Call of Duty countdown

The official Call of Duty website is counting down to a “world reveal” (most likely Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, if all the recent leaks on the Internet are anything to go by) on May 1 during the NBA playoffs on TNT.

The site is also filled with “classified” pictures, some of which will unlock throughout the rest of April.

Activision has released a new Call of Duty every November since Call of Duty 2 in 2006, which was a launch title for the Xbox 360. Since then, developers Infinity Ward and Treyarch have taken turns handling the series, with the former responsible for the Modern Warfare titles and the latter 2010’s Black Ops. Since Modern Warfare 3 came out last, it’s likely that the next, Treyarch-developed entry in the series will be a sequel to the wildly popular Black Ops.
