It doesn’t have a release date yet, but Activision has said that a new Call Of Duty will definitely be out this year by the makers of WW2.
Given the pandemic, and how well Warzone is doing on its own, there was some question as to whether there would be a new Call Of Duty this year, but now Activision has confirmed there definitely will be.
The announcement was only made during a call to investors, so there were no real details beyond the fact that Sledgehammer Games will be the lead developer.
Sledgehammer has worked on most of the modern Call Of Duties but led development on Advanced Warfare and WW2, with the new game rumoured to be another Second World War title called Vanguard.
Activision didn’t say anything about the setting, but they did emphasise that the game was built for the next/current generation console, so while there will almost certainly be last gen versions they are no longer the focus.
The only other detail is that the game will feature campaign, multiplayer, and co-operative modes – the standard for the series, but one which has seen some deviation in recent years, especially when Black Ops 4 didn’t have a campaign mode.
Activision also spoke of plans to hire up to 2,000 more developers over the next two years, with some teams set to triple in size as a result.
The franchises they’d be working on were not mentioned but it’s assumed the majority would be put to work on Call Of Duty, especially after even Crash Bandicoot 4 developer Toys for Bob was brought in to work on the series.
