BY Andrew Miesner / April 30, 2010

Call of Duty: Black Ops has been announced and is expected to be released on November 9th, 2010. The new game was announced on this morning. UK retailer, GAME, has reported that the story line of Call of Duty: Black Ops will take place in a number of different locations from “Cuba to the Arctic and the jungles of Vietnam”.

It was reported last year around this time that the next Call of Duty would be set to take place in Vietnam. Activision has released the Call of Duty: Black Ops website and the game trailer is expected to be released later on tonight. Treyarch, the developer of Black Ops released a blog on the Black Ops site saying:

We at Treyarch are excited to reveal our latest development Call of Duty: Black Ops! Be sure to head over to as more details begin to unfold! Follow @JD_2020 and @Treyarch on Twitter for the latest news & discussions regarding Black Ops.

In addition, Treyarch’s Studio Head, Mark Lamia, says in the official press release:

“We can’t wait for our community to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops. We have focused our entire studio on this game, with dedicated multiplayer, single-player and co-op teams creating the most intense, gripping and riveting experience possible for our fans on all fronts.”

Treyarch has tweeted saying:

The #CODBlackOps teaser trailer will be on Black Ops FaceBook and Call of Duty: Black Ops Website after it airs on GTTV tonight!

It has not yet been confirmed if Black Ops will be released for the PC. Many are wondering if Black Ops will follow the same footsteps as Modern Warfare 2, leaving the competitive scene behind.
