Xbox 360 copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops II have managed to find their way into the hands of some consumers ahead of the game’s official November 13 release date. Inevitably, a deluge of video and live-streaming footage of Activision’s shooter has since appeared across the internet, easily accessible for anyone who can use Google.
Activision hasn’t offered any explanation as to how copies found their way into the wild, although design director David Vonderhaar from Black Ops II developer Treyarch commented on Twitter: “If you are going to live-stream the game early, which I don’t remotely recommend, you could at least be good at it. :P” He also promised official Black Ops II streams will appear in the next few days.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is coming to PC, 360 and PS3 on 13 November. The Wii U version arrives 18/30 November in the US/UK respectively.
