Black Ops Rezurrection DLC announced

Plus, rosy Acti earnings report comes in.

Another Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC pack is on its way, according to Activision's latest earnings report.

Its Q2 fiscal year financials released today noted that the publisher intends to ship the Rezurrection pack at some point in the next three months. No details were offered as to what will be included in the pack or how much it'll sell for.

The last add-on, the Annihilation map pack, arrived on Xbox 360 in late June, with a PC and PlayStation 3 launch following last week.

Elsewhere in the earnings report, Activision boasted of "better-than-expected" results for the last three months of trading. Net revenues were up to $1.1 billion compared with $967 million in the same period last year.

"Our better-than-expected second-quarter performance was driven by record digital sales of our online-enabled franchises. For the six month period, net revenues from digital channels grew more than 20 per cent, driving record operating margin and EPS growth of more than 50 per cent," commented CEO Bobby Kotick.

"Looking to the balance of the year, while we have numerous releases we believe our audiences will be especially excited by three key properties - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, our new online service Call of Duty Elite and Skylanders Spyro's Adventure - all of which are shaping up to be incredible.

"To date, pre-orders for Modern Warfare 3 have significantly exceeded the pre-orders for Black Ops at this time last year. In addition, we believe that Call of Duty Elite, which was built for Modern Warfare 3 and is expected to launch with the game on November 8, should redefine social connectivity for multiplayer gaming.

"Additionally, we expect that Skylanders Spyro's Adventure will change the way we look at toys and video games by bringing the world of toys, video games and the Internet together in an unprecedented way."
