Activision officially announced Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War last week with a teaser trailer, following a week-long alternate reality game in Call of Duty: Warzone.
VGC understands that the new Black Ops will include its own game modes such as campaign, multiplayer and zombies, but it will also incorporate free-to-play Warzone like Infinity Ward has done with Modern Warfare.
Warzone will continue to run on Modern Warfare’s engine, with development led by long time battle royale collaborator Raven Software, which also created Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode.
However, sources indicated to VGC that a planned Warzone map update will now take place later in the year. VGC previously reported that the Black Ops’s reveal would coincide with a Verdansk revamp to bring it more aesthetically in line with the game’s Cold War setting.
Call of Duty fans who pre-order Black Ops Cold War following its reveal will unlock a Frank Woods character in Warzone, according to a datamine of the game’s files.
