A bit of a warning for those who pre-ordered the game.



Seems that Activision won't allow UK retailers to ship Black Ops 2 pre-orders until Monday, November 12th, so your copy may get delayed if you didn't choose a next day delivery.

Well, here's a little warning for those who pre-ordered the long-anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in the UK (but of course, this could also apply in North America).
