Sounds logical to me. The rumors have been floating around since the success of Black Ops. I must even admit that I'm very much looking forward. Loved the story part of the first BO and we're still playing mp now

So? It was very well made. It isn't that hard to know how an action movie and/or shooter game ends, it's how you get there.
For my taste the MW storyline got more and more exaggeration whilst other games' campaigns are plain boring (or start to get interesting right before they end, e.g. MoH or BF3). BO and WaW were just about right for me, also kept me entertained for around 20 hours. It was much harder than MW3 or BF3 on their highest settings and the hidden "secrets" actually gave you some background information, I thought that was kinda neat.

I agree, either COD franchise needs to die, or they need to bring something new to the table, having the same game every year since 2007, which each one has less desirable features then COD4, is getting out of hand and ridiculous

And honestly, the only thing i can think of, is a brand new, built from scratch, engine

Your statement would be all fine and dandy, only problem is, we're being fed the same crap every year and being charged an enormous regurgitated price for it

COD4 was the best, why? Dedicated servers, custom maps, mods, tweaks, small mods (server side) etc. etc. etc., without all of that, SOMETHING else has to change, and since Activision has no interest in letting the PC platform be able to mod and make custom maps, an engine change not dependent on the next gen consoles is what is required

What activision is doing with the COD franchise is like a car company releasing a brand new vehicle every single year with nothing new but a new paint job and touting it as if it's biggest thing to be released since ever and expecting everyone to go buy the current years model even if they already have the model from 4 years ago with a different paint job

Black Ops has considerably better visuals, aka graphics, than MW2 or MW3. Try maxing out Black Ops once, use SuperSampling AA, I looks very nice.

It has better maps, textures, and sound as well.

Lets face it the only good MW was CoD4 MW1.

For a lot of people, especially on PC, Black Ops was the best since MW1.

black ops had better graphics and needed more requirements because it has vegetation bending, vegetation wind, and better textures.

black ops has better graphics only in one aspect, because it has vegetation wind and vegetation bending, while Mw1 and mw 2 dont have.that's about it.

Graphics are absolutely fine and gameplay has always been top-notch, at least the Treyarch package (and MW1 ).
They'll have a new engine for sure when the next Xbox comes out. Until then a tweakable, stable engine with ranked dedicated servers is absolutely fine.
It's the gameplay that counts and they definitely got that right. MW3 lacks some decent-sized maps but BO is a great title.

Sure but it's a modified Quake 3 engine, it's time for a new one.

Wait, what ranked dedicated servers? I thought dedicated servers were not ranked.

I could not disagree more with everything you've stated.

Personally, I've not really enjoyed any CoD game (aside from the first level of the Russian campaign in CoD:FH when I was still playing console nonsense on the original Xbox as a kid with poor-taste). The gameplay is pure garbage, IMO, and the graphics are AWFUL. And the continual shafting of PC-gaming strengthens my resolve to not buy Activision crap.

Best thing ever would be if the entire franchise imploded and Activision died.

Sadly not going to happen, however.

whats soo funny is that games like Left4Dead dont even hold a candle up to the zombies games in Black Ops
(as far as cool factor goes and as far as playability goes as well)... it just shows that the mechanics dont have to be complex and as long as you have a good base game with a stable engine and intuitive controls(even tho GFX arent that great), you can do pretty much anything you want!

From an official FAQ posted on the CoD Community web page. Windows XP not supported. Directx 11. No fps cap.

Quote:
What are the Minimum System Requirements?
OS: Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7
CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHz
Memory: 2GB for 32-bit OS or 4GB for 64-bit OS
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512 MB or ATI Radeon HD 3870 512 MB

Can I run the game on Windows XP?
No, sorry. Since we upgraded the engine to use DirectX11, Windows XP is no longer supported. It requires Windows Vista or later.

Will the game actually be playable on my minimum spec machine?
Absolutely. We have tested extensively on a variety of hardware and we are very confident in the performance even at the minimum specs.

What engine is used for Black Ops II?
The Black Ops II engine builds upon the Black Ops engine with a number of improvements including performance optimizations, enhanced graphics, and proprietary anti-cheat technology.

What performance optimizations have you introduced for Black Ops II?
Performance has been a top priority for Black Ops II PC from day one and we have achieved significant improvements. Weve improved the way the engine handles multiple threads. Additionally, we moved the engine from DX9 to DX11. The DX11 API is leaner than DX9 and requires less CPU time to do the same amount of work. It is important to point out that this benefits the entire range of supported GPUs, not just DX11 hardware. We have also added more quality vs performance options than ever before so you can customize your experience to either run faster or to satisfy your taste in eye candy.

You mentioned enhanced graphics for the PC version. Can you tell us more about that?
Black Ops II PC features enhanced lighting, shadows, antialiasing, bloom, depth of field, ambient occlusion, and other enhanced effects that are still in the works. And the game can run at higher resolutions and higher framerates on the PC.

Will there be a framerate cap?
No. Unless you want one. We have included an adjustable FPS cap slider in the game options. The minimum setting is OFF (no cap).
