For many years, the new Call of Duty game has been revealed in either April or May without fail. We are now fast approaching the end of June with no news to report on this year’s release from either Activision or developer Treyarch.
In a financial earnings call in February, Activision did confirm that a new ‘premium’ Call of Duty game would be launching in the winter, but did not disclose any details. Many fans assumed that the reveal for Call of Duty 2020 would come during the PlayStation 5 reveal livestream, as Activision and Sony have had marketing rights for the past few years, but this did not happen.
In a tweet after the event, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier confirmed that the new Call of Duty game will not be announced for a while, with one Call of Duty insider LongSensation claiming that the reveal may even be pushed back as far as August.

Despite the lack of official news, we do know a fair amount about what Call of Duty 2020 will entail. The title is heavily rumoured to be called “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War“, suggesting it might be a reboot in a similar vein to Modern Warfare last year, and also confirms the setting.
The game is being developed by Treyarch, with Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software reportedly assisting.
