Early copies of Black Ops 2 have leaked already. Just like many previous Call of Duty titles, such as last years Modern Warfare 3, early copies of Black Ops 2 have been sold a full 2 weeks before the games official launch date. Gameplay footage featuring zombies mode has popped up on YouTube, although many of those videos are being removed.
Some individuals who have gotten early copies are looking to sell them online and elsewhere hoping to score a huge profit. Crazier things have happened, and it’s likely these people will make a killing off folks trying to score the game early.
While Activision and Treyarch are no doubt upset with the early leak, it’s unlikely that anyone who plays the game early will be punished with an online ban. However, a full leaderboard reset is bound to happen when the game launches on Nov. 13th.
