Activision has not yet made a move, but the recent listing of Call of Duty 2020 The Red Door on the Microsoft Store has set off all alarms.
During the last months we have been seeing numerous rumors and alleged leaks that point in a clear direction: Call of Duty 2020 will be set in the Cold War, a very long historical period spanning from the end of the Second World War to the disintegration of the USSR in the early 1990s.
The fact that the Microsoft Store has listed a reference to the beta of Call of Duty 2020 The Red Door is A declaration of intentions, and tells us more than it may seem at first glance. On the one hand, the fact that this beta version has already been listed and that it occupies 81 GB suggests that we are facing a practically finished game, and that its official presentation should take place shortly.
On the other hand, the name “The Red Door”, which translated into Spanish means “The Red Door”, has a very marked symbolism. As many of our readers will know red is associated with communism, and during the Cold War was the color associated with the USSR, so clearer impossible, reinforces those rumors that placed Call of Duty 2020 at that time.
However, we must bear in mind that the Cold War lasted for several decades, so we are not clear what Activision intends to do. This new Call of Duty could cover all that historical strip offering a set of missions spanning different decades, or you could go for a less realistic approach and create a fictitious armed conflict to take us to an alterative and dystopian future in which said political conflict led to an armed conflict.
It is also commented that this game will be a smooth restart of the Black Ops franchise, and that it will play the same role that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 had at the time. The minimum and recommended requirements are not known, but we can take it for granted It will be an intergenerational transition game, that is, it will be available for both Xbox One, PC and PS4 as for Xbox Series X and PS5, so your requirements should not be far from what we saw in the last installment of the franchise.
Except for surprise, the launch of Call of Duty 2020 The Red Door (name not definitive) should take place sometime in October this year.
