There is speculation that the 2020 Call of Duty title might be announced soon after hints suggest that Treyarch’s next release will be unveiled at Sony’s PlayStation 5 event on June 4.

Sony has announced that they will be hosting a showcase event on June 4, highlighting some of their planned products for their next-gen console, the Playstation 5.

Despite many rumors surrounding the future of the Call of Duty franchise, Activision has yet to confirm any details and many believe that all could be revealed at the upcoming Sony event.

Call of Duty 2020 is rumored to be a Black Ops title set during the Cold War.

Call of Duty titles are often revealed to fans in early May, but this year’s game has missed that mark, and so will be a bit later than usual in 2020.

One CoD YouTuber, DkDynamite, pointed out that the date, May 30, marked that an announcement was well overdue, suggesting that the upcoming reveal could probably be expected soon.

Despite being quiet on details about the future release, Treyarch Game Director David Vonderhaar also retweeted the tweet, leaving many fans confused as to what it could mean.

A prominent Call of Duty leaker, formerly known as LongSensation, also hinted at the possibility, quote tweeting the announcement of Playstation’s event with a few ‘Zipper-mouth’ emojis suggesting the rumors might be true.

The PlayStation event is scheduled to take place at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST on Thursday, June 4.

Activision and Sony do have an ongoing marketing agreement for Call of Duty and PlayStation.

However, Activision typically reveals the new Call of Duty’s on their own accord, rather than being tied specifically to an event.

So, this is certainly not a guarantee, and while there is a possibility of some big game teases and releases, Call of Duty 2020 would certainly be a surprise inclusion.

Many rumors around the next Call of Duty have suggested that it will be returning with another installment of the fan-favorite Black Ops series with a game set in the Cold War.

However, as mentioned before, neither Treyarch or Activision have confirmed any of these rumors, but fans don’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure.

Warzone star Rated joins Tommey on 100 Thieves’ roster

Building on the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone esports team, 100 Thieves have added former London Royal Raven, Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, as the second member of their battle royale roster.

While Rated wasn’t a focal point of the Royal Ravens in the Call of Duty League, he has emerged as one of the best Warzone players on Verdansk. With his stream popping off and tournament money rolling in, it should be no surprise that he was among 100T’s top candidates for their growing roster.

When Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that 100T would be fielding a battle royale team alongside their Los Angeles Thieves CDL squad, it was historic and fans were anxious to hear who would get signed.

Now, Rated joins fellow native of the United Kingdom and former CDL pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, as the team’s highly respected core.

Based in Los Angeles, some may be surprised that 100 Thieves have gone across the pond for their Warzone cornerstones. But, looking at Tommey and Rated’s successes in Verdansk, the signing becomes exponentially justified.

While Tommey sits at No. 5 on the Warzone earnings list, Rated is nearby at No. 7 with a hefty $70K in winnings. Those numbers become even more impressive when one factors in that Rated’s first major tournament invitation was in late June, while some of the other top earners began competing months earlier.

Characterized best as a steady player, Rated picks his angles and fights deliberately, shoots as straight as anyone, and has rightfully become known as one of Verdansk’s most intimidating forces. It’s a testament to his skill that competitors regularly express some degree of annoyance when finding out that they’re stuck in a lobby with the wicked Welshman.

Having teamed with Tommey many times already, the addition is a sensible one. Most recently, the duo took second place during the HusKerrs Howl tournament. While it’s unclear who else will be joining the roster, Tommey and Rated provide an excellent foundation with clear comms and a general reluctance to tilt.

With another Englishman, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, already signed to the Royal Ravens, one has to wonder if Nadeshot will put up the cash for Warzone’s best unsigned star: Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
