While Activision has kept deliberately coy about exactly what it’s teasing with this new #backinblack trailer, PlayStation has cut through the noise, announcing that yes, of course, it’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Earlier this week, Activision updated Black Ops 2 to introduce a number of QR codes into the game’s world. These codes point to the official Call of Duty Snapchat account, which included a simple video, “Listen only to the sound of my voice.”
Today, things are even more obvious: The new trailer includes a vocal snippet saying “The numbers, Mason,” which is a direct quote from earlier Black Ops games… and if that was too subtle for you, the Black Ops II logo morphs into a III by the end of the video.
…and then there’s the fact that the official PlayStation YouTube account posted the video as “Call of Duty: Black Ops III – BackInBlack | PS4”, which kinda erases all doubt.
