There hasn’t even been an official reveal for the 2019 Call of Duty title, but the rumblings of behind-the-scenes turmoil related to the 2020 title have already begun.
Since 2014, Sledgehammer Games have been in rotation for developing Call of Duty titles alongside Treyarch and Infinity Ward, with their next Call of Duty game scheduled for 2020. However, plans have taken a turn, with a recent Kotaku report revealing that Treyarch will be taking over development of the title from Sledgehammer and Raven.
The title is stated to be Black Ops 5, a sub series of Call of Duty titles that Treyarch has previously helmed. While Treyarch are taking creative leadership of the project, Sledgehammer and Raven will still be acting as support studios for the game.
The title is said to be set during the Cold War, and fans who criticised the lack of a campaign in last year’s entry Black Ops 4 will be happy to know that this game will be featuring a single player mode.
With a late 2020 release, there’s speculation that the title will be a cross-generation release, launching on the current Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as the new systems.
