Here's everything we know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 coming to Game Pass according to reports and a notfication from Xbox Game Pass.

New Call of Duty game on Game Pass: Makarov from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Is Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 coming to Game Pass? Set in the Gulf War, the next CoD is a new entry in the Black Ops sub series, and comes after the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 in 2023. After completing its purchase of CoD, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch owner Activision Blizzard, Microsoft has already brought Diablo 4 over to Game Pass. Now it’s being claimed that Call of Duty could follow.

With CoD Black Ops 6 taking place in the Gulf War, this game is already a Call of Duty first, and a much-needed change from the War on Terror and sci-fi futuristic settings that have largely dominated the series for the past ten years. The war game coming to Game Pass would mark another first for the series, so here’s what we know about the next installment in the beloved FPS game series.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Game Pass

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is coming to Game Pass on day one, marking a new era for the game following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The news was confirmed in a blog post in May 28, shortly before the announcement of the Black Ops 6 release date. Since the Microsoft acquisition wasn’t complete until October 2023, this is the first Call of Duty game to be affected by the takeover.

Given that Call of Duty games usually have a PS-exclusive beta and other rewards, it remains to be seen what else this acquisition means for CoD on other platforms. No doubt more is going to be revealed during CoD NEXT on August 28, 2024.
