Report: 2020's Call of Duty is Called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Treyarch's series goes back to the Cold War.

According to a new report, this year's Call of Duty is going back to the Cold War. 2020's Call of Duty will be called 'Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.'

This report comes from our sister site Eurogamer, whose sources back up a claim made by regular Call of Duty leaker Okami on Twitter. "This Autumn's Call of Duty is called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, according to a leak backed up by Eurogamer's own sources," reads the report.

Additionally, Eurogamer's report states that Call of Duty: Warzone's bunkers are leading up to a Cold War reveal. The bunkers began opening earlier this week in Warzone, and there's apparently more to come before the bunkers finally reveal their Cold War secrets, according to Eurogamer's report. Sounds like Warzone could be the staging area for Activision to reveal their new game.

You might recall that last year in May 2019, a report emerged that developer Treyarch was taking the reins of 2020's Call of Duty. A report at the time claimed that this would be a Cold War-set game, and that Treyarch would be taking over development duties from both Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software.

Ultimately, we'll have to wait and see for an official reveal from Activision surrounding Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. There's plenty of reveal events to come over the next four months, especially with the Summer Games Fest rolling on, but it's easy to imagine Activision putting on their own reveal event for 2020's Call of Duty.
