Black Ops 6 has been ‘playable’ for two years, it claims

May 23, 2024 by No Comments

Activision finally lifted the lid on Black Ops 6 earlier today, revealing key art and the game’s title. This comes after months of speculation about ‘Call of Duty 2024’ and we don’t know much about the game, but some details have been clarified since teaser snippets started appearing online.

Recently, an employee at Treyarch revealed on social media that they have been playtesting Black Ops 6 for two years, stressing that we are ‘not ready’ for the game. While we know Black Ops 6 benefited from a longer development cycle than usual, knowing that it’s been somewhat playable for two years is really something.

A Long Time Coming

On Twitter, Treyarch Nicole HavinWorking in game designer roles at the company since 2022, she confirmed that she has been testing Black Ops 6 for two years:

In fact, given the typical development cycle of games, a build that Treyarch would have been ‘playtesting’ two years ago could have been the framework of a title that was miles away from hitting the market. Regardless, it’s interesting to note that Black Ops 6 will be playable in at least a few states longer than it took Modern Warfare 3 to fully develop.

Earlier today, Activision revealed the art and title for this year’s Call of Duty, satisfying the eagerness of fans around the world and finally clarifying that this iteration will be a follow-on of sorts from 2020’s Black Ops Cold War. We’ve been seeing hints in the teasers that refer to the Gulf War, so the rumors and claims that the game will be set during the 1990 – 1991 conflict are well founded.
