Rumor: Black Ops 2 Outed by Amazon

An early listing on Amazon points to a sequel to Black Ops this year.

It's looking likely that this year's Call of Duty effort might be a follow-up to 2010's Black Ops, if a posting on the French version of Amazon is to be believed.

Gaming site GameBlog was quick to pick up on the Black Ops 2 listing on Amazon before it was pulled from the site. According to GameBlog, Activision approached the gaming blog shortly thereafter, asking the site to delete their post about Amazon's early listing. When GameBlog refused, Activision apparently told them "not to present themselves" at an upcoming Transformers: Fall for Cybertron event. 

First and foremost, all of this has to be taken with a grain of salt. That goes for both the "confirmation" that this year's Call of Duty is Black Ops 2, as well as Activision throwing down the ban hammer on GameBlog for reporting on it. We honestly don't know what's truth and what isn't. 

With that said, we do know Activision plans to release another Call of Duty title this year. We also know that it's developer Treyarch's turn to get back on the merry-go-round, making a sequel to Black Ops a distinct possibility. 

We'll be more back with more on this story when it happens.
