Call of Duty 2020 is seemingly being teased in Call of Duty: Warzone, as players are reporting a brief glitch/scrambled message appearing in-game that says, "know your history." As reported by DualShockers, players, including @NutterButterAF and Dr_ Diappoint, have encountered this message that also contains a Russian phrase that translates to "doomed to repeat it."
This brief tease can apparently appear at any point in a Warzone match, and it only lasts about 3 seconds. While there is no indication as to whether there will be more hints of Call of Duty 2020 in Warzone, Activision did send a locked crate to members of the press, saying it should not be opened until August 10 at 9am ET/12pm ET/5pm ET. This would suggest we will learn more about this mysterious Call of Duty next week. In late July, a logo on a Doritos bag promotion may have leaked that the title for Call of Duty 2020 will be Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/08/04/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-warzone-official-season-five-trailer"] Last week, Treyarch and Raven confirmed they are the developers on this new game, and that its campaign and multiplayer are currently being tested internally. As for the future of Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision's president Rob Kotich stated that there will be a "very tight integration" between Warzone and this year's upcoming Call of Duty game.
