Treyarch’s Call Of Duty Black Ops 2024 Is Reportedly Set During The Gulf War
Treyarch’s next Call of Duty Black Ops game, which is expected to launch in the year 2024, is reportedly set during the Gulf War.
Earlier in April, information leaked via a Call of Duty Warzone Mobile datamine had hinted at the possibility of Treyarch’s 2024 Call of Duty Black Ops title being set during the Gulf War. It was mentioned that the latter would be a direct sequel to Black Ops: Cold War. This information has now been corroborated by known Call of Duty insider CoD_Perseus.
The prior leak also revealed a few other details regarding Call of Duty Black Ops 2024. Based on the information, the game’s multiplayer is planned to be limited to 6 vs 6 modes. Additionally, it was mentioned that the Time To Kill would be in the same ballpark as that of Black Ops 4. The game is also said to retain the sliding mechanic, and Tactical Sprint will only last a few seconds after being triggered.
As always, we urge our readers to take all rumors with a grain of salt until there is some sort of official confirmation.
The previous entry in the Call of Duty Black Ops series, Cold War, is a 2020 first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch and Raven Software and published by Activision. It was made available worldwide on November 13, 2020, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It was also added to the PS Plus Extra and Premium game catalog during the month of July, 2023.
This installment serves as the sixth entry in the Black Ops series and the seventeenth overall in the Call of Duty franchise. It is the second Call of Duty title since 2011’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 to be jointly developed by two studios. The game’s campaign is set in the early 1980s, during the Cold War era, chronologically taking place between Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010) and Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012). It revolves around the pursuit of Perseus, an alleged Soviet spy aiming to undermine the United States and shift the balance of power towards the Soviet Union.
