Treyarch and Raven are definitely leaning hard into the 80s stuff, for better or worse. As confirmed by Raven Software's Dan Vondrak Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops, featuring favorite characters like Woods, Hudson, and Mason. Interestingly, the game will also be less linear than most CoD games, offering up branching paths, side missions, and multiple endings. Need to know more?
