In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Treyarch design director David Vonderharr hinted that a fourth batch of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops may well be in the pipeline:
I can’t talk to anything beyond ‘Annihilation’, but keep your eyes peeled.
Three “Map Packs” have already been launched since the game’s November 2010 release; the latest, titled “Annihilation,” launched earlier today on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The content will be made available to both PS3 and PC players in a month’s time.
Treyarch’s previous addition to the Call of Duty series, World at War, received three DLC updates, Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 only receiving two. With the number of map packs sold worldwide across all three major gaming platforms, there’s little reason for Treyarch to stop pouring resources into extending the Black Ops experience.
