Call of Duty Vita confirmed, Black Ops 2 also listed on Amazon
How’s this for a double dose of exciting news: Sony has confirmed that Call of Duty will be heading to the PlayStation Vita handheld this autumn! And if that isn’t enough, Amazon France had listed Call of Duty sequel Black Ops 2 for pre-order, before it was swiftly taken down under instruction from Activision. That’s two Call of Duty games to look forward to this year!
In a recent interview caught on camera, Sony Computer Entertainment of America (SCEA) man Guy Longworth revealed that Sony is “really looking forward to Call of Duty on Vita.” Slip of the tongue or not, it’s official confirmation that PlayStation Vita owners have another blockbuster title to look forward to. Longworth believes it will be a “game-changer” for the platform.
However, Longworth did not reveal whether Call of Duty on Vita will be a brand new dedicated Vita Call of Duty, or an older game in the series, shrunken down to liven up future train journeys.
Another interesting turn of developments has seen Amazon France list Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for pre-order for €69.99. The listing has since been taken down under instruction from Activision. The publisher has attempted to prevent the press reporting on the story, strengthening the rumours.
From that alone, we can say that this is no longer a rumour, but fact. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the next Call of Duty game – a direct sequel of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Like 2011, this year is set to be another year of top quality first-person shooters. We’ve already had The Darkness 2 appear in stores – while others we can look forward to include Halo 4 – a proper Halo sequel – and BioShock Infinite. BioShock Infinite swaps the underwater realms of Rapture for a sprawling sky-high floating city.
There will of course be plenty more to come. Which first-person shooter are you looking forward to most this year?
