Activision Blizzard debuted a new trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War—a direct sequel to 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops set in the 1980s—which not only gave a look at the highly-anticipated game but also revealed the release date: November 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with next-gen consoles getting the game around Holiday 2020 “depending on when consoles are available to consumers.”
Here’s what Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick had to say in a statement:

Here is the official synopsis for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War:
In pure Black Ops style, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fuses elements of 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story, where deception and subterfuge are the norm in the gripping single-player Campaign. In this sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, players encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more. As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus, who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history.
