UPDATE 10:15 am: The first trailer has been released in the US and is now available for the whole world to see (sorry, Channel 9).
Black Ops 2 is a near futuristic shooter set in 2025. And yes, it does include a great many horses.
Original Story: Activision has confirmed the worst guarded secret in gaming: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is coming this November.
The UK website -- which is blocking Australian IPs -- is now live and confirms the game. Black Ops 2 is heading into the near future with a 21st Century Cold War.
"Pushing the boundaries of what fans have come to expect from the record-setting entertainment franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare. Pre-order today," it reads.
Aussies will have to wait a little longer for our "official" launch. It's getting the TV treatment on Channel 9 at 9:45 pm tonight.
As expected, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be released on November 13, 2012, the day of the full solar eclipse.
