IGN has uncovered the “officially unofficial” release date for Call of Duty Black Ops II. According to a Target reservation card, the game is set to drop November 13th, 2012. Right now it looks like there are only placards for the PS3 and 360, but a PC and money-grubbing dumbed-down Wii release is most likely soon to follow.
There have been a lot of rumors lately about Black Ops being set in present day, which for me would be a bit jarring, as it would start to blend with the Modern Warfare line. While this is pretty much a final confirmation, the “official” reveal will be on May 1st, to celebrate the NBA playoffs.
