Call of Duty: Black Ops - It's official

Official name of new CoD sneaks out ahead of trailer

It's official: The new Call Of Duty will be called Black Ops and will be released on November 9th.

The Activision website for the title - the seventh in the series - went live earlier today.

The confirmation of the Black Ops name seems to suggest that previous speculation about the title is true.

According to the original story that revealed the Black Ops name, the Treyarch-developed game will be set throughout the Cold War, and will feature key battles from across the period.


It will reportedly heavily feature segments from the Vietnam conflict - and culminate in the famous 1980 storming of the Iranian Embassy in London by the SAS.

CVG revealed earlier this year that the Call Of Duty Black Ops UK release date will arrive in November.

The first trailer for the game is due to go live later today - CVG understands 2am GMT is launch time.

Despite a huge amount of hype, Activsion doesn't believe the title will be quite as big as last year's mammoth Modern Warfare 2.

Treyarch has revealed that Call Of Duty: Black Ops will have custom killstreaks, but little else has been confirmed.
