Black Ops 6 Reveal Trailer Provides First Glimpse At 2024’s Call Of Duty


The first trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is out now. The trailer doesn’t show any footage, but is instead a live-action mood piece that features a number of real-world political leaders, including Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Margaret Thatcher, and Saddam Hussein.

The trailer’s thumbnail also contains coordinates that point to the location of Hussein’s palace. The game seems be themed around questioning the government’s version of facts. “If it’s the truth you seek, look in the dark,” reads a line from the trailer’s description. Take a look at the trailer below.

Hussein, the former president of Iraq who was sentenced to death by hanging, wouldn’t be the first real-life political leader to appear in a Call of Duty Black Ops game. Manuel Noriega, the former dictator of Panama, was featured in Black Ops II. Noriega unsuccessfully sued Activision over his appearance in the game.

Black Ops 6 is in the works at Raven Software and Treyarch and is reported to release in October, and it sounds like it will launch day one on Game Pass. Activision and Microsoft will further showcase Black Ops 6 on June 9 as part of a special broadcast dedicated entirely to the next entry in the FPS series.
