It’s no secret that the Call of Duty series is an annual release from Activision. But we don’t know when the next one will come out this year, except take a stab that it’ll be out close to 2020’s end. Now, we sort of know.
According to a recent leak via Charlie Intel, the upcoming first-person shooter that comes with the mouthful “Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War” moniker will be out 13th November. It’s also a direct sequel to the original Black Ops.
Datamined description below (via ModernWarzone Twitter):
The iconic Black Ops series is back with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War—the direct sequel to the original and fan-favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Black Ops Cold War will drop fans into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. Nothing is ever as it seems in a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more.
As elite operatives, you will follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Descend into the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason and Hudson and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.
The game’s multiplayer reveal is slated for 9th September, so you’ll know how the game’s key features will pan out.
We suspect it’s just going to be an extension of 2018’s Black Ops IIII, but we could be wrong. Oh, and probably a beta just before November for the whole “servers testing” phase of things.
