After many, many rumors, we have finally confirmed that Infinity Ward will be working on a sequel relaunch of the 2019 Modern Warfare sub-series. Arriving on October 28, we saw the game for the first time as part of E3, including the expanded gameplay of the campaign.
A brand new version of Call of Duty: Warzone was announced earlier this year. It will be developed by Infinity Ward and will include “a completely new game space and a new sandbox mode.” It will also be developed on a new engine developed for Modern Warfare 2.
This may also be the last annual Call of Duty game, as it has been reported that the 2023 Call of Duty game will be released in 2024 and that the series may no longer be an annual franchise following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. However, reports also suggest that Activision Blizzard is committed to keeping the next three Call of Duty games multiplatform.
