    Good job you have found a random website, want a cookie?

  • Re: TACITUS

    Woodysgamertag does a great analysis of the FPSRussia video, but didn't touch on TACITUS a lot.  He pointed out an odd gun on the table and made some speculation as to what it could be.  I think we will find out as time goes on and they declassify some more of the windows on the COD page.

     

    Anyone can Google TACITUS and find pics like the one above or learn about the first century Roman writer who wrote about Nero and the first Christians.  Maybe TACITUS is an anagram of another new item from the next COD title; TAC SUIT or something.  Why not? The quad rotor in the video is mentioned as being another decade or so into the future.  A TAC SUIT which could render a person less visible could be an interesting new addition to the game and I know it is something many governments have been working on for ages.  Near future warfare could definitely include something of the sort.

     

    Time will tell, but speculation is fun.

    FPSrussia already stated that website has nothing to do with the viral; ignore it, it has been debunked.

     

    So far, CharlieINTEL has found that "TACITUS" relates to a roman who seen an eclipse of the sun, going back to what was shown in Gamestop in their marketing material.

    anyhoos.. i posted a revisewd version on twitter as i cant get twitlonger to work..

    so sent what i had to charlieintel.. which basically said

     

    earlier the image on tacitus.com changed briefly showing a email address and the text changed to remove the word game design.. I noticed that and did alittle interwebz snooping today.

    the tacitus website is run by a company called sapient http://www.sapient.com/  , sapient handle alot of pre launch and post launch marketing for call of duty remember the jeep promotions for mw3 that was sapient (although one of its off shoots called sapient nitro

    Sapient also got the contract from activison to handle all its skylanders and mw3 internet marketing

    linky to a press release if you need it

    http://adage.com/art...al-work/228634/

    So basically whatever that tacitus website is .. it IS linked to call of duty and activision as its run by the company who does there internet marketing ..bit of a coincidence dontcha think?

    Even in the website it reads it has nothing to do with Black Ops 2, but hey be my guest and keep wasting your time. And that reminds me I need to go to Wasted a moment thread.
