Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War to be Featured at Xbox Showcase in June

It’s been a wild 24 hours for Xbox Showcase rumors, and now Tom Warren at The Verge is reporting that this year’s Call of Duty title, Black Ops Gulf War, will also be featured at this year’s Xbox Showcase.

Insider Gaming can corroborate that this is the plan, but the game is currently set to be revealed prior to the showcase in a more ‘traditional fashion’ and outside of Warzone. Since 2020, previous Call of Duty titles have been revealed as a live event in the free-to-play Battle Royale, which attracts millions of players during the event.

It’s understood that Black Ops Gulf War will be revealed prior to Summer Games Fest in June. The showcase will feature some form of deep dive into the game, presumably a campaign mission walkthrough if they go traditional. We could then hear more about its multiplayer offering around August and zombies soon after.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Gulf War is to be released in October.

As previously reported, Insider Gaming understands that this year’s Call of Duty title will be an open-world campaign developed by Raven Software (multiplayer and zombies to be handled by Treyarch Games).

Speaking with sources, it’s been said that Xbox is gearing up for an announcement on its back catalog of games following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, too, so Gulf War might not be the only Call of Duty-related announcement that we’ll be hearing in June.

What do you think of Call of Duty going down a more traditional route with its announcements? Let us know down below!

    1. All of these should have come back by now Jet Force Gemini, Viva Piñata, The Last Story, Blue Dragon, Cry On, Whacked!, all of them should have come back by now but Phil and his staff just want their paycheck they don’t care about making games.

    2. Exactly they could have tapped so many markets and with the amount of studios they own they should be able to deliver. PlayStation has no first party exclusives coming out but they paid for Rise Of The Ronin, Stellar Blade, FFVII, and possibly Silent Hill to fill in this year meanwhile Xbox got lucky with Palworld then has nothing else.

  2. When’s the reveals for Bandai Namco, SEGA, Square Enix, Konami, Capcom, Take Two, and EA? Wondering bout their new stuff.

  3. It’s been over 10 years and Phil hasn’t brought any franchises back and there’s less exclusives then ever not to mention the game quality has gone down.

  4. The only way Xbox wins this showcase is if they announce they’re buying EA and Take2 because they need as much help as possible. GTA 6 in Game Pass would be huge alongside sports games and Red Dead 3 exclusive would move units.

  5. Xbox should just take on the Activistion Blizzard name and bring people like Cliff and Bungie staff back to Gears and Halo respectively and they would make a ton. Cliff has great ideas just needs money to fund it. Honestly maybe let him take on Overwatch since Lawbreakers was ahead of it.

  6. That’s not very impressive or a positive surprise they need actual good games they promised like in 2020 they would deliver at least 3-4 AAA exclusive games every quarter they still can’t fulfill that. It’s really not hard to make games when you have all this money. If Microsoft is such a great work environment then why do all the workers leave? Unlike Sony Microsoft recognizes developer unions and rights.
