Activision might not have confirmed a name for their Call of Duty 2020 game just yet, but according to potentially leaked information it might be called ‘Classified’ or Black Ops.  

In recent years, fans have seen a number of different titles that have followed on from previous series’ – such as Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward, and Black Ops for Treyarch, but every once in a while there’s also been others thrown into the mix. Ghosts, for example, which came out back in 2013.

Well, if you were one of those people who thought CoD 2020 might be the next project to have a fresh name, a new apparent leak might give some food for thought.

Infinity Ward
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare includes a battle royale game mode called Warzone, but will the next title?

While things that haven’t yet been announced in the world of CoD are sometimes labelled as “classified” information, it actually looks like the next game might be left as just that.

According to SunnyMatrix, who has posted an unverified leak to Reddit, the next title will be named as such.

The post states: “Call of Duty 2020 will either be called, ‘Call of Duty: Classified’ or ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops.'” If this turns out to be accurate, of course that’s not confirmed, it does leave the door open for another “soft reboot” Black Ops game, just like they did this year with MW.

This post, as seen above, also mentions a number of other potential details regarding the next Call of Duty title. This includes apparent story information, with references made to the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the United States’ 35th President, as well as a mention of the Cold War, and more.

The games usually release in the Holiday season each year, although with it being still fairly early days in 2020, nothing has been confirmed just yet. Therefore, we would urge fans to take this ‘leak’ with a pinch of salt until things are announced.

Drift0r explains why Warzone “isn’t worth” playing anymore

Popular Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r has released a new video explaining why he thinks Warzone isn’t worth playing anymore due to the number of cheaters in the game, confirming that he is on the brink of “jumping ship” with the battle royale title.

If you’ve been wondering if/when larger content creators and streamers would abandon Warzone due to the lack of an anti-cheat software then wonder no more.

Today, Drift0r – one of the more prominent content creators in the CoD scene – has made a video slamming Warzone for its inability to deal with all the rampant cheating and it seems like the issue has brought him to a breaking point with the game.

“It’s difficult enough with skill-based matchmaking as it is, having to play the sweatiest top 1% players, that’s a challenge in-and-0f-itself that I don’t particularly like for battle royale, but adding in blatant aim-botters on top of that makes the game painfully unfun,” Drift0r said.

According to Drift0r, the cheating in Warzone has become such a problem that he’s considering leaving the game behind.

In the 10-minute long video, the YouTuber says the cheating problem is making him not want to play the game anymore, claiming that he runs into at least “two to three cheaters a night.”

Because of this, and the fact that interest in the game is waning, he contends that he doesn’t feel like the game is worth playing because of the cheating problem.

“I really like Warzone, you can look at my videos, it’s my number 1 most favorite CoD thing to play, but I’m planning to jump ship,” he said. “I got up this morning and I made the decision: I’m going to go ahead and keep making videos but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t think it’s worth playing anymore.”

Cheating is a major problem for the CoD community right now. The PC version of Warzone is riddled with cheaters and hackers, whether they use external software or manipulate the skill-based matchmaking system to get lower-tier lobbies, to the point where major tournaments have been ruined and lost integrity.

All indications are that Drift0r is not alone in sharing this sentiment; the content creators he’s talked to feel a similar way, claiming they are all ready to “jump ship” as well once a viable game comes along that protects them from cheaters.

Because of this, it seems like the future of Warzone is going to be a turbulent one if Activision doesn’t do anything about the state of the game soon, especially when it comes to the cheating problem.
