After a massive Easter-egg hunt, Activision has confirmed the existence of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.
The game’s being developed by longtime Black Ops developer Treyarch and fellow Activision studio Raven Software (Quake 4, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast).

The teaser — just as the ARG leading up to it suggested — confirmed that the game would indeed be inspired by the real-world events of the Cold War.

At the end of the first teaser, Activision announced that the world reveal of Black Ops: Cold War would take place on Wednesday, August 26.
This is expected to somehow take place, in-game, on Warzone’s Verdansk map.
After Fortnite’s world map got devoured by a black hole and Destiny 2 blew up a sun-killing superweapon in the skies above the social hub, things could get interesting when this reveal event kicks off.
Black Ops: Cold War is set to launch in 2020.
