Is Call Of Duty 2024 About A War That Hasn’t Been In Many Games Yet?

While this year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III failed to live up to fans’ expectations (while Activision Blizzard is beating its chest in vain and claiming success, the ratings for the franchise are disappointing), we’re already hearing rumours about next year’s instalment…


Treyarch is working on Call of Duty 2024, so there’s a good chance that next year’s instalment will be part of the Black Ops branding, and Jez Corden, writing for Windows Central, has some details. According to him, the game will be set in the early 1990s and will cover the events of the Gulf War, giving us a chance to see what CIA agents were doing in the Middle East in the title codenamed Cerberus.

The game will reportedly be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War (following the naming style of the studio’s previous game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War), and Treyarch plans to give it an in-depth narrative (as far as the franchise is capable of) as we will see events from multiple perspectives. We’ve also heard that the 2003 Iraq War and George W. Bush’s international war on terror could be used in the game, but Corden hasn’t written about that, but it’s clear that it could be a hornet’s nest for the studio, so they’ll have to be careful with the setting and events.

Corden says that Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War will have a significant early access period. Sure, there will be the usual few days of early access to the full experience, but there will also be elements that may be released even earlier, because unlike Sledgehammer Games, Treyarch didn’t have a year and a half to develop the game, but about 4 years before it launches in the autumn (I wonder if they’ll keep pushing for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports…).

All this is unofficial, of course, but it seems that Microsoft is not stopping Treyarch’s development. The annual Call of Duty is getting very boring.
