Call Duty Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War reveal set for August 26

Active measures.

The veil of secrecy has officially been lifted for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The next installment in the series will make its premier on August 26, but today’s teaser concluded the ARG series. Black Ops Cold War is a lengthy name, but an exciting concept as it’s sure to deal with tucked away secrets from that era.

Activision reinforced the notion in its trailer today which potentially set up the conflict for the story. The short video featured a historical warning from a KGB defector known as Yuri Bezmenov. He described the Soviet process of covert warfare, while a montage of historical  global events and weapons testing footage played. The trailer also called attention to an elusive Soviet spy codenamed “Perseus,” which allegedly infiltrated US intelligence. Altogether, the content in the message feels eerie and certainly piques one’s curiosity.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War narrative could take players to some very interesting places come release. The buried stories of spies and espionage run deep from that era and inspired countless franchises like James Bond. Now it seems that Call of Duty will travel down the rabbit hole of Cold War tales.

The time bomb is ticking

Unfortunately, there’s not much else to the trailer than what meets the eye. The Russian text roughly translates to the English equivalents. However, the trailer description does separately mention “Verdansk. August 26.” We can take this to mean that the next wave of info will relate to Warzone. Activision already confirmed that the popular battle royale mode will continue into the next entry in the series, but we don’t know what exactly that means. Could we see a Cold War version of Verdansk? Who’s to say.

For those who haven’t kept up with the recent leaks and teaser news, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is in development by Treyarch and Raven Software. Plenty of clues teased the Cold War setting, so today’s trailer shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. It’s certainly enough to get excited over though.
