Activision’s historic decision to delay the Call of Duty 2023 title means that this year’s Modern Warfare 2 will be the main focus for the publisher.
Activision has been on a tear as of late, with the publisher shutting down multiple cheat providers, and releasing the Pacific updates for Warzone, all in a matter of a few months.
And if you’re a fan of the Call of Duty franchise, it only gets better. Activision has also announced Modern Warfare 2, along with Warzone 2, set to release this year.
However, according to the latest report, we will not see any Call of Duty title next year, with Modern Warfare 2 being the center of attention for the next two years.
Modern Warfare 2 (2022) Set To Receive Additional Content and Support for Two Years
According to a Bloomberg report, Activision has delayed the launch of Call of Duty 2023. While the Treyarch-led title is now set to launch in 2024, Modern Warfare 2, releasing this fall, will receive plenty of exciting new content.
Activision has continued to release a CoD title for the past 18 years, and the decision to change things up is massive.
However, the fans are lauding this bold move, as seen in a Twitter poll. Over 90% of the people who voted are happy with Activision supporting Modern Warfare 2 for two years, in an attempt to fill the gap year.
The report also points towards a new free-to-play game, scheduled to release next year. As of right now, there are no hints of what this project is, but it is different from Warzone 2’s release and updates.
Many in the community are speculating that Microsoft helped Activision come to this decision. Although, this may have been fueled by Vanguard, last year’s Call of Duty title, performing very poorly.
Moreover, the fans think this is brilliant as it takes the stress off of Treyarch, which will help them deliver a polished game in 2024. Additionally, it will also help reduce the number of bugs, along with regular balance updates.
However, there are concerned fans on the opposite end of the spectrum as well. If the players don’t like MWII, it might be catastrophic for the CoD franchise.
In other news, Activision is planning to bring King Kong and Godzilla events to Call of Duty: Warzone. On top of this, global sensation Snoop Dogg is also making their way into Warzone sometime in the future.
Also, according to a report, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in a Call of Duty movie.
Finally, a leak is suggesting that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 might have a subscription service.
