Fresh inside information reveals new details on the next Call of Duty game releasing in 2024. As rumored, it will be a new Black Ops title focused on the Gulf War.
The Gulf War Setting
Multiple sources have confirmed to Windows Central that Call of Duty 2024 takes place during the Gulf War in the early 1990s. This lines up with previous leaks pointing to aircraft and weapons used during that conflict.
The game will spotlight different groups involved in the war and explore consequences of the end of the Cold War era. It leans into traditional military combat rather than futuristic technology.
Returning Black Ops Features
While not yet fully confirmed, there are signs that fan-favorite elements from past Black Ops games could return. This includes:
- Round-based zombie modes
- Remastered multiplayer maps like WMD and Grind
- CIA-focused missions and gadgets
Extensive Early Access
In a bid to drive pre-orders, Activision is considering offering weeks of early multiplayer and zombies access for those who pre-purchase. This caused controversy in World of Warcraft recently.
The game is expected around October/November 2024 as usual for Call of Duty titles.
