Let’s all be shocked there’s a new “Call of Duty” game coming out and that it’s a sequel to “Black Ops”. Now that we’ve totally blown your collective minds, let’s shock you even more by telling you this one will be set in the modern day. What a daring new direction!
Seriously, we get that people like the franchise, but breathless analysis of marketing materials for this franchise at this point is ridiculous. It’s like speculating about whether or not there will be another “Madden”, or whether Nintendo will ever put out another Mario game.
Granted, it is nice that this one will at least not run history through the pet food grinder, but that’s not exactly a key selling point.
