Call of Duty 7: Black Ops.

Let the countdown begin!

Call of Duty 7 Unveiled As 'Black Ops'

Matt Peckham Matt Peckham Fri Apr 30, 10:56 am ET

In a short but sweet reveal, game developer Treyarch cracked the lid on the seventh Call of Duty title, dubbing it Black Ops and teasing a release date of November 9, 2010. Expectations were that Activision would reveal the game's title tonight on SpikeTV, but the game dev opted to lead early with the title and launch date this morning.

In the World's Shortest Blog Post, Treyarch writes "We at Treyarch are excited to reveal our latest development--Call of Duty: Black Ops! Be sure to head over to as more details begin to unfold! Follow @JD_2020 and @Treyarch on Twitter for the latest news & discussions regarding Black Ops."

I guess we're still on for tonight's teaser trailer, airing at 12:40 a.m. (time zone unspecified) according to Treyarch's debut Twitter status update 20 hours ago.

What of the name? Well for starters, Black Ops doesn't sound very World War II. Alternate Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward's two biggest revenue rainmakers--Modern Warfare and its recent sequel--take place in contemporary settings. It stands to reasons Treyarch wants in on that action, and with terrorism the watchword in the U.S. these days, you can already imagine the potential settings, from Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, or the Balkans to Venezuela, Colombia, Angola, or Zimbabwe, and various hot spots in the Middle East.

I played WaW's single player and enjoyed it. My brother said I should borrow MW2 some time because the FP isn't worth buying it. I hope some sort of focus goes back toward a FP campaign and not so heavily reliant on MP. This one sounds like it has a lot of potential subject matter for a FP game. Wouldn't mind going to Africa to cause some mayhem. Somalia or Zimbabwe.

I know there was a lot of speculation on it being subtitled "Viet Nam" or "Cold War". I wonder if Treyarch is going to break the timeline barrier and make a modern game. If so, then it's something that must have been planned even before IW went down the tubes.

If they stick to the pre-Viet Nam ear, I could still imagine being a spy and trying to escape from a Bay of Pigs defeat, Sniping along the East/West Berlin border, Infiltrating a Soviet base in search of militray secrets a la "Cliffhanger" in MW2, etc.
