Today the twitter-verse got all excited as a video started doing the rounds of a rumored “hacked” Black Ops II build. In all the hullabaloo the various outlets “reporting” on this build failed to do a little fact-checking. Like, “hey, people who actually made the game and the build, what’s the story, is this for reals?”
But we did.
So, I asked Activision about this “hack” video, and what, in fact, it was. And this is what they had to say:
“The video posted is from a development demo build, using developer tools meant for testing. The retail build was never accessed or compromised.”
So sounds like a lot of breathless posturing over a video of something that the devs used for testing, which isn’t in the final game, and isn’t representative the actual final product.
So, calm down folks, not long to wait until the actual game is revealed in its entirety.
