Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Stats Won’t Reset At Launch

According to Treyarch, the multiplayer stats for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will not reset when the game launches tomorrow. This isn’t typical when it comes to FPS titles, which is why we were a bit surprised. What does this mean exactly? Well, if you’ve somehow gotten an early copy of the game and have been playing multiplayer, when it officially launches tonight at midnight, the stats you’ve earned will not go back down to zero. Usually once a game like this releases the developers reset all player stats so that everyone starts on a level playing field. That won’t be happening this time around.

It’s no doubt that some players have gotten their hands on an early copy of the game. It happens all the time by some means or another. Right now Amazon is sending out pre-ordered copies of the game for the Wii U, which offers players no way to play the game. The system isn’t even out yet.

I don’t exactly know why Treyarch isn’t planning to reset the servers, but it sounds like a bad deal. I know that in a couple of weeks having the headstart won’t matter so much, but it does provide somewhat of an unfair advantage for new players. I’d hate to jump into a lobby on day one at starting level and see someone already ten levels ahead of me. Either way, it’s the developer’s call.
