Earlier this week, it was rumored that this year’s Call of Duty will be titled “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.” While that rumor is still up in the air, a new one has surfaced stating that the Black Ops Cold War reveal will happen in Infinity Ward’s free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone!
According to VideoGameChronicle’s sources, Activision sees Call of Duty Warzone as the ideal platform to unveil this year’s Call of Duty game. If this rumor is true, then it adds further context as to why one of Treyarch’s popular scorestreaks the RC-XD can now be spotted in Warzone.
There’s also this interview with Infinity Ward Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki just a few weeks ago where he mentioned that Call of Duty Warzone will be the Call of Duty title that connects the different Call of Duty series together. Here’s an excerpt from his statement, “Call of Duty is a genre in itself, there are different branches in the Call of Duty tree, but they’re all connected in some ways. Warzone will be the through line that connects all of the different various sub-franchises of Call of Duty.”
Note that this is unverified, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, we can easily see this being the real deal given Activision would want to capitalize on Warzone’s millions of players to hype up this year’s Call of Duty; that and of course, more attention will be given to it than just outright announcing it, as this post clearly shows.
Will we see Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War or whatever this year’s Call of Duty to be revealed in Warzone before the month is up? I sure hope so.
Would you want this year’s Call of Duty game to be revealed in another Call of Duty game? Or would you rather Activision announces it in a more traditional way?
