A retro television plays a long video with history from the 1960s.
The preventive campaign for the announcement of Call of Duty 2020 Full speed ahead. As we reported a few days ago, Activision began to give clues about the new game recently, through mysterious images and a secret web page that has come to life and where an extensive video is played, which seems to confirm the Cold War as a setting for this year’s FPS.
An extensive video composed of news fragmentsThe website pawntakespawn.com/tv displays a desk with a telephone, a television, a VCR, and a cassette that can be inserted into the VCR, and activates a long video made up of news clips from the 1960s, featuring stories about the Cold War, the space race, the Vietnam War and, true to the concept of Black Ops, numbers without context, both on screen and in the player itself.
The cassette is labeled with the legend “1961-1962 v.1” and its content lasts around 10 minutes, at which point it rewinds and starts again. Presumably, then, there will be more videos and more information as the days go by.
Thanks to Bloomberg insider Jason Schreier, we’ve known since the spring of this year that Call of Duty 2020 aims to be a reboot of the Black Ops saga with its debut scheduled for the fall, despite the health crisis and a marked delay in its revelation. Not only that, the journalist also revealed, since the middle of last year, that the delivery would be the responsibility of Treyarch and not Sledgehammer Games as a symptom of crisis within the development team. A couple of weeks ago, Activision himself confirmed Treyarch and Raven Software as producers of the game.
