There have been rumors and more or less credible speculations about the next Call of Duty feature for a long time, and now we have finally received a confirmation from an official source. It reports among others GameSpot.
In the form of a short teaser that you can see at the top of the article, Activision has now revealed that the next Call of Duty game will be formally unveiled on August 26, ie Wednesday next week.
The teaser also confirms what recent rumors have suggested, namely that the game will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and has the Cold War as its setting, similar to the first Call of Duty: Black Ops game from 2010.
Otherwise, the video contains archive clips related to the Cold War, and we also learn that the game is “inspired by real events”, but beyond this, the teaser does not reveal much more about the game itself.
According to previous rumors, the game’s action spans more than 40 years during the Cold War, and will reportedly include both the Vietnam War and the Korean War. It will also be darker than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
As before, Treyarch Studios is behind it, the studio that has made all the Black Ops titles in the series so far. Co-developer Raven Software, for his part, has collaborated with both Treyarch and Infinity Ward on several other Call of Duty games as an assistant developer, but this time the studio has a more active role.
