Leaked Photo Claims First Look At Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2's Box Art

Evidence continues to mount that a Call of Duty: Black Ops sequel is oscar mike.

First there was an Amazon listing. Then there was an odd blackballing. Then, there was what looked to be a Black Ops 2 teaser poster surfaced — after that, a GameStop teaser website. Now?

Now, a photo depicting the game's box art has hit the internet. The box art does resemble the silhouetted art on the teaser site; however, it is of a higher resolution.

The box shows the European version of the game. In Italian, the front says, "Prenota Subito" or "Reserve Now". In the corner, it adds notes, "One Per Customer."

The photo does send off all sorts of warning bells: there's a convenient lens flare, which is a technique fakers use to pass off phony games; the game box looks like a PS2 case and not an Xbox 360 box.

Yet, the font matches up with the new Call of Duty font for the new CoD, and the picture does depict a high-resolution image of the image teased on the GameStop page. And that image shows Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

    So basically what this article is saying is that someone could have taken the "Call of Duty" title and any generic military-dude-with-a-gun and made a case for some game called Black Ops? Scandalous.

    What is this "Call of Duty" anyway? Is it some amazing game with a gripping storyline, with new and innovative gameplay features and elements?

      I heard that you shoot people in it. And then you go online and shoot more people, except they whine at you back with high and shill voices as they criticize your sexuality.


    No, but it sells, making it news. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the aim of this website is it not? So many bitter and cynical guys follow Kotaku. If you hate it so much, go to some other good gaming site. I think Kotaku is great; a mixed bag, but great.

    The Xbox header up the top is also the old one. It no longer says "Xbox live" but has a green swirl instead.
