The captions began to appear on the evening of August 7 — they were noticed by several players in the shareware Call of Duty: Warzone. After opening the bunker on the map, some users saw the phrase “Know your history” on the screen, while others saw the inscription in Russian”Doomed to repeat it”.
Apparently, these are teasers of the next part of Call of Duty. Eurogamer sources previously reported that it will get the subtitle Black Ops Cold War, which was also confirmed by a leak of the game’s promo campaign in Doritos. The inscriptions that players saw in Warzone correspond to this name and, apparently, refer to the Cold war between the United States and the USSR.
Activision has not yet officially announced the next Call of Duty, but hinted that the game will be shown on August 10 — until this date, the publisher asked its partners not to disclose the boxes that the company sent them.
In Call of Duty: Warzone, as in modern Warfare multiplayer, the fifth season started in early August. By this time, the number of users in the shareware shooter exceeded 75 million.
