James C. Burns might not return to voice Frank Woods in Black Ops 6

YouTuber @TheGamingRevolution recently took to X and made an interesting prediction based on leaked voice lines for Woods from Modern Warfare 3's latest Season 4 update. The audio file was initially leaked by a reliable insider known as @Earthbound_Fan.

After going through various dialogues for Woods, @TheGamingRevolution wrote in his post that the character might be voiced by Damon Victor Allen once again. The latter also contributed to Woods' voice back in 2020's Black Ops Cold War. The YouTuber then wrote that fan-favorite James C. Burns will likely not make a comeback as the the voice actor for Frank Woods in Black Ops 6.

For those unaware, James C. Burns had expressed disappointment in the past after he was not chosen to reprise Woods' role in Black Ops Cold War. He wanted to give his best performance for the beloved character but couldn't understand why he wasn't considered for a return. Mr. Burns has been the voice for Woods in the first Black Ops game, Black Ops 2, and also Black Ops 4.
