As rumors and rumors multiply on Call of Duty 2019, Jason Schreier of Kotaku decides to devote himself to the chapter of COD that will be marketed in 2020 to reveal some interesting details about the future Activision project.
According to an anonymous source questioned by the now famous Kotaku publisher who with his surveys gave media visibility to the problem of crunch time in the gaming industry and clarified the thorny issue of the catastrophic launch of Anthem, the Call of Duty episode that will come launched in the second half of 2020 will be the fifth chapter of the series of Black Ops: to drive its development will no longer be the Sledgehammer and Raven Software studios, but the Treyarch team .
The change outlined by the author of Kotaku is quite significant and, if true, would confirm the end of the three-year alternation of shooters in the COD series developed in turn by Infinity Ward, Treyarch and, of course, Sledgehammer. This event, reports Schreier, is due to the will of the Activision top management to reduce the development cycle of the future chapters of their shooter epic from three to two years.
On the basis of these rumors, the Sledgehammer and Raven Software teams will be given a secondary role of supervision and control. From a pure content point of view, Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 should provide a solid single-player component and abandon a “canonical” military context to be set in the Cold War years. The launch of Black Ops could, therefore, coincide with that of PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
