Activision has confirmed the next Call of Duty, titled Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War, and will reveal the game in Call of Duty: Warzone on August 26th. If you can’t be fussed to load up Warzone then aside from waiting on the trailer to hit YouTube, simply tune into Gamescom Opening Night Live. Host Geoff Keighley has confirmed a “world premiere new look” at the shooter.
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War is being developed by Treyarch and Raven Software, and according to rumors, it serves as a reboot of the Black Ops franchise. Not much else is known about it, save for all the Cold War connections, but recent art work teases the possibility of two protagonists. So that’s something.
It remains to be seen if Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will still release this year, much less for Xbox Series X and PS5 along with current-gen consoles. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime. Gamescom Opening Night Live takes place on August 27th at 11 AM PT and will feature 38 games in total (though they won’t all necessarily be new games).
Don't miss a world premiere new look at @CallofDuty Black Ops – Cold War.
