The Spec Ops video game franchise is a series of third-person shooter video games developed by various studios and published by 2K Games. The franchise began in 1998 with the release of “Spec Ops: Rangers Lead the Way” for PC, which was based on the United States Army Rangers.
The series gained popularity with the release of “Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol” in 2000 for PlayStation, which introduced more tactical elements to the gameplay. The series continued with “Spec Ops: Covert Assault” and “Spec Ops: Airborne Commando,” both released for PlayStation in 2001.
In 2012, a reboot of the franchise titled “Spec Ops: The Line” was released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is set in Dubai and follows a Delta Force team as they search for survivors in the city following a catastrophic sandstorm. The game received critical acclaim for its storyline and moral choices, but was also controversial for its depiction of violence and war.
Overall, the Spec Ops franchise has been praised for its realism, graphics, and tactical gameplay. While the franchise has not seen any new releases since the 2012 reboot, it remains a popular series among fans of military-themed video games.
