Activision has yet to formally confirm platforms for Black Ops III, but the Call of Duty website's own source code previously revealed Xbox One, PS4, and PC as the game's platforms. Intriguingly, the Call of Duty website now lets you sign in with your Nintendo account, but Activision won't say if Black Ops III is coming to Wii U.
The GameStop promotional material also points out, "Actual platform availability and launch date(s) to be determined." A November 6 release date for Black Ops III makes a lot of sense, considering it's early in November, which is when Activision has released new Call of Duty games for years now.
Separately, a source told Kotaku that the leaked material pictured in this post will be distributed at GameStop stores this coming Sunday, April 26. That's the same day that Activision plans to formally unveil Black Ops III by way of an official reveal trailer.
Earlier this week, Activision released a new live-action trailer for Black Ops III that touted the game's focus on biohacking. Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal responded to this video by sending funny cat pictures to Activision.
