Seasons show up at the same time every year, and in that way, they’re not unlike Call of Duty. Just about every major release in the series has reliably dropped in the fall, and we see no reason for that to change with Call of Duty: Black Ops 5.
As to when in the fall we could see Activision’s new shooter, that could depend largely on whether or not the game has support for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, which both launch in Holiday 2020. We could see Black Ops 5 dropping in November or December as a day one launch title for both platforms. Or, if Black Ops 5 isn’t concerned with the next generation just yet, it could come in October as usual.
We’ll keep you posted.
