Activision announced last week that the full reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War would be coming within the free-to-play battle royale release Call of Duty: Warzone. They have now confirmed the exact timing of said reveal. In a recent tweet, they confirmed that this year’s Call of Duty entry will be unveiled in full tomorrow, on August 26, at 10: 30 AM Pacific Time in Warzone.
There will be more to wait for with Black Ops – Cold War following that as well, with the shooter also confirmed to be making an appearance at Gamescom Opening Night Live the following day. In the meantime, details on the game have started emerging as well. Thanks to recent datamining of Warzone’s game files, it’s been leaked that Black Ops – Cold War will be a direct sequel to the first Black Ops game, while information on the game’s various editions has also leaked, revealing that free next-gen upgrades are not supported.
Earlier leaks have also revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will feature a campaign, multiplayer, and a Zombies mode, while Activision have also confirmed that the game will also tie into the ever-evolving Warzone.
Finally, promotion emails sent out by Activision have revealed, unsurprisingly, that Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will be exclusive to Battle.net on PC.
