Black Ops 2 hasn’t even been out 24 hours and theres already news about next year’s Call of Duty. VG24/7 is reporting a new rumor from Siliconera which states that Activision has begun recording audio from voice actor’s and that the main character in the game is “a battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view.”
The source also mentioned a flashback scene set in Somalia featuring John “Soap” MacTavish. The main actor’s part is codenamed “Ben Burke” and here’s some of the lines he recorded:
- “Reminds you of Phuket, doesn’t it? Only this time the dust gives you cancer… OK, park yourself and get ready. When this thing kicks off, put a hole in anything that moves.”
- “This is Sentinel Zero One, successful crypto change on C2 net break, requesting immediate update of blue force picture and status of artillery, over. I have you broken and unreadable, I say again, requesting updates to friendly positions and status of arty support. Do you read, over?”
- “We’ve got KVA on the move! They’re going to strongpoint the main gate, ETA two mikes! We’re providing support for our heavy rollers! Ready up and let’s move!”
- “Goliath, this is Sentinel Zero One! We have enemy armor at the gate, hundred meters north of our position! Requesting close-air grid mark three-one-six!”
Of course this is all just a rumor since Activision hasn’t confirmed anything at this time.
According to VG247, this is the same source that gave Siliconera early information on Sleeping Dogs, which later turned out to be correct; the site also had access to Tomb Raider information well ahead of its general release.
