Ranked play is still coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, developer Treyarch has insisted.
In an October 2020 interview conducted ahead of the release of Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch's David Vonderhaar suggested ranked play was coming to the game. "Do you know a Black Ops game without a hardcore competitive agenda?" he said. "Can you think of one? I cannot."
But we haven't heard about ranked play since, leaving some players to wonder if it's still in the works.
