Black Ops 2 site goes live, confirms release date, '21st Century Cold War' setting

"Technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare"

Activision's official Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 website has gone live.

As well as confirming a November 13 release date for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, plus the game's box art, the site's pre-order page says:


"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."

The site also links to the first Black Ops 2 trailer on Call of Duty's YouTube channel, but the video is currently private. We imagine that will change once the debut trailer has been aired on US TV tonight.

In a double leak whammy, the first proper Black Ops 2 screenshots have emerged online via All Games Beta. The shots show off the futuristic Quadrotor attack drone previously revealed in a viral video. Hit the link to see 'em.

Here's what we already know - or think we know - about Black Ops 2.
