Also available for : PC, PS3, Xbox360

Amazon may have outed the existence of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.<br/><br/>According to a report from French site <a target="_blank" href="http://www.gameblog.fr/news/27494-call-of-duty-black-ops-2-confirme-par-amazon" target="_blank">GameBlog</a> (translated by IGN host Naomi Kyle), Amazon France posted a product page for Black Ops 2 and soon pulled it from the site. <br/><br/><img src="http://xbox360media.ign.com/xbox360/image/article/121/1218982/aaaaaa_1329502620.jpg" /><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Making things more interesting, a <a target="_blank" href="http://www.gameblog.fr/news/27499-activision-blackliste-gameblog" target="_blank">follow-up post</a>, from GameBlog claims that the site was later asked by Activision to remove news of the listing. After refusing to do so, the site was reportedly told "not to present themselves" at a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron event that they'd previously been invited to. <br/><br/>This follows a report <a target="_blank" href="http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/121/1216099p1.html" target="_blank">earlier this year</a> that Activision had purchased blackops2.com. Activision has already <a target="_blank" href="http://games.ign.com/articles/121/1218375p1.html" target="_blank">confirmed that a new Call of Duty game is coming this year</a>, though the exact title of that game hasn't been confirmed.<br/><br/>Black Ops 2 is still only a rumor for now. We've reached out to Activision and will update with any comment we receive.<br/><br/>Thanks to <a target="_blank" href="http://www.gamespot.com/news/call-of-duty-black-ops-2-outed-by-amazon-report-6350628" target="_blank">Gamespot</a> for the tip.<br><br> <br/><br/>&#169;2012-02-17, IGN Entertainment, Inc.
