Forums - Gaming Discussion - What does Pitfall have to do with Black Ops 2/Nuketown?

Watch the end of the Nuketown trailer, and see the Pitfall Harry 2600 yell.  I am curious what the heck Pitfall has to do with Black Ops 2/Nuketown:

Both are Activision games.

Pitfall was a 1982 game.

BLOPS 2 is a 2012 game.

It's the 30th anniversary of Pitfall and year 1 for BLOPS 2.

 

Pitfall put Activision on the map and BLOPS 2 is a continuation of that success.

So, nothing connected with Pitfall or Atari 2600 games will be making an appearance in Black Ops 2?

I don't know. There could be an easter egg of some kind. It is the 30th anniversary of Pitfall after all. They may have something special planned.



i hope a new full fledged awesome pitfall game is in the works!! i LOVE pitfall the lost expedition!!

Bet With Zero: He says WiiU and XB1 gap will be higher than 1.9M by end of 2014, i say it will grow smaller or vanish. 

Bet with Pezus: i win if Watch dogs sells more on PS3+360  than on next gen PS4 + Xbox One. winner gets 1 month sig control

Bet With JoeTheBro: He says WiiU in Jan 2013 > XB1 Jan 2014, i say the opposite.

There is supposed to be one actually, from what I heard.  I believe iOS based, unless I am mistaken.

You're thinking of the game that the original creator of Pitfall,  David Crane, is making. It's supposed to be a "jungle adventure" game, but it isn't an official Pitfall game because Activision still has those rights.

He was trying to raise millions of dollars and I am not sure he made it.

There is a Pitfall game for iOS made by Activision, I'm pretty sure.

That really brings back memories, though. If you don't count Combat, which was bundled with the 2600, then I think Pitfall was my very first home video-game.
