    It 'tis the season of rumors and assumptions for this years winter time blockbusters. According to Computer and Video Games, the following information, claiming to reveal the game's release date and a load of multiplayer features, was first posted on the official Black Ops forums in a thread that was later taken down, and its cached version is unavailable. It was then reposted in another thread on Activision's forums, which was also killed off by the publisher, but its cache remains available (via MP1st). None of this information is confirmed, but there's no reason it couldn't be genuine as it all sounds feasible. The list is full of new modes but makes no mention of a new game engine.

    Here's the lot:

    Leaked Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Information
    •This year, Call of Duty will return with it's ninth installment with Black Ops 2. As expected it will be following Treyarch's previous game Black Ops. It's release date is set for the 6th of November.

    Game Modes
    •Escort, a new game mode similar to Search and Destroy however a live player must be escorted to one of three areas (or two depending on the map) without being killed. The match will have rounds, consisting of one life only.
    •Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return
    •Team Defender and Infected will not return

    Pointstreaks
    •Will follow from Modern Warfare 3's system
    •Larger emphasis on objectives
    •A bomb plant is worth 2 points
    •A neutral flag is worth 1, however an enemy flag is worth 2
    •flag assist capture is worth 1, a capture is worth 2
    •The Specialist Pointstreak has be modified. 2 kills now gets you 1 perk. The 4th kill gets you 2 more perks. The 6th kill gets you 3 more perks. The 8th Kill gets you 4 more perks. You do not get every perk when you reach 8 kills. Perks only become "Pro" when you have them Pro
    •RC XD will not return
    •Heat vision is a new Pointstreak reward. When you get the required points, you can activate this Pointstreak and your player pulls out a scope and attachés it to your weapon. This scopes main advantage is it's ability to detect enemies through most walls. Note, the scope can only be attached to primaries not including shotguns
    •Item Packages requires 5 points. Fall along side care packages and air drop traps. Features a list of package items only including ammo, mini gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, and body armor

    Prestiges
    •There will be 15 prestiges
    •There will be 50 ranks
    •Every two prestiges there is a 5 rank increase
    •The final prestige has 90 levels

    ELITE 2.0
    •ELITE is being fully incorporated into Black Ops 2
    •Combat record has been modified and re-named as ELITE Stats
    •There will be a specific lobby for clan matches (new way of leveling clans)
    •Clan Tournaments can now be implemented

    Removed
    •No MOAB or Nuke
    •No last stand
    •No death streaks
    •No flame thrower attachment

    Map Design
    •Map design and size will be following Black Ops not Modern Warfare 3

    Sniper Rifles
    •Improved sniper rifle usage.
    •No aim assist for any sniper rifle.
    •Less sway

    Customization
    •No longer just perk 1 chooses the players appearance
    •Appearance is a combination of all perks and type of Pointstreak being used.

    Hardcore
    •Larger emphasis on hardcore than ever before
    •No grenade launchers
    •Only vehicle guided rocket launchers permitted
    •Respawn timings decreased (for most modes)
    •1 bullet in the foot will no longer kill a person, a head or chest shot is usually required.
    •A person will now bleed out if severely injured.

    Perk System 2.0
    •The Perk Pro system has been upgraded
    •There is now 2 options a perk can advance to.
    •Both require different challenges to unlock
    •Once the desired Pro version is unlocked, the player can select that as their "Perk Pro".
    •Once selected, the only way to choose the other option is by entering prestige mode.
    •For example Perk slot 1 has the perk called Speed
    •Speed - Reduces the time taken to aim down the sight. Pro I - Swaps weapons faster. Pro II - Throws equipment faster

    Combat Training
    •Will be returning with vast improvements.
    •Difficulty is no longer based on how long the bots take to start shooting.
    •Bots now have an advance AI system
    •Similar to the behavior seen in the MW3 Spec Ops survival

    Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has said of this year's Call of Duty: "This year we expect to further expand our presence with the launch of an all-new epic first-person shooter title under the Call of Duty brand. From what we've seen to date, the game already looks fantastic and will bring meaningful innovations to the franchise."

    yea the CoD system is a mess. anual releases is just complete BS, it's just blatantly screwing the customer over, they change a couple character skins make a few new maps and call it a new game... its not.

    battlefield for life baby

    If it doesn't have dedicated servers then I don't see why anyone would play it. Aside from those who played MW3 and actually liked it pausing switching hosts and ending games randomly. What a fiasco.

    It has become more about the marketing and less about making the game more impressive. Blame it on consoles though. The tech they have to engineer games to run on is pathetic. This generation of consoles need to be replaced very badly. Wait 2-3 more years and tablets will have the same graphics power as that garbage.

    jeezz...here we go again. Thousands of people who have no clue will give them $60 for this lame game.
    They'll keep making one every single year with the same engine until the world ends or some terrorist group decided to blow up Treyarch.

    The feature list for this game is literally about the same size as the latest bf3 patch... That is pathetic.... So they are basically calling patches games.

    I liked blackops it was a lot better than MW3 which i brought and played for about a hour, I'm just hopping they upgrade the engine to DX10 or 11 this time around.

    I have played all of the COD games from MW2 - the reason I first started upgrading my pc, and I just didn't like black ops and think mw3 is too similar to it.

    I think what makes the game is game play which has got too rushed (I know it's supposed to be fast paced but there's a limit), and in my opinion since mw2 the levels bar a few have been rubbish

    I know all of them are based around the same engine but Blackops isn't any think like that turd of a game MW3 which is just MW2 will some new maps, World at war was also a really fun game which had a good atmosphere unlike MW1-3 which sucked.

    common guys, let's be honest. ALL those games are fun, you never get bored, the only thing that sucks is the EXTREMELY short single player missions which for 60$ 1 game is NOT worth it not even in 1 million years!

    Idk COD 4 MW was a good game honestly but they could of just created an expansion pack like how WOW has now plus black ops could of been melded into MW. Since Wizzard still uses COD4 as the benchmark to represent COD MW2/MW3.
