Activision has officially announced that Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty 2021, which will be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
During the call to the company’s fourth quarter investors, Activision executives confirmed that a new Call of Duty will be out later this year.
The details on the setting are lurking: for that and other information on the next title of the Call of Duty franchise, we will have to wait a little longer.
The big news of the meeting a few hours ago is that Activision has confirmed that Sledgehammer Games is developing the 2021 title. This is the real confirmation, never arrived until now but hypothesized by various insiders in recent days.
The game is under construction for next-gen consoles and PCs, Activision executives said, though it’s unclear if this particular detail refers to the game not releasing on PS4 and Xbox One. The executives have also stated that the title will also be officially integrated with Call of Duty: Warzone, and that it will aim to improve the ecosystem of the franchise.
In particular, we are very excited about this year’s Call of Duty premium release. Development is led by Sledgehammer Games and the game looks great and well on its way to its fall release. It’s an experience built for the next generation with stunning visuals in campaign, multiplayer and co-op game modes, designed to complement and enhance the existing COD ecosystem. We can’t wait to share more details with the community soon.
The announcement was then accompanied by a tweet from Sledgehammer Games, which however does not offer particular ideas for the game.
According to rumors, the title of the new shooter in the series could be Call of Duty: Vanguard, and it could be set between the Second World War and the 1950s.
Sledgehammer Games will be the third installment of the solo-developed franchise, following Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 2014 and Call of Duty: WWII in 2017.
