Black Ops Cold War was officially announced this week, after fans solved a week-long alternate reality game which had them solving puzzles in free-to-play 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.
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.
Earlier this month Activision confirmed that Treyarch and Raven Software are developing this year’s Call of Duty, which is scheduled to launch later this year.
