Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

According to rumor, Call of Duty 2020 game is going to be a reboot of Black Ops sub-series and grittier than Modern Warfare.

Starting from this year, Call of Duty first-person shooter franchise is slowly leaning towards a reboot of their popular sub-series and thus, fourth Modern Warfare release is simply referred to as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for 2019.

Although CoD: MW is currently due for an October 2019 launch, publisher Activision has already rallied up developer Treyarch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 5, which may end up simply being named Call of Duty: Black Ops instead.

Set during 1961 and 1968, first Black Ops title has served as a sequel for Call of Duty: World at War and had Cold War as its premise. This is a hint of series reboot similar to Modern Warfare, which went back to roots of their first game.

Originally, Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games were working on upcoming Black Ops title, which is set to be on Cold War era. It was likely to feature some story campaigns based on Korean and Vietnam Wars as well.

Before it was officially revealed, this YouTuber has leaked out correct name for latest Modern Warfare game when many other established outlets have done the same, which nicely establish credentials for information source.

When Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games collaboration for Call of Duty 2020 wasn't looking too good, Activision has put Treyarch in charge of creative leadership to have the project running from that point onwards.

Black Ops is looking forward to a reboot model that is similar to Modern Warfare, where they took both new and old player base back to its original setup but somehow still keeping things fresh for everyone to enjoy a refined experience.

Call of Duty is an M-rated franchise that people like to point at for being a motivation behind people doing violent act from time to time and upcoming 2020 title Call of Duty: Black Ops would fan the flame by being more gruesome than MW.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunsmith System Teased

Activision teases Gunsmith weapon customization system for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer.

Newest addition to Call of Duty first-person shooter series for this year is going to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from developer Infinity Ward and publisher Activision, which is currently scheduled to release on October 25, 2019.

A soft reboot for Modern Warfare sub-series, the game has revealed Gunfight mode for a fast paced 2v2 play earlier. Most recently, Gunsmith weapon customization system is teased ahead of their multiplayer gameplay reveal next month.

Activision has briefly showcased possibilities of customizing a rifle with parts in one of their latest Tweet.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight Mode Revealed

Ever since Infinity Ward has introduced customizable loadouts in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it became an essential part of the series that each follow up release have adapted and upcoming MW will have it refined for better.

Gunsmith will allow players to tool up their primary and secondary weapons for competitive game mode with adjustments and firepower. Picking up important attachments from an array of kits is very crucial in multiplayer matches.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

When it comes to Assault rifles, you have nine areas to choose from to augment your weapon and they are balanced suppressor, CQB grip, corp combat, holo sight, lightweight stock, muzzle break, scout combat optic or a perk.

However, you can only customize up to five parts for each guns at your disposal unless they are already filled. According to unique playstyle, each player would take a different approach to tweak their weapons that suits them in battle.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Most interesting aspect of gun balancing is its limitation of five mod slots because different guns will offer varied amount of available slots. When there are fewer mod slots, people will pick up parts very carefully and leave out some.

As players will get their hands on more slots, they would likely to pick up pieces that are most important to enhance those weapons. In both scenarios, people would have to be very careful about what they end up choosing to kit their guns.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Operation Apocalypse Z Update

Gunsmith system was surely a nice throwback for veteran players of competitive mode who has been playing Call of Duty since early days. We would likely to see how perks will work out in Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal on August 1.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is planning to support cross-platform play for multiplayer mode at launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, they are completely getting rid of traditional Season Pass to offer free post-launch content for everyone.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Mod Adds Easy Mode

Months after release, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice eventually gets an apparent easy mode, thanks to latest mod.

When developer From Software launched action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One teaming up with publisher Activision in early 2019, it received immense praise aside from criticism for extreme difficulty.
