Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leaks as name of next series entry
A new leak has teased a new game in the iconic FPS franchise, Call of Duty. The leak has now been confirmed by Eurogamer which means the prospects are pretty good. The 2020 game in the series has not been officially announced, and this leak is actually really dumb. It’s just a teaser image for the first Black Ops game with basic text overlaid on it. The new game is apparently called Black Ops Cold War.
However, Okami is a well-known Call of Duty leaker, having previously confirmed other elements in previous games. They previously were able to leak certain maps in Modern Warfare’s third season and the existence of Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. This would all suggest that despite the low quality of the image, it could be legitimate.
Black Ops Cold War would be another entry in the franchise spin-off kicked off by Treyarch. The company has made five games in the series so far, with Black Ops 4 having been the most recent one. What this game will actually look like is a big mystery though.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
All we can do is make blind guesses about the new game right now. The Modern Warfare franchise has been making some major inroads in the multiplayer arena. With the rebirth of the game with the most recent Infinity Ward entry, gamers got a taste of what the return to form is like. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has brought out some interesting theories based on what the developers and fans expect, as well as what they have revealed so far.
Activision already confirmed last December that they have made a major splash with the most recent game. The most recent game is the most popular title since 2013, passing over $1 billion in total revenue. This bedrock will give the developer a ton of freedom to create a game that achieves its vision.
The gameplay of the new game is still a mystery. Black Ops Cold War could head in many different directions. The story of the Cold War is an intriguing one, one rife with suspicion and propaganda. It’s a safe bet that the new game will play on these ideas in its campaign, assuming it has one.
There are some elements that people expect to return to Black Ops in 2020. The Gunsmith system will very likely return, bringing some very interesting customization options to the new game. This will likely tie into the beloved multiplayer mode. It’s also a safe bet that the multiplayer mode will be expanded on past launch with seasonal events and new maps.
