A rumor has been making the rounds that claims Treyarch and Activision will reboot another beloved game in the Call of Duty franchise next year. The rumor claims that Call of Duty: Black Ops will get the reboot treatment. The game is alleged to be called either Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game is reportedly set in the Cold War era and includes content from both the Korean and Vietnam Wars in its stories. The original Black Ops game was set in 1961 and 1968 and wrapped military action and political aspects of the era into the game. However, one leak claims that the game will span over 40 years. The rumor claims that the game will be more gritty and gruesome than the... Read more...
Some Xbox gamers who received a shiny new Xbox One X for Christmas and a copy of Black Ops 4 have discovered something very annoying. Reports have surfaced that the game on the Xbox One X console is crashing when players near the end of a match. Treyarch has now stepped up and confirmed the problem and says that it is actively working on a fix for the crash issue. This isn't the first complaint from gamers that Treyarch has had to address. In October it also had to confront complaints about server performance. Treyarch took to Twitter to try and calm owners of the game facing the crash issue. Treyarch said that it was aware of an "intermittent freeze issue during late-game play in Blackout."... Read more...
Like most developers getting ready to launch a major AAA game title, Treyarch, developer of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 game that launched this month, held a beta and used that feedback to improve the game. Black Ops 4 earned rave reviews from the players who participated in that beta for its gameplay and the speedy nature of the servers hosting the game. However, players have been upset because when the game launched, the performance of the network hosting the online-only game wasn't up to the same standards as the network hosting the beta. During the beta period, the servers for the game were reported to be operating at 60Hz, but after launch, the servers are operating... Read more...
When can you pretty much guarantee that the multiplayer part of a certain game is more popular than its single-player campaign? When the publisher decides to release an MP-only "starter pack", of course. That's exactly what Activision has just done with Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It's no secret that the Call of Duty series is one of the most popular destinations for gaming on Earth, with each release selling in quantities that are enviable by every other developer and publisher out there. So why, then, would Activision risk hurting its sales by releasing an MP-only pack? By stripping many features and capping the level - those crafty buggers! But what else can we expect for the asking price... Read more...
Yesterday, we received great news from Activision with the formation of the Call of Duty World League, which will launch in January 2016. Today, however, we’re getting some not-so-great news for owners of last generation Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming consoles. Treyarch announced today that the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will not feature a single-player campaign mode. Treyarch explains that “delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority,” but that it “could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.” “With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience...

After a string of disappointing game launches (some of which were possibly made worse by inadequate testing), it’s good to see Activision and developer Treyarch running a large-scale beta ahead of its Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 release. Scott Lowe of Activision announced this week that that the companies will run a worldwide multiplayer beta starting next month, giving it plenty of time to work out any kinks before the official November 6 release date. “During the beta, fans will have an opportunity to try the new momentum-based, chained movement system, find the perfect Specialist to fit their play style, get a feel for the new multiplayer maps and more,” Lowe wrote in a blog post. So what are... Read more...
Let's face it: if there's one aspect of gaming that's a bit lacking, it's zombies. To help remedy this obvious void, Call of Duty: Black Ops II developer Treyarch is packing-in a zombie-filled story mode in its upcoming DLC, dubbed "Uprising". If you're already familiar with the base game (which we reviewed at launch), then you're no doubt aware that there already exists a mode for the zombie-killer in all of us. But there was no real story to speak of there, which some considered to be its primary flaw. Uprising includes four multiplayer maps including a reinvisioning of "Firing Range" (now called Studio), with its zombie portion called Mob of the Dead - where "mob" refers to the mobster playable...
