Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Details Possibly Leaked

A new Call of Duty? This year? Shocking news!

Yeah so turns out Call of Duty is having another game this year. We all knew that already (as COD’s inevitable cycle continues annually and is rapidly becoming as important as Christmas) but we didn’t know for sure exactly what it would be. Rumours have been swirling like…well…a big swirly thing for months now about the possibility of Black Ops 2 and now it seems that after a ‘leak’  on Treyarch’s forums that Black Ops 2 has been all but confirmed by a slew of information about the new Call of Duty’s multiplayer.

The new Call of Duty will be once again developed by Treyarch as every year the franchise shifts to a different development house. Last year’s Call of Duty was made by Infinity Ward who will no doubt take up the reins again next year for another instalment of shooting fun. The post on the forums stated that Black Ops 2 is to be slated for a November 6th release date, so you should be able to get a good month of gaming in before the end of the world hits. If you do survive it it’s unlikely there’ll be many people to play online with, so get in the time while you can.

The forum post also reveals a massive list of details about the upcoming Black Ops 2’s multiplayer, including point streaks, kill streaks, game modes and much more. Check it:

Leaked Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Information

Game Modes

  • Say hello to Escort, a brand new game mode exclusive for Black Ops 2. In this mode a live player must be escorted (see, not just a meaningless title) to one of three areas without being killed. You’ll only get one measly life to work with, so be damn careful.

The leaked information has since been pulled, but thanks to the beauty of the ever-spoileriffic internet it remains here, ingrained in textual format for your eyes to gaze at. Take this all with a grain of salt though as it isn’t 100% confirmed just yet. Sound about right though, doesn’t it?
