“In 2043, the Eclipse Empire encountered an enemy they thought they could defeat. Their confidence in the Eclipse Military's might being impenetrable was high; they thought they were all powerful. But they were wrong, and now that enemy has returned for retribution.”
―Reveal Trailer

Call of Duty: Retribution is an FPS action Call of Duty video game developed by Nakamura Interactive, Frost Games and Tachibana Games, and published by Morningwood Arts for the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and the Steam client. Call of Duty: Retribution was developed using Semblance 6.0. Anakin Nakamura serves as the game's design director while Eclipse Universe creator Jesse Loon serves as the narrative director, overseeing the narrative within all the game's modes, and collaborating with Anakin on post-launch story content.

It is the third and final game of the spin-off Rose Squad Trilogy in the Eclipse Warfare series and is ultimately the last game where players will be able to play as Rose Squad. Its also the sequel to Call of Duty: Age of Extinction, though not a direct sequel. The game takes place during the Second Korman Conflict between the Korma Empire and Eclipse Military in the Original Rose Squad Timeline.

Revealed at E3 2028, Design Director Anakin Nakamura confirmed that the game will feature a Campaign Mode, and that Arc Squad will not be playable characters but rather appear as supporting characters in the Campaign. The reasons for this is because Nakamura Interactive wanted to focus and double-down on the finale for Rose Squad, the central protagonists of the Rose Squad Trilogy.

Like Call of Duty: Age of Extinction, the game's setting was introduced by Call of Duty: Retribution - Return, a promotional mini-movie created by Nakamura Interactive, and Season Four: Retribution in Call of Duty: Extinction.

Campaign

The Campaign for Call of Duty: Retribution is set in 2046, three years after the events of Call of Duty: Extinction. The story is focused around the Second Korman Conflict, and the Eclipse Empire's contingency plans to defend against the Korma Empire's military might and their surprise invasions across the galaxy.

As confirmed by design director Anakin Nakamura, the Campaign will only feature Rose Squad as playable characters. Arc Squad appear as supporting characters and as NPCs.

Extinction

Developed by Nakamura Interactive, the Extinction mode is confirmed to be the "endgame" for the Campaign Mode, continuing the story of Rose Squad through several Missions as well as featuring them in some Grimm Survival and Grimm of Chaos maps.

The story of the Extinction mode takes place after the events in the Campaign Mode and will contain references and carry over elements from it. Extinction Missions will be locked until the player finishes the Campaign Mode, however they'll still be able to access Grimm Survival, Grimm of Chao and Legacy Missions.

Legacy Missions

Main article: Legacy

Included with the game are Legacy Missions. These maps are set within the original timeline of the Extinction mode that was introduced in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The main antagonists are the Cryptids.

Design Director Anakin Nakamura confirmed both upcoming Expansions will introduce new Legacy Missions, featuring a different cast of characters and setting. At launch, there will two Legacy Missions available; the first focusing on CIF Team Four and the second focusing on American citizens.

Available Legacy Missions include:

Special Operations

Developed by Tachibana Games, the Special Operations mode introduces players to a new TITAN-X fireteam designated Ghost, led by Senior Commander Jenkins Gerald Newton. Tachibana Games had improved upon the original Special Ops mode by introducing new gameplay mechanics as well as a new mode called Assault Missions which is a new co-op experience that plays similarly to Campaign missions.

Assault Missions

At launch, there will be five Assault Missions available for players to experience, each taking place after one another. Each new Content Update will contain either two or three Assault Missions that will focus around that Content Update's story and theme.

Expansions will introduce new Campaign Storylines, Extinction Missions and Legacy Missions, and may also include Specialized Weapon Variants.

Expansions are paid DLC and are confirmed to contain new Campaign Storylines, with new characters and already existing characters, Missions for Extinction and Legacy.
