This next Call of Duty game reportedly has its name. That said, it would make sense for the next title to be called Black Ops Cold War. Judging by this, it's fair to say that Okami is suggesting the next installment within the franchise will be titled 'Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War'.

Twitter user Okami, who has accurately pre-empted news about Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the past, posted an image yesterday featuring the original box art for 2010's Call of Duty: Black Ops, with the added "Cold War" moniker text posted beneath its title. This game has previously been rumored to be taking place in the Cold War, with Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games initially co-developing before Treyarch stepped in to lead the project.
