What is Tacitus?
The second piece of Black Ops 2 intel on Callofduty.com has been declassified. The place holder for April 24th unlocked just moments ago revealing another blurry picture, but you can clearly make out the word ‘Tacitus’.
This is not the first time Tacitus has come up in the Black Ops 2 marketing push that’s kicked off over the last few days. In the Quadrotor demo video by FPSRussia – the one that confirms that the kit will be in Black Ops 2 – the videos host Dmitri (Kyle) is sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with the very same Tacitus logo on the front.
What Tacitus could have to do with Black Ops 2 nobody seems to know as yet, but you can be sure the Internet sleuths are working feverishly trying to figure it out.
We’ll be sure to let you know any popular theories that pop up.
UPDATE: An interesting picture has also popped up on Twitter (via @PrestigeIsKey) showing the same ‘Tacitus’ logo and a new image of the Quadrotor.
UPDATE: Tacitus.com has been updated in the last few hours with a message that alleges Tacitus is a weapons manufacturer in Black Ops 2 and nothing to do with tacitus.com. Of course this could be a guess by the website’s owner in an effort to stop the traffic spike.
