In year of pretty massive video game leaks, Call Of Duty 2020 might just take the crown. Several industry sources and dataminers have claimed several times over the last few months that the upcoming game is being developed by Treyarch, and that it's a Black Ops reboot called Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Just in case you needed any more proof that this was almost definitely what Call Of Duty 2020 is, there's been another leak. New images shared by TheGamingRevolution show an apparent Call of Duty/Doritos advertising campaign that we can likely expect to roll out when the new game launches later this year. So just to reflect on what's happening right now, the Black Ops Cold War logo has leaked because of a packet of crisps. Outstanding.
Past reports claimed that Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will take the franchise back to the 1960s. It's being compared to 2019's Modern Warfare, in that it's basically a gritty reboot that will ignore that last few Black Ops games to tell a new story.
A separate image from the Doritos crossover also seems to confirm that the game is still on track to release in October, which should put an end to the rumours that the new entry won't release this year after all.
Of course, it's hard not to be a little concerned about Call Of Duty 2020. Activision usually announces its next instalment in May, but we're obviously well past that point. It's not entirely clear why the publisher hasn't just revealed the game at this stage, although there's been speculation that the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted whatever plans were originally in place.
Whatever the case, we can't be too far off an official update at this point. With Season 5 of Call Of Duty: Warzone set to bring in some major changes to the battle royale in August, it's likely that whatever Infinity Ward has planned for Verdansk will feed into the big reveal of the new game.
There are also rumours that PlayStation will be holding another PS5 gameplay presentation next month. Activision often works with Sony when it comes to revealing more details on Call Of Duty titles, so it's entirely possible that the publisher could surprise us with a first-look at the game, before PlayStation shares more information at its own event. All signs point to August right now, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
