Modern Warfare 3 was more like a DLC to the previous title, so the skins transferring over to the next game felt natural. However, Black Ops 6 is a separate mainline entry, so the devs may have decided not to allow the transfer. Some players are quite upset with this decision, especially the avid skin collectors. However, many others are happy they will not have to witness Homelander and Nicki Minaj running around during the Gulf War.

Black Ops 6 Has Been In Development For 4 Years

Many players have been waiting for a classic Call of Duty experience, and Black Ops 6 is arguably shaping up to be just that. The title was in the brewer for 4 years, and new info revealed that most of that time was spent on getting Treyarch devs cozy with the Unified engine.
