Pre-order cards at Target claim 11/13
Retailer Target is now accepting pre-orders for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This alone isn’t a surprise, because pretty much all retailers are already taking pre-orders for Black Ops II. What is news is that these pre-order cards seem to officially now confirm the name of the title, which is Black Ops II, and the release date, which is November 13th, 2012.
While we have known for some time that we expected Activision to release the latest entry in the franchise in November, the date was not actually confirmed till now. Judging from the look of these pre-order cards, it does appear too legit to think that Target does not know what they are talking about. We told you last week that Activision is planning an announcement on cable network TNT during the NBA playoffs on May 1st.
It is believed that the next round of the Black Ops series takes place some 10 to 15 years in the future, with a connection to the previous Black Ops story; but few of the specifics are known at this time. It is expected that Activision will fill in more of the blanks during E3, and the upcoming trailer on the 1st will also help.
