Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War released back in November 2020 alongside the newest generation of consoles. Since then, there's been numerous updates and additions to both multiplayer and zombies. Now, Activision is sharing more about where we'll be heading in Season 2, which kicks off on February 25, 2021. You can take a look at the cinematic reveal trailer below:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has sold extremely well so far, becoming the 20th best-selling game ever tracked in U.S history by NPD, while Activision-Blizzard stated in its Q4 2020 financial results conference call that the company is now looking to apply the "Call of Duty model" to its other franchises.

A new Call of Duty game is coming in Fall 2021, though at this time the developer has not been confirmed. BlizzCon 2021, or BlizzConline, is coming up in a few days, where Blizzard will be showing more of upcoming major titles like Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, though neither of these games are set to be released in 2021.
