Modern Warfare and Warzone sequels hyped up by Activision

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Activision is in full tease mode for the Modern Warfare (2019) sequel. A financial call has revealed that after the shortcomings of Vanguard, the company believes 2022's Call of Duty is set to be "the most advanced experience in franchise history."

The financial results are out and — as analyst Nibel has noted, Activision clearly believes in its next game after its troubles with the previous entry.

"The Call of Duty teams delivered substantial gameplay improvements for Vanguard and Warzone in the first quarter. Development on this year’s premium and Warzone experiences, led by Infinity Ward, is proceeding very well." Activision goes on to say that "this year’s Call of Duty is a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, the most successful Call of Duty title to date, and will be the most advanced experience in franchise history."

In addition, "the new free-to-play Warzone experience, which is built from the ground-up alongside the premium game, features groundbreaking innovations to be revealed later this year." Activision has announced that its new Modern Warfare and battle royale will be "a massive evolution of Battle Royale with all-new playspace and a new sandbox mode."

Apparently, the effort going into this game might have pushed COD 2023 into 2024 as the teams switch strategies. Any thoughts on Modern Warfare and the state of Call of Duty? Let us know in the comments below.
