I'm actually looking forward to this because I loved the original Black Ops. Infinity Ward's past two games have been big disappointments for me, which I never expected.
The engine has been showing its age for a while. It's pathetic that they're still using it, honestly. I have serious doubts as to whether or not Activision knows what route to take with the next generation of consoles in terms of Call of Duty. They're really going to get their rears kicked if they haven't been investing in one of their studios to make a brand new engine (or completely overhaul the Call of Duty engine).
Me too. Although the graphics are outdated, I think it's great that they're finally doing something other than World War II or "modern warfare". I'm really looking forward to it because I enjoyed playing Black Ops a lot. In my opinion, Treyarch does a better job at balancing multiplayer than Infinity Ward.
Also, they'd be shooting themselves in the head if they plan on using an updated version of the Infinity Ward engine. It's really old and other engines like CryENGINE 3 and Frostbite 2 are better in just about every way (other than being able to run at 60 FPS on current gen consoles).
