Beware: Activision will take action against early Call of Duty Black Ops 2 sellers

"We take street dates very seriously."

Posted By | On 12th, Nov. 2012

If you own a store selling Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, then you have to exercise caution. Activision will take “appropriate” action against stores selling the game before the street date.

“We take street dates very seriously,” Activision’s Peter Hepworth told MCV.

“The vast, vast majority has held the line. Everyone wants the big community event at midnight when the sales come through. I am aware of some exceptions. We are looking at appropriate action. But we are pleased to say we have got the support of all of the retail partners, and they are not causing these issues. They want to help us celebrate it at midnight tonight.”

Black Ops 2 is the next big entry in Activision’s massive Call of Duty franchise. Personally, I think if the game is as big as it is, some retailers may have already broken the street date.

The game releases in a few hours for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Earlier we reported one of the first reviews of the game which you can check out over here.

Our very own review will be going live soon. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more news and updates.
