UPDATE: It’s official! Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is coming on November 13, 2020. Serving as a direct continuation of the original Black Ops, it will be set in the early 1980s and “drops players into the depth of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical universe in a gripping experience where nothing is as it seems.” Alongside the campaign, players will use Cold War weapons and equipment in the multiplayer portion of the game, and also a new Zombie experience.

From the press release:

In pure Black Ops style, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fuses elements of the 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story, where deception and subterfuge are the norms in the gripping single-player Campaign. In this sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, players encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more. As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus, who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a wide selection of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer combat and an all-new Zombies experience.
