Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has finally been publicly acknowledged by Activision. The publisher finally uploaded a new video to their Call of Duty Channel that confirms the name of the game and the full reveal set for August 26th. All of the cat and mouse games can finally come to a close.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War officially teased – August 26th global reveal
We have now set a new record in gaming history, for the longest, a Call of Duty game has gone without being revealed.
After a long wait, the game has been revealed via this teaser trailer which repeats all of the previous texts and content from pawntakespawn and it seems that Activision has finally acknowledged the game’s existence.
The video lays a heavy emphasis on the Cold War and the USSR which means that this could potentially be a reboot of the Black Ops line of games, similar to what Activision did with Call of Duty in 2019 with Modern Warfare.
If it is a reboot, many fans are definitely going to be excited.
The entire trailer is just news clips and historic media, no gameplay was shown, but with an August 26th reveal date, you can count on all the major questions regarding the game being answered.
There are still some burning questions fans have however.
Whether the game will have cross-gen purchase support, what are the current-gen and next-gen differences, a release date and many other questions that are begging to be answered.
If we were to wager, the latest installment will drop in November to compete with Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassins Creed Valhalla, but perhaps earlier in the month, or could potentially launch alongside the consoles to give next-gen console owners further incentive to buy the game.
As mysterious as the reveal was, this is now a moment in Call of Duty history, one we hope doesn’t repeat again. The entire hype leading up to the reveal trailer was a bit disappointing, a gameplay teaser would have been more sufficient.
