CoD: Black Ops II Title and Release Date Confirmed by Target Pre-Order Cards

At last, we can stop guessing the exact title of Treyarch’s upcoming Call of Duty.

An IGN UK reader has recently pointed out that Target pre-order cards confirm the title and logo, Black Ops II, and the date, 11.13.12, as expected. 

The title was indirectly confirmed earlier when we learned a morse code on the official Call of Duty website read “Black Ops II.” Similarly, the release date has been referred to a number of times and was revealed thanks to this leaked promotional cover.

So, there you have it. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will release this November 13th, 2012.

Make sure to keep an eye on our dedicated Black Ops 2 section for the latest hints, clues and news!

Thanks, Jugulator, for the tip!

  • ok but im gonna wait till some gameplay before i prorder i might not either cause i preordered BO 1 and it was sh*t on ps3 soo i think ill wait

  • Interesting.  I honestly expected them to pick a different title,  I was hoping for “Eclipse” instead.  Black Ops 2 is just kinda awkward sounding and from all the leaked info that points to a futuristic setting, it’s not even a sequel to the original Black Ops.  But obviously brand awareness leads to more sales…

      Can’t really build on to the BO1 story. 

      • I know, the BO1 story ends on a conclusion, I don’t know where they could go with it.  I guess the story will be different but it will still follow that “blacked out operations” theme

        •  that is what I’m thinking.

    See idk how folks like mw3 it was shit the story mode the graphics hell Mario cart had better ones so I’m ready bo2 as long as its nothing like mw shit oh I’ meant 3

       You know that Infinity Wards graphics are pretty much universally accepted as being better than Treyarchs right? Say what you want on the gameplay, cause that is purely based on opinion. But the graphics? Thats kinda hard to argue. I think youd have a difficult time finding fair minded people to agree with you on that one.

      •  the overall textures of MW3 looked better then black ops but the effects (fire,explosions, bullet tracings) looked better in black ops personally

        • Gannon

           I can possibly agree with that to some extent.
          To me, the game as a whole however just looks so much better. I guess cause the textures and whatnot make up almost everything you see most of the time.

      I like treyarch graphics way better then mw3’s graphics. IW is just horrible at making cod games

      •  HEY! dont you ever say that! sure the NEW infinity ward sucks but the old is king have some respect for the creating studio of the entire COD franchise!

        • PlazmaASSassin96

          Bro, IW was the past and now Treyarch is the future, ZOMBIES FTW!!!

          • true treyarch actually cares about the community  unlike infinity  (after the lawsuit and the original creators left) treyarch stepped in and they have been amazing the post launch support is great sad that IW couldnt even make a crappy non buggy game :/

  • Great Article 🙂

  • tellmeadeshina

  • Jaskdavis

    Let me know when They come up with something NEW and INNOVATIVE! In the meanwhile and near future I will be busy with BF3, CRY3, FC3, and MOH Warfighter! 😉

    •  You getting Far Cry 3 aka Cod clone?

    • You

       You do that, thanks for letting us know 🙂

    • all the titles added at the end . ARE DOWN RIGHT AMAZING GAMES :p

  • blondbassist

    MW2 was the best looking CoD of them all IMO, The gun textures were 1st class and the lighting in some parts of the game was absolutely stunning (even more astonishing the fact that it was achieved @ 60 FPS on a console )

    • tellmeadeshina

      Are you bananas 😛 They re-done a whole load of guns for MW3 to make their textures even better than ever.

      It is all null and void however as Black Ops has the best camo.
