Call Of Duty 2024 Reportedly Explores Iraq And Afghanistan Conflicts
Following on from a successful meander through the Cold War era, Treyarch is set to take the Black Ops series towards another global conflict, one that will see Iraq and Afghanistan be explored through conflicts in the Gulf War, Iraq War, and the War in Afghanistan involving the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, and NATO.
Opting for a chronological timeline of real-life conflicts, Treyarch began Cold War in 1981, through the campaign which delved into proxy wars in Vietnam, Turkey, and East Berlin. The multiplayer efforts then moved the timeline on towards 1985 through Warzone and Cold War seasonal content.
Now, leaks suggest that Call of Duty 2024 will begin in the early 1990s with the Gulf War and continue on through to the early 2000s with Iraq and Afghanistan as the main countries of interest.
Leakers Suggest Call Of Duty 2024 Will Look At Iraq And Afghanistan Conflicts
Previous leaks told Treyarch fans that Call of Duty 2024 will begin with the Gulf War, which span from August 1990 to January 1991. However, new missions have now come to light, as well renowned leaker "TheGhostOfHope" has claimed that the campaign will also cover "Operation Iraqi Freedom" and "Operation Enduring Freedom".
Operation Iraqi Freedom was a war in Iraq between 2003 and 2011, which began with the United States-led invasion that led to the overthrowing of Saddam Hussein and his government regime.
Operation Enduring Freedom was a Global War on Terrorism, which started with the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and ended with the killing of Osama bin Laden in December 2014.
Will Saddam Hussein And Bin Laden Regimes Feature In Call Of Duty 2024?
The Call of Duty franchise is no stranger to exploring real life conflicts, given that the Cold War, World War I, and World War II have all been portrayed within the series since its conception. While the fighting parties have often been representative of real-life, ensuring that the sides were accurate, the game has always avoided using real individuals and names. Instead, they reimagine characters with CoD-specific protagonists and villains.
Going into Call of Duty 2024, it appears that the two operations will see some of the series' characters (like Mason Woods and Alex Hudson) tackle a made-up franchise of the Al-Qaeda and Ba'ath Government, or another special forces enemy which operates within Iraq and Afghanistan at the time of the wars.
The leaks may be subject to change though, given that Treyarch has two years to develop their 2024 instalment of the Call of Duty series, following a hiatus from an annual release seeing Modern Warfare 2 span over this period.
