According to video game industry expert, Jason Schreier, it seems that Activision is planning on releasing a new Call of Duty title in 2023, despite earlier reports confirming that Modern Warfare 2 is indeed here for a 2 year stay. However, a quick correction from Jason confirms that the title will be a repackaged Modern Warfare 2 containing the bonus single-player and multiplayer content that is yet to come.
Call of Duty 2023 – Schrodingers COD
It has been reported multiple times, but we do know that Modern Warfare 2 will be the first Call of Duty to get a full 2-year of support with no title releasing in between. However, there is still Warzone 2, and DMZ also releasing, so that’s also the icing on the cake for fans who may not want to play the same multiplayer for the next 2 years.
However, CharlieIntel recently went through some Activision reports and sighted something that hinted at a premium Call of Duty title releasing in 2023, but Jason was quick to step in and confirm that the title will basically be a “Game of the Year” edition containing all the DLC (Single-player, and multiplayer).
While we have no idea about the release structure or system that will govern the release of the campaign and multiplayer content, all we can do now is wait and see. Back in the PS3 and Xbox 360 days, Activision used to paid map packs for the annual title, but this practice was cut short on the release of the PS4 and Xbox One consoles due to preventing the player base from splitting up.
How this new model will pan out is going to be a curious case, but we can only wait and see how events transpire.
