Activision has taken the plunge to offer one new episode of Call of Duty per year: the publisher has thus turned to 3 different studios to allocate them the direction of the spinoff franchise.
This year, gamers will be able to enjoy Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, but there’s obviously no question of rushing things too much… The bitter failure of Call of Duty Vanguard has scalded Activision, which wants to revise its strategy and create the lack while giving itself time to better reflect on its projects and the evolution of the market.
So there was to be no release of any major Call of Duty installment in 2023 according to information reported by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier. In fact, Treyarch would have been in charge of the 2023 Call of Duty, except that the studio has since been redirected to another free-to-play project.
However, it’s hard to see Activision leaving players and its franchise without any content, so we’ll have to expect to see DLC and premium content coming.
It’s not yet clear what form this “premium” content will take, but Activision is talking about launching a new era for Call of Duty by the end of the year…
