Report Claims Call Of Duty 2023 Will Be Delayed Until 2024

It looks like 2023’s Call of Duty game might be delayed until the fol­low­ing year in 2024. This would be the first time since 2004 that a year would go by with­out a new main­line Call of Duty title. A new entry has been added on an annu­al basis since 2005’s Call of Duty 2.

As report­ed by Bloomberg, Activi­sion Bliz­zard is delay­ing 2023’s Call of Duty in hopes to fur­ther pol­ish the game before its launch. Microsoft plans to con­tin­ue devel­op­ing Activi­sion fran­chis­es for com­pet­ing con­sole plat­forms, like­ly mean­ing we’ll be see­ing this new Call of Duty launch for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC. If Microsoft­’s acqui­si­tion of Activi­sion Bliz­zard goes through, the Call of Duty series could even be head­ing to Nin­ten­do Switch.

The Bloomberg report also says Activi­sion Bliz­zard is push­ing this Call of Duty’s release far­ther out because of the recent game fail­ing to meet expec­ta­tions. No exact game was list­ed, but both Van­guard and War­zone under­per­formed in 2021 in com­par­i­son to Black Ops Cold War and War­zone in 2020.

The report goes on to say to Tre­yarch will assist in devel­op­ing an upcom­ing, yet-to-be-announced free-to-play online game. That game will release in 2023, fill­ing the miss­ing annu­al main­line Call of Duty slot.

Bloomberg also recent­ly report­ed that three Call of Duty games are cur­rent­ly in devel­op­ment. Two of those have already been offi­cial­ly con­firmed: Call of Duty: War­zone 2 and Mod­ern War­fare 2. The third unan­nounced game is the one that is being delayed.
