The synopsis also disclosed the fact that The Eternals will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which itself took place in the year 2024 in the MCU's timeline.
Further, Marvel also shared why the Eternals had to finally come out of hiding. The synopsis stated that an unexpected tragedy will force them out of the shadows to reunite against mankind's most ancient enemy, The Deviants.

For those unaware about the history behind The Eternals, they are an ancient race of powerful beings who were brought into existence by the cosmic entities, the Celestials. The Deviants, similar to the Eternals, were also created by the power of the Celestials.
