One of the most rumored and discussed games this year is the mysterious title Call of Duty 2020.
With new rumors and leaks, we thought we’d summarize everything we know about this game so far.
The new leaks
The latest leaks tell us a few different things. There is a leaked list of campaign missions and multiplayer maps that confirm a return to parts of the original Black Ops storyline.
This leak comes from a Microsoft Store entry called “The Red Door”, which appears to be an alpha for Call of Duty 2020. Data miners quickly got to work and started browsing the files to find some important information about the upcoming title. They uncovered a list of multiplayer maps, campaign missions, and confirmation of zombies mode.
Eight multiplayer maps were leaked from the ProtoWarehouse data miner and shared with the ModernWarzone Twitter account.

It looks like these cards correlate with the leaks that Youtuber TheXclusiveAce uncovered in June (videos deleted since then).
The full list of cards includes:
- Black Sea
The main multi-player map was reportedly featured on social media as “tanks” as early as June.
Of course, these leaks and related footage have been cleared, so the rumors are likely to be accurate. Activision has launched several copyright strikes and DMCA warnings for anyone who shares suspected footage of the game on social media.
The other main part of the leak was the list of campaign mission names. Prototype Warehouse has posted a number of campaign mission names on Twitter.

We can collect some information from these code names. The references to “KGB” and “Nam” seem to be pretty much in line with other rumors we’ve seen about this Cold War game. It looks like it will take place in different places around the world, with Russia and Vietnam being key areas.
“Nic_revolution” seems to be a reference to the Nicaraguan revolution that took place in the 1960s and 70s. That excited a few fans. It suggests we’ll see Raul Menendez again – a Nicaraguan political activist / the main villain in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
In addition to the standard single player and multiplayer campaigns, zombies will return as the third mode.
Data miners have determined that a single card with the code name “Silver” will be included in the start of the game. As many Call of Duty veterans already know, Treyarch is known for using colors as code names for zombie cards in development. Since this mode has been a fairly consistent part of the CoD franchise since 2008, its inclusion here is probably not a massive shock.
What is the actual Call of Duty title?
With so many rumors and leaks, are we closer to knowing the real name of this Call of Duty game? There were many rumors about the name. So far we’ve seen Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty Black Ops CIA and Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War.
We still can’t say for sure what this game will be called, so no one can guess at the moment. We imagine that we will soon see a trailer that should hopefully confirm or put some of these rumors to bed.
When we learn more about the upcoming Call of Duty game, we’ll let you know. What do you think of the recent leaks? What do you think will be the official title? Let us know in the comments below.
