Call of Duty 2020 Entry Co-Developed by Treyarch and Raven Software
The rumored Call of Duty Black Ops installment that is set to launch later this year is now officially a joint project between two Activision studios.
It’s August and we still have yet to hear a word from Activision about this year’s upcoming entry in the annualized Call of Duty series. And while a formal reveal for the 2020 title will have to wait until another day, some new information on what’s rumored to be titled Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was divulged today.
During Activision’s quarterly financial call, it was announced that this year’s Call of Duty game serves as a joint project between Black Ops developer Treyarch and that of Raven Software. While typically a supporting developer on the franchise, Raven seems to have taken an even larger role in 2020’s iteration of Call of Duty, which isn’t a surprise given that in the past, the game was reportedly said to be struggling with its development.
We are excited to announce our partnership with @Treyarch on this year’s Call of Duty! Can’t wait to show you more!

At this point, the biggest question surrounding the 2020 Call of Duty game involves its proper unveiling. As mentioned before, the fact that Activision has kept this title under wraps until this point in the year is pretty shocking. That said, we very well could be learning a whole lot more in a few days.
Sony is set to hold a State of Play live stream later this week on Thursday, August 6, and rumors are stating that Call of Duty is set to make its debut on this stage. Given that Sony and Activision have been frequently partnering on all things COD within the past few years, it wouldn’t be a shock to see the next installment in the franchise show up during State of Play. Plus, Sony has already confirmed that this showing will focus more on upcoming PS4 games rather than anything related to the PS5, so there’s a good shot that Call of Duty will make an appearance.
Obviously, if that does end up happening, we’ll be sure to inform you of it later this week. Call of Duty 2020 still doesn’t have a release date or confirmed platforms just yet, but it is said to be arriving before the end of the calendar year.
