Rumors Indicate the Next Call of Duty Could Be Black Ops 6

18. May 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

The next Call of Duty title set to release this year is stirring up excitement, as it will be the first in the series with a full three-year development cycle. Speculation is rife that Treyarch is hinting at the return of its acclaimed sub-franchise with Call of Duty: Black Ops 6.

Clues Hidden in Warzone

A significant clue comes from a new weapon blueprint added to Warzone today, named “Sally.” This blueprint features akimbo pistols with the name etched into the weapons along with six tallies. Many players have found the weapon as ground loot in the battle royale game, unlocking the blueprint by achieving a kill with it.

The six tallies on the pistols have sparked memories of the original Black Ops cover art among gamers, leading them to post their discoveries online.

Treyarch has been engaging with these posts, replying with emojis such as a winky face or eyes, which seems like an unofficial confirmation that the 2024 CoD title will indeed be the sixth installment in the Black Ops series.

The Anticipation Builds

Treyarch’s last game, 2020’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, was the fifth entry in the sub-franchise, making the next one the sixth. Whether it will be titled Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, Black Ops VI, or Black Ops Six remains to be seen, but the anticipation is palpable.

Potential Setting and Theme

Rumors and leaks suggest that the new game might be set during the Gulf War era, leading some to speculate it could be called Black Ops Gulf War. However, this title is considered a bit cumbersome, with Black Ops 6 sounding more appealing and straightforward.
