The alleged broad strokes of this rumour are certainly plausible, but until we get official word from Activision we would hedge our bets on the finer details. Still, it is nice to speculate on what the next instalment may have to offer.

The apparent leak also suggests that 2020's CoD will be a lot gorier than the last game, and will use the same engine that Infinity Ward built for last year'sModern Warfare. This reboot is apparently in development at Treyarch and will go down a similar path to the recent Modern Warfare reboot with call backs to the original games but with some changes to the events to make it a bit fresher. Zombies is also due to return, possibly based around Vietnam and due to be more grounded and realistic than some of the sillier Black Ops zombie modes (as realistic as you can be with zombies, I guess).
