All the rumours have proven true and this year’s Call Of Duty is indeed a new Black Ops game set during the Cold War.
It’s been obvious for a long while now (as if a packet of crisps would lie) but this year’s new Call Of Duty is called Black Ops: Cold War and it’s going to get a full unveiling on Wednesday, 26 August.
The video above wasn’t just dumped on YouTube but was revealed as the end result of a complex ARG on website PawnTakesPawn.com, whose clues and puzzles fans have been trying to work out all month.
The trailer still doesn’t really say anything about the new game but Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov was a real person and all the other TV footage seems to be authentic, which suggests that the game will probably be set in the 1970s or thereabouts.
Despite the game only being announced now, as far as anyone knows Cold War is still due to be released this year, probably late October or November.
As already confirmed, the developers are Treyarch and Raven Software, which means that Zombies mode will almost certainly be in the game, alongside the normal story campaign and multiplayer.
Activision has also implied that Warzone will change significantly to represent locations from the game, a process which is likely to start before Cold War is released.
It’s also extremely likely that Cold War will come to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, although whether it will be a launch title for both consoles remains to be seen.
