Original story follows...

While we know next to nothing about this year's Call of Duty, publisher Activision said co-developers Raven Software and Treyarch will show off the game "fairly soon." This news came during a recent Activision Blizzard earnings call, where Activision president Rob Kostich said Warzone helped the Call of Duty teams rethink how content is revealed while also confirming that Call of Duty 2020 news is on the way.

"It's Warzone, I think, that's caused us to rethink how, when, and even where we reveal our upcoming title," Kostich said. "So we can't wait to share it with the community, and we think it's gonna be very different and more engaging than anything we've ever done before.

"Now, as you heard on the call before, Treyarch and Raven are coming up with the next premium game, and [we're] obviously very excited about what they're working on, and we do think fans are gonna absolutely love it. The game looks incredible right now and internally people are having a ton of fun playing across its campaign mode as well as the online modes that the developers are very well known for. And so, all I can say in terms of timing is I suspect you'll be hearing more about this fairly soon."

Following news of Warzone including future Call of Duty content, Kostich said this year's Call of Duty will be closely connected to Warzone in the same way Modern Warfare is.

"Now, on your question of how we're going to integrate the title with Warzone, I think that's a good one, it's an important one, and what you should expect is that [there will be] very tight integration between the two. Modern Warfare and Warzone are obviously very tightly connected, and I think that's really important to the player base. We plan to do the same with all our upcoming titles as well, our premium titles, to ensure that we can reward all of our players and give them fresh new experiences, regardless of whether they choose to just play in Warzone or also play in the premium game as well, so the connection will absolutely be there."

Treyarch subsequently tweeted confirmation that it is "looking forward" to talking about what the team's working on with Raven. It's worth noting Treyarch is responsible for the Black Ops series, with both studios collaborating on 2018's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

This year's Call of Duty is rumored to be a Black Ops entry set in the Cold War. While information about the title remains scarce, a recent Microsoft Store listing sparked further rumors of some kind of reveal.
