Rumor: Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 to Launch on Last Generation Consoles - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 June 2024 / 3,916 Views

Activision last week officially a Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, however, the platforms have yet to be revealed. 2023's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III did launch for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Insider Gaming spoke with multiple sources that claim Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will not only launch for current generation consoles, but also on last generation consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

This followed a leak image that showed the pre-order page for the game at GameStop that revealed the game would come out for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 4. It is believed the Xbox Series X|S will be a cross-generation version that can also work on the Xbox One.

The "first in-depth look at all-new gameplay and product announcements" for Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will be announced during a special Direct on June 9, immediately following the Xbox Game Showcase.

It was reported earlier this month that Microsoft plans to launch Call of Duty 2024 day one on Xbox Game Pass this Fall.

Don't they have to release it on Switch based on what they provided to the FTC?

They probably worked it out with Nintendo. Could be a day one Switch 2 game. Maybe they'll put Black Ops 1 and 2 on Switch this holiday.

That is so incredibly lame. Holiday 2024 is 4 years into the generation, Xbox is said to be releasing their next-gen hardware Holiday 2026, and here we are in 2024 with AAA games still releasing on the archaic Xbox One and PS4, smh.

Speaks more to the state of the whole industry. Tech has slowed down to the point where people are still happy with eleven-year-old games and systems. It's a real problem, and I don't really know the answer to it.

Yeah, I read that 47% of the Playstation CoD playerbase is still playing CoD on PS4, not PS5, so I'm sure that is why they are still releasing on PS4, and the numbers are probably about 50/50 on Xbox One and Xbox Series as well. Seems like Sony and Microsoft badly need to run some strong discounts on PS5 and Xbox Series hardware soon, to get these last gen stragglers moved over to the new generation finally.

If true this seems absurd. By the time this launches the amount of people still buying games for the PS4 and Xbox One will be so small that it'll barely make any real difference in the final sales total. Almost every big game going forward other than certain sports titles won't be releasing on those platforms any more for a reason.

Sony announced recentky they 120 active PSN subscribers. Half of those are still on PS4 that haven't upgraded to PS5. That audience is still massive.

A large amount of people still playing games on the old consoles doesn't mean anything for continuing to release new ones on them if those people aren't buying new games.

They're on the ps4 because they keep releasing multi gen titles.

Time to have higher sales again but doubt it with day one gamepass if that ever comes to fruition
