Looks pretty good, coming from a non-COD guy. Also, I think two ps5-related dates were confirmed by that trailer: 1. 9/9/20 is the date of the next ps5 event (announced as the date of the COD multiplayer reveal); and 2. Ps5 will release on 11/13/20 alongside COD.

Some rumours suggest that the game will run at 4K and 120fps with ray tracing on next gen consoles.

"Cross-Gen Bundle"?! I've never seen that... but they could start doing that for other games as well..

Looks interesting. I'm glad it's a direct continuation of Black Ops. I think either the PS5 or Xbox Series X is launching Nov 13 as well.
