More details about the next Call of Duty title have seemingly been confirmed by a prominent video game journalist.

Leaks about the 2020 Call of Duty title suggested the game would not be a reboot or a new installment to the Black Ops series, and now, Jason Schreier has appeared to confirm those rumors were accurate.

On Twitter, Schreier was asked about the likelihood of a Call of Duty game still releasing in 2020, despite ongoing world events and Treyarch taking over development from Sledgehammer Games.

“As of right now, it's still planned for fall,” he revealed, but noted that things could change drastically in the coming months.

While Schreier stressed he wasn’t a lore aficionado when it comes to Call of Duty, he answered some more questions about what he knew about the upcoming game, and seemed to confirm the Vietnam rumors.

“I’m not a COD person, so I don’t know anything about all the lore shenanigans or what it really means to be a Black Ops game, but one title I’ve heard thrown around a couple times is just ‘COD: Vietnam,’” the former Kotaku writer replied.

He added that he was “unsure” if the game would in fact be part of the Black Ops universe.

On April 20, well-known CoD leaker 'TheGamingRevolution' uploaded a video addressing rumors about the next game, and claimed that it won’t be tied directly to the Black Ops universe.

However, he went on to make a point that the game is expected to crossover with the Black Ops story in some capacity.

Additionally, another YouTuber by the name of ‘dkdynamite’ claimed Sledgehammer Games had been worked on a Vietnam-based Call of Duty as far back as 2010, though it was shelved early on.

While the YouTuber suggested the game’s title would be “Call of Duty: Vietnam,” Schreier appeared to dismiss that theory.

“I poked around and as of right now I don't think ‘COD: Vietnam’ is the final title,” he explained, implying that the Vietnam title was being used internally and/or as a codename.

As the fall draws nearer, expect even more information about the upcoming game to make its way through the cracks.
