After many months of speculation, Activision has finally unveiled the much-awaited Call of Duty: Black Ops 6.

The latest entry in the long-running franchise is shrouded in secrecy, but a cryptic teaser video hints at a “dark new chapter.”

The announcement comes alongside a short video titled “Wake up (Rushmore) #thetruthlies.”

The video depicts presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt with black blindfolds on Mount Rushmore. The blindfolds themselves bear the message “The Truth Lies.”

This veiled message, also contained in one of the several posts made by Call of Duty on X, has fans buzzing about the potential storyline for Black Ops 6. In less than 24 hours, the posts gained over 6 million views on X and more than 2 million views on YouTube.

The game, developed by renowned developers, studios Treyarch and Raven Software, returns to the traditional Black Ops setting for the first time since 2020’s Black Ops: Cold War.

Although the teaser tried to keep things as cryptic as possible, it still offers some clues, especially the three-headed wolf emblem on Abraham Lincoln’s blindfold. This emblem ties back to a previous newspaper ad and Black Ops’ most recent outing, Modern Warfare 3. This has sparked speculation about a potential connection between the two games.

As questions mount around where the game is set, CharlieIntel has taken to X to suggest that the Black Ops 6 game was set during the Gulf War and will be available on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox.

While rumors are rife with a November launch, fans must hold their horses until the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase on June 9th. Activision has promised a full reveal during the event, which will likely be followed by a dedicated Black Ops 6 Direct broadcast, to provide more details about the game’s story, setting, and gameplay.
