At this point in the year Activision should have already fully presented the new installment of Call of Duty; However, 2020 has been different and we still do not know the official name or the release date, but two things are certain: it will be released this year and it will be a collaboration between Treyarch and Raven Software, as confirmed by Activision in its latest financial report.
“The game already looks amazing and internally, people are having a lot of fun playing both the campaign and the online modes that set developers apart,” said Activision director Bobby Kotick. “So all I can say, in terms of timing, is that I suspect that hear more of it very soon, ” he added.
With this, the rumors about development problems seem to be confirmed, since the three-year cycle that the franchise follows since 2012 pointed to a delivery created by Sledgehammer Games, but for journalist Jason Schreier, reported in the middle of last year that internal conflicts had motivated to a change in the scheme.
“It is official. We are very excited to show you what we have been preparing with Raven Software,” announced the official Treyarch account. “We are excited to announce our collaboration with Treyarch in the delivery of Call of Duty for this year. We can’t wait to show you more!” Added Raven Software, who, incidentally, often plays a supporting role in developing installments for the Call of Duty saga.
The concept behind the game is unknown, as well as its release date, but multiple leaks point to a delivery located in the Cold War and with a launch window in October. Meanwhile, Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone are on their way to Season 5 of their multiplayer, with the battle royale outlined to continue as a parallel game that will even serve to make announcements. “So if you look at Warzone, in particular, it’s not just a great gaming experience, but a great platform for us to share new franchise news and information directly with our community, like never before,” Kotick explained.
