Black Ops 4 players are going to be enjoying a ton of indoors time as Treyarch announced when they can reap the rewards of the Fun in the Sun Double XP event coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Treyarch has been on a role with giving their player base tons of ways to level up their accounts and in-game item collection this Summer, and the future is only getting brighter with the latest offering from the devs.

In another round of Double XP, the Black Ops 4 team are continuing the Days of Summer offerings by giving players the ability to earn tons of levels in Multiplayer, Zombies and League play.

In a June 20 Tweet, Treyarch outlined what’s to come for the Black Ops 4 community when the Fun in the Sun event runs through June 21 at 10 a.m. PST to June 25 10 a.m. PST.

It looks like no corner of Black Ops 4 will be left untouched by the seasonal event, as Multiplayer and Zombies players will get double the XP for their efforts as well as League Play.

Meanwhile, those who prefer to dive into the Blackout game mode will be able to net themselves twice the Merits during Fun in the Sun.

The new event will definitely be the signal for Black Ops 4 players to jump back into the fray again, especially since Contracts will directly follow the conclusion of the incoming XP event.

What else is coming during the Fun in the Sun Weekend?

The company behind Black Ops 4 didn’t think double XP was enough as they’re also throwing in a few extra incentives to get people back onto the servers.

Treyarch will also be giving a lot of players a chance to experience a new way to play Call of Duty by announcing that they will give “Black Ops Pass Multiplayer map access” to everyone.

Along with the access, there will also be a new Map Pack Moshpit to really make the battlefields more chaotic through the weekend.

The Fun in the Sun weekend looks like it’ll have something for everyone to explore with its wide variety of incentives throughout Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
