Things are getting leaky all of a sudden. First, an image from EA's UFC 4 leaked online, and now it looks as though we have our first glimpse at the next instalment in the Call of Duty franchise. Rumours have been flying that the game is either a "gritty reboot" or a game set during the Cold War, but it seems certain that the Black Ops subtitle will make a return.
If we're to believe this leaked image, the game will simply be named Call of Duty: Black Ops.
This falls in line with last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which similarly vetoed numbers in favour of simplicity. Interestingly, Eurogamer reported the game would be named Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. It's possible the title was simplified, or that rumour was false in the first place. We're still no closer to knowing whether this is a reboot or a Cold War story, but this image looks real to us.
It's hardly a surprise, given the aforementioned rumours. Presumably, it won't be much longer before we learn more about this year's Call of Duty -- the PS5 games event is a safe bet.
