Lately we are already seeing a lot of information about the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, appearing all over the internet.
Rumors have been flying for months about Call of Duty 2020, but it seems things are finally starting to come into focus. We know the game is being developed by Treyarch, with some help from Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, and we’ve heard for some time it will have some connection to the Black Ops universe and focus on the Cold War, with at least part of the game taking place in Vietnam. Last month there were even rumors the game would simply be titled Call of Duty: Vietnam.
In case you’ve not been following one of gaming’s worst-kept secrets in 2020, we first heard back in May that COD 2020 would be heading back to Vietnam, and would likely carry the ‘Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War’ moniker thanks to Jason Schreier.
Then, earlier this week, we saw some pre-alpha Call of Duty 2020 gameplay leak online. Now, because once a ship springs a leak it just keeps getting worse, we’ve seen a list of weapons and perks posted online via AltChar. Some pre-alpha COD 2020 Black Ops Cold War gameplay has leaked and we’re going to talk about it today. I can’t show the leaked gameplay due to obvious copyright reasons. I already showed it on my second channel and they striked it after literally 10 minutes of it being up… This video goes over some further details from the people responsible for this leak regarding Black Ops Cold War weapons, perks, multiplayer maps, killstreaks and more!
Well, according to proven CoD insider Okami, “Black Ops” will still be on the box art for this year’s game, which will apparently be titled Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War (obviously the following image is just a mockup made by Okami, not actual box art).
So yeah, we don’t know what exact punctuation they’ll use, but it seems likely Black Ops and Cold War will be in the title for this year’s CoD. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward recently opened up a series of previously locked bunkers in Call of Duty: Warzone, and what did they contain? How about a nuclear warhead and phones featuring voices speaking in Russian, which translate to…
“All forces, the base is captured! Change the encryption!” “Right away!” “Roger.” “They’re getting closer!”
Very Cold-War-ish stuff, no? Of course, we still don’t have any official confirmation of any of this from Activision or Treyarch, but it does seem like all the pieces are falling into place.
