Gameloft has confirmed development of N.O.V.A. 2 today in a teaser trailer released on the company's YouTube channel.

Specific platforms aren't mentioned in the trailer, although it's assumed that the game will be available for iPhone and iPod touch.

Other devices - Android, an HD iPad version, and potentially Windows Phone 7 - are likely to follow after the initial release.

Additionally, no release date is provided in the video; however, own own Rumour Miner predicted earlier this year that the first-person shooter sequel would be out before the end of 2010 or early 2011 at the latest.

Details on gameplay are nowhere to be found in the trailer, but don't let that stop the speculation.

Reference in the video to the first game's protagonist, former space military man Karl Wardin, probably means his reprisal in the starring role.

A new campaign is sure to be among the highlights, as will revamped multiplayer. High-definition graphics are definitely in the cards, as Gameloft has been diligent in supporting iPhone 4 in its recent releases.

We'll report more details as soon as we learn more about N.O.V.A. 2.
