Will Call Of Duty Set In The Gulf War Feature An Open-World Campaign?

So, Call of Duty Black Ops: Gulf War is rumored to take the concept that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III outlined last year further with open-world missions.


Tom Henderson, a well-known insider, has written on his own website, Insider Gaming, that the 2024 Call of Duty will feature an open-world campaign similar to Far Cry. This means that no assets from previous Call of Duty episodes will be carried over by the developers. This sounds optimistic, but anything can go wrong in execution, and this case is no exception: a good idea would be ruined by rushed, terrible development…

“Currently, the game’s open world will see the player and their squad navigating a map more akin to that of Far Cry than anything we’ve seen before in the Call of Duty universe. Players will be able to use vehicles to get around, as well as a fast travel system to get from one point to the next. Although the scope of how many linear missions there will be remains to be seen, sources have confirmed that some linear missions will be integrated into the game,” Henderson wrote.

Call of Duty Black Ops: Gulf War is being developed by Raven Software, and several characters from the Black Ops games are said to be returning. Among them will definitely be Adler. The franchise’s story modes could also move in that direction, although Microsoft, the new owner of Activision Blizzard, could tinker with the ideas… but there’s also talk that the 2025 installment, currently codenamed Saturn, will also feature an open-world campaign. However, this project does not yet have a designated developer, so the tables could still be turned.

Microsoft may yet change the future of the franchise. With Call of Duty being released practically every year for two decades, this has to change at some point. Back in the day, Ubisoft took a chance with Assassin’s Creed…
