The last year proved to be a great one for the Call of Duty franchise. A lot of pros and fans were skeptical about how well Black Ops Cold War would do given Modern Warfare and Warzone were still in their prime. However, BOCW managed to live up to the huge hype that it had built prior to its release.
BOCW surely hit a few speed bumps on the way because of the occasional glitches and issues. But overall, the game turned out to be a tremendous success, especially in its single-player mode.
2020 was quite profitable for the gaming industry. With almost the entire human population stuck at home, people mostly only had video games to keep them company during the lockdown.
