Rumours are already starting to circulate about next year’s Call of Duty game. And word has it that Treyarch has had to step into the breach to keep things on schedule. This potentially means we can expect a Black Ops title a year earlier than planned – something a further leak is confirming.
According to YouTuber TheLongSensation, the next title in the series will follow a similar logic to this year’s Modern Warfare reboot by being titled Call of Duty: Black Ops. Although, they’re also toying with the idea of Call of Duty: Black Ops V. But you get my drift – it’s a Black Ops game enjoying a reboot of its own.
According to said reports, the story will extend over forty decades. It will incorporate the Cold War era (its primary setting), but also venture into the realms of the Korean and Vietnam Wars. And will be more hard-hitting than the Modern Warfare spinoff, which is saying something.
Now, you might be wondering why you should trust this user. Well, the answer is because they’ve got their facts right before – correctly announcing the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot before it was common knowledge. But Kotaku have also previously implied this was the route being taken as the initial idea had hit a brick wall during development.
Hence Treyarch stepping in to do what they do best.
Are you happy to hear we’re getting Call of Duty: Black Ops V a whole 12 months before we should have been? Or is there another Call of Duty theme you’d have liked the have seen before it? Press to talk in the comments box below, soldier!
Call of Duty 2020 has been under 2 names thus far.
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Black Ops V
Set during the Cold War. Spans the entire 40+ years and incs Vietnam and Korean War. Described as even more gritty and gruesome than Modern Warfare.
I’m not joking.
