There’s going to be, wait on it, a brand-new Call of Duty video game this year at some point in Q4 2020. Activision Blizzard announced the news on their latest call with financiers, however in a break from custom, the publisher did not reveal a developer for this year’s Call of DUTY.
“The franchise has actually never ever been much better placed for growth and there’s more to come, including totally brand-new experiences within the Modern Warfare universe and after that naturally, in Q4 this year, a brand-new premium Call of DUTY release which is currently creating enjoyment in our playtests,” said Activision COO Coddy Johnson.
Activision Blizzard didn’t reveal which of its 3 Call of Duty studios will be establishing this year’s brand-new Call of Duty game. The publisher generally rotates between Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer Games to develop each new year’s Call of Duty game. With Treyarch having actually established 2018’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Infinity Ward having actually completed last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the cycle would presumably have gone to Sledgehammer.

Activision likewise provided its yearly prediction that the next Call of Duty might not offer as excellent as the last, however this has always been more of a preventative measure than the truth. And even if Call of Responsibility 2020 doesn’t outsell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the series is frequently the best-selling games of the year.
This year’s Call of Duty doesn’t have a subtitle or setting announced yet, however the exact same report recommends that it will be Black Ops 5 set at some point in the Cold War.
There will supposedly be a single-player project mode after the function was missing in Black Ops 4.
