Players who have attained Black Ops 2 legally won't have their stats reset at launch if they play the game before its officially released.
"FAQ. Will people be reset? A. Read the previously linked Security/Enforcement policy. Unless you are a bad person doing bad things, no."
Some retailers have broken the street date, but users won't be punished for this. Vonderhaar confirmed Treyarch will know if you've picked the game up by illegal means.
"We know if you cheated. GG SCRUB CHEATER. DQ PERMA-BAN."
PC users will also see the game's FOV upgraded from 80 to 90 post launch.
Who's picking this up, then?
