Report says Call of Duty 2023 game delayed

Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game won’t arrive in 2023. Although this year’s Call of Duty is still in development, next year has been delayed and won’t release in 2023, according to one report from Bloomberg.

This year’s Call of Duty will be a new entry in Modern War franchise and developed by Infinity Ward, Activision announced in the first day of this month. Infinity Ward will also develop a sequel to Call of Duty: Warzone. Bloomberg also reports that there will be a “new free-to-play online title,” released next year, which Treyarch is helping develop.

With last year’s Sledgehammer product Call of Duty: Vanguard, and this year’s entry handled by Infinity Ward, the next Call of Duty entry will come from Treyarch and be part of the Black Ops franchise. After the delay, this new Black Ops game can be expected around 2024.

The delay means that 2023 will be the first year since 2004 that the series does not have a main entry. The Call of Duty franchise first debuted on Windows PC in 2003, meaning the series would also miss out on a major new release for its 20th anniversary.

This delay and the development of Call of Duty 2023 come at a time of major change for Activision Blizzard. Earlier this year, it was announced that Microsoft will buy publisher for $68.7 billion. The deal is expected to be completed by Microsoft’s fiscal year 2023, which will likely make Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game the first game under the Microsoft umbrella.

As reported by Bloomberg, however, the decision to push the game back was not related to the acquisition, but rather to the fact that last year Call of Duty: Vanguard did not meet expectations, leading to concerns that the company might publish new iterations too quickly.
