Rumor: the next CoD will be Black Ops Gulf War, developed by Treyarch
The always well-informed journalist Jez Corden has in fact received from his sources the first information, obviously strictly unofficial and unconfirmed, relating to the next game that would be developed by Treyarch and would be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War, continuing on the popular Black Ops strand of the Californian studio; the sixth in the saga.
As the title suggests, the game would be set during the Gulf War, when Saddam Hussein's Iraq invaded Kuwait and was then faced by an alliance of Western military powers led by the United States of George Bush senior. The U.S. military operation was called Desert Storm, and it was the first to receive widespread live media coverage, with press sites broadcasting any time, even to videos of smart bomb cameras being dropped on enemies. It was also one of the largest tank battles ever fought after World War II, when drone warfare was not yet a reality.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War will therefore offer us a less technological war than Modern Warfare, focused on Black Ops intelligence operations and, according to Corden's sources, with a narrative that will fit into the context of the end of the Cold War and explore some of its consequences.
For now, the information ends here: we just have to wait for the official announcement, which will arrive in many months anyway, or other leaks about the game!
