Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for the PlayStation Vita will flesh out the origins of Black Ops II's past and future story if various retail listings posted at Amazon, GameStop, and others today are accurate.
The listings state, "Before the future could be won, history had to be written," implying that Declassified will mostly take place before the near-future setting of Black Ops II. The Vita exclusive will have original fiction in a Special Ops story mode as well as online multiplayer.
Consistent across the listings is a $50 sticker price. The only other PS Vita title to be released for $50 was Sony's launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The game's developer is currently unknown, though Infinity Ward, Raven Software, Treyarch, Sledgehammer, and Neversoft are set by Activision as contributors to the Call of Duty series.
