Hey there, gamers! We have some exciting news regarding the upcoming Call of Duty game: it will be a continuation of the beloved Modern Warfare subseries! As you may know, Call of Duty games are released annually in autumn and are usually developed by different teams with their own storylines. This year is no exception!
Over the years, Call of Duty has been developed by several teams including Treyarch, Sledgehammer Games and Infinity Ward. However, it was Infinity Ward who created the Modern Warfare subseries which kicked off with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – a huge hit that brought the series into modern day.
Last year’s Call of Duty game was part of the Modern Warfare subseries, leading many fans to assume this year’s entry would follow along with Black Ops or be an exclusive title from Sledgehammer Games. However, according to anonymous sources close to development, this entry will actually be a follow-up to last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
This news follows reports that the 2023 Call of Duty game would be delayed and Sledgehammer Games would fill in with a compressed schedule. While this caused some concern among employees, the game has since evolved into a full experience featuring both single-player and multiplayer components.
Activision seems to be prioritizing what sells the best, especially given Call of Duty: Vanguard’s disappointing performance last year. This could mean less experimental one-off titles but also that current games will receive longer term support. And with Modern Warfare 2 still selling well, fans have plenty of exciting Call of Duty content to look forward to in the future – get those trigger fingers ready!
