In addition, the email has confirmed that PC version is once again being developed by Beenox. The Activision-owned studio has been contributing to Call of Duty's various installments since 2015's Black Ops III.

Black Ops Cold War is mainly developed by Treyarch and Raven Software, and Activision is expected to formally announce the title on August 26 in part through the battle royale game Warzone. Warzone will be updated with new games' content in the future instead of Activision launching entirely separate battle royale games.

Black Ops Cold War teaser art has also been revealed. This art features a character wearing a Soviet insignia on the left and an American on the right, presumably to show how the two major powers were essentially equals during the height of the conflict. It's unclear if these characters are part of the story.
