Call Of Duty 2020 confirmed; Activision planning new remasters

A new Call Of Duty game isn’t much of a shocker, but Activision is also going to announce more remastered titles later this year.

Regardless of your feelings towards the Call Of Duty franchise, it has consistently been one of Activision’s biggest money makers. So nobody will be too surprised to learn that a new entry is already in development.

This was confirmed during the company’s most recent investor call and we also know that the game is slated to release sometime this autumn (October or November is usual).

Activision execs didn’t state which studio would be developing the title, but they sound confident about it, saying that they ‘feel[s] great about the content’ and that the game has been ‘generating high interest internally.’

New Call Of Duty games are usually announced around May, so we can probably expect the same this year. It’s also possible that this new title will be Black Ops 5, according to a report from last year.

Allegedly Treyach will be making the game, even though it’s not their ‘turn’, since usually Call Of Duty developers get three years to work on each game and they did 2018’s Black Ops 4.

That wasn’t the only news to come out of the call, however. According to insider Daniel Ahmad, the company is planning a number of remastered titles that will be announced later this year.

Considering the success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy, it’s just as unsurprising that Activision would want to try the same thing for some of their other fan-favourite classics.

Hopes and theories have already begun to fly around as to what these potential remasters could be, with the Tony Hawk Pro skater titles being popular picks. One possibility is 2009’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which was supposedly leaked last year.

Aside from this, the Blizzard side of the company is confirmed to be adding more content to its titles throughout the year, and the upcoming mobile title Diablo Immortal is planned to be entering the testing phase in mid-2020.

Blizzard has recently fallen in hot water (again) with fans after the release of Warcraft 3: Reforged, so it’s going to need to work extra hard to please its frustrated fan-base.
