic and timeline shall we:
2009 MW2 release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)
2010 Black Ops release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)
2011 MW3 release shattered all previous records (ATVI makes lots of $$$)

No in between these timelines we note that Infinity Ward (Modern Warfare Peeps) had lots of “drama”
Sledgehammer Games came along and was invited to the party to create another type of COD.
Then when ATVI realized IW needed help for MW3, SH Games was enlisted to help them (pausing their production)
SOOOOOoooooo Does ATVI go with SH Games Release for 2012 or the “Almost Guaranteed” $$$ maker Black Ops 2.

Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops-II-2

We are still not sure what type of game SHG is working on, but If I was going to put money down in “Vegas” Here is how I would say it plays out (at least near term)

SHG’s game will be mid year release in 2012 or 2013, but not THE MAJOR release since MW and BLOPS are guaranteed money. So I’m suggesting that this year (Nov 6, 2012) COD Black Ops II will be released. I’m not so sure that it will have Zombies though. I think since “Call of the Dead” (which I think will be a new series) was so successful it will stand on it’s own…..possibly, and may be just like my suggestion of SHG’s and be a Mid type year release. So what are you thoughts?
What is coming out this year?
Will SHG have it’s own MAJOR?
Will Call of Dead become it’s OWN title?
Your thoughts…………….
