Regardless of reviews on the contrary, Activision is shifting forward with the standard plan to launch a premium, “full” Name of Obligation sport this yr. Though the writer revealed virtually zero details about the sport, it did affirm that it is occurring.
As a part of Avtivision’s Q1 2023 monetary outcomes, the writer stated to anticipate the sport “later this yr,” alongside Warzone Cell.
Some consider it did.
Though we used to be taught in regards to the yearly Name of Obligation releases by now and even earlier within the yr, current iterations had been as a substitute revealed a lot deeper into their respective launch years. If this pattern continues, do not anticipate to listen to something in regards to the upcoming sport till later in the summertime.
This may be why Activision has but to even announce who’s main improvement on the undertaking. Because the introduction of the three-year/three-studio cycle, it was fairly straightforward to name which studio can be making the yr’s sport. However that cycle has been damaged, and the totally different main studios are likely to contribute to each Name of Obligation extra lately due to unified tech.
For months, reviews have indicated that Activision could also be about to interrupt its yearly launch cycle for Name of Obligation, however there was no consensus on what the writer plans to fit into that schedule as a substitute.
There was all the time the opportunity of some type of premium content material, however till Activision outright confirms what that’s, we will not say for positive. Reportedly, Sledgehammer Video games is engaged on an enlargement to Fashionable Warfare 2, nevertheless it’s not clear how a lot content material we will anticipate.
Whichever studio finally ends up main cost on the following sport, it would doubtless tie considerably into Warzone 2.0, just like what occurred with the unique Warzone. If the sport is certainly within the Fashionable Warfare universe, this transition would a minimum of make sense in each thematic and gameplay phrases.
