The narratives of Black Ops and Modern Warfare could be about to get a little more “tight-nit”, so to speak, as an industry insider claims that Treyarch Studios and Infinity Ward are working to “align” the two stories.
Call of Duty has been in a three developer cycle ever since the Sledgehammer Games took the reigns with Advanced Warfare in 2014. Prior to Sledgehammer’s arrival, both Treyarch Studios and Infinity Ward had cycled between development year after year.
With three different developer studios taking charge of multiple COD series, Call of Duty titles can feel drastically different each year. Although this allows for a different gameplay experience each year, it does split the community, with many players often pitting the popular Black Ops and Modern Warfare series against each other.
It seems as though the two could be about to get a lot closer though, as an insider claims the narrative of the two huge series could be about to align.
Insider States Modern Warfare and Black Ops Narratives Could Align In The Future
An exclusive report by reputable Call of Duty insider, TheGhostOfHope, states that Infinity Ward and Treyarch Studios have begun working together in order to align the narratives of the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series.
Although further details weren’t specified by Hope, such as when we can expect this to happen, fans likely shouldn’t expect it anytime soon. with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II set to release this October, a new Warzone experience will also be launching at some point this year.
It’s possible that the decision to align the narratives of both Modern Warfare and Black Ops is to aid the progression of Warzone. In the past, Warzone launched shortly after the release of the 2019 reboot, Modern Warfare. Each year after, the latest Call of Duty title was integrated into Warzone, often making for a slightly chaotic experience, both in gameplay and narrative.
Back in February, Infinity Ward’s Pat Kelly went on record saying that when “Black Ops Cold War was added to Warzone, Warzone didn’t feel like Modern Warfare anymore, but also didn’t feel like Black Ops either”. Kelly then went on to state that Infinity Ward would be working to make this less of an issue in the future.
If the stories of both Modern Warfare and Black Ops become more aligned, it could make for an easier transition into Warzone each year.
