Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Promo Poster Dates Full Reveal on May 2

Xbox 360

A retailer is reporting that ahead of the official Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 reveal, promo posters were issued from Activision.

In a leak to thisisxbox a few weeks ago, we mentioned:

“New details leaked to us today state that this years iteration will be released in Standard, Hardened and for the first time ever an “ELite Edition” with an RRP of £49.99, £69.99 and £99.99 respectively in the UK on November 13th 2012. This replaces the Prestige Edition, but is set at a higher price than Modern Warfare 3′s Hardened Edition which included the Elite Subscription bundle and other content for £79.99. Presumably the Hardened Edition for this years game will contain bonus in-game content, booklets and a keep-sake – the Elite Edition will provide a few more unannounced Elite extra’s with an added one year subscription for the Elite service included.”

We were also told previously that pre-orders are expected to open after a reveal around May 4th. As the promo poster confirms a reveal on May 2nd 2012, opening pre-orders around May 4th also seems very likely as per our leak last month. With Halo 4 now being confirmed as a November 6th release worldwide, it seems more viable than ever now that November 13th for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 could be a reality so as not to go directly head to head with another triple AAA title in the same week?

When official announcements are in from Activision, we’ll keep you informed – and here is the promo poster obtained from AGB today.
