The Black Ops series explores life as an undercover agent, with the sub-franchise taking us on missions for numerous US Presidents, such as John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. 

But the team does blur a lot of lines between what is allowed and what is morally questionable, and they've even turned on each other more than once. In two cases, we've been allowed to kill Alex Mason, who is supposed to be one of our unrelenting allies. Still, neither death has been canon, just an alternate ending.

It looks like the Black Ops crew is set to turn on each other yet again, as new Easter eggs in Warzone and an update on the Call of Duty blog infer that Frank Woods is turning on us all.

Having already confirmed the reintroduction of Woods and Adler in Black Ops 6, alongside Saddam Hussein, Black Ops 6's campaign promotion is well underway.

In this latest promo connecting with Warzone, Call of Duty has revealed that Woods is a "mole" and has gone "rogue". "It appears a rogue Black Ops agent has accessed Operator Infil Comms, and has been identified as Frank Woods," the blog reads.

It continues to say that there is a current manhunt for Woods involving the Urzikstan bunkers, which we now know were opened by padding in "Sally" in number form.

Despite these teasers, what is the flagship slogan of Black Ops 6? As painted on Mount Rushmore: The Truth Lies. Call of Duty lies. 

Straight off the bat of these teasers, we're wagering that Woods isn't a mole. He's never shown any notions of backstabbing the Black Ops crew, and given that BO6 is supposed to align with the other games in the series, we know that he survives anything that we throw his way and continues to work for the military.

Given Bell and Adler are much more likely to be shifty, it's more reasonable that Woods is being framed at the expense of these meddlesome antagonists, and the campaign will involve clearing his name. It's only a hunch, though. Just bookmark this for November.

This timeline gets quite messy as it intertwines with Black Ops 2, and who knows the fate of the other expected-to-be-dead characters, like Jason Hudson?
