The rumors online about the leaked release date for the next series installment of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 have hit the fan. Gamepur.com, apparently had taken a screen shot of the ad on a Spanish online retailer named Fnac, right before it was taken down. These rumors have then suggested that the date of November 12 would be without question, but have seemed to have misinterpreted the ad by a long shot.
Despite the little amount of information on the screenshot taken, which is nothing but the new title and the supposed date of Activision’s next release, the November 12 date does bring up some questions. First of all, it is clear that on the ad that Gamepur.com pulled, the number 12 has an apostrophe right in front of it, which usually indicates the number after it, in this case ‘12 to be the year of release not a day of the month. This would also eliminate the confusion of Black Ops 2 being released on a Monday, when usually games tend to be released on Tuesdays. The other interesting thing about the image itself is that the font that the date is printed does not match the font of the game title, which could possibly suggest ad manipulation and even further compromise the credibility of the ad itself.
