Call of Duty Black Ops 6 Will Not Show 9/11

It's a fictional story, says Treyarch.

The next Call of Duty, Black Ops 6, also known as CoD: Gulf War, is finally out in the open, and this means a lot of speculation is circulating around its trailers and announcements. 

Despite rumors about Black Ops 6 depicting the events of 9/11, a terrorist attack in the US in 2001, this won't happen, Treyarch confirmed.

Yes, the Gulf War happened a decade before 9/11, but it didn't stop some fans from believing this rumor after one live-action trailer focusing on important political leaders of the 1990s, like George Bush, Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, and Saddam Hussein. 

However, the developer is firm: this is a fictional story, and the 9/11 rumor is just that.

"Black Ops 6, like every other Black Ops game, is purely fictional," associate design director Matt Scronce said (via PC Gamer.)

"In true Black Ops fashion, it's not what's happening up here – 'the stock market's going crazy and everything's great' –because we actually know, not everything's great. And it's about Black Ops and the team, what's happening underground and behind the scenes and the stuff that nobody's really talking about. But always, it's purely a fictional story."

Even though the Gulf War itself is a prominent part of the game, Black Ops 6 will show you more, not all of it based on reality, including a conflict on US soil and events in Avalon, "which is a made-city. There's lots of different places where you go."

All of these stories need space, but not the 300 GB players were afraid of after noticing the Xbox store page of the game, which stated it was a 309.85 GB download. It was then explained that this enormous size includes "the full installations of Modern Warfare II, Modern Warfare III, Warzone, and all relevant content packs."

You can now breathe a little easier, although it's not clear how much space you'll really need yet.
