The game's story will jump between two timelines, with the primary one set in 2025. "Most" of the game will be set in 2025.
It is a direct sequel to Black Ops.
We will find out definitively what happened at the end of Black Ops—presumably, Mason didn't actually kill JFK, given that he's out in the field in Black Ops II. But who knows?
The second timeline will be set in the late 80's near the end of the Cold War.
The story will be narrated by Black Ops character Frank Woods, now an old man. Apparently he didn't die at the end of Black Ops after all.
In the 80's timeline, players will take on the role of Black Ops protagonist Alex Mason.
In 2025, players will take on the role of David Mason, who is the son of Alex Mason. The father/son relationship will play a part in the story. Hello daddening of video games!
In the game's fiction, there is a second Cold War happening between China and the US due to the scarcity of Rare Earth Elements used to make tech devices and military weapons.
The story is based on a real-world possibility, as China (according to the folks at Treyarch) currently controls 95% of the rare earth elements in the world. Topical!
Many of the real-world hooks are inspired by P.W. Singer's Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century.
A good deal of the 1980's action will take place during proxy wars in Central America. Tropical!
