Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Finally Announced, Full Reveal Coming Next Week

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Finally Announced, Full Reveal Coming Next Week

The much-rumored Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is indeed real, and we'll be seeing more of it in action on August 26.

Well folks, it has been one of the most open secrets in the video games industry over the past few months, and Activision today decided to finally make it official.

In a newly leaked trailer titled “Know Your History,” Activision today formally announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is indeed the name of this year’s entry in the long-running shooter franchise. The video itself features plenty of throwback footage from the 1960s, with voiceover being provided from an anonymous person that has a Russian accent. The game, which is said to be inspired by true events, ends with the phrase “Know your history, or be doomed to repeat it,” before the title of the game finally appears.

As for what’s next, the trailer concludes with the date of August 26, which is when we’ll formally get a first look at what will likely be the first gameplay footage of Black Ops: Cold War. Most interestingly, and in line with what Activision has already been doing, the reveal is set to take place within the battle royale title Call of Duty: Warzone.

It remains to be seen what Treyarch and Raven Software will have up their sleeves with Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, but let’s just hope that the final product turns out well. Rumors and reports over the past year or so have indicated that the game’s development has been somewhat troublesome. Still, despite whatever dire straits the title may have been in, Activision is still very much set on releasing it at some point later in 2020.
