Earlier this week we said that a Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War ARG was teasing an upcoming reveal for the next game in the series, leaked long ago as Black Ops – Cold War, that was set to happen today. But with the big day here, it appears that what we’re really getting, sorry to say, is more ARG.

That led to a different image of a typewritten message, rambling about tactics, codes, and a plot “decades in the making [that] will not be unraveled overnight.”
