September 16, 2010 Written by Adam G

Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty game, Black Ops, is looking to take the series into some new and unfamiliar ground. Speaking at Deutsche Bank 2010 Technology Conference, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said that Black Ops will essentially be laying the foundations for the content and features to come in the next Call of Duty games.

Kotick explained how Call of Duty’s single player will progress from game to game.

“Black Ops will give you a sense of how different the games will look visually. The characters, the story, the gameplay – it will only get richer as well. Eventually, these character will look more like a film and stories will get more real and in-depth, and innovations like Kinect and Move using voice to control what’s on the screen, and movements to control what’s on screen – those will bring big changes to all games in the future.”

Robert ‘Money-Bags’ Kotick also hinted at how Treyarch will be supporting Black Ops after its release.

“With Black Ops, we’re doing new things like Wager Match with the game, and by offering the ability to play against people you have an identity with and thus providing a higher level of engagement,” he said. We’re also going to be providing extra content on a more frequent basis.”

Look for Call of Duty: Black Ops to make a commercial killing when it launches on November 9th.
