Amidst the fluff and furore over Infinity Ward and the rumours that Activision are about to close the studio, Treyarch are quietly knocking stuff up in the COD4 engine - and the fruits of their labours will be shown off for the first time on Friday on Gametrailers.

Call of Duty: Black Ops isn't the Vietnam War game we were all expecting, but more of a Modern Warfare-esque take on secretive government-sponsored shenanigans in the world's war-torn countries.

The whole thing sounds a bit thrown together, but the chances are that it'll sell billions.

Tune in on Friday when we'll probably just nick the embed code for the trailer and splat it up here just in case you're too lazy to sit on GT and hit F5 repeatedly.

As if we'd do something like that.

Oh...

I'm actually quietly disappointed that COD7 isn't the Vietnam thing. There would've been oodles of potential there. Though I'm sure Activision will release at least another 3 CODs within the next year.

COD overfished as a future headline again? I think so!

Wouldn't surprise me if Black Ops is a spec-ops spin-off from MW2 and the fully fledged Vietnam campaign is actually still also in development.

Two for the price of one.

I do fear for the CoD franchise after IW's disassembling.

There is also the Ghost game. I was potentially quite interested in that, particularly if it meant that you focussed on playing one character doing some sort of dark ops. So maybe this is something like that.

I dunno, the whole thing's dangerously close to being diluted to fuck. As much as you love the series, I'm sure you feel the same way about it as I do if it sounds like Activision are just going to turn it into a sequel-itis cash cow.

Ugh there's the MMO as well. So if you count Black Ops, Ghost, Vietnam, MW3 AND the MMO that's 5 flippin' Call of Duty games rolling along within the next couple of years, probably all based on the same game engine, probably all very similar in length for single players (short), probably all with very similar multiplayer dynamics and probably all coming with their own line in expensive DLC.
