While there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that a new Call of Duty game is coming out this year, more and more evidence points to this year’s iteration as Black Ops 2.
In saying this, the rumor train hasn’t stopped and this time, it seems that the game’s multiplayer features might have been outed, too!
The supposed “leak” was posted on the official Black Ops forums but it was taken down by Activision. Fortunately for us, another user also started another thread regarding the info posted and while Activision also took that thread down, it’s Google cache version survived!
Don’t forget that this is still a rumor until confirmed by Activision or Treyarch, but it is kind of suspicious of them to take the thread down – which adds even more fuel to this rumor, in my opinion.

Again, before any of you spread the news like wildfire, keep in mind that this is still considered a rumor – albeit a rather extensive one at that.
Is Treyarch making the necessary changes to prevent Black Ops 2 from getting stale or are the changes not too believable? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
