Today a new report has arisen that indicates that Activision will delay the delivery of 2023 of the Call of Duty franchise. For more than a decade at this point, Activision has continued to launch a new Call of Duty title every autumn. And although this trend has been incredibly successful for the giant of the publication of videogames, the entrance of the 2023 series now seems to be pushed to 2024, which makes this the first year since 2004 in which there will not be a New Call of Duty game.
Through Bloomberg, it was reported that the Call of Duty series will be lost a year for the first time in approximately 20 years in 2023. Although this is a drastic movement for activision as a whole, it became clear that many new content of Call of Duty It will still arrive within 2023. Specifically, the editor plans to continue supporting Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (which will be launched this fall) as well as Call of Duty: War Zone 2 that is also said to be in process.
So, why activision now seeks to delay the game Call of Duty 2023? Well, the fact that the company is about to be acquired by Microsoft next year Surely plays an important role in this. Advertised earlier this year, Microsoft confirmed that it will acquire Activision for approximately $ 70 billion in 2023, which will take the editorial giant to join Xbox Game Studios. Since Activision no longer needs to operate as an independent entity next fall (and, therefore, does not depend solely on the income of Call of Duty to keep the company afloat), it seems that those responsible have chosen to delay the next game of the series. To give you more time in the oven.
As for the delivery of Call of Duty this year, Infinity Ward has already confirmed that he is working in a sequel to the 2019 launch of the duty: Modern War. Although the details surrounding this game have not yet been disclosed, an adequate ad the game should be made in the coming months. As for zona of war 2 there is still very little that we know about the scope of the next iteration of the Battle Royale shooter, but again, more details should arise along 2022.
What do you think that the Call of Duty series finally jumps one year within 2023? Do you think this is a good movement in general? Let me know in the comments or send me a message on Twitter a @ mooreman12.
