Call of Duty: Vietnam may be coming to consoles this fall as the next title in the Call of Duty franchise is rumored to be set during the Vietnam War.

Here's everything we know about the newest Treyarch Call of Duty game that will follow Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty Vietnam Leaks

In a series of tweets yesterday, former Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier answered questions from fans of the Call of Duty franchise about the next scheduled release set for the fall of 2020. In answering those questions, Schreier, who himself claims to be relatively unacquainted with the Call of Duty lore, mentioned that next game reportedly had the title Call of Duty: Vietnam attached to it several times and would be attached to the story line from the Call of Duty: Black Ops series.

This is consistent with what other leakers so far have said, including YouTuber "dkdynamite", who in a recent video claimed that Sledgehammer Games had been working on a Vietnam based Call of Duty game for a while before it was shelved early in its production.

It's also consistent with what well known Call of Duty leaker "TheGamingRevolution" discussed in a recent video claiming that the next title would be a crossover with the Black Ops series, but not necessarily tied to the Black Ops universe.

According to current information, the game is still scheduled to be released this fall, even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Treyarch has not yet confirmed that the game will be ready by that time.
