According to a report by Tom Henderson published on the pages of Exputer, the guys from Sledgehammer Games have started work on a new Call of Duty which, barring unforeseen events, should be released in 2025 .
Based on his internal sources, Henderson states in the article that the game has entered pre-production. He has not received details on the nature of the title, but one of the developers says that the deadline set by Activision Blizzard is set at 2025. As proof of this, Henderson notes that the staff of Sledgehammer Games has grown by 21% since last year. with over 60 open job positions for studios located in Australia, Canada and the USA, a sign that the studio has probably started work on a new project.
This would seem to lend credence to the indiscretion launched by Bloomberg in February that Treyarch’s next Call of Duty has been internally postponed , with a release date postponed from 2023 to 2024. Henderson’s source also states that 2023 will be a “gap year” for the main series, but which from 2024 should resume release annually .
That said, a number of premium and non-Call of Duty games should arrive between 2022 and 2023. In addition to Modern Warfare 2, of which the reveal could be very close , there are also Warzone 2, Warzone Mobile and, according to a previous rumor, also a free-to-play spin-off entirely focused on the Zombie mode .
