Activision hints at near-future setting for Black Ops 2

Call of Duty site teases advanced tech for new shooter

The next Call of Duty game, which is due to be unveiled on May 1 and is widely tipped to be Black Ops 2, may feature a near-future setting.


Activision's latest teaser image on Call of, which you can see to the right, reveals part of a quadrotor RC attack drone.

The image links to a humorous new episode of YouTube show FPS Russian which features the drone. Equipped with a submachine gun and a 100-round magazine, the drone is controlled with a tablet that gives you a birds-eye view of the battlefield.

"The technology in this baby isn't going to be out there for at least another decade," says the show's presenter. "Looks like the future's going to be fun. But if you can't wait another 15 years my friends are telling me that this baby might just be in the next Call of Duty game, which would be the shit."

While it'll be another week before we get concrete details on Treyarch's Black Ops follow-up, the internet is starting to heat up with rumours.

The safe money is on the game being Black Ops 2, although recent speculation based on supposedly leaked retailer merchandising suggests 'Eclipse' may also feature in the title. It's also rumoured to be set for release on November 13, the second Tuesday of the month and a day when a total solar eclipse will take place.

Activision attempted to delete a long list of potential Black Ops 2 multiplayer details from the CoD forums back in March, and further unverified MP details emerged yesterday.
