Report: Call of Duty 2020 Tagged as Call of Duty Vietnam, Possibly Not a Reboot

Share this:

While we’ve heard multiple rumors that Call of Duty 2020 will be developed by Treyarch, we’ve also heard rumors mention that it’ll be a reboot of sorts for the studio’s Black Ops franchise. Well, a new report has surfaced today, and it’s from a reliable source.

Former Kotaku reporter and reliable industry leaker Jason Schreier answered people on Twitter today, and mentioned that from what he’s heard “thrown around a couple of times,” this year’s Call of Duty is known as Call of Duty Vietnam.

Schreier also mentions that he doesn’t think that it’s a reboot at all.

Mind, Schreier admits that he’s not familiar with Black Ops’ lore and story and whatnot, and if you’ve played the first Black Ops, you’ll know that it does feature Vietnam, so it could very well be a soft reboot of sorts like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 was to the original Modern Warfare.

When asked whether this year’s Call of Duty is on track for release again this year, he mentions that for now, it is, but we don’t know what’s happening in the coming months (and yes, this is all due to the global COVID-19 pandemic playing a part in it).

Remember, nothing mentioned here has been confirmed by Activision or Treyarch. Heck, we’re not 100 percent sure Treyarch is the one developing this year’s Call of Duty title, even. though it does seem like they are.

What do you think? Would you want a Call of Duty: Vietnam game or a Black Ops reboot? If we do get a Black Ops reboot of some sort, it seems one person we can count on not being there is Sgt. Frank Woods actor James C. Burns who confirmed he’s not involved with the franchise in any way.
