We have heard a few things about 2020’s Call of Duty‘s development, and it looks like the situation has become worse since then.
Previously, we wrote about how the game in the series after Modern Warfare will not be developed by Sledgehammer (they made Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 2014, and WWII in 2017) but Treyarch, who made Black Ops IIII last year, as apparently, Sledgehammer and the support studio Raven wasn’t on the best terms. This train of thought is underlined by the tweet of TheGamingRevolution. He previously had correct information about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare before its announcement. „Current state [of the 2020 Call of Duty game] is 3/10. [Meaning its development is only 30% complete – the ed.] Its name is still being thrown around between “BO5” and “Black Ops” or another Black Ops themed name,” the tweet says.
It means the game’s development is on a rough road, and since it’s only a year (or maybe a bit more, if it is going to be a cross-gen title, meaning it would not only be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Project Scarlett as well) from its launch, it might get some crunch in its development, or it could become one of the weaker titles in the franchise. (The fact that Treyarch didn’t get three years to work on this game but two or even less than that could make it possible…) So take the next year’s Call of Duty with a grain of salt if the rumours are true. (Since the source is reliable, maybe they are.)
Until then, have a look at potentially the best-selling game of the year – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, out on October 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, got a launch trailer already.
