Black Ops 5 Coming 2020 As Call Of Duty Development CRASHES

According to the report, Black Ops 5 will feature a campaign set during the Cold War, and the work that had been done for Sledgehammer and Raven's title will be carried over into it.

Say what you like about Call of Duty, but Activision's current setup of having a dedicated trio of studios drop a new game in the series once every three years seems to have made for a lean and mean development machine.

Following the normal development cycle, Sledgehammer should be next in line for 2020's Call of Duty title, but according to three separate sources who are familiar with the companies, Activision has been forced to change direction and pull in Treyarch to take on the lead development role, with Sledgehammer and Raven serving as support studios, for a Black Ops 5 release a year ahead of schedule.

One main reason behind the studio switch is reportedly due to significant tensions between employees from Raven and Sledgehammer.

Following this pattern, 2020 should see the release of a Sledgehammer Games Call of Duty title, but apparently this will not be the case.

For many years now, Call of Duty has been on a three-year development cycle. The sources indicated that both staffs argued frequently over the past year. Not to mention Treyarch is still supporting Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with expansions and other content updates.

You need to get used to being embarrassed of bad fans of the good show, the folks who harass fast food workers over sauce. The show went on a long hiatus in October of 2017, following the airing of the last of the show's ten Season 3 episodes.

But it appears the standard formula has been upset, meaning the first Call of Duty game appearing on the PS5 will be Black Ops 5. As of late, Call of Duty has become synonymous with Activision's greed, and fans have definitely noticed.

We don't even have official confirmation of this year's Call of Duty entry yet, but the rumour mill is already swirling about what to expect out of the 2020 iteration.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 is in development for unspecified platforms. Treyarch released Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII in 2018 and Infinity Ward is leading this year's Call of Duty. Two people familiar with the project told Kotaku it was a mess.
