As is typical with annual Call of Duty releases, this year’s entry has leaked ahead of an official announcement. According to a tweet that has since been corroborated by Eurogamer, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War should launch later this year.
The name first appeared on Twitter, and Eurogamer has since heard the same news from its sources. This means that much like 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, developer Treyarch is going back to where Call of Duty: Black Ops started–a stark change from the future-based warfare the Black Ops series traded in with its third and fourth instalments.
The Cold War setting has already been teased in Call of Duty: Warzone, with reported plans for the battle royale to eventually reveal the game in its entirety. Players have found a Cold War spyplane by glitching through walls. The reveal might have tied into the ongoing mystery behind the many vault doors in Warzone currently.
