A thread on the official Black Ops forums, which has since been taken down, has supposedly revealed much on the still unannounced Black Ops 2 and its multiplayer component.
According to the original post, which has since made the rounds on the Internet, Treyarch's next installment in the series will be released on November 6 and contain a new Escort mission mode similar to Search and Destroy with game rounds "consisting of one life only," reports CVG.
Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return as well, but Team Defender and Infected will not, states the rumor.
If any of this is true, best be a bit cautious of potential spoilers should you choose to go through the link, in case anything new has been added to the forefront.
Obvious rumors from earlier in the month pegged the game for release in November as well.
