Call of Duty 2021 is officially coming from developer Sledgehammer Games, and Activision is already teasing next-gen features.
The words many fans have been waiting for are here, as Activision confirms that Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty 2021. In a new earnings call, the publisher reveals that this year will, in fact, have a main title release.
Recently, we’ve been hearing that Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard is a disaster in development. However, whether or not these rumors are true, Activision is certain the game will release this year.
After all, the publisher is currently putting all of its teams on Call of Duty development, which is some considerable manpower.
UPDATE: Activision confirms it’s hiring 2000 more developers in 2021 and tripling the Call of Duty development team size!
In case you missed it, rumors indicate that Call of Duty 2021 will run on this popular engine!
But if Call of Duty’s new mainline title isn’t enough, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Multiplayer is also leaking for 2021!
Call of Duty 2021 Is “Built for Next Gen”
Call of Duty 2021 is finally officially announced to be coming, complete with a “built for next-gen” experience.
In its latest earnings call for Q1 2021, Activision confirms that Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty 2021. The developer is known for its past work on Advanced Warfare and WW2.
Now, rumors suggest that the title will be the heavily-leaked Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard. And it looks like Activision is going all-out on making sure its new game will be ready to bring in the usual tremendous sales.
Activision says Call of Duty 2021 “will integrate with and enhance the Call of Duty ecosystem.”
It will also include a Campaign, Multiplayer, and Co-op experience.
In its investor call, the company confirms that development on Sledgehammer Games’ title is “looking great”. The game is also reportedly “built for next-gen,” but this doesn’t mean that an Xbox One and PS4 version isn’t coming too.
More Call of Duty 2021 Details
Activision’s comments certainly indicate that we’ll be seeing some Call of Duty 2021 content inside Warzone. After all, the company is seeing tremendous financial success after the Black Ops Cold War integration, with two of the battle royale’s biggest seasons to date.
Call of Duty 2021 is on track for a Fall 2021 release. More information will be coming in the months ahead, and you can bet on a teaser inside Warzone like the Know Your History event before long.
Right now, Warzone cheating is worse than ever in the Season 3 update. We hope that the battle royale will get things running smoothly by the time of the 2021 integration.
Especially since Activision is promising to invest more resources in anti-cheat already.
Meanwhile, there’s a new no-SBMM mode in Warzone right now that’s very popular with fans!
