Call of Duty 2020's latest rumor surrounding the game's setting and title has centered around the Cold War.

Charlie Intel reported a story based on a tweet from Twitter user Okami13_ who's correctly leaked information on the Call of Duty franchise previously. It hasn't been publicly confirmed yet that Treyarch is developing the next title in the series, but it's assumed the studio will be the developer.

Okami's tweet was simply an edited image of the Call of Duty: Black Ops box art with the words "Cold War" written underneath it. Check out the image below.

It goes without saying that this won't be the official box art for the title. The title though does pose some questions as some don't want the series to once again be a Black Ops title despite some of the best entries in the franchise coming from Treyarch.

Okami also tweeted that the new Vaults in Warzone having Russian dialogue associated with them might be a hint toward the next title. A full abbreviation for the title, COD: BOCW also seems strange so possibly they'll drop Black Ops as a whole. Although, the Black Ops sub-series in CoD is arguably the most popular in the entire franchise.

There's been no official announcement regarding Call of Duty 2020, but the rumors and leaks point toward the game being in the Black Ops universe. It's also still on track to release this year despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
