It sounds like Call of Duty: Black Ops III will freeze out the Cold War roots at the centre of Treyarch's sub-series, taking the futuristic elements of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and running with them. A leaked blurb discovered on the franchise's official website reveals that the forthcoming sequel will take place in a "dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology that we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare". So, it's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, then.
The blurb confirms that the game will release on next-gen hardware, so the PlayStation 4 is a certainty – but you should probably expect a PlayStation 3 version as well. It also mentions zombies, which has been a mainstay in Treyarch's titles for a while now. The summary concludes: "[Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be] the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever." The early Activision advertising campaign certainly suggests that the publisher's going for the throat this time out. And seeing as Treyarch is considered the series' A-team these days, we're starting to feel the hype a little bit.

Seeing as Treyarch does the best survival mode out of all the COD's ,aka Zombies, I am looking forwards to seeing what thay have done this time around with Zombies.
Sounds original. lol
Also what is with the phrase "most ambitious ever" getting thrown around so much? I get the feeling they'll say it for the next few years.
Meaning theyll change all the perk names and make the campaign 3 hours 30 instead of just 3.
Ultimately its exactly the same.
If they go down the kind of route Unity did, obviously the massive gameplay changes and not the bugs before some tool chimes in, I might try this.
Deja Vu anyone?
I know everyone loves to hate a yearly release but I just love black ops and will be definitely picking this up usually an anniversary present from my wife lucky day to get married for me lol
Go back to the world wars please!! There was a time you couldn't move for world war related fps. I'm bored of these futuristic titles, lets go back to move forward.
Is this going to be a FPS?
@Bad-MuthaAdebisi its an action jrpg i think
Black Ops 1 was fantastic in my opinion. BO2 was f'ing terrible. Cant see how they could make it worse. Well....unless they made it like MW2/3/Ghosts
I heard it was current gen only.
I'm a bit disappointed to see that it's yet another futuristic shooter; I was hoping it'd take place during WWI, WWII, or the Vietnam War. I'm not going to write it off until I see some gameplay videos, though.
I just hope the game doesn't have Spec Op missions. I couldn't STAND those. BO2 was the only COD I haven't gotten the platinum for and I didn't even finish the campaign because of those missions.
So, who wants to bet that the main character will be a gravelly-voiced white dude with 5 'o clock shadow?
Meh. I had zero interest in COD for years now, but now it's pushing it (further down). Could you imagine, COD during victorian era, the conflicts in India and Egypt. THAT'd be a gamechanger.
Heck I'd LOVE to play some ANCIENT wargame (like 4.000 BC, babylonians, egyptians, sumerans, ... all thrown into one big pot) over ANY COD.
Futuristic ? That's an instance no buy for me. Why must everyone FPS these days be futuristic ? Go back to WW2 if you want to stand out from the crowd. Leave that futuristic bullcrap to Halo. Go back to either modern day or WW2.
In the brief teaser trailer you can make out the guy from the cover of black ops in the white swirly writing then about 35 or so seconds In you can make out the guy from black ops 2 cover in the orange swirly writing and after that I think the blackops 3 guy, then the digits l ll lll... (Reading WAAAAAAY too much in to a short teaser I know) ...but how many of you would buy it as a black ops trilogy?... Just a thought...
Would rather have a futuristic FPS than a crappy uninteresting WWII based FPS game.
Wouldn't mind if they'd tackle the Cold-War era 1950's-80's just to change it up a little.
I am not buying this pish, cod is dead and has been since the release of bops 2, the only reason it sold so well was because the first black ops was awesome like world at war before it. This will only sell well because of zombies. I really think they should just wipe the whole thing now and start again.
