'Call of Duty' reveal next week: 'Black Ops 2' to be announced?

Call of Duty's upcoming instalment will be unveiled next week, Activision has confirmed.
Widely expected to be a follow-up to Call of Duty: Black Ops, the game will be shown during the ad breaks of a basketball playoff match on May 1.
The official Call of Duty website, meanwhile, is counting down to the reveal by releasing a series of fuzzy images, depicting what appears to be scenes from the game.
New "classified" images will be unscrambled on a daily basis, although there remains a number of pictures without dates attached.
The promotional style is similar to a poster that was discovered last week, which fits in with the Black Ops theme.
The poster contained the phrase: "Return For Debriefing", which suggests that the game will be a sequel.
Earlier this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 briefly appeared on Amazon's French site. Activision claims that the next release will contain "meaningful innovations".
A leaked report detailing new multiplayer modes, perk systems and the game's release date was discovered last month. The title is said to launch on November 6.
The game's concluding act was recently voted the greatest ending of all time by Guinness World Records readers.
Can't wait to see the big reveal. I hope it is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 because I really enjoyed the first one. The campaign plot was fresh and interesting.
