The PC specs for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 reveal that the game will not be able to run on Windows XP systems. “Since we upgraded the engine to use DirectX11, Windows XP is no longer supported. It requires Windows Vista or later,” according to the game’s official website. That’d make Black Ops 2 the first Triple-A game to completely abandon the operating system, meaning that many others are bound to do the same in the near future.
But that news aside, here are the rest of the specs for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2:
OS: Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7
CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHz
Memory: 2GB for 32-bit OS or 4GB for 64-bit OS
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512 MB or ATI Radeon HD 3870 512 MB
