After the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, it so happens that the next game in 2024 is going to be a Black Ops title. This will reportedly be the next instalment in the Black Ops sub-series and is being developed by Treyarch.

Moreover, the game will be focused on the Gulf War and possibly follow-in on the events after the Cold War. The game will take players back to the ’90s era, and we’re likely to see the return of older weapons and gear, along with the famous Zombies mode.

The New Black Ops Will Take Us Back in Time, Amidst the Gulf War

The next game will be set in the '90s, and we're likely to see more historic figures and locations.

According to insiders at Windows Central, the game has been in development for quite some time now. It’s important to keep in mind that this version of Black Ops is being made by Treyarch, a studio known for creating the legendary sub-series starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010) and recently assisting Sledgehammer Games with Zombies and Ranked Play modes for Modern Warfare 3.

Speculations suggest that the studio is gearing up to soon introduce the world to the next game in the series. The next game will be set during the events of the Gulf War and focus on characters affiliated with the CIA. There’s also a mention of Operation Desert Storm as a major attraction for events, and it features epic tank battles and a warfare scenario that was still finding its footing in newer technology.

In contrast to the latest tech players have been witnessing in recent games, the next Black Ops will take a backseat and ask players to use classier styles of gear and weapons. Furthermore, the game will also feature the return of Zombies mode, which has been recently popularized by Modern Warfare 3.

Like previous games in the sub-series, there’s a good chance players will get to meet iconic (and historic) figures that have shaped the narrative so far. Add to that the historic events that may inspire much of the storytelling; there’s a lot to look forward to.

Call of Duty Has Been Struggling as of Late

With a new narrative and the Zombies mode being key attractions, maybe there's still hope for the franchise.

The reception of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 hasn’t been the nicest one. In fact, critics and players globally didn’t refrain from expressing their concerns for the franchise, given the half-baked nature of its campaign and a multiplayer mode that wasn’t innovating a lot. We covered this at length in our reviews for the same, and it’s not clear as to where the franchise plans on taking its approach with future games.

However, another entry into the Black Ops sub-series may be a good thing for the game’s future. After all, players can draw a fresh breath and step into a narrative that’s slightly deeper and different than what we experience in Modern Warfare games. The last game, Black Ops: Cold War, has been receiving quite a few positive remarks and holds a consistent ‘Very Positive’ rating on Steam.

The game was a direct sequel, where players experienced the geopolitical ups and downs of the Cold War. With a 1980s backdrop, the game delved into a fresh hemisphere of rock-n-roll-esque shootouts, facing historical figures that added to the game’s gripping narrative.

We’ll have to put our faith in Treyarch this time to deliver on a campaign that can hopefully re-spark players’ interest in the single-player aspects of Call of Duty.

It’s important to note that this will be the second game in the series after Microsoft’s massive Activision Blizzard acquisition. This deal has put Xbox under the spotlight for showcasing some big studios and games that may shift the industry’s standards in the future. Moreover, it gives the Xbox community a lot to look forward to.
