List of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Features ‘Leaked’ (RUMOR)

There’s supposedly slightly more evidence supporting the theory that the next entry into Activision’s Call of Duty series will be Black Ops 2, as a supposed list of multiplayer features has supposedly leaked onto the Internet and supposedly been squashed or otherwise hidden supposedly by Activision.

Excuse me if I sound a bit incredulous. Apparently the list of multiplayer features popped up on a Call of Duty: Black Ops forum thread and the person posting them said he or she “found them online.” According to a post on MP1st, the feature list twice appeared on threads, and twice was disappeared by Activision. The first thread is lost to the ether; the second, apparently, was cached by Google.

We’re going ahead and listing the features below and you can judge for yourself. We do know that Activision is rolling out a new version of its Call of Duty Elite service, Elite 2.0, with the next CoD title. We also know it’s coming out this year, likely in November, because there’s no way Activision is letting a year go buy without collecting the CoD toll from gamers who love their military shooters.

Anyway, put on your skeptics’ hats…now.

    Looks like another refreshed Activision console hit, with some minor mechanics changes and reskins, its sure to be the money maker and GOTY candidate that it is. With features like IWNET LAG, BAD HOST/ADMINS DLC, VAC, HACKS, CHEATERS, PADDERS, RESULTING IN A SKEWED FARCE O F A STAT SYSTEM, along with limited or no mod Tool SDK support on the PC, and the next Activision COD variation sure to release on its tail in less than a year afterwards, seriously who can resist such a stellarly improved repeat products?
