Treyarch Hiring For ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2?’

3.4
In what will come as likely a shock to nobody, it looks like Treyarch is back at work, hiring programmers for their next Call of Duty title. What may come as a bit of news to fans is that apparently, it looks like the game in question will not be merely another entry into the series, but Black Ops 2, a direct sequel to their best-selling game of all time.That’s according to ThatVideoGameBlog, who are claiming that the latest issue of OPMUK is dropping a sizable number of hints that Treyarch is not only staffing up for their next inevitable CoD title, but that it’s seeming more and more likely that the game will be a direct sequel to Black Ops.

We’ve known that there was a likelihood that a sequel was in the works for some time, with Treyarch posting job openings in March, and a Community Manager confirming that a Black Ops sequel was possible in the studio’s future. The fact of the matter is that Activision and Treyarch would have to be out of their minds to not be planning a sequel to the game, given its record-shattering sales.

But while the game itself is a foregone conclusion, whether it will be a continuation of the first game’s plot or merely give another dose of the cinematic presentation and new mechanics of Black Ops is anyone’s guess. Without a doubt, the biggest surprise in all of this news is just how far off many predictions were in the wake of the Infinity Ward/Activision split.

Some expected that Treyarch – perhaps unfairly known as the makers of ‘inferior’ CoD titles – would absolutely bomb on Black Ops, due to inferior gameplay and fan backlash over Activision’s legal drama with Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward. But the opposite took place, with Treyarch delivering the highest-grossing title in the history of the series, and Modern Warfare 3 grabbing headlines already, even without the studio’s founders on board.


Given the mass exodus of employees from Infinity Ward, and regardless of how you may feel about Activision’s way of doing business, or the quality of Black Ops, the fact is that Treyarch is now the most experienced studio currently working on the Call of Duty brand. And no matter how the games turn out, it is seeming more and more likely that both 2011 and 2012 will be seeing the release of a new CoD installment.

-xBeY- In my opinion all they need to do is go back to the basics, forget all this pro perk and killstreak shite. Make classic 3,5,7 killstreaks, after all the old call of duty's made all the fan base, and now people are just buying it because it is called 'call of Duty'. I know someone will say 'it's not all about multiplayer', but im afraid it is.

I enjoy playing WaW and CoD4 as they have different weapons, diffrent designs and they were SIMPLE. All the new cods are just the same shxt diffrent game.

Also, i enjoy playing waw becuase quickscoping was virtually non-existent and cod4 it was not a problem. BUT, on mw2 is was IMPOSSIBLE to find a S&d game were there was no dumb quickscopers making montages thinking they were called grizz.

An extra point is that on cod4/waw all guns had advantages and disadvantages which made it a fair game but with MW3 there are those guns that are '3in1' in a sense they can snipe, kill in 1 bullet and their general purpose.

Another thing that made me play CoD4 was the private match glitching aspect, chuck old school on and you can get out of nearly every map, elevators etc. Then you go online and they were next to impossible and if you were able to do the glitch the location of them on the map made it pointless.

Sounds sad but i have been playing CoD on console since the 3rd one and they are getting worse every release, and i can assure you that anyone else in my boat would agree.


I totaly agree mate, they only get worse when the companies are trying to hard. When they put to much into the game you lose the good feeling you got in cod4/5 they never gets boring. Black ops got boring after 2-3 months and mw3 will probably follow in its steps.

I can still enjoy a good game of cod 4 and it is still great after beeing out for like 4 years now. its great not for all the extra features the studios put in games now days but for its simpleness


Sorry guys but that's how everything works on this planet. Everything innovates, and if you want all the CoDs to stop doing that (lol even though the Call of Duty franchise hardly innovates at all) then just play [email protected] and CoD4.

Yeah every thing changes but they should jump back to an actual world war based game, afterall it was their original business model. For the likes of NFS they were the underground racing type game that was good, then they started pumping out track day shit. Now from what i have seen from the new NFS it looks more 'old school'. THIS IS WHAT CALL OF DUTY SHOULD DO. IMO they have to do...

Sounds Great, I've always loved Treyarch games. I like the darker and grittier feel they give, compared to IW games.

Playstation Both companies make great games.
Call me stupid, but I think Black Ops look better on my 1080i LCD Phillips TV than MW3.
I just like the dark lighting effects of Black Ops than MW3.
MW3 has great graphics, don't get me wrong.
But Call of Duty has been ruined from the modding and screaming kids on Live.
I played CoD4 and MW2 on PS3 before.
It is kinda the same except there is like 2 or 3 screaming kids, unlike 8 on Live.
But Xbox has a great feature we should all use that is called the Mute Button and Block Communications button.
PS3 has that too I think.
To be honest thats your TV because in my TV (Samsung 42 1080P LCD) MW3 looks alot better than BO same as MW2 and i play with a Monster HDMI.


I think his problem is 1080i ewwww

DeadlyDasher Treyarch > IW.

IW dumbs down their game for the 14 year olds, and makes it too easy for bad players to do good. They also make their games to damn unbalanced. But appearently all those things = a good game for most people.

Cod 4 > WaW > Black Ops > MW2

MW3 hasn't been out long enough to put it anywhere, and if anyone says MW3 is better then any COD game after about 18 days of it being out is ignorant.


Not going to lie, Treyarch is the worst studio game design in the history. They don't know what they're doing.

Can't you understand how crappy graphic is from black ops?

Impossible to kill someone when you're using chopper.

Fail respawn.

Fail guns..

And on....


Lol first of all Treyarch started the cod Franchise with Call of Duty Finest Hour and they will remain the best Studio. Not every game is going to be success but to say ''they don't know what they are doing'' and ''worst studio'' you would have to be a complete and utter ****. If it wasn't for them, you wouldn't be playing COD.

im pretty sure infinity ward is the reason cod is where it is

There is no more infinity ward anymore. After cod 4 west and zampella got fired due to activisions dumb asses. Thats why treyarchs cods are actually more reasonable to deal with and does not send you to the hospital with a broken hand by hitting your xbox.
