The excitement for Call of Duty 2020 heightens as players received a unique teaser in Warzone, while actively battling out on the field.
The teaser didn’t come as a news update pop-up while opening the game nor while players were in the lobby. The Call of Duty 2020 teaser dropped while players were playing the Warzone as if some kind of Russian operatives hacked the screens.
“Know Your History” glitch-like message
Technically speaking, the Call of Duty 2020 game wasn’t officially revealed. The teaser came posing a screen glitch, which revealed the message, “Know Your History.”
The other message was in Russian, which in translation reads, “Condemned to repeat,” per Essentially Esports. The teaser drop disappeared very quickly, which could’ve been easily missed.
But, thanks to the very dedicated player base of Call of Duty, video snippets of the said teaser were uploaded online.
The gaming publication notes that the message may have been taken from George Santayana’s famous quote, which reads:
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
As to its relation to the highly teased Black Ops Cold War title, wherein CoD is heavily rumored to take the title back in time, specifically during the Cold War era.
This would be interesting to see how Activision will twist the gameplay with a historical take, and pairing it with the Black Ops franchise which is known for its “mind-bending plot elements,” per Gamespot.
Call of Duty 2020 release
Meanwhile, the next Call of Duty title is likely to be released sooner, taking into consideration the recent tweet from known CoD leaker, Charlie Intel. He recently received a package from Activision in the form of a locked crate.
This just arrived from Activision.

There’s a letter that reads, “Do not open this crate until August 10 at 12 PM ET.” In a subsequent tweet, the leaker notes that there’s an instruction written wherein he has to contact a number on Monday, to get a hold of the code for the lock.
Gamespot further reads into this, indicating a probable official release announcement. This type of “espionage-like tease is certainly on-brand for Black Ops,” the gaming publication reports.
Of course, these are mere speculations, which will likely be confirmed in a few hours, should Activision officially reveals the Call of Duty 2020 game on August 10.
Activision did say, during its recent earnings call, that the gaming community will hear from the CoD devs “fairly soon.” This in-game teaser drop did confirm the “tight integration” between Warzone and the next title.
