Activision had previously registered domains through to BlackOps6.com, but had come unstuck with the Black Ops 2 domain until now. Originally registered back in May 2010 by an anonymous proxy, the domain is now associated with a brand protection company employed by Activision called MarkMonitor.

With last year's Call Of Duty entry handled by Infinity War (in conjunction with Sledgehammer Games), 2012 should see the return of Treyarch. Given the success that Call of Duty: Black Ops enjoyed just over 12 months ago, we wouldn't be surprised to see the sub-brand get a sequel later in the year.
