Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is an upcoming first-person shooter game developed by Treyarch and Raven Software and released by Activision. This is the fifth part of the “Black Ops” series and the seventeenth part of the “Call of Duty” series. The game is scheduled to be released at the end of 2020. It is scheduled to be disclosed globally on August 26, 2020.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War was conducted during the Cold War “inspired by actual events”. On May 18, 2019, Kotaku reported that the game is undergoing drastic changes due to the growing tension between developers Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software in the studio. Kotaku’s sources called the game “chaos.” In response, Activision assigned Treyarch to lead the development together with Raven.
On August 4, 2020, Activision Technology confirmed in its second quarter earnings conference call that it plans to release a new “Call of Duty” title in 2020, and Treyarch and Raven are developing this game.
This will be the first Call of Duty game since Modern Warfare 3 jointly developed by the two studios. It will also be the first time that Raven Software has become the main developer because, in previous games, they have assisted in multiplayer games and Other functions. Activision President Rob Kostich confirmed in the second-quarter earnings conference call that the “Black Ops” Cold War will be “closely connected” with “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” (2019) and “Call of Duty: War Zone”.
