Activision has responded to reports that the Call of Duty franchise will not release a new entry in 2023, marking the first time in 20 years that there won’t be a new Call of Duty game launching annually.
Speaking with Eurogamer, a representative for the publishing behemoth said that there are ‘Call of Duty experiences’ slated for this year and next year, but wouldn’t actually go into any further details. Reading between the lines, this could still mean it won’t be a premium game in 2023, but something else.
We have an exciting slate of premium and free-to-play Call of Duty experiences for this year, next year and beyond. Reports of anything otherwise are incorrect. We look forward to sharing more details when the time is right.
Activision confirmed earlier this year that the 2022’s Call of Duty game will be a sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), and that there is also a new Call of Duty Warzone experience currently in the pipeline.
Microsoft made headlines a few weeks back when it announced plans to acquire Activision Blizzard for a massive $68.7 billion.
