Activision and the developers responsible are currently fully focused on Call of Duty: Warzone, which apparently leads to the revelation of Call of Duty 2021 being delayed.
Call of Duty 2021 reveal will be delayed
A new Call of Duty will be launched also this year, as has been the case for more than 10 years. But it seems that you have to wait a little longer than usual until the new shooter is announced.
A statement by Robert Kostich, who is responsible for Call of Duty at Activision, provides a reason for the assumption. The publisher would like to concentrate initially on Warzone and limit its efforts to the free-to-play title, which now has more than 100 million players.
After being confronted with the question of whether the reveal of Call of Duty 2021 will come a little later this year, Kostich replied: “We’re probably shifting a bit more in that direction. Most of the reason is — you’ve seen what we have in Season 3 this week.”
Since there is “so much to talk about” with regard to the new content in “Warzone”, the company wants to focus on the community and “journey with them.” It was also suggested that the reveal of the new game, which is rumored to be called Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard, will take place again in Call of Duty: Warzone.
“Also, as you saw last year, we did some cool things in terms of integrating the reveal of Black Ops into Warzone,” Kostisch continued. “Those are the things we want to orchestrate and provide to our community, letting them discover Call of Duty themselves in their play experience. That part’s been fun for us and our development teams.”
The formal announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was made last year after a few hints, leaks, and teasers on August 26, 2020, so that an early announcement of Call of Duty 2021 was unlikely anyway. It can be expected that we will learn something about the latest part of the successful series in the summer.
