‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ Gets a Release Date

By April 25, 2015

The next installment of the Call of Duty franchise has received a release date, and although not surprising, many fans of the series will likely be happy about having a date they can look forward to for the new game.

According to Kotaku, A GameStop promotional card was leaked that clearly labels the release date as November 6th, 2015. Beginning on Sunday, these cards will begin being handed out to GameStop stores, though the fine print reads that “Actual platform availability and launch date(s) to be determined.” Still, this has generally been the release window for Call of Duty games for the last several years, so even if there’s a small amount of wiggle room in the final day, it will still likely release in early November.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be developed by Treyarch, and will serve as a direct sequel to 2010’s original Black Ops, and 2012’s Black Ops II. The Treyarch developed entries in the Call of Duty franchise have been singled out in recent years for particular praise, with the studio also having developed Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World at War. The story for Black Ops III takes place in a “dark, twisted future,” continuing the trend of the series recent entries by forecasting future technologies and methods of warfare. The most recent entry, last year’s Advanced Warfare, takes place the furthest into the future when compared with the other games in the series, but we don’t yet know exactly what year Black Ops III takes place in.

    I feel like they’re gonna keep bringing out a yearly COD until the end of time.. Even when the human race has died out and the earth gets absorbed during the suns demise, Treyarch will still be pumping out their boring Rehashes of their once upon a time good game..

    and the eternal question for every cod release: will quick-scoping be possible? 🙂
