A recent report suggests that the 2020 Call of Duty game will be a Black Ops sequel that takes place during the Cold War.- Advertisement -
The report in question originates from a Call of Duty leaker known as Okami. While Okami did not provide much information about the reported Black Ops game, he did tweet a quickly photoshopped image of a cover for a project simply known as Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.
Okami has accurately reported several Call of Duty leaks in the past, and his implication that the next Call of Duty title will focus on the Cold War has been backed up by Eurogamer who claim that their own sources can verify similar information. Kotaku has also previously reported that Activision intends for the next CoD title to focus on that era, so the game’s setting has honestly been an open secret for quite some time now. That being said, you should treat this information as well-supported speculation until an official announcement is made.
Sadly, we don’t know much more about the next Black Ops title at this time. Naturally, the name of this game makes it relatively clear that it will focus on the Cold War: a period of extreme political tension between the United States, the Soviet Union, and both countries’ allies which is generally considered to have lasted from 1947 to 1991.
