Further tweets encouraged fans to join for a special Black Ops 6 Direct live stream that’ll take place after the Xbox Games Showcase on Sunday 9 June. That will happen at 8pm UK time, in what would’ve been the traditional E3 (RIP in peace, you’re with the angels now) timeslot.

There we’re sure to get further details about the plot. Recent rumours have suggested the game will be set during the Gulf War.

The materials published alongside the release suggest the Black Ops in question will centre on the cover-up of the covert acts to hide an inconvenient truth for the a US government.

We’ll also hear about this year’s game modes and gameplay during the showcase. However, in the meantime there’s still plenty to enjoy and build the excitement.

A “wake up (rushmore)” teaser trailer for the game has been published to YouTube (above) with the hashtag #thetruthlies. That tagline appears key to the plot of the game right now.

A video published to X to tie-in with the trailer shows a “fresh of the press” copy of the New York Post proclaiming an American Cover Up, as “Rushmore defaced in an unprecedented act!”
