The soundtrack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, composed by veteran industry musician Jack Wall and featuring a theme written by The Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo composer Trent Reznor, will be released on iTunes on the game's launch day, publisher Activision announced today.

"The story surrounding the single player campaign was of paramount importance to the developers at Treyarch," said Wall in a press release. "I wanted to do my part to give that story as much emotional depth as I could with the music. I think the fans will really appreciate how deep the story is in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2."
