It’s no secret by now that Call of Duty pros aren’t that happy with how Infinity Ward has handled the weapon balance and competitive side of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While Activision has been mum on Call of Duty 2020 so far, it’s been heavily rumored that it’s being developed by Treyarch, and will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Over a thread on the Call of Duty Competitive subreddit, pro player Chance (using chancewm as his verified Reddit username) of the Florida Mutineers have not only confirmed that this year’s Call of Duty game is being made by Treyarch, but that Call of Duty pros are meeting with the dev team to discuss competitive play.
Stay hopeful guys. The devs over at Treyarch are really interested in making next year a great year for competitive ❤️ and I’m being 100% serious
Nope. Just meetings w the devs to discuss “competitive philosophy” 👍🏻 there’s more to it of course and tbh I don’t even know if I was allowed to share what I just shared. I know how hopeless some of you are but all I want is for us as a community to get excited and to get behind and support the devs over at Treyarch ❤️ spread positive energy guys
While the revelation that Treyarch is making this year’s Call of Duty is hardly surprising given we got our first gameplay leak that pointed to Treyarch’s series of Call of Duty games, the fact that pros are meeting with the devs is a good sign. Of course, let’s hope this means the casuals who play multiplayer will benefit from these meetings as well.
Given the recent developments, we’re assuming we’ll hear about Call of Duty 2020 officially soon.
