Call of Duty: Black Ops stolen during black op

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:51PM EST

Earlier this week, news circulated that retail copies of the highly anticipated Activision title Call of Duty: Black Ops had been stolen from a printing press in Alabama. Reports were confirmed Wednesday as a video showing off a stolen disk along with a few moments of game play was posted to YouTube. If there were still any questions as to the authenticity of the disk, Activision answered those questions when it ordered the removal of the aforementioned video along with several images depicting the unreleased game. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be the latest addition to Activision’s wildly successful Call of Duty franchise. It is expected to break numerous sales records when it launches ahead of the holidays next month on November 9 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PCs. Hit the jump to watch the official game trailer.
