Activision Confirms Sequels To Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare And Warzone Coming In 2022
Current Warzone game will get 30 improvements when next season drops.
Today's announcement by Activision doesn't use the words "Call of Duty: Warzone 2," which is what we thought we'd be hearing about soon. That said, a "new [Call of Duty] game and a new Warzone experience [that] are designed together from the ground-up" pretty much qualifies, doesn't it?
That's what Activision announced in a letter today that described not only the future of the Call of Duty franchise but what it has in store for its current games. To that end, there are over 30 quality-of-life improvements slated for Warzone's Season Two launch, including better vehicle handling and other movement improvements, addressing performance hitches, and correcting invisible skins.
FOV sliders for console players is another one of the game's "top requests," but they won't be implemented because of the performance issues they cause on older consoles.
Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
As to the future of the franchise: 2022 will see another Call of Duty game (surprise!), which will be a sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare. As previously mentioned, that will be accompanied by a "new Warzone experience," which comprises "a massive evolution of Battle Royale with all-new playspace and a new sandbox mode," all while using a new engine.
The development of the game will be headed up by Infinity Ward; there's no mention as to whether Raven Software will play a part in the development, as it has for the last several iterations of the series. That could just be Activision switching out development houses for Call of Duty, which it does with some regularity, though you'd have to wonder if the labor strife at the developer played a part in the decision.
