More infos and rumors about Call of Duty 7 appear on the net. According to a mysterious Activision insider, the new Call of Duty 7 will be called “Black Ops” and yes, it will have Zombies! (no kidding)
The insider states that Call of Duty Black Ops will not only play during the Vietnam war, instead it will lead the player through history and nearly all major wars (Cold War, WW2, Vietnam, Cuba, SAS, etc.) up until today and beyond. He also claims that Call of Duty 7 Black Ops will have zombies: The zombie mode from World at War will be included. Another thing he noted is that Call of Duty 7 will bring back dedicated servers.
Why I believe that this is all made up?
The characters of Call of Duty 7 (names and background story revealed during a LA casting call) are:
- Frank Barnes [part of an elite Vietnam unit (SOG)]
- Joseph Lewis
- Jason Hudson
- Kristina Ivanova
Are they really the Black Ops? The leaked news do not fit to the background story of Frank Barnes for example. It doesn’t make sense at all, unless the Black Ops could time-travel. How could they possibly combine the characters of the casting call and the World War II? Impossible, that’s why I don’t believe the “insider”.
Only yesterday an internal sheet handed to online retailer GAME.co.uk revealed the release date for Call of Duty Black Ops, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this “leak” was intended to create a little hype for the next Call of Duty.
If CoD Black Ops would really lead us through some of major wars, that would also dramatically increase the weapon list of black ops.
