Call of Duty hasn’t missed a year since 2005, and it’s not going to start now. A post revealed that Activision is still on track with 2021’s Call of Duty and will release it by Q4 of this year. The publishing giant also confirmed that the game is spearheaded by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: WW2. The official Twitter account of the studio even posted a joke related to their older game. Press F to Pay Respect.

“This is a built for next-generation experience with stunning visuals across campaign, multiplayer, and co-operative modes of play, designed to both integrate with and enhance the existing COD ecosystem,” said Activision COO Daniel Alegre.

It seems like this year’s COD will feature multiple key game elements that many players want. However, whether the co-op will be yet another zombie iteration is yet to be seen. The game is designed for next-gen consoles and will be integrated with Warzone like how Black Ops Cold War was integrated.

Previous rumors have suggested that the game will be set during World War 2. I hope this isn’t true as COD: WW2 wasn’t something to write home about. Even if it’s based on WW2, I would love to see a campaign based on the Eastern Front.

It's no secret that Sledgehammer Games had some development trouble. That’s why Treyarch had to step in and rush their own game, COD: Black Ops Cold War, and release it a year early. We will soon find out if the development studio was able to get back on its feet. Their last two games aren’t exactly loved by the COD community but maybe this new game will be different. As of right now, there is no official trailer available. We will let you know when more information comes out.
