Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 stats will not be reset at launch

User who have played Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 prior to its release tomorrow will not have their stats reset, Treyarch game design director David Vonderhaar confirmed in a series of tweets.

According to Vonderhaar, players with legitimate copies of the title should simply "Enjoy the game," while those who accessed the title through less than virtuous means should be aware of Treyarch's player banning policy.

"FAQ. Will people be reset? A. Read the previously linked Security/Enforcement policy." wrote Vonderhaar, referring to a recently released security and enforcement policy revealing the ways in which users could get banned. "Unless you are a bad person doing bad things, no."

As described in the written policy, Treyarch will police the game with two types of bans: temporary bans, which last from two days to two weeks, and permanent bans, which are lasting and final.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will release on Nov. 13 in North America on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
