It feels as if every time the earth makes a full trip around the sun, we can expect a new Call of Duty title. Rumours about a new Call of Duty, which is reportedly releasing later this year, are floating around the internet.

While Activision has yet to confirm any details or reveal the new Call of Duty game, rumours point towards the title being set in the Black Ops universe.

However, "Black Ops" won't be in the title. Instead, it will reportedly be called Call of Duty: Vietnam. 

This rumour comes from a report by TheGamingRevolution, explaining Call of Duty 2020 wouldn't have the Black Ops title, but would still be set in the same universe.

The game reportedly takes place during the Cold War era, with the Vietnam War taking centre stage.

Now, Kotaku's ex-news editor, Jason Schreier, who has been known to have insider information for the better part of a decade, has backed up this rumour in a series of tweets.

 

 

It was reported back in May 2019 that Treyarch would take over development of Call of Duty 2020. The game should be a cross-gen title, coming to both current-gen consoles, PC, as well as PS5, and Xbox Series X. 

As always, please take rumours such as this one with a grain of salt until such time as Activision revealed the next Call of Duty title. A reveal might not be too far off, as the publisher normally reveals a new title in the franchise in the month of May.
