Call of Duty's UK webpage confirms the long rumored sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops.


The website has this info about the game: "Pushing the boundaries of what fans have come to expect from the record-setting entertainment franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare. Pre-order today."

The website shows the game's world reveal YouTube trailer, which is currently private and cannot be viewed. The trailer seems to show what looks like L.A. being attacked.

Last night, leaked Call of Duty: Black Ops II screenshots seemed to confirm the game's near future setting. The official site shows spaces for two screenshots; they are currently blocked with the words "Coming Soon". The images could be the leaked screenshots.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is slated for a November 2012 release.
