News has gradually surfaced about the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 across the past month or so, but owners of last-generation consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One will be eagerly trying to find out whether or not they will be able to play the franchise’s latest blockbuster when it is released on 25th October 2024.


Black Ops 6 is going to be set in the 1990s during a period of "transition and upheaval in global politics".

The US takes centre stage as a lone superpower, but the government has been infiltrated by a shadowy organisation, leaving us to go rogue.

The game is shaping up to be a fine entry in the Black Ops saga. Read on to find out which platforms will run the game once it lands later this year.
