Rumor: Xbox Showcase in June to Feature Call of Duty 2024 - News

Following a rumor that Gears of War 6 might get announced this Summer at the annual Xbox Showcase in June, it is being reported by The Verge the next Call of Duty will be showcased at the event.

"As the Xbox strategy continues to evolve inside Microsoft and Choudhry’s departure triggers more shake-ups, Microsoft is in the middle of planning for its big summer Xbox showcase," said journalist Tom Warren. "I understand this is set to take place on Sunday, June 9th, and Microsoft is currently planning to announce a new Gears of War game at the show.

"A Gears announcement won’t be the only new Xbox game at the show, which will also include release dates for upcoming Xbox games like Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024AvowedIndiana Jones and the Great Circle, and of course, a new Call of Duty that’s set to debut later this year."

Microsoft during the Xbox 360 era had the marketing rights for the Call of Duty franchise and during that time showcased the next entry in the franchise at its annual Xbox showcase at E3.

Sony gained the marketing rights for Call of Duty in 2015 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and it ended with 2023's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

It could launch a week before on GamePass and COD will still suck dick.

I always look forward to the Xbox Showcase. Hope to see some updates to their already announced games more than anything though.

Seriously. They have to pony up on many of their previous "announcement bills."

it would arguably be more exciting if they announced CoD 2024 wasn’t gonna be at the Xbox Showcase. Especially after last year, it’s clear some greater amount of time and polish is needed for this franchise.

Didn't MS say (in the time before the acquisition was finished) CoD would release every two years to improve quality? I guess watching how much it sold at its lowest last year proved quality isn't important for CoD player anymore lol.

They never said CoD would suddenly become biennial. They have stated to moving it there if it makes sense, but it's clearly going to take some coordination between all the teams to get to that point. The team working on the current CoD is already on track for this year's release. MS isn't going to interrupt any current plans unless they have to.

Not surprising, what would be surprising is if Microsoft owning Activision now actually made the single player portion of the games quality.

2 possible scenarios:
1) The rumor is wrong because the exclusive marketing deal with Sony still lasts until the end of 2025.
2) The rumor is right and must mean that the MS/Sony deal regarding CoD has been made to supersede the prior marketing agreement between ABK and Sony?

I thought the deal ended q1 2024 based on leaked documents?

Your right my mistake.
CoD a June showcase is then plausible & logical. I just hope MS create a separate segment as it did with Bethesda last year, adding a 15-30 min to the show instead of cramming more into the same amount of time.

If it comes to gamepass I will play them for their story. I won't pay full price for them lol

why even play the story? you’re just wasting an afternoon at that point. (The way I see it, as a Nintendo fan, is you could either do a play through of a game like Mario Bros 3 or progress through some temples in Ocarina of Time…or you can play a 4/10 experience.)

I think CoD sucks but I’m sure you enjoy a lot of stuff plenty of people think sucks. Don’t preach about your taste.
