Next year’s Call Of Duty is being made by Infinity Ward, the studio behind 2019’s smash hit Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, a spiritual successor and sort-of reboot of Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
A new report from a prominent Call Of Duty insider confirms what almost everyone who follows these things knows already: The next game in the franchise will be Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II, a direct sequel to 2019’s game.
On Saturday, Tom Henderson—who has reported on numerous valid Call Of Duty leaks and rumors—tweeted this:
Activision has three primary developers working on each year’s Call Of Duty series, as well as Raven Software working on free-to-play battle royale tie-in, Warzone.
Infinity Ward handled 2019’s game, Treyarch led 2020’s Black Ops Cold War, and this year’s title is Call Of Duty: Vanguard from Sledgehammer Games.
Given the success of 2019’s Modern Warfare, there was almost no chance that 2022’s Call Of Duty would be anything other than a Modern Warfare sequel.
If Henderson is wrong here I will eat my hat. Whether or not the artwork is as good as he says remains to be seen.
Call Of Duty: Vanguard releases on November 5th, 2021. I will be reviewing.
