While Infinity Ward gives shape to Call of Duty 2019, the teams of Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software had been working on the new chapter of the saga that will debut in 2020. Or at least, that was the initial plan. According to reports Kotaku, tensions between both teams would have motivated an important change of plans on the part of Activision, that would have put to the front of the project to the veteran equipment of Treyarch.
Until now a few details about this project were known, as I was going to have a powerful story that would take you to fight in the middle of the Cold War, presumably in Vietnam or a scenario in the Pacific. With the change of equipment, the project would have become Call of Duty: Black Ops 5.
Fight in the middle of the Cold War, presumably in Vietnam or a scenario in the Pacific. With Treyarch at the head of the video game, Teams from Sledgehammer and Raven would support the project to meet the launch date in 2020. According to information from the parties involved, part of the material already developed will be used to bring an intergenerational game to fruition, that is, it will premiere on current and new generation platforms.
In recent years, each new Call of Duty series had had three years of development, but after the release of Black Ops 4, Treyarch alone It would have two years of production. Hence, the team is relying on Sledgehammer and Raven. Interestingly, the previous project of the studio ruled out the single campaign to focus on its multiplayer side, the zombie mode, and the new battle royale of Call of Duty.
At the moment Activision has declined to comment on this situation.
