Call of Duty 2020 Will Reportedly be Black Ops 5

Call of Duty 2020 Will Reportedly be Black Ops 5

Kotaku has reported that Activision is apparently switching up the studio development schedule for Call of Duty and has now handed next year's instalment to Treyarch.

Previously, the schedule had Sledgehammer and Raven set to develop 2020's Call of Duty title, but according to sources close to Kotaku, there have been some tensions between the two studios. This has led to their project being shelved for the time being and the studios being reassigned to work as support for Treyarch.

This has now shifted Treyarch's development schedule leaving them to develop the next Call of Duty in just two years as opposed to the usual three-year cycle. But according to the report, the work that was already made by Sledgehammer and Raven will be rolled into a single-player campaign for the next title, which is said to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 5.

Activision is yet to comment on this news, so as per usual with these kinds of things, it's best to take it with a pinch of salt until there's been some official word on the matter. For the time being, though, we're still yet to find out what Infinity Ward's next Call of Duty game is set to be, but it's rumoured we'll find out more at the end of June.

  • Hopefully they dont jack up black ops 5 like they did 4. Multiplayer only......pfft
  • Oh that's exactly what they plan on doing. It's why I won't be getting this one either.
  • Favorite was Modern Warfare 2 since then they have all been disappointing...
  • Fuck Activision you know shits going down when we know more about cod 2020 than we do cod 2019
  • Perhaps the issues are due to next gen console support?
  • Looking forward to more and more people continuing to trash this series, only to rush out and buy the game day one. Vote with your wallets, people.
  • I promise I wont buy without a campaign
  • "Will Reportedly be Black Ops 5" And a hundred tells me 2022 or 2023 one will be Black Ops 6
