This year’s Call of Duty hasn’t even been officially revealed yet, but already we’ve hearing the first snippets of info about Call of Duty 2022, which will reportedly see Infinity Ward developing the game’s single-player campaign.
According to a series of job listings posted by Infinity Ward, the company is looking to fill a number of job roles including a single-player gameplay designer, a level designer with experience in single-player and cooperative content, and a senior artificial intelligence engineer.
Infinity Ward’s previous game was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which launched in 2019 as a reboot of the hugely successful Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Treyarch took the series reins for last year’s Call of Duty: Black OPs – Cold War, while Call of Duty: Vanguard, the rumoured title for 2021’s game, is being handled by Sledgehammer Games.
Call of Duty 2021 is supposedly going to be set in World War II, or an alternate version of the conflict that extended into the 1950s. We’ll have to wait until Activision lifts the wraps off the game to get the full skinny on this year’s entry, though.
Recently, Glen Schofield, who co-directed multiple Call of Duty games at Sledgehammer, emphatically stated that people do not realise just how much work goes into creating a new entry in the franchise. Schofield himself spent many years studying World War II, and travelled to Europe to extensively research the setting.
