To put it in one sentence, with the leaked information provided by a gaming insider known under the nickname of dom_lucrea, the main part of the game’s plot may be based on the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

This revelation, summarised by the catchphrase, ‘The Truth Lies,’ has sparked heated discussion on what certain revelations mean for the future of the franchise.

Black Ops 6 Shocks Fans with Potential 9/11 Mission

Before, it was believed that SOCOM was based on the Gulf War, which was a relatively localized conflict, however, with the leak of the 9/11 mission, this theory has been turned on its head. Fans have waited impatiently hoping for an official announcement which should happen during the Xbox conference on June 10th.

I found that Black Ops 6 was rumored to be released alongside Xbox Game Pass, which would be quite interesting if true since we can see that Activision Blizzard seems to be undergoing a shift under Microsoft’s umbrella.

This strategic partnership could alter the current way in which ambitious titles are provided to players, thereby offering a potential new era in the Call of Duty series.

However, there is an issue of USC which is a potential 9/11 mission of the car having raised well-founded questions of sensitivity and historical accuracy.

While trying to portray the culture and people as truthfully as possible, which is very much a laudable goal, the creators are stuck with the dilemma of not being able to create an entertaining game while simultaneously adhering to cultural sensibilities.

The leak has reportedly elicited mixed reactions from the gamers with many having more to say about the leak, be it positive or negative.

While some find the narrative choices showy and daring, others express their concern about the tendency to use a real-life tragedy as a plot twist.

Nevertheless, Call of Duty Black Ops 6 features all the elements that will make it an important one in the series. Since the release date is still set close, now focus on Treyarch Studios as they wait to take gaming to another level.
