2020's Call of Duty has been heavily rumored over the last few months, and now an official name for the next game in the franchise looks to have leaked. A Doritos marketing campaign looks to have let slip the name of the next Call of Duty game: Black Ops Cold War.
Over the weekend, ModernWarzone.com claimed to have seen the image pictured just below, which is part of a Doritos marketing campaign around the next Call of Duty game. This Call of Duty game is allegedly called Black Ops Cold War, according to the marketing material, something that Eurogamer first reported earlier this year.
You can clearly see the logo in the top half of the promotional materials from Doritos. Then there's the image below, which also comes from ModernWarzone.com. If you look in the fine print in the lower half of the advert, it states that the promotional campaign kicks off on October 5, leading some to speculate that this could be the release date for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (thanks, Eurogamer).
Earlier this month, a mysterious Activision shooter called The Red Door surfaced on both the Microsoft Store and the PSN Store database. Dataminers alleged that this was an internal alpha for 2020's Call of Duty, and shortly afterwards they turned up code names for multiplayer maps in The Red Door, which included 'KGB,' and 'Black Sea,' and 'Moscow,' among others. They sure sound like they're Cold War related.
The 2020 Call of Duty rumors roll on. A report from earlier this year at VideoGamesChronicle year claims that the next Call of Duty will be slowly revealed through Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale spin-off of Modern Warfare. Perhaps we should be keeping an eye on Warzone for an official reveal at some point soon.
