Rumor Watch: Next Call of Duty Game is a Black Ops Reboot

Coming from a reliable source who previously has broken and covered numerous accurate Call of Duty leaks comes fresh information about the upcoming 2020 release. Tentatively it will be a more gritty and gory campaign that focuses on the events of the Vietnam War.

Given how Call of Duty is played by children, a fact Activision is well aware of, and given the microscope Activision is currently under from investors and increasingly nationalistic/populous governments it doesn’t take a psychic to see the controversy this will stir leading up to its release if it persists in peddling gory torture scenes to children.

Let’s cut to the chase, it appears from the leaks that while the multiplayer will be the typical Call of Duty foray, the campaign appears to be following Modern Warfare’s outright propaganda angle. Though unlike the former game there won’t be a disgusting attempt to use veterans as a shield for its controversial elements and “Muh Evil Russia,” narrative.

Set during the Vietnam war the game will have a heavy focus on the pointlessness of war, that war itself cannot be won as we are all humans. Cynically upon hearing this, my thoughts drifted to this being a commentary on the culture war showing that every side has a humanistic element that renders the idea of war pointless as we are all human beings.

Always wondered if these people ever realized the reductionist viewpoint wherein individual agency and its collective extension are removed rendering the idea of loss of life to be entirely pointless. Thus negating from a philosophical standpoint their entire premise as a counter-argument for war. Complaining about losing a person would be like complaining you lost a skin cell. Perhaps meaningful, but overall pointless. That by extension if the driving forces, i.e., cultural identity, individual wants, beliefs, etc., are all equally meaningless expressions then the idea of anti-war by its own inherent premise is negated as just another meaningless expression from within the collective.

Yet the socialist always elevate themselves above the shapeless clay they condemn humanity into being, so in expressing this viewpoint they reveal themselves in their attempts at appearing moderate. Well reading that you probably just spent more time contemplating higher concepts than the people who wrote the story for this upcoming game did.
