Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: Is this the first image from the game?

Hot-on-the-heels of last week's exciting rumours that Activision is just about ready to reveal its latest Call of Duty comes confirmation from Activision via its official Call of Duty site that - yes - gamers should brace for a 'Call of Duty World Reveal' on 1 May.

The reveal, which is scheduled to take place during the basketball playoffs airing on TNT, will almost certainly be for a sequel to the 2010 multi-million selling first-person shooter Black Ops. And this image - which was de-classified on the Call of Duty site this morning - could be the very first image from the game:

Admittedly it's pretty fuzzy and just looks like a bunch of static. But someone with good eyes over at NeoGaf suggested it could be a 'flyable drone'. And that seems like a decent call. Look at the image again but this time with some arrows pointing at stuff:

Above: Can you see it?

We spent some additional time staring pretty intensely into the static in the hope of some other image coming into focus. We thought we saw Tupac for a moment but it probably wasn't. We'll continue staring into the static for the rest of the day and if we see anything of interest we'll let you know.

In the countdown to the reveal, a new image (or other piece of media) is scheduled to be de-classified every day on the Call of Duty site. So stay tuned to GamesRadar for more in-depth analysis of fuzzy, static images.

In the meantime, have a go staring into the static and if you see anything interesting please let us know in the comments.

    I wonder if I'll still be able to max it out on my coal-powered rig...

    If you take a look at the image of the "drone" on their website, just before clicking it, look at it for a little while the image flashes and you can have a better look at the shape. I gotta say ever since NeoGaf said it could be a flying drone all I can see is a damn drone!

    I have given up on the call of duty series, all it is now is a bunch of 8 year old's running about with SMG's. It's just boring, yes the campaign's are full of explosions and that but generally there is nothing there, they didn't even bother using a new engine in the latest one. They knew it would sell well because it has 'Call of Duty' all over it, they need to stop selling them annually and spend some actual time on their games, instead of trying to throw them on the shelves every bloody November. Well that's my opinion.

    Just looks like a camera on the outside of a wall.

    Has it been a year since the last COD already? My how the time flies...

    The picture looks like the offspring of glados and this could it be the antagonist of the next call of duty, it'll promise you biscuits and put you through rigorous tests of endurance such as how long can ones sanity last when trapped in a lobby of ten year olds swearing their heads off.

    It looks exactly like it. :D This could mean.... that this black ops could take place in the future!
  • dropededed - April 23, 2012 6:11 a.m. go to the 5:o2 point in the video, It'll show tell you that the video is sponsered by t"the makers of call of duty" this could mean that the game WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE FUTURE, since he mentions erlier in the video that that technology won't be in its final stages for another 2 years. Or something. Also.... he does state that this could be featured in the game.

    Wow! That is exactly what it is good job!

    Can't tell between the static and my dusty screen. Black Ops is the only game that I've ever bought that was broken with bugs. Somewhere after Vietnam it just freezes between levels on my newish 360. Hopefully their cryptic screen will solve that riddle. Out.
