Well, let the hype train commence.

Treyarch, the developers behind Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, recently patched in a seemingly insignificant update to their 2 ½ year old game. While seeing what was new with the update, YouTuber Drift0r happened to run across some in-game advertisements that seemed to have changed in appearance.

On the maps of Plaza and Express, certain marketing materials now have an image of the SnapChat ghost icon. Within that image are dot codes the SnapChat app can read. So, once you pull the app up on your phone or tablet, you can take a picture of the newly embedded image and magically “callofduty” becomes your friend.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 SnapChat IconOnce becoming friends with “callofduty” on SnapChat, readers are reporting that they are getting random images from the account. Here’s is what we’ve collected so far:

Also on the account is a voice memo with light music in the background stating “listen only to the sound of my voice.” Intriguing indeed, but it doesn’t tell us much. But when paired with common sense, things seem to be pointing to a possible reveal of Black Ops 3. E3 is just a couple months away. Activision typically begins revealing their new Call of Duty entries around May. And Treyarch is next in line to release a Call of Duty title out of the 3 Activision studios that churn them out.

Let us know in the comments whether you think Black Ops 3 is on the way or if this is something else entirely. But it assuredly is something. Checkout Drift0r’s find in the video below.
