Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the direct sequel to 2010’s Black Ops, and the third overall instalment in the Black Ops continuity established with World at War in 2008.
Black Ops 2’s campaign takes place across two timelines, one in the late 1980s, which focuses on Frank Woods and Alex Mason, the two main protagonists from the first game, and the other in 2025, where players assume control of Mason’s son, David.
