Activision Just Made a Strange Announcement About Call of Duty 2020

Activision Just Made a Strange Announcement About Call of Duty 2020 1
  • Activision has officially confirmed that a new Call of Duty game will be released in 2020.
  • However, the publisher didn’t announce who would be developing the game.
  • This is an incredibly strange move from the company and suggests it is moving away from its typical development rotation.

On its Q4 investor call, Activision officially confirmed that a new Call of Duty game will be released in 2020. This isn’t surprising, as a new Call of Duty game has been released every year since 2005. The series also makes billions of dollars for the publisher.

What is strange though is that Activision didn’t reveal who will be developing the new game. Call of Duty games had been developed on a rotation, and Treyarch, Sledgehammer Games, and Infinity Ward have been taking turns each year. This year was meant to be Sledgehammer Games’ turn, but a report from Kotaku revealed that development switched to Treyarch as Sledgehammer was having some difficulty.

This development difficulty could be why Activision has chosen not to confirm which developers are making the game. On the same investor call, the publisher also said that it expects Call of Duty 2020 to be less successful at launch as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Activision apparently doesn’t think the new game will sell as well and is keeping the developers’ names to itself. This all suggests that the game will be a stinker. It may be that Call of Duty 2020 has had so many development teams working on it that Activision isn’t sure who to call the game’s “main” developer. Suggesting the game was a team effort also makes it more difficult for gamers to find a place to direct their ire.

There have been bad Call of Duty games before. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which starred Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, was criticized for its space gameplay. Call of Duty: Ghosts, which was the first Call of Duty game released on PS4 and Xbox One, was also poor, said critics. Call of Duty 2020 may not be the only bad Call of Duty game, but the way Activision is acting makes it seem like it could be one of the worst.
