The announcement of this year’s new Call Of Duty seems to be imminent, with the same mysterious Red Door teaser appearing on the Xbox store.
If it follows the normal routine this year’s new Call Of Duty will be released in late October or early November, and yet it’s mid-July now and we still haven’t had an official announcement.
We’ve had a few hints, via Cold War themed Easter eggs in Warzone – which seem to confirm rumours that this year’s new Call Of Duty is a Black Ops game – but nothing concrete.
The latest rumours suggest an August reveal is likely but that does not seem to have been the original plan, with fans now having found evidence of an alpha version of the game called The Red Door on both PlayStation and Xbox.
It’s only dataminers that have been able to confirm that The Red Door has anything to do with Call Of Duty, although the fact that the newly discovered Xbox listing is published by Activision and is classified as a shooter is a bit of a giveaway.
Exactly what The Red Door is, is still not clear but the assumption has been that it is some kind of demo or alpha version of the game, similar to the version of Star Wars Squadrons that secretly turned up on PSN as Project Maverick.
It’s getting a bit late in the day for an alpha so the new theory is that The Red Door will actually be released as a beta, once the game is announced in August. Either that or it’ll just be skipped entirely because there’s no time.
For now though you can see it clearly advertised on the Microsoft store, with the following cryptic description:
‘There is more than one truth. If you go looking for answers, be ready to question everything and accept that nothing will ever be the same. The Red Door awaits, do you dare step through it?’
Whether any of this relates to the real game’s story is unclear but this, and the secret code words in Warzone, do recall the brainwashing techniques that were a key part of the original Black Ops’ storyline.
