New Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War ‘CONFIRMED for October launch’ by Doritos crisp packet leak

0

A DORITOS crisp packet may have revealed the name and release window for the next Call of Duty game.

The new shooter title is expected to be called Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, and could land as soon as October.

A new Call of Duty game comes out every year, like clockwork.

But Activision is keeping a tight lid on Call of Duty 2020, leaving fans relying on online leaks and rumours.

For months, leakers and insiders have suggested a Call of Duty Cold War game is on the way, and Doritos has seemingly confirmed this.

Images of yet-to-be-released Doritos promotional snack packaging detail a special offer relating to the new Call of Duty game.

The packaging is headed up with the name Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.

And it gives buyers of Doritos crisp packets the chance to unlock double XP in the next Call of Duty game for a year.

The promotion kicks off on October 5, 2020, and ends on January 31, 2021.

That suggests that the game could launch as soon as October, though November is also possible.

The images were posted by a prominent Call of Duty YouTuber called TheGamingRevolution.

“These are the two Doritos Double XP promotional images that I was DM’d earlier from an anonymous source for Call of Duty 2020 Black Ops Cold War,” the Twitter post read.

“I was too worried about copyright issues to post them earlier but since CharlieIntel shared them I (assume?) they’re safe.”

An early leak hinted that we’ll be exploring a Vietnam War setting.

But a later suggestion from Twitter leaker @Okami13 – and backed up by Eurogamer – is that we’ll see a Cold War setting.

The Cold War was a period of major tension between the USA and Soviet Union, but wasn’t an outright war in the conventional sense.

Instead, both nations supported “proxy wars” – regional conflicts used to gain global influence.

And the fact that both nations controlled nuclear weaponry meant that neither side was willing to risk a war proper.

The period is generally said to have run from 1947 through to 1991 – when the Soviet Union was dissolved.

Neither Call of Duty or Doritos has confirmed recent leaks.

We’ve asked Call of Duty and Doritos for comment and will update this story with any response.
