Call of Duty: Black Ops surfaced for the first time in 2010. Since then, a total of four games of the series have been released as well. There are now serious rumors surfacing regarding the release of the fifth part of the game series. So, I’m here to talk about Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 update and all other possible details regarding the game. In-game spoilers are also a part of this post, and this is a quick spoiler warning for all of you who don’t like spoiler content. Without delaying the post any more, let us begin discussing the topic. Without delaying any more, let us begin this post regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops 5.
Black Ops 5 update
Black Ops 5 is rumored to be released in the third quarter of 2020. There is no official word on the release of this game, but strong rumors suggest that it will surely be coming out this year. The first game of the series was launched in 2010 and fourth part in 2018. The game is first-person shooter, multiplayer, and it will be developed by Treyarch, and also Activision will be publishing it like we have seen in the past with Black Ops 5 predecessors.
Since we have absolutely no details regarding the new game, let me share with you some of its predecessor’s details because a lot of people working with the game seldom change. Previous versions of directors were Jason Blundell and Dan Bunting. Bruce Hall was the artist. The story of the game was given by Craig Houston and Dave Anthony. Jack Wall was the composer of the game. Its engine is the IW engine. Call of Duty Black Ops 5, like its predecessors, will be available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox, etc. There was also a battle royale mode in the fourth part.
There are expected to be a lot of changes in the fifth part of the game, and all of them will certainly be positive ones only. There were some crash errors in battle royale mode in the fourth game, and we hope that gets fixed in the upcoming game. There will be some changes to the storyline as well. There are rumors about cold war stories making its way to the latest Call of Duty game.
Another development in the game is said to be an all-new zombie mode. This zombie mode seems to be exciting. Although it is nothing new, I’m sure there are going to be a lot of positive changes in this mode. Modern weaponry will be added to the latest edition as the previous game came out two years ago, and now these weapons need some serious up-gradation. There will be some more upgrades and tweaks here and there as well.
Black Ops 5 Details
Call of Duty Black Ops has been a huge hit among the fans from the very start. The First Edition of Black Ops came out in 2010. Till August 2011 game had already sold over 25 million copies worldwide. It was the best selling game of its time and made an insanely huge amount of money. Then came the second edition in 2012. Until 2013 the game was considered to be the biggest entertainment launch for more than a year after its release. $500 million-plus was the sale of the game just within 24 hours of the launch. Than Black Ops 3 came out in 2015, three years after its predecessor.
It was the number one sold game in the United States of America in 2015. It was also a very successful game and earned a lot of money for the franchise. After that, the new game was released in 2018, known as Call of Duty Black Ops 4. Even though there were a lot of new additional features introduced in this one like battle royale and zombie modes, it just didn’t perform as well as the previous ones. The blackout mode of the game was a great one to play, and the game overall still received positive reviews, but it just wasn’t sold that much. Nonetheless, it was the best selling Activision digital game since 2017. Now, Call of Duty Black Ops 5 is presumed to be releasing in 2020, will it reach the heights of its predecessors?
Well, if the game release is made in 2020 and not delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it will only be the biggest success that the game has ever seen. I’m saying this because most of the people have nothing to do at home and when the new game is out, they can download it and buy and online, which will take the sales of the game to never seen before heights. Online gamers will obviously buy it, but officer workers and others will also buy it this time because of the lockdown.
If I was in the games sales team, I would suggest an immediate update because they can use this situation to their advantage. Plus they should sell it at lower rates as well, that won’t affect their profits because more people than usual will play the game. Whenever the game is officially announced, we’ll share the news with all of you as soon as possible. So, just wait and hope that the game is released sooner rather than later.
