UPDATE: Treyarch has since deleted the job listing and re-added it back without the mention of the 2020 year in it anymore.
A new job listing on Treyarch’s official site for a Senior Tools Engineer, which went live in the past few days apparently, has reportedly confirmed the earlier report from Kotaku that Treyarch is set to deliver a new Call of Duty game for 2020.
The new job listing states that “Treyarch is seeking a Senior Tools Engineer to join our Core Engine Team to deliver a next-generation AAA title in 2020.”
Kotaku reported a few weeks ago that Activision executive team had made the decision to put Treyarch in charge of Call of Duty 2020 after there were internal disagreements on the 2020 game that was supposed to come from Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software. Kotaku stated that the game will be set in the Cold War era, and Treyarch will lead development on the new ‘Black Ops 5’ title.
This new job listing is almost a confirmation of the report, and with the new PlayStation and Xbox consoles set to arrive in 2020, Treyarch’s 2020 game will most likely be cross generation title.
First details on the PlayStation 5 from Sony were announced in early May, with details on the specs for the console confirmed. Microsoft is expected to announce some early details on the new Xbox consoles at E3 2019. Both new consoles are expected to arrive in holiday 2020 season.
