Call of Duty: Black Ops
Treyarch Hints at a Fourth Black Ops Map Pack After 'Annihilation'

With the Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation map pack yet to hit the PlayStation Network, Treyarch is already hinting at the possibility of more DLC to come for Black Ops, with the possibility that a fourth dose of downloadable maps could be on the way.

“I can’t talk anything beyond ‘Annihilation’, but keep your eyes peeled,” Treyarch's Design Director, David Vonderhaar told Digital Spy. Vonderhaar left it at that though, neglecting to reveal anything further.

More map packs for Call of Duty: Black Ops is a complete no-brainer, so tell us something we don't know. With the game declared the best selling of all time in the UK, Black Ops has been wildly successful, so you can bet that the DLC will keep on coming as long as there's money to be made.

CoD: Black Ops Annihilation map pack will be available on the PlayStation Store soon for $15. Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming five map pack, which includes the Silo, Drive-In, Hangar 18, Hazard and Shangri-La zombie map.

Hurry up and release all the map-packs then do a Zombie only bundle like you did with W@W. No way I'm paying $15 per zombie map (don't care about the multiplayer ones).

How can they keep releasing DLC and not fixing the lag and hit detection issues?

@ #2 - easy, they are only worried about the money! and as long as people keep buying the crap, regardless of whether they fix them or not, then they will not fix the issues and keep putting out more crap dlc.

How can Activision continue getting away with $15 map packs? I get people will pay it, but they have to be pushing their customers a bit too far. If there's a fourth map pack, which will undoubtedly be $15, that's $60 for about 20 maps. You can buy a new game instead of all the Black Ops DLC. I just don't understand how there isn't a full-on consumer revolt against Activision.

This blatant milking of the franchise is starting to get irritating. I gave up buying CoD DLC after W@W, very glad I did.

@4 Olsen, its really very simple, don't buy the game (rent or borrow from friends) and don't ever buy the DLC (I never do)In fact I already deleted my save profile off my HDD b/c after achieving platinum I have no reason to ever play this game again.

@7 espacialy wen the cod dlcs are one month later for ps3 that mean that the 4th map must be in xbox live in 3 months for the ps3 to get the dlc beafor the mw3 releash so the 3rd must be in a month or 2 that is crazy

@4 I know it's crazy but some people just genuinely like being spanked they will even go as far as making spending the same amount on map packs as an entire game sound like a worthwhile thing to to. Black ops is terrible the graphics are poor the game okay is poor AI is poor hit detection blah blah blah but people do for some reason keep buying this trash I'd rather IW brought out a new Mw2 map bundle at least the graphics are good and the hit detection works. I don think it will last much longer tho if they do bring a fourth out at the current price

@10 or maybe some people dont give a shit and realise that 60$ isnt a whole hell of a lot of money, an that for 20 maps for a game they probably enjoy playing its worth it to buy instead of some other game they may not like, obviously they wouldnt charge 15$ a piece if they knew they couldnt sell it, if youre that upset about it then juat dont buy them and dont support activision and treyarch, they dont care if one person disagrees with their marketing so long as as other are paying. Call of duty is huge, they know that people will always buy it and that they cant get away with selling dlc for 9.99$ because its expected of them. Supply and demand man

Lol. I mean, I never really took COD seriously after I tried MW2 and realized Black Ops and MW3 look exactly like it, but.. lol. This is worse than the direction Guitar Hero was going.

I didn't buy any expansions for Black Ops and I won't buy another COD game until this exclusive crap with XCOCKS ends. We pay the same money, why treat us as second class? I know they have a contract and that's why but it's bullshit. No more!!!

@11 did you read any of my comment or are you just getting the CoD fanboy hump? To a lot of people $60 or £45 is an amount of money that is quite considerable especially when the product isn't worth that amount of money. Don't be ignorant people may find it difficult to find that much money. My comment clearly said that IF they bring a fourth map pack out at the increased price THEN people will start to probably think ....hold on a second this is getting a bit ridiculous! Activation charge €15 coz they are money grabbing bitches, and don't worry since mw2 I haven't and never intend to support dlc from activision again. Say what you want €60 for 20 maps is not worth while but then it's people like you that keep these money grab if companies churning out sub standard ps2 games/add ins and selling it off as next generation games. Activision may not care about me personally but I'm just one of millions who will no be parting with £11.50 when the inevitable map pack 4 comes out, now a million people not paying £11.50 makes £11.5 million in lost money, that I am sure they WILL listen too

@14: I certainly won't buy another... I loved COD4, I liked WAW, I was unmoved by MW2 and didn't buy Black Ops -- something that I became especially pleased about after playing the pisspoor demo for it. I'm satisfied with Killzone for FPS action. It's simply a better game, with better and cheaper DLC.

I hate cod and it is really expensive, but if people want to use their money on them, let them. But its crap that they never improve their game, same engine since cod 4! Thats back in the day where the used a lot of time to perfect cod. They only released one map pack too. I dont get why they dont put all maps in the main game. If its one of the best selling games ever, then i dont guess they will need all those money from dlc. Each new cod is just a new map pack... just with new SP and some few minor changes in MP like theater mode and cod money and that kind of crap!

The only thing that pisses me off about this is that its going to sell like hot cakes the day it drops. yet I paid $9.99 for my damn Crysis maps and can't get too many decent games rolling on the DLC maps because everybodies too busy paying $15 for these crap maps!!!!!! Please people, go buy Crysis on sale and pay $9.99 for some really well textured maps and come play with me lol.

I think this is BULLSHIT!!! I've never bought a single DLC for B.O., I download 'em off my friend's account & I think it's retarded. Every1 knows that once a "new" one comes out, eveyone forgets about the old one. Everyone who agrees with me should join me in a boycott of C.O.D. products & DLCs until they lower the price, stop making SHITBOX get it first, & put out less fucking DLCs until they fix the problems with them before they're released.

I may not be a big fan of cod but most my friends are and it's a damn shame that xbox 360 gets these maps first. Does Activision think that the 360 gamers are better than the PS3 gamers? I mean how greedy can one company get? This timed exclusive shit needs to end. I may not be buying these maps but many PS3 gamers are and it's unfair that they have to wait a month after the 360 gamers.

@ All...... you people who whine to much about the cost of the map packs.....Sure treyarch is trying to make a buck or two but who in this world isnt.....nobody is forcing you to buy a thing......Some people dont mind paying a little for something new.All I can say is if you dont like the game dont play it...its that easy to solve that problem....OK go ahead and give it to me I know theres a few out there that will hehe.....
