Call of Duty Black Ops 6 Teaser Trailer Embraces 90s Era, Confirms Gulf War Setting

By Divyam Dubey - May 29, 2024
Traditionally, Activision releases new Call of Duty games in October or November, and it's anticipated that this pattern will persist this year with the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 6.

Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled the live-action teaser trailer for Black Ops 6, titled "The Truth Lies" confirming the game's Gulf War setting. The most surprising reveal is the appearance of Saddam Hussein throughout the campaign. Despite being just under a minute long, the teaser promises several exciting elements for fans. At the Xbox Showcase on June 9, 2024, Activision will fully reveal the content of Black Ops 6. According to the teaser, the character resembles Saddam Hussein, the infamous leader of Iraq. Intriguingly, the coordinates are shown in the teaser point to the Victory Over America Palace in Baghdad, which Saddam built to celebrate his supposed triumph over the Americans during the Gulf War. Although the palace was seized by US soldiers in 2003 and never completed, this suggests that Saddam Hussein might be a central antagonist in Call of Duty: Black Ops 6.

Will old Characters Return?

In the new Black Ops series, it's likely that familiar heroes like Frank Woods, Alex Mason, Jason Hudson, and Russell Adler will have key parts in the story. They're expected to try and stop a threat, possibly Saddam, but Call of Duty hasn't confirmed this officially.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Release Date?

Activision typically launches new Call of Duty games in October or November, and this year seems to be no exception. Following the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9, there's a plan to reveal and discuss the upcoming game through a dedicated video stream. Signs from the announcement suggest it will be a fresh addition to the Black Ops series, and the later confirmation of Black Ops 6 by Activision supports this.

Black Ops 6 is set to debut not only on PC but also on Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Although Microsoft, now in control of Activision and its game series, has the power to make Call of Duty exclusive for Xbox, it has opted not to. Instead, Microsoft and Sony have struck a deal to keep Call of Duty games available on PlayStation until at least 2030. Furthermore, Microsoft is exploring bringing Call of Duty to Nintendo Switch, although it's still being determined how well the franchise will translate to that platform.
