The Call of Duty brand proved itself as the first-person shooter game. Call of Duty, which has become a series, will come up with a new game. Activision, which is very satisfied with the sales, will release a new Call of Duty game at the end of this year. After all, there are annual instalments in the series since Call of Duty 2 (first released in 2003) in 2005. So the news of the new game does not surprise us. Maybe the content might surprise us. However, what do we already know about this? Which studio is taking the reins this time? And will this be a new generation title? We hope to explain everything you need to know about CoD: Black Ops Cold War.
What we know about the new CoD game
There has been a lot of talks recently about the next Call of Duty, especially considering the success of the free-to-play COD: Warzone, but some seem to be the width of the mark. As you know, Warzone adopted the Battle Royale style. This made a difference to the series. See what has changed in Campaign for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. For example, in late April online, a leak appeared that claimed the COD of 2020 was Call of Duty: Vietnam. Therefore, it would last in the 60s/early 70s and be determined during the Vietnam War (mostly). Of course, all of these are just rumours.
However, even though the time period seems correct, this is not the case. Instead, in late May, information from different sources, including COD leak Okami (via Twitter) and Eurogamer, indicated that the last name was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. And there has been no contradictory claim ever since. This makes the rumours strong.
Keen-eyed Warzone players also found some clues about this. The Cold War esque spy plane was discovered when players managed to use a PC mode to cut the walls of one of the game’s secretly locked bunkers. In addition, there was a nuclear warhead – another pointer to the era of global paranoia. No doubt it is an easter egg.
CoD: Black Ops Cold War release date
We don’t have the official confirmation of the game yet, so there is no actual release date yet. The content is completely based on predictions and rumours. However, it makes sense to predict that the next COD will be released between mid-October and early November. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) was released on October 25, 2019, Black Ops 4 released on October 12, 2018. This indicates that the new game may be released in October. Before them, World War II was released on November 3, 2017, and Endless War on November 4, 2016. We can say that the brand has a specific release date.
We expect to hear more next month, considering that Activision will usually open a trailer or details each year as soon as possible before E3. Although there is no E3 trade fair this year due to the worldwide process, we expect the publisher to adhere to a similar program.
