Black Ops 2 leaked to torrent sites, Treyarch comments on pre-release play

"If you are going to live-stream the game early, you could at least be good at it"

Xbox 360 and PC versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have seemingly been uploaded to torrent sites a week ahead of the game's release, with users claiming that the console version at least is the real deal.

Poor quality, user-made videos of the game have been doing the rounds online for over a week now, since it was claimed that retailers in some parts of Europe had broken the shooter's street date by selling copies ahead of the official Black Ops 2 release date of November 13.

Some movies feature campaign gameplay, although Zombies footage has proven particularly popular.

While Activision has declined to comment on reports that the Black Ops 2 street date has been broken, Treyarch game design director David Vonderhaar has responded to the growing number of users posting gameplay videos online.

"I'm really glad people are excited for the game," he said on Twitter. "Legit streams coming up later this week and early next. Watch this space.

"If you are going to live-stream the game early, which I don't remotely recommend, you could at least be good at it. :P"

Here's some newly uploaded Zombies footage for those who can't wait until next Tuesday.
