Next Call of Duty Title Rumored to be Set in the Black Ops Universe

Call of Duty: Warzone has been doing really well for Activision/Blizzard lately. In fact, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as a whole has been a great success for the entire franchise.

So with rumors of a new game to be released this year, there has been a development regarding what exactly the next move in the Call of Duty franchise might be.

That’s right. Black Ops might be back.

Current Speculation

This latest batch of news comes from Charlie Intel, a premiere COD informational site. A few message boards have also been posting about the rumors. The original Black Ops game was released just about ten years ago. As such an anniversary release to cater to fans as well as celebrate the longevity of Call of Duty makes sense.

Blacks Ops was developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. It was released worldwide in November 2010 for Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. There was also a separate version for Nintendo DS developed by n-Space. With Blizzard and newer graphics thrown into the equation, we're left with a question. Where will the next COD incarnation be able to take their players?

Things To Consider

Now, while all of this news seems great, the pushback to deliver a quality game post-COVID is probably at the creative forefront of Blizzard/Activision right now.

“Seeing that game development is being affected by many different publishers & studios, it will be interesting to see how this year goes.”

The whole industry is at a standstill. While gaming is becoming a semi-counterculture under all of this Corona, there are a lot of uncertainties moving forward. Whether it is gaming or other esports related streaming news, the rules of video gaming might change forever after all of this. And, considering it now, there may even be some sort of storyline related to this pandemic in the next COD game.
