“This year, Call of Duty will return with its ninth instalment with Black Ops 2. As expected it will be following Treyarch's previous game Black Ops. Its release date is set for the 6th of November,” the release leaking post on the official Black Ops forum said before being hastily removed by Activision.
Offering further insight in to the Black Ops follow-on the claimed reports have suggested Black Ops 2 will see Treyarch and Activision introduce an all game mode dubbed ‘Escort’ which will feature alongside the return of the ‘Drop Zone’ and ‘Kill Confirmed’ offerings.
Describing the new gaming mode the leaked details have outed the ‘Escort’ features as: “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.”
