Some good news has recently surfaced regarding Call of Duty 2020, aka Black Ops: Cold War. According to some professional Call of Duty players, developer Treyarch has been reaching out to discuss competitive play. Whether you’re a fan of the competitive scene or not, this is reassuring. The esports scene for Call of Duty is extremely important as it brings in new viewers and players to the franchise. Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward has somewhat dropped the ball this year, which is perhaps why Treyarch is making a concerted effort to improve the competitive experience.
Call of Duty 2020 headed in the right direction
In years past, Treyarch has traditionally been more adept than Infinity Ward when it comes to esports. Many would agree that Modern Warfare has some of the worst competitive play in any Call of Duty. The maps are questionably designed, the killstreaks are subpar, and the weapons aren’t very diverse.
However, with Treyarch, the competitive atmosphere is usually much stronger. Black Ops II and III are arguably some of the best Call of Duty titles when it comes to esports. So, it should come as no surprise that the developers are taking competitive seriously when it comes to Black Ops: Cold War in 2020.
Chance “Maux” Moncivaez, a player for the Florida Mutineers, recently posted on the COD Competitive subreddit. According to him, Treyarch has been reaching out to different professional players and asking their opinion on competitive play for 2020.
While this isn’t official by any means, it’s hard to see a professional player lying about something of this nature. Also, it lines up with previous years, as Treyarch is often heavily involved with the competitive scene.
We’re still awaiting official word about Call of Duty 2020 from either Activision or Treyarch. Hopefully, we’ll see something in the next couple of weeks.
