Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gets worldwide reveal date
After a week-long teaser campaign that slowly unveiled clues about the next Call of Duty title, Activision and Treyarch have finally revealed… when they’re going to reveal Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
A new trailer on Call of Duty’s YouTube page shows KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov issuing a “chilling warning” about the USSR’s plans to destabilize the United States of America that are “decades in the making” over newsreel footage of civil unrest and war from the ’60s and ’70s.
Though we already knew that the game was called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War thanks to a Doritos bag, the end of the trailer confirms the title for the first time and the date for the worldwide reveal: August 26th.
It also appears as if the rumor about the game’s reveal trailer debuting inside of Warzone is also true, as the video’s description simply states “Verdansk,” which is the name of Warzone‘s map.
One more interesting thing to note: The game is called Cold War, and the phrase “know your history, or you’ll be doomed to repeat it” features heavily in the above trailer. Additionally, the Soviets’ plan being “decades in the making” could be a hint that the game is actually set in present day, or at least closer to present day than the original Black Ops.
We’ll find out next week.
