The relay that never ends sees Sledgehammer Games pass the baton to Treyarch, as Call of Duty's marathon continues to move from Modern Warfare to Black Ops 6.

But as the 21st lap of the CoD series nears, it looks like Treyarch isn't completing it on its own. Raven Software appears to be lending a limb for a three-legged race.

Having officially revealed Black Ops 6 to the world, Treyarch has also confirmed Raven Software's co-studio status. After working together on Black Ops Cold War, Raven Software is tipped to be the campaign's lead.

Ahead of the worldwide reveal of Black Ops 6 at the Xbox Showcase on June 9, Treyarch has confirmed that it will be joining forces with Raven Software.

"Tune in to the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9th at 10am PT to see what we've been cooking with RavenSoftware," Treyarch said on Twitter.

Raven Software has been the lead developer studio on Warzone for the last handful of years, where it's worked side-by-side with the main multiplayer studio to embed each game's setting into the battle royale properly.

However, this news suggests that Raven will now get much more personal on Black Ops 6, akin to how it teamed with Treyarch for Cold War.

Treyarch previously handed the reins to Raven Software for the Black Ops Cold War campaign, where the new hero Russell Adler joined returning faces Frank Woods and Alex Mason in taking down a Soviet anomaly called Perseus.

Now, it looks like Raven will continue the storyline as Black Ops 6 meanders the Gulf War, and subsequently tackles the leaked open-world setting, marking a first-of-its-kind storyline for the Call of Duty series.

Treyarch will undoubtedly be pouring all of its focus into Multiplayer and Zombies, the latter of which has fans salivating at the thought of an entire year of fully supported maps.
