For the first time in nearly 20 years, Call of Duty will not see a yearly release. According to VGC and sources close to Activision Blizzard, Treyarch’s Call of Duty game slated for 2023 has been delayed to 2024. Vanguard failed to meet expectations and executives believe they’re “introducing new versions too rapidly”. As a result, the new game will instead release in 2024. This hopefully gives developers more breathing room to work on the game and enjoy some more time off when possible. Additionally, the extra year could be extremely beneficial to overall game quality since it won’t be rushed out in 2023.
Activision Blizzard is working on other projects for 2023. In the meantime, Infinity Ward is set to release a Modern Warfare (2019) sequel and new Warzone experience this year. More content such as free updates and DLC are planned for the Modern Warfare sequel. Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard could result in pushes to create more diverse content from the vast library of IPs. Hopefully, fans see IPs such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Spyro return for new games and remasters alike. Microsoft is set to push Activision Blizzard games for Switch and more details are found here. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest gaming news and updates!
