Report: Call of Duty 2024 is a Black Ops Game Set During the Gulf War - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 02 December 2023 / 5,008 Views

Treyarch is developing Call of Duty 2024 and details on the game looks to have leaked. The game is part of the Black Ops series and is set during the Gulf War, according to multiple sources who spoke with Windows Central.

The game will reportedly "lean back into more traditional military combat technology and familiar Black Ops gadgetry as opposed to the current and near-future tech we've seen from Modern Warfare and some other recent Call of Duty titles."

The story in the game will "attempt to explore a nuanced narrative of the Gulf War, with a critical focus on different participants within the conflict. It will dovetail into the end of the Cold War era, and explore some of the consequences therein."

It is also being reported that Activision is looking into offering early access for those who pre-order the game. This could be several days for the base game and possibly weeks for access to other modes.

The latest entry in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, released for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 10.

not many people. Because no russian level from MW2 was by far the most constroversial.

So does this mean they will actually make a campaign again? BO4 didn't feel like a BO game at all without the campaign.

I will be looking forward to their new zombie mode. Nobody does that better than Treyarch.

WaW zombie mode that started it all was definitely really fun for nostalgia but I really enjoyed BO3 zombies the most and it was a nice conclusion to the original team.

This one should be pretty good, as it is the first CoD game to get 4 years of development in a long time, possibly ever. Treyarch's last CoD was a Holiday 2020 release, Sledgehammer developed both the 2021 and 2023 CoD, while Infinity Ward did 2022. This will be a real test to see if extra development time can have a meaningful impact on the quality of CoD releases, if CoD 2024 does well in both sales and reviews, I think Xbox really needs to consider making CoD an every other year series instead of yearly, giving each game more development time, and freeing up some of the CoD support studios to work on other things.

I'm not sure they would go every other year, but maybe do 2 or 3 years in a row then take a year off.

They definitely need to do something. 3 years (or less as was the case with both of CoD Vanguard and MW3 2023) is just not cutting it anymore, and keeping to that strict of a release schedule is locking up literally every Activision studio on CoD. CoD needs more than 3 years of dev time, and studios like Toys for Bob and Beenox need to be freed up from CoD support so that they can make their own games again.

3 years in a row with a main CoD game, and then one year off (maybe do a CoD warzone sequel on the off years, or a remake of an older CoD) would give each studio 4 years instead of 3, and free up some CoD support studios.

Yeah 3 years in a row then 1 year off I could see happening. 4 years instead of 3 years to develop an entry can make a big difference and free up other studios to develop other games.

Or maybe they need to reduce the development time.

Having a single technological foundation for all COD games would be a good start point rather than split game engines which takes away from development time for all the developers.

Setup a developer for that specific purpose... Or start using idtech... Which the Call of Duty Engine is originally derived from anyway.

Aren't they all using Infinity Ward's IW engine these days? I know Treyarch and Sledgehammer used to use their own engines which were IW engine offshoots which they had upgraded from IW 3.0 and IW 5.0 respectively, separately from Infinity Ward's own IW engine upgrade path to the current 9.0 iteration, but I thought all 3 main CoD studios plus Raven on CoD Warzone used IW engine 9.0 now?

Edit: Ok, looked into it, Infinity Ward, Raven, and Sledgehammer are all 3 on IW 9.0 right now, Sledgehammer moved from their own Sledgehammer Engine (customized IW 5.0) to IW 8.0 as of 2021's CoD Vanguard, and Sledgehammer used MW2 2022's IW 9.0 for this year's CoD MW3, as did Raven use IW 9.0 on CoD Warzone 2.0

So Treyarch is the only CoD dev not using the latest version of the IW engine now, they are still using their own engine which is a customized upgrade path from IW 3.0 that they began way back in 2008 on CoD Word at War. Definitely seems like Treyarch needs to just move to the latest build of IW, 9.0, hopefully they already did that for 2024's CoD game from them.

I think the black ops series is pretty well made except for 4 when they got so lazy...

They did add blackout battle royale.

Bo 1/2/3/ cold war had great campaigns!

I'm currently playing Ghost Extinction!
A very underrated gamemode and they really should make a remaster or remake of this forgotten sub genre

Didn't they say that they were going to skip a year?

VAMatt deerox (on 25 November 2023)

2023 was that year. This year was supposed to just be an expansion for last year's CoD (and many have argued that it essentially is expansion, just dressed up like a new game).

You're wrong.

99% of people buying COD does not care about the campaign. Why should they make it any longer other than having people like you who probably never played COD in the first place stop bitching about for some reason?
