Activision confirmed during its 2021 report that the publishing giant has over 3,000 over its employees working on the Call of Duty franchise alone.
The news comes following news that the latest entry in the multi-million selling franchise, Call of Duty: Vanguard, underperformed for Activision — something which it partly blamed on the World War II setting. However, it’s clear from the publisher’s comments that it’s putting a ton of resources into the future of the franchise.
We are working on the most ambitious plan in Call of Duty history, with over 3000 people now working on the franchise and a return to the Modern Warfare setting that delivered our most successful Call of Duty title ever.
As of December 31, 2021, Activision Blizzard had approximately 9800 full-time and part-time employees, with approximately 68 percent in North America, approximately 25 percent in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (‘EMEA’) region, and approximately seven percent in the Asia Pacific region.
Looking ahead, this year’s instalment in the series has bee confirmed to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot.
