[UPDATE] Activision has now officially announced Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

The original story is below.

Activision on Thursday released a teaser trailer for this year's Call of Duty game, which is in development at Black Ops creator Treyarch Studios. The video is titled "Back in Black" and strongly suggests that--as suspected--this year's game will be Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II was released in 2012 for consoles and PC.

The cryptic video, which includes a number of voices and references to Alex Mason from Black Ops II, ends by teasing that Activision will reveal the game in full on Sunday, April 26. This is slightly ahead of schedule for Activision, as the publisher historically has waited until May to reveal new Call of Duty games.
