Speaking with Activision social media manager Dan Amarich on his One of Swords blog, Nihilistic Software CEO Robert Huebner confirmed that the PS Vita shooter will launch alongside the console version of Black Ops 2 on November 13.
As a bonus, in North America the game will include a free download code for the PSP title Call of Duty: Roads to Victory. The free game download has not been confirmed for Europe at this time.
Black Ops: Declassified will also be available as part of a PS Vita system bundle in both North America and Europe that includes the game, a Wi-Fi PS Vita system and a 4GB memory card.
The game is said to have a focus on multiplayer, featuring 4v4 matches and short missions that add background to the story in Black Ops 2.
"Declassified is not about the big campaign storyline and huge cinematics," Huebner said.
"It's more focused on the multiplayer essence of Call of Duty and bringing that to a portable device as completely as possible, and in bringing short, objective-based missions and score-driven gameplay with lighter story elements to create what we call the Operations missions.
"Then adding in some bonus modes like Time Trials and Hostiles to make a product that delivers the core Call of Duty experience in a mobile package."
"The goal was not to make a product that is a port of any past or present Call of Duty game, but to make a tailored experience for the Vita that adds new content and new background about Woods and Mason's careers for players who have played the original Black Ops and will almost certainly be picking up Black Ops 2."
Despite the focus on multiplayer, it was recently revealed that Black Ops: Declassified will not include a Zombies mode, one of the console game's most popular features.
Black Ops: Declassified will be available exclusively on PS Vita the same day Black Ops 2 releases on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. A Wii U version will follow.
