Following the recent leaks of promotional materials including displays and posters, it appears the box art for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the suspected next game in the franchise, has leaked. The news comes from an anonymous Twitter account that provides updates on the Call of Duty franchise, @MW3Updates. The tweet which revealed the supposed box art is as follows:
Supposed promotional Black Ops 2 case. What do you think, legit or fake?
According to Kotaku, the box art appears to be a display copy for a European version of the game, with "Reserve now" and "Only for display" written in Italian. Additionally, the 18-and-up rating from PEGI, the European game rating organization, appears in the lower-left corner. As Kotaku notes, however, the box isn't the typical green case used for Xbox 360 games, although display boxes sent to retailers don't always use that case.
The "world reveal" of the next Call of Duty game will take place during TNT's broadcast of the NBA playoffs on May 1, according to the official Call of Duty website. If the previous announcements of Call of Duty games are any indication, that means a gameplay trailer for the next game will after the third quarter of the game being played on TNT that day. Activision has not yet revealed the name of the next Call of Duty game, which is believed to be a direct sequel to Black Ops.
