Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was a much-anticipated game in 2023. It was the reprised version of the original Modern Warfare 3. The gaming community had high expectations from Sledgehammer Games to deliver one of the most iconic video games of all time. But the fans were left utterly disappointed after the game was released. No one expected it to happen.


But with the latest rumors, it looks like that scenario could soon change. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 had practically nothing in the name of a single-player campaign. It has been announced that the next game under the Call of Duty banner is Black Ops Gulf War. Even though not every detail is known about it, rumors suggest that there could be a massive update that could right the wrongs of Modern Warfare 3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War Could Have An Open World

The disappointed single-player campaign of CoD: MW3 had left the fans fuming. Even the voice actor of Kratos, Christopher Judge, joked about the campaign. Fans always have high expectations since it is such a prestigious franchise in the gaming world. But with CoD: Black Ops Gulf War, everything might soon change. Rumors suggest it could feature an open world.


The Call of Duty franchise has had a linear single-player campaign, which made the players follow a single story without the scope of enjoying the open world. Insider Gaming has described Black Ops Gulf War to be more akin to the Far Cry franchise. The players can explore the surroundings without any pressure of completing missions, can ride vehicles, can unlock fast travel options, and can also do side missions to level up.

Instead of one map, the map might be divided into several regions. These additions could prove to be a great addition to the franchise. It might break the pattern of the last two decades, but it is for the betterment. For the moment, it is still not confirmed, but gamers will look forward to the announcement eagerly.

The Call of Duty Franchise Has Had Major Changes Done

After the Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard merger, the Call of Duty franchise went through a few major changes. The previous title of the franchise was produced by the Sledgehammer Games, but this time Raven Software is in charge of the task. The multiplayer and zombie modes will be developed by Treyarch.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the most downloaded game on PS5 in both US/Canada and EU.

Activision-Blizzard is going through a transition phase with Bobby Kotick resigning and Johanna Faries as the newly appointed President of Blizzard. The transition phase has seen several employees getting fired. Even the fans are having second thoughts when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise. But with Far Cry’s open-world approach, everything could change with one video game.

The exact release date of CoD: Black Ops Gulf War is yet to be announced. Gamers are expecting great things from the iconic franchise. It will be interesting to see whether the rumors are true and whether the open-world feature has any effect on the video game.
