Call Of Duty Title From Sledgehammer Coming Q4, With “Innovation” To Warzone

Activi­sion Bliz­zard is cur­rent­ly wrapped up in a law­suit over its cor­po­rate cul­ture and sex­u­al mis­con­duct alle­ga­tions; yet, the com­pa­ny is still push­ing for­ward with new game releas­es. One of these is a big one: the next Call of Duty game from Sledge­ham­mer Games. As part of Activi­sion Bliz­zard’s earn­ings report on Tues­day, man­age­ment con­firmed this game is arriv­ing in the fourth quarter.

Our teams remain hard at work on the next new pre­mi­um Call of Duty release, planned for the fourth quar­ter,” Activi­sion said. “From a set­ting that our fans know and love, to an incred­i­ble amount of con­tent in devel­op­ment includ­ing an exten­sive live ops sched­ule, we believe this release will be incred­i­bly well-received. In addi­tion to launch­ing a great seam­less expe­ri­ence for both cur­rent and next-gen con­sole play­ers, we are focused on con­tin­u­ing to inte­grate War­zone and engage our direct rela­tion­ship with our play­er base for even deep­er con­tent inte­gra­tion between the pre­mi­um and free expe­ri­ences and sub­stan­tial inno­va­tion with­in War­zone itself. Our teams can­not wait to unveil what they have been work­ing on.”

Lat­er on in the pre­sen­ta­tion, the stu­dio stat­ed that it has “nev­er been big­ger or stronger” and con­firmed this year’s Call of Duty release would include a cam­paign, co-op, and multiplayer.

Sledge­ham­mer devel­oped 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII, and has con­tributed to the ongo­ing devel­op­ment of Call of Duty: War­zone. The stu­dio’s new entry is said to be anoth­er WWII-themed title, which will also inte­grate with War­zone. It’s pos­si­ble the game could even be par­tial­ly revealed in the bat­tle royale.

Sledge­ham­mer was con­firmed as the the devel­op­er for 2021’s Call of Duty game back in May, and at that time, man­age­ment said the game was “built for next-gen.” Giv­en the scarci­ty of the next-gen con­soles, it’s unlike­ly they will be exclu­sive to them, but will def­i­nite­ly be catered more towards those users.
