Treyarch's 2024 Call of Duty title will be set in the Gulf War, report claims

According to reports, Treyarch's next Call of Duty game will be part of the ongoing Black Ops series and will be set in the early 1990s during the Gulf War, with a focus on the CIA.

The details:

  • According to WindowsCentral, the next Black Ops game will be set during the Gulf War, which was fought between Iraq, then led by Saddam Hussein, and a US-led coalition of 42 countries from around the world. It will feature period-accurate technology with a narrative focus on the conflict's participants, specifically the CIA, which has played a significant role in the series thus far.

  • Insider Gaming and some leakers previously reported that the next COD will see the return of multiplayer maps from previous entries, similar to MW3, with BO1's WMD and BO2 DLC map Grind being named. It's also unclear whether zombies will return to the round-based structure of previous Treyarch games or stick to the DMZ-inspired mode included in MW3, but given the game's four-year development cycle, we could see some major changes.

  • One interesting claim is that Activision is currently investigating the possibility of granting weeks of early access to some of its modes, most likely zombies. For the last couple of COD releases, the campaign has been released a week early for those who pre-order, with Advanced Warfare giving players a day early access to its multiplayer.
