Call of Duty fans are eagerly awaiting the official game reveal for 2020.
Ahead of Activision’s big announcement, one industry insider may have revealed the theme for this year’s Call of Duty.
A tweet posted by industry insider Okami appears to suggest that this year’s Call of Duty will be a new Black Ops game.
Furthermore, the tweet – which you can see below – features the original Black Ops artwork with a Cold War subtitle.
This would tie into previous rumours that the new Call of Duty will encompass conflicts like the Vietnam War.
Likewise, the use of the original artwork suggests it will be a reboot or reimagining of the first Black Ops.
Activision and Infinity Ward did something similar with the Modern Warfare franchise, which was rebooted in 2019.
It’s little to go on, but at this stage fans are clinging on to any new Call of Duty hints and leaks.
Fortunately, fans shouldn’t have long to wait for the new Call of Duty game to be fully unveiled by Activision.
Based on previous Call of Duty game reveals, the new COD should be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Last year’s entry was announced in full on May 30, so it’s possible the 2020 Call of Duty could be unveiled as early as next week – maybe Friday, May 29.
Black Ops 4, meanwhile, was announced in March 2018, but wasn’t fully unveiled until May 17.
While plans may have been pushed back due to coronavirus complications, all signs point to an imminent Call of Duty 2020 reveal.
Express Online will be on hand with all of the information when it officially drops.
One thing we do know about this year’s Call of Duty is that it won’t abandon the Warzone Battle Royale mode introduced earlier this year.
In a recent interview with GamerGen, Activision’s Taylor Kurosaki suggested that Warzone will come to PS5 and Xbox Series X.
“I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time, so as soon as those new systems are out and available I’m sure we’ll support them,” he said.
The sentiments were echoed during the Activision earnings call, as the company promised to support Warzone with new content and new modes in upcoming updates.
