Much of what is now ‘official’ was leaked a week early. We reported on it here. There was some speculation that the name of the game might be ‘Eclipse,’ that proved to be incorrect. But the release date, November 13, does coincide with an actual solar eclipse that will be viewable from northern Australia and the southern Pacific Ocean.
When the game comes out in November, it will be available right away for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PCs. According to the company, there will also be a PlayStation Vita version. No word on anything coming down the pike for the Nintendo Wii nor the Nintendo 3DS.
As can be seen in the preview, Black Ops 2 takes a leap into the future. It will feature David Mason, the son of Black Ops (1) main character, Alex Mason. Word is that the game will start in the 1980’s, before taking a leap to 2025. The official tag line of the game? “The Future Is Black.”
