Activision seems to have partnered with Doritos to produce a unique snack campaign for the upcoming Call of Duty 2020 release. However, the campaign may have gone live a little too early and leaked the name and setting for the upcoming game. Images were spotted online regarding a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War double XP incentive. Users can by a packet of Doritos chips and get double XP for a year.
The Doritos campaign reveals that the XP incentive kicks off on 5 October 2020. This could speculate that the game may release that week. The campaign also reveals the game’s logo for the first time.
In addition to this leak, Activision released an alpha for the game called “The Red Door” last week. It seems the developer has already been testing the game worldwide through this client. While players could not load the game, data miners unearthed multiplayer code that pointed to a Cold War setting. Words included phrases such as “Black Sea, KGB, Miami, Moscow, and Tank”. These are apparently the maps in the upcoming game.
Campaign mission details were also leaked which included “Stakeout”, “Armada”, “Prisoner”, and “Revolution”. While Activision has yet to formally announce the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, there are no secrets surrounding the game anymore.
What we don’t know is how Activision is going to tackle the transition between Warzone and the new game. Will players be able to move progress over when it launches or perhaps keep progress between the two games? We also don’t know what the plans are for next-gen. Will Activision release the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War on PS5 and Xbox Series X? If so, will there be a free upgrade program for the game?
Whatever happens, we will keep you updated on the latest Call of Duty 2020 news.
