Fake Black Ops 2 Beta Video is Fake
We’re going to go ahead and nip this one in the bud before it runs wild. Shortly after reading this you’re likely going to see a video making its way around the internet proclaiming that it is showing the menu screen for the Black Ops 2 beta and includes a Zombies Campaign Mode. The video is going to go viral and some of the other gaming sites may even pick it up.
Doubting the credibility of this video, we decided to look into its validity before posting it, rather than after. As expected, the video turned out to be fake. The evidence? The logo used in the menu is the same logo that was created on charlieintel.com (a Call of Duty fansite) last year. Charlieintel.com is not responsible for the fake beta video, but explains (and can prove) that they created the logo last year in photoshop and it was ripped from their site to be included in the video.
Unless Treyarch is now in the business of getting their game logos from quick photoshops done on fansites, we can chalk this one up to another fake fan-made video.
UPDATE: The video has already been pulled from youtube, so you don’t even get to see it :\ This will probably lead to even more people believing that it’s real, but it’s not.
UPDATE 2: Here’s another embed of the video..
