What to Expect

Call of Duty NEXT 2024 is confirmed to reveal a new look at Black Ops 6 Multiplayer gameplay, acting as the Worldwide Multiplayer Reveal for Treyarch’s upcoming game.

Last year’s stream was around four hours long and featured an extensive look at content creators playing MW3 Multiplayer across several matches.

What’s more, while currently unconfirmed by Activision, we anticipate that fans will get a look at the new changes coming to Warzone. This has always been the case in past COD NEXT livestreams.

The Battle Royale is very likely to get a new map in late 2024, and rumor has it that Verdansk will finally be returning.

The map’s remake was shown off during the MW3 2023 Campaign, and its return has been one of the most common fan requests for some time now.

Activision is also likely to offer viewers in-game rewards for tuning into the event, via Twitch and YouTube drops. Users will need to ensure that their Activision accounts are linked in order to claim the free content.

Shortly after the conclusion of COD NEXT, it is expected that the Black Ops 6 Beta will go live in early access.

Therefore, we won’t be waiting long to go hands-on with the game, after watching our favorite creators checking it out at the event.
