There is some news that it’s looking like CoD 2020 will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. CoD 2020 is not a reboot at all, it’s taking place immediately after the original Black Ops game. The most possibly surprising leak of the game so far is that it has been discovered that the game is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops game. Fans have been wondering when exactly the game would be set. If these leaks are accurate, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is part of the same narrative as the other titles in the series.
It’s hard to argue the legitimacy of this leak as well. It makes sense that we could find the details for the game in the files. Because we could find the game’s description within the Modern Warfare game files as well. That is because the August 24th update is preparing for the Games of Summer Event in Modern Warfare. Also, the upcoming reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
The game’s description confirms Black Ops Cold War’s exact setting. Which will “drop fans” into the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. The appearance of historical figures is also confirmed, though exactly who remains unclear. Perhaps Yuri Bezmenov could make an appearance after his large role in the reveal trailer.
Call od Duty: Black Ops Cold War cast has been confirmed
Globe-trotting missions will return to Black Ops: Cold War as well. This mission is bringing players to East Berlin, Vietnam, and the “Soviet KGB headquarters”. In even bigger news, however, the game’s cast has been confirmed. And is certain to please longtime fans of the series. First and foremost, Frank Woods will be playable, though this is more surprising to remember that a Modern Warfare character pack for Woods is supposedly on the way. What players did not know, however, is that fan-favorite characters Jason Hudson and Alex Mason will return in the campaign.
Seeing both characters return is certainly good news. And their return explains the game’s ability to feature missions around the world. The CIA missions can make up one side of the story, whereas Woods and Mason’s adventures could take up the other portions. However, that it is unlikely for Mason and Woods to cross paths given the events of Black Ops 2. When Mason rescues Woods during that game, it is 1986, and it is the first time he realizes he is alive since the events of the original Black Ops. If the teaser trailer will not available in China is any indication, players can expect some controversial missions featuring these protagonists, much like the ones early on in the series.
The description also states that the antagonist will be “a shadowy figure named Perseus”. And confirms that there is a Zombies mode in the game, but don’t expect to see Zombies during the Black Ops Cold War reveal in Warzone tomorrow. Regardless, this leak is an incredibly promising bit of news for fans of the original Black Ops campaigns. Woods, Hudson, and Mason are all precious characters. And seeing their story continue to be told as opposed to being rebooted is an awesome surprise.
The Reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be on August 26th and 10:30 PT.
