According to a leak backed up by Eurogamer’s sources, the new Call of Duty will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The game is going to be released this fall.
Yesterday, Call of Duty leaker Okami tweeted a mock cover with the correct name. It’s fair to say it’s not official art.
As the Cold War name implies, the Black Ops series from Treyarch Studio goes back to its roots with a historical setting in this new installment. It is similar to the situation with Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward, which received a soft reset last year after several sequels.
Tuesday’s Call of Duty Warzone update revealed a series of teasers associated with blocked bunkers that hint at the Cold War situation. Players have already made their way inside and spotted a spy plane from the Cold War era. The bunker doors open with the use of the Red Access Card or by defeating another player.
Seems like this is some kind of fashion to announce new CoD game via “leaks.” Maybe Activision needs to think about other marketing tools.
