The official world reveal will happen later tonight during the NBA playoffs on TNT, but we've already got the title and date.
Obviously, Activision couldn't wait to put Call of Duty: Black Ops II before the eyes of the gaming public, as they've posted the title, date, and a few baseline details at the game's official UK site . Then again, maybe it shouldn't have gone up this early…oops.
You can try viewing the premiere video but it probably won't work; you may have to wait until tonight for that. Anyway, as previously rumored, Black Ops II will in fact launch on November 13 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and the setting will be the 21st Century Cold War, "where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare." Leaked environments over the past weeks have included Japan, China and Afghanistan, which may be accurate, as the futuristic setting appears to encompass the globe.
Now that we have the release date, you can probably pre-order the game as of tomorrow – or maybe even today – so if you're a fan, go for it.
