Are you already looking forward to this year’s Call of Duty? If so, the Call of Duty 2020 reveal isn’t that far off given Activision usually reveals the Call of Duty game of the year in May for the past few entries in the franchise (Modern Warfare 2019, Black Ops 4, etc.).
This sentiment isn’t lost on us as we’re expecting this year’s Call of Duty to be revealed sometime this month. Even Call of Duty super fansite Charlie Intel thinks the same way too.
Welcome to May.
Reveal for the new Call of Duty game should happen this month.
What are you hoping to see from the new Treyarch game?

In addition to that, YouTuber Long Sensation who leaked the name of Call of Duty 2019 as just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, tweeted this way back in March (which we reported on back then).

While we reported on Call of Duty 2020 being called Call of Duty: Vietnam just a few weeks ago, it seems that title is off the table according to reliable reporter and industry insider Jason Schreier.
fwiw I poked around and as of right now I don't think "COD: Vietnam" is the final title

Given the generation we’re in, I don’t think using the name of a country as the title of a first-person shooter will fly — even if it does reference or show the Vietnam War.
Bear in mind that the Call of Duty 2020 reveal could be pushed back from taking place this month due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but for now, we’re still expecting this year’s entry, which is heavily rumored to be in development at Treyarch, to make its debut sometime in May.
