Operation Flashback is still going to be a traditional Warzone experience, but there's going to be a lot more going on in each game and you might find it an easier experience to triumph in. Sticking around for a Jailbreak isn't the worst idea, either. You can check out the full details here.

When does the Operation Flashback LTM come out?

At the moment, we're still waiting for the details of Warzone's new Operation Flashback LTM - Call of Duty has been unusually quiet about it all considering it's due to be released in a couple of hours.


We know the basic premise of the Operation Flashback LTM, but we haven't had specific details about what to expect or how it's all going to work - we can only assume that it will boil down to the basic premise of Warzone's gameplay: be the last one standing.

The Operation Flashback LTM is due to be added to Warzone in today's Playlist Update, which is at the following times:

  • 10:00 November 18th PST
  • 13:00 November 18th EST
  • 18:00 November 18th GMT

We should see something before this update, but there's no telling what. Keep an eye on Call of Duty's social media channels.

OPERATION FLASHBACK - What we know so far

At the moment, we don't know a lot about how Operation Flashback will work. We know that it's aiming to be a celebration of Warzone as a whole before we say goodbye to Verdansk for the final time, but Call of Duty hasn't expanded on many details yet.

In their announcement of the Operation Flashback LTM, they have said the following:

" To celebrate – and bring back –these classic moments and many more, lead developer Raven Software created a special “Operation: Flashback” limited-time mode, featuring plenty of surprises that cover Verdansk’s action-packed history."

READY FOR A CHANGE? - The Pacific is nice this time of year

In addition to this, the phrase "what public events you can expect to happen at the start of every new circle" is being used. This is leading us to believe that we're going to see a new in-game event every time the circle closes. This could be absolutely amazing if it's done correctly. We should learn more in the next few days...
