Treyarch's Next COD Will Reportedly Be Titled CALL OF DUTY: VIETNAM and Released This Fall
Although Activision has not revealed any concrete details on this year's big Call of Duty — sorry, Call of Duty: Warzone — Jason Schreier has just shared some new information on the next major entry in the action-packed game series. According to Schreier — who's one of the most reliable video game journalists working today (currently for Bloomberg News) — the upcoming game will be titled Call of Duty: Vietnam.
Fans of the Black Ops tetralogy should be happy to hear that the project is reportedly set in the Treyarch-created world, but it's not clear why the studio is hesitating to name it Black Ops V (or rather Black Ops IIIII).
Furthermore, Activision is hoping to release Vietnam this fall, but the ongoing global pandemic could very well ruin this plan, with the teams at Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games working on the game from home.
Quite interestingly, Schreier believes Vietnam won't serve as the series' reboot, seemingly confirming that recent leaks weren't entirely true. Still, returning to the first game's main setting sounds like a smart move.
2020's COD was supposed to be co-led by Raven Software and Sledgehammer — the makers of COD: WWII — but it's not longer the case, with Activision prioritising Treyarch's new game. Apparently, "rising tensions" between both studios were the main reason why the publisher decided to reshape the IP's future in last May.
