Two new Call Of Duty titles on Activision’s anvil

New Delhi: Activision has revealed it is working on two big Call of Duty titles for 2022. One is a sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the other is a “new Warzone experience,” according to a blog post on Friday. The news broke on social media, primarily through streamers and other content creators, alongside a small blog post from the development team, according to whom both of which will be “designed together from the ground-up”. Both games run on the same brand-new engine, and Infinity Ward is leading the development of Modern Warfare 2 and the Warzone sequel, it said. While few details have been given about Warzone 2, Activision has said that players can look forward to a “massive evolution” of the battle royale formula. This will include an “all-new playspace” and a new sandbox mode, neither of which were discussed, though Activision is promising some big things. Activision has been teasing Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 for some time now, so the announcement is not a total surprise. Development of the new Call of Duty game and this new Warzone experience will be led by Infinity Ward, the studio that made Modern Warfare, Infinite Warfare, Ghosts, and other Call of Duty titles (including the original). Activision has also further announced how it will implement changes on the current Warzone experience, which has been heavily criticized in recent weeks due to a high amount of bugs, exploits, and the prevalence of cheaters. Activision Blizzard as a whole has come under significant scrutiny following California’s lawsuit against the company that alleged it fostered a workplace culture promoting sexual harrassment and discrimination. In January, Microsoft announced its intent to buy Activision Blizzard for a whopping $68.7 billion. While Call of Duty would certainly be a valuable Xbox-exclusive property, statements from Microsoft since the acquisition news suggest the company plans to keep Call of Duty and other Activision Blizzard games on multiple platforms
