Activision buy domain name for Black Ops 2

Activision have successfully purchased the domain name BlackOps2.com, which has fueled rumors that Treyarch are currently developing Black Ops 2. Treyarch's previous addition to the Call of Duty series broke entertainment release records all around the world, so I don't think it would be a surprise if we found out that they will be continuing to build on those sturdy foundations.

As it turns out, it hasn't been an easy task for Activision to get their hands on this particular domain name. Previously, the publishing company had purchased BlackOps3.com, BlackOps4.com, BlackOps5.com, and even BlackOps6.com. However, the domain name for number 2 had already been snapped up by somebody else, which begs the question; did Activision have to pay that somebody a chunk of money or did they get the suits out and threaten them with threats of legal action?

Either way, Activision's latest acquisition has certainly made Black Ops 2 a plausible reality, especially since the first game in the series sold over 14 million copies.
