I hope they add more customization to this game like in Black Ops. In the first one, your able to customize your own emblems and face paint. In tis one, I hope they add armor customization. Sort of somewhere in the range of Halos armor customization. If they do, Ill be on this game non-stop.
Latest Call of Duty title currently in development at Treyarch with 250 studio employees and 50 contractors and testers.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is being built by 300 people, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia told VentureBeat recently. Of the 300 working on the game, 250 are Treyarch employees, with the remainder contractors and test teams.
Black Ops II was officially announced last night after months of speculation. It is due out on November 13 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC and is the follow-up to 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops, which remains the best-selling Call of Duty game to date at more than 25 million units sold.
Black Ops II will feature a campaign split in two. One half of the adventure will pick up immediately following the events of the original Black Ops, with players following the journey of Frank Woods. The other half of the campaign begins in the year 2025, a time when advanced weapon technologies rule supreme.

At least with this game it will work on the first day, no long frequent downloads, not require that much internet connectivity demand, new multiplayer game modes, and at least i can expect that i can take down someone in hard core more easily than unloading 30 clips and not drop an enemy up close in BF3. Time to buy pure american made video games not foreign.
i smell layoffs coming after the smoke clears and the dust settles and the game is finalized and fully launched
If I had a dollar for every "copy and paste" comment on this article, I would.....I dunno, have enough money to buy a used copy of MW3?
I enjoyed the MW3 campaign very much even though it was pretty short. Black Ops was okay. But now the "somehow-miraculously-surviving" cliche of Woods? Come on.
Treyarch has been so great at keeping it's releases varied, it was WWII to The Cold War to The Future. As compared to Infinity Ward who made a great game with Modern Warfare, then they just copied and pasted it twice. Treyarch is undeniably the one keeping the series alive.
Really excited for this one, but let me just say this now before I forget. If Infinity Ward starts development on a Modern Warfare 4, I will personally kick all of the IW employees in the balls.
They will all be fired after the game is released. Its a typical douchebag move publishers do these days.
Also, who would even trust Activision as their employer? Remember West and Zampella, you know, the guys who MADE COD and then got their own work stolen from them? Marking this comment as spam won't change facts. Go support West and Zampella's new gaming company, RESPAWN.
@MindwalkerX I think the whole team is really composed of 50 people, including devs and testers. The remaining 250 make the marketing team.
So Far...i would like to play the campaign mode only,could careless for multiplayer but it got my attention from someone that doesn't really like cod
i have seen so many peoples bashing on this game , since the release of the trailer yesterday . i don't even know why certain peoples are comparing this game with halo cause it looks futuristic . peoples are always complaining the COD is always the same . well to me it look different and ill give it a try before i judge the developers of the game. the only thing that i enjoy from Treyarch is zombies .
@MindwalkerX I equally love and hate your comment because I was scrolling down to write the exact same thing before I read your comment lol
@johnson206 - could not agree more, if you play MW for a little while and switch right over to black ops it feels like it's in slow-mo
