Warzone 2 Is Planned for 2023 and Will Launch on Playstation According to Bloomberg

Today, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported that Activision plans to launch Warzone 2 in 2023, and it is also coming to PlayStation.

Microsoft recently acquired Activision for a massive $68.7 billion. This transaction immediately became the biggest acquisition in the history of gaming.

The acquisition generated a lot of questions and uncertainty. Namely, one of the most prominent questions is what would happen to the Call of Duty franchise once the merger is complete.

This question is entirely valid, mainly because after Microsoft acquired Bethesda, IPs like Starfield became Xbox console exclusives.

Now, Bloomberg has shed more light on this matter. Their coverage revealed details about an upcoming Warzone 2 and the future of the Call of Duty franchise on PlayStation.

Bloomberg Unveils Details About Call of Duty on PlayStation and Warzone 2

Today, Bloomberg undoubtedly dropped an immense amount of exciting information for Call of Duty fans.

Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported Warzone 2 is already planned and in development for a 2023 release on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

In addition, Schreier also mentioned that even after Microsoft’s acquisition, Activision “had committed to make the next few Call of Duy games” available on PlayStation.

According to this news, Activision has three more Call of Duty titles coming to Sony’s PlayStation.

These three titles include the next iteration of Warzone. Currently, this report does not add any further information on Warzone 2.

Although, we can expect this version of the game to take full advantage of current-gen hardware finally.

The article mentions how Phil Spencer promised to uphold these contracts with Sony. Thus, assuring everyone the Call of Duty franchise will remain multiplatform.

Although, things beyond 2023 are a bit hazy. Microsoft previously promised to keep Bethesda’s deals with Sony, but franchises announced later as Starfield became Xbox console exclusives.

Also, the article circles back to a previous Bloomberg report that suggests yearly Call of Duty releases might stop.

For the time being, CoD will remain on PlayStation platforms. At this moment, this franchise is one of the best-selling games on PS4 and PS5.

Even with this statement, it is unclear what Microsoft will do after 2023 when Sony’s deal with Activision is fulfilled.
