This start time is also similar to the time that the last major update for Black Ops Cold War was released, so it seems as if it will be an accurate prediction to use.


Although we haven't had any word on whether you can pre-load the update yet, all the previous major updates have been found to have pre-loading features.

We now know that preloading is available on all platforms.
