It would appear that the next Call of Duty game will be going back to BlackOps Kept in mind CoD leaker Okami posted a mockup of the title on Twitter, and Eurogamer has actually verified the leak with their own sources. The upcoming game, which is prepared for an August release, will be entitled Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Black Ops is something of a fan favorite for Call of Duty fans, although some of the radiances were lost when the game moved from historic settings into more futuristic ones. The Cold War title would highly suggest that we are going back to the past, to a time when the world waited to see if America and Russia would clean us all out in a show of nuclear brinksmanship. Enjoyable times.
How Activision plans to manage the release remains to be seen. It is not likely that they will want to walk far from the success, and facilities, that they have actually developed for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, so it would not be unexpected to see the new title launched as an addition to the recognized service.
To back this up, the secret bunkers in Warzone would appear to have something to do with the ultimate Cold War expose. The bunkers have actually been a secret because the battle royale mode first released. Industrious players have already handled to wiggle their way past locked doors to find some nuclear warheads.
This might all end up being an extremely intriguing expose, and a good roadmap for what we can anticipate from Call of Duty as a series, now that Activision appears intent of going the live service path with the games.
