Activision lends some legitimacy to leaked details about its next Call of Duty by removing them from the official Black Ops forum.A detailed description of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was posted in the official Call of Duty: Black Ops forum earlier this week. While Activision quickly removed the information, MP1st noted that the thread’s cache is still out there with all the succulent morsels of information still tucked safely inside.
According to the post, the Treyarch-developed Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be out on Nov. 6. A new game mode called “Escort” will be introduced wherein a player will have to be guided safely by others to two or three different areas on various maps. Escort matches will be broken into rounds and the round is over if the escorted player dies. While Kill Confirmed and Drop Zone modes will be back in Black Ops 2, Team Defender and Infected will be left out this time around.
Black Ops 2 will also release alongside Call of Duty Elite 2.0. The upgraded version of Activision’s membership service will rename the combat statistic tracking record as “Elite Stats,” and a new lobby will be established for clan matches. Clan Tournaments can also be set up in Elite in version 2.0.
It also goes on to say that BO2 will be using the same point streak system as MW3 instead of the "kill streaks" of previous COD's, as well as a new version of the Pro Perk system.
So does this mean that they removed it because its untrue or because they want to prevent true leaked information, hopefully the latter of the two.
