Activision has announced “Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War” will be the title of this year’s entry in their long-running FPS franchise.
The new installment takes place and ties into some of the most formative events of the U.S.-Soviet Cold war. Though originally Sledgehammer Games’ turn in the cycle, conflicts of interest led to Treyarch and Raven Software taking over and co-developing the new entry.
A worldwide reveal is due on August 26th, though a conceptual teaser arrived today and can be seen below. The series has had a big comeback in the last year or so with 2019’s ‘Modern Warfare’ reboot and the subsequent ‘War Zone’ Battle Royale version have been massive hits.
