Activision have officially confirmed that the new Call of Duty game will be coming sometime during Autumn 2020. The publisher declined to reveal any specific details just yet.
During their Q4 Investor Call, Activision have officially confirmed that a new Call of Duty game is currently in development and it is set to release sometime during Autumn 2020. As expected, the publisher did not reveal any additional details about the game. They also refused to confirm which development team is currently working on the title.
As you may know, some earlier rumours claimed that Call of Duty 2020 is actually Call of Duty: Black Ops 5. Apparently, Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games worked on the game for some time but the development turned out to be a real mess because of the tensions between the two studios, which is why Activision decided to put Treyarch in charge of the new title, with Raven and Sledgehammer acting as support studios.
The game is reportedly set during the Cold War and it spans the entire 40+ years, including Vietnam and Korean War. It is described to be even more gritty, gruesome and brutal than the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which had some pretty dark moments in its campaign.
Activision also said that they do not expect Call of Duty 2020 to generate as much revenue as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare did at launch but they said the same for Modern Warfare last year, the title which turned out to be the most successful Call of Duty on current-generation consoles.
Call of Duty 2020 will most likely launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC but it would not be surprising if the game is also a launch title for the next-gen consoles.
